storyrocket

The Global Marketplace that connects writers and producers to create great film, tv, theatre and web.

PROBLEM

Scripts, novels and books are the lifeblood of the Entertainment World.

As demand for content increases with new outlets such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Youtube and others… writers and producers are frustrated with the “old boy network” that currently “green lights” content into production. Millions of writers, from around the world, have no access to industry “gatekeepers,” nor can find representation for their books and scripts. Without connections, writers have no way of breaking into the Industry and producers are frustrated that they see only work from a small pool of writers. The Industry is ripe for disruption.

SOLUTION

STORYROCKET is using technology to disrupt the Entertainment Sector.

The Online Marketplace allows writers to showcase their work to an audience of content-hungry producers. Writers are no longer subject to “gatekeepers” to have their stories seen.

MARKET

STORYROCKET’s total marketplace is in the millions.

Our community of writers is made up of two main groups; novelist (books) and screenwriters/playwrights for film, television, theater, web or any new media. According to Bowker in 2015 there were 727,125 self-published books in the U.S. alone. In each year there are 1M+ books published overall. In an attempt to standardize a comprehensive catalog, the Library of Congress with the help of Google Books came up with a total 129,864,880 unique book titles. This number is as of 2010 and does not account for self-published titles or scripts and plays.

Not all of the books, referenced by Bowker and Google Books, are production material, but with so many cable channels we estimate 50% of all books can become potential customers. The vast majority of these writers are unrepresented to the Production Community. We estimate that in the U.S. Market alone, STORYROCKET’s potential of new projects is 600K+ books and scripts per year. And according to UNESCO, each year 2.2M books are published worldwide, giving us scalability in subsequent years.

The other side of the Marketplace is the Global Production Community. This is composed of producers, directors, film and television executives, production houses, studios, networks, actors and so on. The number from the U.S. Department of Labor states 421K+ people employed in the production of film, television and web content. STORYROCKET is exportable to all film producing countries. We intend to expand “in-language" to the top 15 film and television markets of the World. Including Canada, the U.K., Australia, India, China, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Colombia and Argentina.

MARKETING STRATEGY

In our 1st phase, STORYROCKET is focused on the “Writing Community,” because content is needed to attract producers and production companies. Novelists are under-represented and yet becoming highly sought after by the Film & Television Community as they fuel box office hits such as Harry Potter, Girl on a Train, Twilight, The Hunger Games, 50 Shades of Gray and others. We’re targeting writers at best-in-business trade shows, such as our launch at SXSW and BEA (Book Expo America) at the Javits Center in NY, the largest Book Fair in the U.S. and F.I.L.,the Guadalajara Book Fair, the largest book fair in Iberoamerica.
