- Our Mission -
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit production company. We work with charities, artists, storytellers and sponsors in order to create the most impactful version of their stories and help get them out into the world. This output includes, but is not limited to, scripted and unscripted television, narrative and documentary films, print, web, radio and live events.
Bottom line: We want to highlight and amplify the good things that are happening in the world.
THE BASIC IDEA:
We pair companies with innovative non-profit organizations and socially concious stories to create branded content that aligns with a social mission; and then sell that content in traditional and non-traditional spaces.
We want to bring organizations and individuals making positive social contributions to the forefront of popular culture. For example, instead of “brought to you by Microsoft,” we’d like to see “brought to you by The American Red Cross.”
When the content turns a profit, we all win:
➤ Companies generate financial profit
➤ Nonprofits build significant awareness through media exposure
➤ Fundraising efforts for important social causes are amplified through audience exposure.
We work with COMPANIES and nonprofits to create traditional media, as well as non-traditional media (YouTube, podcasts, etc.).
Entertainment creation is what Hollywood does best, so why not use what we’re already doing to help the organizations who need it? Wouldn’t you be more inclined to watch a show like “ER” if you knew it was supporting Doctors Without Borders? Or "Glee" if you knew it was supporting "The Young storyteller's Program?"
Does this sound intriguing?
