Our Mission

 

WE EXPLORE SOLUTIONS

The 21st century is one of global, complex and interconnected challenges. We explore them with a solutions-oriented approach.

WE SUPPORT CHANGE-BUILDERS

Around the planet, outstanding people and organizations strive to build a more beautiful world. We want to support them.

WE REIGNITE HOPE

By focusing on urgent problems and narrow perspectives, mainstream media are fueling a general feeling of despair and helplessness. We show that change is always possible.

Our entire world is made of stories.
If we want to change it, let’s change the way we look at it.

Our Approach

1. THE VISION

What vision of the world are we longing for?

What vision of the world or personal motivations are urging us to act? Is it a feeling of injustice we’re willing to repair? Is it fear we’re yearning to transform into hope? And what would the world look like if these intuitions become real?

3. THE FORMAT

 How shall that story be told?

We live in a fast-paced world, in which one can easily feel overwhelmed by the continuous and often pessimistic flow of information.

We aim to balance that trend through solutions-oriented stories addressed at the right audience in the right format (e.g. documentary, fiction film, TV series, web-video, podcast, comic book etc).

 

2. THE STORY

What story could best embody that vision?

Our entire world is made of stories.  Since ever in History, human beings have defined themselves, their values and culture through them. Stories shape who we are, how we think and how we behave.

4. THE STRATEGY

How will the story reach the right audience and inspire the desired change?

Impact production is a well-established concept in the Anglo-saxon world yet slow to emerge in Europe. It has however the potential to revolutionize film’s production and distribution.

Thanks to our team’s professional background and network, we design strategic campaigns allowing to maximize a project’s outreach and impact along its entire production line.
