Content creation is exploding globally. The film and television industry supports 2.6 million jobs and pays $177B+ in wages per year in the U.S. alone. But the industry can’t keep up, because the way that stories are brought to life are outdated, inefficient, arduous, completely insular and opaque.
Creating content is a highly complicated, expensive, collaborative, logistically challenging process that requires bringing hundreds of highly skilled independent contractors together in a distant location for a period of time that still operates using paper, PDFs, email, and software from 1999. It’s a network-driven industry, with no online network. It’s an industry that desperately needs more diversity and people in the workforce, but no one knows how to “break in”. Impact intends to change how the stories that shape our global culture get made.
Co-Founded by Academy Award winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, Impact is a vertical network that connects entertainment industry professionals with network-driven tools and collaborative software that enables them to be more productive and successful at their jobs. Our mission is for movies and shows to come together faster, shoot smoother, wrap earlier and be more inclusive.
The opportunity is huge. The industry experience and world class financial backing are all here. We just need you.
