SuperBloom House, founded by Briony McCarthy and Tom Dunlap, intends to create a single point of entry for deals that usually require multiple agencies and negotiators – especially at a time with performers and writers hope to diversify income streams during the ongoing Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Services will include digital docs, screenwriting, IP development, branded long and short-form films, reality TV and merchandising.
“By bringing brand opportunities into a multi-skilled community of creators, we give our members access to all parts of the creative process, not just one. We are yet to see a company who can bring together marketing, advertising, entertainment and production talent together at scale, all under one roof, until now,” said Mitch Eisner, head of the SuperBloom Creative Collective.
The company aims to have 500 members in the Creative Collective by the end of 2023. Below find the full inaugural class.
