Creating
An Inclusive Hollywood

Studios rely on big names on screen or behind the camera, but fail to see the value of new writers and allocating the proper budget to uplift these stories, despite the popularity of the cast. 

 

The importance of authentic Asian Pacific representation in Hollywood is one that cannot be overlooked. 

 

 

The problem: Writers aren’t given the proper attention or encouragement to write at a professional level, thus have a significantly harder time finding a manager and getting studios to greenlight new stories. 

 

Fewer stories means fewer opportunities to cast actors and fewer productions overall, leading to continued stereotyped content.

 

Our solution: Free and low cost education for artists breaking into the industry and corporate conversations to dismantle stereotypes and misconceptions in order to build a more inclusive industry. 

82%

of Asian Americans subscribe to at least one streaming service as compared to 72% of the total population. (Nielson, 2020)

46Mil+

Asian population in U.S. Nearly doubled between 2000 and 2019; projected to surpass 46 million by 2060. 

This Asian American audience will exponentially increase. thus the market audience and quality of Asian American stories will need to be more relevant and relatable. (Pew Research Center, 2021)

Out of ~1500 Asian applicants,
only 10 (<1%)
make it into diversity programs.

Out of every 10 writers (at most),  who make it into a diversity programs, maybe 1-5 get staffed.

Most won’t have manager.

Of those 5, most will write for stories not about Asian Americans because there aren’t enough Asian American series in production.

What people say

Masami’s notes were very professional... My biggest takeaway from your notes was how polished you they were about the structure of the script and not just the structure of story, or of the creative elements, but the literal structure of how you write a script. Your notes gave me a new level of confidence to share the script with other industry professionals.
KEITH WATABAYASHI
This is helpful. I've shown the script to a few different people … but I think this is the first time that anyone's really taken a critical look at it and was like, ‘OK, if I'm going to actually make this into a thing’, these are the things that I would be looking for’. And all the critiques that you've given make sense and knowing at least that I have good set up and and semi-solid characters, that makes my short story writing even better.
