What We Do

We are the leading creative impact agency for film and entertainment. We work with filmmakers and change makers to amplify awareness, expose injustice, and drive activism, with the goal of advancing social change. With offices in Los Angeles and New York, we provide unmatched experience, services and influence. This powerful combination allows us to seamlessly handle all aspects of a social action campaign, from strategy and planning, to project management and activation. Depending on the type of impact our partner is committed to, tactics can include impact strategy, partnership development, grassroots screening tours, digital engagement, advocacy campaigns and impact measurement.

  • Social Action Strategy

    Through research and discovery we develop a comprehensive strategic plan and budget for your film’s social action campaign.

  • Partnership Development

    We are the experts in finding the experts, and we work with these experts to build and execute the film’s campaign

  • Grassroots Screenings

    We book the film on national and international screening tours, designed to maximize views and impact

  • Online Engagement

    Web, social media, email or mobile – we will build you and online engagement campaigns to meet your goals.

  • Measurement

    We use social media and conversation tracking tools on all our campaigns, and partner with others to measure and analyze the film’s resulting impact.

  • Consulting

    We work on a monthly campaign rate, but also provide consulting in any of the above areas at an hourly rate

Film Campaigns

Since 2012, we've had the pleasure of working on over 45 films and impact campaigns. Right now, our projects are focused on creating new avenues for discussing criminal justice reform in U.S., raising awareness around the effects of poverty on our education system, addressing community violence through artistic expression, supporting conversations on feminism with millennials, saving endangered species and curbing climate change, and calling for gun violence prevention solutions in America. Check out these brilliant films and how they are creating lasting social change.
