Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2016
Feldspar Studios, a digital-first animation startup announced its partnership with Science Inc. to launch a portfolio of branded animation channels and properties for a mobile generation. The partnership will combine Science Inc’s strength in direct-to-consumer audience development with Feldspar’s expertise in rapid prototyping and content and brand creation to produce quality animation for social and mobile channels. Feldspar’s character and story driven properties will be launched, tested and built for a digital audience and monetized through sponsorships, content syndication and licensing.
The first channel to launch this month is PoppycockTV, which targets young adults with irreverent and offbeat humor. The channel will utilize a mixture of unique animation styles and formats to leverage the inherent characteristics of various social and mobile platforms.
Teens and millennials have few native destinations for animated content outside of TV and spend over 70% of their time consuming media on mobile devices. By leveraging its rapid development and production engine, Feldspar aims to transform the traditional studio process. Additionally, now content can be distributed directly to digital and mobile channels like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat where teens and young adults are spending their time.
“We learned a lot about the challenges of the current Hollywood process during the decades we spent in traditional content development and commercialization. Animators and writers want their work to reach audiences in a timely manner and our mission at Feldspar is to leverage technology to improve speed to market and iterate to enable the best content to rise to the top,” said John Attanasio, Co-founder of Feldspar Studios.
“Science is thrilled to partner with Feldspar to scale their business and leverage our knowledge of growing digital audiences for content consumption. John and Luisa have built a team that is taking a page from the lean startup playbook of Silicon Valley and applying it to the creative IP world. From our work with digital commerce brands like Dollar Shave Club, to social media influencers at Famebit, we know that today’s largest consumer demographic, millennials, want products and content to come to them rather than forcing them to seek it out. Feldspar shows tremendous potential to be the new studio model to get the best shows in front of the largest relevant audiences,” said Michael Jones, CEO of Science Inc.
