Should the following Tier 4: up to $60,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Content Creator category be approved?
We are a team of award-winning storytellers, with more than 20 years of experience, and deeply passionate about DCL.
Our goal is to create the first AUDIOVISUAL HUB in DCL.
We want to build a place where content creators and independent production companies will meet to share ideas and experiences about how to tell stories in the metaverse.
We aim to develop a strong community of storytellers that will work together to create the navite web3 cinema format.
These films will not just be shot at DCL, but will be premiered at the STUDIOLAND…
We also want to add a podcast studio, bringing already established podcasts to record their shows in DCL , as well as new talents looking forward to sharing their stories.
Anyone with a good story to tell, will be welcomed at the STUDIOLAND.
In both cases the intention is to invite the audiences to participate in the recordings of the podcast and the premiers of the films, and through this expand the DCL community.
We are WOW LAND, a group of content creators that got together in 2002, that are web3 enthusiasts and want to create the first audiovisual hub inside DCL.
Regarding films and series, through DOC LAND ( www.doclandfilms.com ) we don’t only have the recognition of the industry as independent producers, but also of the audiences and festivals. From Grammys, to the Oscars to the first prize at the Montreal Film Festival.
Dying to Tell (2018) - MORIR PARA CONTAR – Doc Land
Born in Syria (2017) - NACIDO EN SIRIA – Doc Land
We also create podcasts through POD LAND ( www.podland.com ). Two of our most successful shows are related to crypto/web3 and gaming.
¿Por qué no te habré hecho caso? (“I should’ve listened to you”)
Crypto podcast hosted by Santiago Siri - YCombinator founder and Proof of Humanity creator ¿Por qué no te habré hecho caso? - Podland
Videojuegos, entiende a tu hijo (Gaming, understanding your kids)
Gaming podcast hosted by Eric Murillo - KPI Gaming founder and Ex Twitch director for Spain
This background gives us the conviction that we have the network and the skills to make the STORYLAND community thrive.
Our goals will be:
Provide know-how and share ideas with creators, newcomers and existing members of DCL.
Create native content and reproduce exogenous content.
Invite the audiences to participate.
Produce the first native DCL film, adapting the concept of cinema to the reality of DCL users.
Live recording of podcasts.
