Black Salt is a multifaceted transmedia franchise with strong international appeal. The story will be told across multiple media platforms, with each element making a distinct contribution to the audience’s awareness of the Black Salt brand. Black Salt is an epic thriller merging the world of modern-day espionage and political intrigue with the ancient world of martial arts.
The franchise includes, but is not limited to, the following: Black Salt collectible items, all with integrated branding opportunities: Apparel Line, Comic Books, Trading Cards, Toys, Animated Series, Video Games and Feature Film Trilogy. Ratti’s main goal is to release the comic book series and the apparel line to build the brand and establish the property as a bankable IP.
“We feel there are several small factors that set Black Salt apart from other comics. First, there is still a big demand for the action martial arts genre. This genre is a niche target market of over 100 million martial artist and enthusiasts worldwide. Secondly, our grass roots marketing campaign has already generated a buzz of more than 1.5 million hits on the website blacksaltfilm.com. Thirdly, Black Salt has a fully developed feature film project that could go into pre-production immediately” said Owen Ratliff, CEO of Ratti Entertainment LLC.
