Rachel Levens, Director Hyena
"I had an absolute pleasure working with Miriam Rune for Hyena at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival... I felt like she was also present and always presenting new ideas months prior to when we were in Scotland up until closing night. Her creativity truly showed when she asked Paradise Palms if we could do a photo call and take promotional shots for a show. She listened to me about the ideas I had for the shots in order to best have these photos translate to the production...
Miriam is a kind hearted, professional, forward thinking, timely, and thorough individual. I felt fully supported and encouraged by here at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which at times can be overwhelming and gruelling, but her positivity and hard work kept us grounded. She helped us reach our goals and needs as a company and I felt fully supported by her presence and creative ideas at the Fringe."
Romana Soutus, Writer and Performer Hyena
"Miriam was an incredible help to us taking our show from New York to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
It was our first time at the festival, and Miriam navigated us through the chaos with grace and ease. For months she gave us insightful and alternative ways of getting press and publicity that helped us stand out from the crowd. Once we got there, Miriam was there to help us in our journey and make sure that we were taken care of.
Miriam delivered on everything I had hoped and gave us so much more. Hire Miriam Rune!!!"
Jilly Bond, Producer & Performer Criminology 303
"Miriam was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end of the project – and I hope we’ll work together again!
On the recommendation of the Fringe Media office, I rang Miriam to talk about the project as it seemed exactly in her sphere of interest – she was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and generous with her time from that moment...
Miriam also built our social media profile in the months leading up to the Festival – she was full of ideas and worked diligently to attract attention on this platform. She brought various web publications to our attention, encouraging us to contribute to these as a way of raising our profile, and their interest in our show. We are convinced that both these aspects of her work led to our pre-bookings of 10% - which is apparently unusual for a company like us, attending the Festival for the first time...
Throughout the three months we worked with Miriam, she was invariably good-humoured, resilient, funny and encouraging. I cannot recommend her too highly!"
Sandy Bruns, Producer My Leonard Cohen
"We contracted Miriam Rune as publicist for My Leonard Cohen at the Edinburgh Festival, and are very happy with the results we achieved. For the main part, we communicated with Miriam by text and online, and she always replied immediately and with good answers to our many queries. Nothing was too much trouble and she couldn't have been more attentive...
As well as getting the word out about our show, the goal was to get EARLY reviews, and to sell lots of tickets. This was all achieved, with Miriam's help. She also set up lots of 'bits and pieces' of publicity, which contributed to the whole...
We have since recommended Miriam to a colleague who is producing Lennon: Through A Glass Onion, currently touring the UK and Ireland, and have no hesitation in recommending her further."
Sally Lewis, Writer How Is Uncle John?
I discovered Miriam on the Edinburgh Fringe media office site, and what a gem of a discovery it was. Miriam proved to be an invaluable part of the team for my debut show How Is Uncle John?.
Hard working, tenacious, professional and incredibly diplomatic in her approach, Miriam guided us through the process of maximizing public awareness through a variety of methods, including social media, web interviews and focus groups, all of which helped to help boost our pre ticket sales. When our show opened Miriam was on hand to follow up on opportunities and ensure our social media campaign ran efficiently.
Miriam dealt with our questions, enquiries, offered suggestions and ideas to promote our show and engage our audience. She was organized, diligent, engaging and extremely generous in both her time and her ability. She was a delight to work with and got on incredibly well with the rest of my team.
I cannot recommend her highly enough and I hope to work with her again in the very near future.
