Raising Bold, Daring, Diverse Voices in Film & TV
Seed&Spark is changing the entertainment industry to reflect the diversity of the world we actually live in.
With a radically transparent model, Seed&Spark uses crowdfunding and subscription streaming to connect unique new voices making movies and shows to diverse audiences hungry for the stories and storytellers who reflect their experiences.
Seed&Spark’s crowdfunding platform has the highest success rate, project size, and audience per project of any platform in the world — 2.5x that of Kickstarter, in every category. Over 900 movies + shows have raised a combined $12+M on Seed&Spark. Their subscription base is growing 10% week over week, paying filmmakers fair royalties that are 100-200X what the major streaming platforms deliver.
They’re a double-bottom-line company: built to actively increase diversity and inclusion in entertainment because it’s about time, and because it’s where the biggest business opportunity lies. Even though productions with diverse casts enjoy the highest box office returns, ROI, ratings, and social media engagement, it will be decades before equal representation is achieved in Hollywood. On Seed&Spark, it’s happening now — for key roles in new movies + shows on the platform, 82% are women and over 50% are people of color; 30% of productions have all-female teams, and the subscription streaming library has gender parity among directors today.
