ReelwUrld™

Making the future of filmmaking social

Introduction

ReelwUrld™ is a social film studio that makes movies with the world. We’ve built patent pending technology that acts like a film studio in your pocket. We wrap technology around any story in the form of an app to help you make cinematic movies, shows, commercials and more on your phone.

Highlights

  • ReelwUrld™ is taking the massive scale of Hollywood movies & shows and merging it with social media to create a new form of filmmaking.
  • The audience makes everything together: movies, shows, commercials and more.
  • Anyone with a phone can join and create, just like social media––but within a story that connects all of the content.
  • With the crowd creating their own characters and stories with us, ReelwUrld™ will have a catalogue of intellectual property (IP) larger than any major Hollywood studio.
  • We see the crowdsourced cinematic universe model as ReelwUrld™’s most powerful offering to the world of entertainment.
“We haven’t seen technology that allows for fans to freely and legally tell audio-visual stories set in the universe of their favorite franchises. ReelwUrld is now building that software, and it can well be a game changer.”
- Jeff Gomez, CEO Starlight Runner Entertainment, Advisor to Disney’s Star Wars & Marvel

Problem

Every sector of business needs a better way to reach their audience.

Solution

Wherever you are in the world, your story matters. Our patent pending technology empowers fans, and gives studios, networks, and brands a completely new way to collaborate.

Invest in Entertainment with Impact

ReelwUrld™ is building a new sector of entertainment that’s more creatively and financially inclusive. More authentic stories create a better world. The time is now to band together and share in the success of content and technology.

Justice For Hire & The Crowdsourced Cinematic Universe Model

ReelwUrld™ wraps technology around any story in the form of an app––we call these “wUrlds.” This is how we actually makes movies with the world. Justice for Hire, aka JFH, is our original Intellectual Property (IP) and our first crowdsourced cinematic universe. The JFH cast includes hundreds of characters created and portrayed by fans worldwide. We see the crowdsourced cinematic universe model as ReelwUrld™’s most powerful offering to the world of entertainment.

The JFH story imagines a world with crowdsourced justice—ordinary people can open the JFH app and either hire a hero, or become a hero and get paid. JFH won Best Web Series and Best Visual Effects at WarnerMedia’s Urban Action Showcase 2020. Check out the trailer and an explainer video below.

What is JFH?

What is JFH

Business Model

Our initial business model is similar to an ad agency, supercharged by technology and Hollywood franchise development experience: we work with brands to align their stories with the stories of their audiences, and then direct the audience to create content about that shared narrative.

This model allows us to generate revenue from our services, our technology, and from the content and experiences ReelwUrld™ communities create, including: licensing deals, in-app purchases, in-app crowdfunding, IP development, production deals, brand sponsorships, audience management, education, and advertising.

Market

Market

ReelwUrld™ aims to be the hub for creative fandom—the biggest conductor of collective storytelling in the world. Any company or person that wants to connect with or build an audience is within our addressable market.

Competitive Landscape

We think differently about social video, because great movies have great directors behind them. ReelwUrld™’s approach is to simplify the directorial process, which has been overlooked by editing software providers and social video apps.

Our technology guides storytelling, provides camera direction, and instructs collaboration between community members. The results are cinematic videos that are united by story.

    We’re proud to announce ReelwUrld has partnered with #WashTheHate. We’ve called on our first crowdsourced cinematic universe, Justice For Hire, to amplify #WashTheHate’s message by releasing our first nationwide mission for Justice For Hire’s heroes.

    Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, there has been a startling rise in hate incidents against Asian Americans. #WashTheHate’s mission is to promote solidarity across all communities as we battle a common enemy - hate. In this time of unprecedented crisis, our country needs unity, not division. Join us.
