Project Zebra is the first of its kind platform created to support young visual artists as they create and present their film and video endeavors to the public. It is designed to allow young artists to grow, explore, be entertained, motivate and learn. It combines studio resources, financial support and a distribution platform that allows new voices to develop their own skills while acquiring expert creative, production and financial support.
Project Zebra is for young artists - by young artists - but managed by an expert team of seasoned TV and film executives. It is a hybrid model that combines multiple business concepts, that targets a young audience of filmmakers in need of support. It’s a virtual “Dreamworks” studio, with a “Kickstarter” financial component and “USC Film School” expertise, all housed within a curated digital platform for online and mobile.
