Post Close Update :)
Dear Investors and Community:
It's been a few weeks since our close of Round 2 and we've been hard at work. We've added three new producers to the platform (see bios below), including a producer who covers TV, film and reality TV; an award-winning documentarian; and a TV movie / holiday movie specialist.
We've also executed deals on nine new Originals that came from storytellers participating in our incubator (I've included some summaries below).
We also took a 2-day offsite retreat, reconnecting to our passion and intention as a team/company and also to build our plans for 2020 (it's going to be a big year)!
We hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season, and also New Year's Eve!
