Our goal is to create meaningful entertainment with a social impact.
And we need your help!
Tired of watching boring, derivative entertainment? So are we. And we want to do something about it.
By engaging with our Artists - liking, commenting, discussing, sponsoring and purchasing their work - you provide an endorsement that our sponsors and financiers will find impossible to ignore.
To further this goal, we invite you - the audience - to help us create stories that you really care about.
- SEAM LABS - "Where Creativity finds its Audience"
We have both Public and Private (subscribers only) forums devoted to story development.
SEAM LABS is open to the public. We have a variety of 'Groups' devoted to different topics and experimental projects. Each Group has its own, independent forum. To see all the posts across all the Group forums, click here.
Group Forums are devoted to specific, experimental projects and ad-hoc teams.
If you see something you like - say so. Give your praise or constructive criticism. If you want to help out by pitching in, then feel free to do so. You may have storytelling skills you never realised you had! Many of the groups have their own forums. Join in the conversation and see what happens. This is "Audience Driven Entertainment".
The best place to start is by reading and contributing to our "Topical Issues" forum. Here, we discuss various news items, social trends, and topics that we think could be used to write interesting stories. Your engagement is vital. By telling us what you care about, we can tell stories that satisfy your passions (and ours).
Check out the sidebar on the right to see a list of Groups.
Create a Group of your own. Create a fan group for an artists that you admire, but who doesn't have much exposure. Or, maybe you have an interesting idea that you want to suggest to the community, but don't know what to do next to take it forwards? Why not create a group to explore that idea and see what happens?
- SEAM Professionals Forums
- SEAM Productions - "Radical entertainment incubator"
SEAM Projects came out of the SEAM LAB and are now on our production slate. We are searching for sponsorship and finance. Periodically we will release products. You can help us by purchasing those products. For example, our latest non-fiction book. "Story Design: A Handbook for Storytellers and Dream Merchants".
- Film Club
We love watching and talking about films. Please read our film club reviews and give us your comments. If you want to review a film yourself - feel free to do so. Just click here to write anything you want on our site. It will be moderated and, if approved, published!
Your engagement will be rewarded. Not only is there a feel-good factor from supporting someone who needs your help but, also, you can earn points for all the feedback you give. These points can be traded for goods and services.
You can also give points to other artists, which they can use for goods and services. It's basically e-commerce based on reciprocity. By engaging with us you earn points that you can give to the artists that need them (or, exchange them for something you want for yourself).
