BRANDS WE’VE HELPED

In 2006, we were on the forefront of the web video revolution, creating one of the first hit web shows: Wallstrip.

We sold our company to CBS in 2007 and joined the network's interactive division full time.

At CBS, we worked with brands, network executives, and showrunners to create original branded entertainment properties and network show extensions.

We built a technology unit to create web apps, mobile apps, games, and social media tools for branded campaigns.

Now an independent studio, we work closely with network, brand, and technology partners to push the social entertainment envelope.

WE ARE SOCIAL ENTERTAINMENT
