Studio Dream Ink


We are a donation funded open source Animation studio based out of Salt Lake City, We specialize in both 2D and 3d productions, with the emphasis on creating open source content. Pretty much we will have a website that houses the studio productions. Assets and story productions content is all found on our website where the stories will grow with a global community. We hope to house the largest growing 3d asset archive in our website. So where does the company take in revenue? 1) User donations for the content much like NPR (National Public Radio) which helps pay for operating costs including broadcasting along with creation software, and distribution of content. 2) are 3d archive will have the option to donate to the creaters. 3) Productions sales of the content and sponsorship.


Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Our customers are those sick of Disney content. We are looking to cater to a more adult viewer, Think Adult swim but with a higher production value.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Disney studios has a monopoly on the animation industry, and other user content never makes it to the market. Our studio serves to give a voice to a larger community.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The start up costs are minimal we just need some money for software, Maya 2017 and Photoshop to create our content. The website is $10 a year to keep on running, unlimited potential for earnings, best of all theres next to no risk for running the business. Our office is the website, the creators are around the world, there is no shortage of content from around the world.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

My team consists of a bunch of rag tag film and animations students not looking to work for a large animation studio. I have three graduating students specializing in specific areas of animation. I am the director and Storyboard/concept artist. Alexis Anderson is our environment and co/concept artist. Emelee Coatee is our co/director and scriptwriter and producer. Daniel Smith is our 3d sculpture and It guy. Our team advantage is the world is aiding it. Imagine what content can be created from a world venue?
