WE DO THIS THROUGH OUR QUALIFICATIONS AS A FISCAL SPONSOR, OUR GEAR RENTAL DISCOUNTS WITH SALES AND RENTAL HOUSES AS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT, AND OUR IN-HOUSE RESOURCES COVERING EVERYTHING STANDARD IN THE SPECTRUM OF A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION COMPANY:  CREW, GEAR, AN ANNUAL INSURANCE POLICY, OFFICE SPACE, A SCREENING ROOM, AND GUIDANCE . OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH CREW, PERFORMERS, AGENCIES, POST-HOUSES, AND RENTAL HOUSES EMPOWERS EVERY PROJECT WE INCUBATE.  WE AIM TO ENCOURAGE A RIGOROUS CREATIVE PROCESS WITH A FOCUS ON STORY-TELLING THAT IS RISKY AND EXPERIMENTAL, TO ACTIVELY CONTRIBUTE TO THE DIVERSIFICATION OF THE CURRENT CLIMATE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY,  TO FOSTER A LESS DIVIDED FILM COMMUNITY,  TO CHALLENGE AND DISRUPT COMMON NOTIONS OF WHAT'S COMMERCIALLY VIABLE.  TO UNIFY THE BRILLIANT INDEPENDENTLY FLOATING MINDS IN THE ABYSS

– James Cameron
