One of our founding principles is to listen to our consumers and focus on progressive and innovative storytelling. With the emergence of personalized content consumption trends, the strategy behind the launch of these two new verticals is to focus on specific audience segments and content genres.
‘Psych’ develops and produces content that is focused on horror and paranormal - a genre that is home to some of the fastest-growing audience franchises in the world. Horror is a distinct segment which requires a specific skill set of storytelling and story crafting. By adding a host of writers and directors and collaborating with global experts in this field like Crypt TV we plan on creating innovative and engaging platform-agnostic content in these verticals that will connect with audiences worldwide. Our aim is pure-play, bone-chilling horror.
‘Filters’ creates and produces content that focuses on the young adult demographic. There are multiple films and originals being developed along with ‘The Hood’, including the remake of ‘Missing’ and an adaptation of the popular book ‘Along Came a Spyder’, to name a few.
