Publicity, Marketing & Business Development
All business is show business whether you need a press release as a first time publicity seeker; want name recognition for a new project launch; or, are an entrepreneur with a new product or service to promote. Anyone can become newsworthy with the right PR support behind them.
As top level publicists and marketing specialists, we rank at the top of a Google Search out of millions of web pages which confirms we must be doing something right when it comes to publicity. Kaya Morgan and the IMAGINE MediaWorks team has developed the media contacts to affordably reach millions of news media and consumers in any market segment. No one has the ability to nurture and shape an individual or business more than talented publicity professionals who can create an image that turns an unknown individual or relatively un-heard-of company into a household word. And, should you require crisis management to counteract bad publicy, it is critical to react as swiftly as possible. With our inside knowledge and contacts within the news industry, we are here as your PR counsel to help control and redirect the output of any negative publicity both nationally and internationally.
In 2013, we began work with the production team of the new IMAX 3D film, Dragons: Real Myths and Unreal Creatures working on the first global screening in London at the British Film Institute, IMAX cinema. The film stars renowned actor, Max von Sydow, who has been in countless films and received numerous awards over the years. Few actors have had such an esteemed and historical career. French-Canadian actress, Laurence Leboeuf, and Serge Houde most recognized for his starring role in the Emmy-nominated TV series, The Kennedy's play opposite Max von Sydow.
In 2012, we began working with Penthouse to secure new locations for their clubs both outside and inside the U.S.; and, to help secure the foreign rights to publishing the magazine around the world.
In 2012, working directly with the producers of the show, we successfully secured funding for Tony n' Tina's Wedding to move from Planet Hollywood to Bally's. They continue to celebrate their success in the upstairs showroom.

Talent included A-list star power of comedian, Dane Cook along with Broadway veterans Emmy-award winner, Josh Hamilton, one of the “most talented actresses in Hollywood” (NYT), Julia Stiles, and rising new star, Heather Jane Rolff.
We began work in late 2011 with Fiore Films, to produce the infamous Gotti film In the Shadow of My Father, starring John Travolta, Al Pacino, Ben Foster, Kelly Preston, Chazz Palminteri, and (yet to be confirmed) Lindsay Lohan. Now backed by billionaire, Ted Field, filming is scheduled to begin at an undisclosed location in New York City; directed by Barry Levinson, with screenplay by Leo Rossi and James Toback. This is one of the most controversial films tentatively scheduled for release in 2013.
We have also worked in 2012 with the Rick Thomas Magic & Tigers show based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show had been running at the Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood after closure of the Sahara Hotel. He is currently touring in Asia and Europe. Rick has been honored as Magician of the Year by his peers at the Academy of Magical Arts, voted Stage Magician of the Year, televised on the World Magic Awards, appeared on two NBC Special's - World's Greatest Magic, starred in his own ABC Special - The Magic of Rick Thomas, and toured 30 countries.

Kaya Morgan: As a leading industry media professional, Kaya Morgan remains a highly-respected, contributing freelance journalist with over 160 national and international articles and 13 cover stories to her credit. As our founder, Morgan has worked in the media industry most of her adult life, beginning with a highly successful modeling career that prompted a relocation to China long before the country was a sought after global concern. This led to extensive travel throughout Asia, Europe and the South Pacific. Upon return to the U.S., Morgan had honed her entrepreneurial skills by creating several successful import/export ventures before launching a creative writing business based in the San Francisco area.
Not long after moving to Hawai, Morgan embarked upon a distinguished career in the publishing industry spanning almost 20 years as a world-class publisher with over 12 premiere magazines to her credit. From innovative advertising supported specialty magazines, she soon expanded the business to books with the 224-page, hardcover, hotel in-room guidebook, The HawaiiGuide, featuring Tom Selleck. During her tenure as the official publisher for the PGA in Hawaii, she also created a comprehensive, full-color, 242-page, coffee table book, the celebrated Hawaii Guide to Golf showcasing both private and public courses throughout the islands. Under Morgan's direction, its pre-publication sales campaign garnered over one-quarter million dollars in revenue.
Morgan also founded and was publisher of Island Home, a high-quality, glossy, 200-page, affluent lifestyle magazine that showcased the architecture and interior design of multimillion dollar homes of the rich and famous, world-class resorts and unique travel destinations from around the globe.

Annually, the company also published a 204-page, Island Home Sourcebook showcasing architects, interior designers and design resources, the Hawaii Business Guide, the Relocation Guide as well as many other custom publishing projects.
As owner and publisher, Morgan was responsible for the creative direction of all sales scripts, media kits, subscriptions, mass mailings, cover letters and all collateral print material used in the pre-publication sales campaigns, as well as overseeing the productivity of the sales team. In a small but highly-competitive market, the business quickly became the number one in the state in its industry.
