Why We Started This Company
The entertainment industry has been reluctant to embrace the power of the internet to discover talent, only recently moving in that direction. Our goal is to extend the reach of Hollywood using the power of the internet to reach a global screenwriting market, combined with a crowdsourced system to help identify projects and writers who are a cut above. As the creator of Final Draft, Talentville CEO Ben Cahan has been involved in the screenwriting industry for almost 25 years.
What Sets Us Apart
Attracting Hollywood insiders is the key to increasing membership, growing our script library and garnering media attention. In turn, identifying projects and writers with potential for success will attract more Industry professionals. That is the path to success, with each side feeding the other. Ultimately having success stories will be the eventual benchmark of success, optioning and developing screenplays and getting movies and television shows bought and produced by the studios.
Our Keys To Success
Talentville is designed to address two audiences that may seem to be at odds: aspiring writers and Hollywood executives. Executives want to read only the best, and writers want a system that let's the most promising projects rise to the top. Bringing those to audiences together on neutral ground is the core of Talentville...a fair system for writers to see where they stand and a smart system that lets executives know the projects they read have been successfully vetted.
