It all began when we asked, ‘why are awesome stories still a one-way experience?’

IF YOU FORGOT WHAT YOU currently KNOW ABOUT MOVIE OR TV PRODUCTION, HOW WOULD YOU PRODUCE BLOCKBUSTER ENTERTAINMENT TO SUIT TODAY’S CONSUMER?

Since the 1890s, blockbuster entertainment has been screen only. With this closed mindset, from the first motion pictures to contemporary Streaming Video On Demand (SVOD), the industry has also continued to put up fences around distribution. Additionally, the huge expense of film-only production unintentionally (or intentionally) has limited fan experiences. Consequently, this model can provide only a few revenue generating opportunities.

Today’s consumer uses multiple screens, assorted social media platforms and is connected to multiple communities. When they become a fan, they want more experiences and interactions – more opportunities to dive deep into the story, and to feel connected to the characters and other fans.

Forever Has Fallen® is blockbuster storytelling for today’s fans. The story is told with minimal film use and with the addition of an entire fictional world. This world is created via websites, social media channels, mobile phone and live events; it sets a new benchmark for story, character and community interaction.

Our model is far more cost-effective at producing blockbuster storytelling and delivers greater consumer value with a host of new commercial and marketing benefits. This includes fusing the entertainment with game-like challenges that reward fans. There is also an entire economic system integrating with the story, where fans can buy, earn, trade and sell.
