Impact is an entertainment start-up founded by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. Our core mission is to solve problems for entertainment professionals by building new technologies to create a more democratized, accessible, efficient and transparent entertainment landscape.
Finding, vetting and hiring the people who physically bring shows and movies to life, is often a chaotic, slow, broken and offline process that relies on small interpersonal networks. With productions shutting down, restarting, and new shows trying to mount crews and get off the ground, the pandemic shone a light on the desperate need for new tools to organize the production side of the industry.
Our goal is to bring the crew hiring process into the future by connecting crew, department heads, and producers on one easy (and free!) platform. You can use it to:
- SEARCH for local crew in town or for an out-of-town shoot.
- CONNECT with other crew-members for referrals, questions, networking and while working together on set.
- LIST your special skills in a personal bio whether it be costuming, operating drones, or blowing up buildings.
- Streamline HIRING by sending and responding to AVAIL CHECKS
- And UPLOAD links, reels, and images to your personal ONLINE PORTFOLIO of projects you have created or helped create.
We hope you take a look at what we've built thus far and stay along with us as we continue to grow our platform. If you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns, please reach out to Impact Support.
