Seed&Spark is the only subscription platform dedicated to making entertainment more diverse and inclusive. We’ve combined the convenience of streaming for audiences with the career building power of crowdfunding for filmmakers, delivering to audiences the chance not just to watch exceptional movies and shows you can’t find anywhere else, but to support 12 new projects a year. Our crowdfunding platform has the highest campaign success rate in the world, and more than 800 movies and shows have raised $8M+ since we launched, and more than 170 titles are currently streaming, with 3 new releases per week. We’re currently running the #HometownHeroes crowdfunding rally where, in addition to raising funds and gathering audiences for their productions, filmmakers are competing for the chance to have their films executive produced by the Duplass Brothers.
I started the company because after producing my first feature film I realized the business was broken – there was not a clear path to sustainability and that could be solved with tools the internet was offering. I made that first feature film because I didn’t see myself represented on screen in a way that I was proud of and I wanted to combine these things - sustainability and representation – into…my life’s work, I guess?
I also make a webseries called F*ck Yes!, which is a sexy anthology about sexual consent.
AMA about crowdfunding, starting a tech platform, and the webseries. (I do not promote myself as any kind of expert about sex, BTW.)
