Entertainment startup revolutionizes how writers promote and get their stories sold

AUSTIN, Texas, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In Entertainment content is king. But getting content into the hands of producers and decision-makers is no easy feat, even for a best-selling author. Storyrocket.com is a result of a need in the Entertainment Business to provide writers the opportunity to promote, network and ultimately get their stories optioned. The site allows members to fully detail their written works with loglines, synopses, posters, banners, cast-wish-lists, and videos like, "elevator pitches" and trailers. Storyrocket has a free membership model with revenue sources derived from expanded project postings.

"The Entertainment World is a closed industry and chances are if you don't know anyone on the inside or have a big star attached to your project, your work won't be seen, no matter how amazing it is. We estimate that there are hundreds of thousands of writers globally and millions of books and screenplays that are desperate to get into the right hands, but have nowhere to go. We recognize the challenges the Entertainment Business has and Storyrocket intends to change this," says co-founder Ron Karasz.

On first sight, the Marketplace seems to service writers, but it's doing a great service to producers as well. On the flip side, producers are always looking for a great story and finding compelling content is a challenge. Storyrocket's robust search engine, does just that. Whether you're searching for a book, script or treatment, producers can easily filter by genre, gender, location, era, etc. and can communicate directly with the content owner or agent. Production companies spend a considerable amount of time and money vetting scripts that come from a multitude of sources. There is no one place that consolidates and organizes content easily and visually, like Storyrocket, so that finding the next big hit is just a few clicks away. Storyrocket's goal is to have the largest collection of content worldwide that is easily searchable from anywhere, 24/7.

"Today, not only the traditional networks and studios are in competition for great content, but companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are producing great original movies, shows and series as well. This trend will continue to grow as new outlets emerge, creating the need for more and more content. Storyrocket will be here to meet that demand," says Emmy-winning producer and co-founder Ana Benitez.

Understanding that great content transcend borders and is adaptable to multiple markets, Storyrocket will facilitate this cross-promotion by expanding the site to multiple languages. Launching in English, it plans to be available in Spanish and French by the end of 2017. Opening the possibilities to huge production markets in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Spain, France and Canada among many other countries. The goal is to have the the site available "in-language" for the top 20 film and TV producing countries of the World.

Visit Storyrocket's booth at SXSW Startup Village on Sunday, March 12 to learn more and celebrate its launch.
