Wildseed Studios is a next-generation media company which enables emerging talent to create fantastic new entertainment IPs’s by investing directly into the development and production of their ideas. Wildseed is investing 50 x £10k into new ideas over the next three years, with two successive rounds of increasing funding available for the ideas which show potential to become the break out hit we seek.
Wildseed looks in three categories – Kids 6-11, animated and live action adult comedy, and genre fiction. We produce digital original series and microbuster movies – blockbuster movies on a microbudget, and are in production on a 52x11 animated comedy series for Disney Worldwide and Teletoon Canada, as well as rolling out an digital animation incubator format internationally, with Canada being the first territory to go live in a partnership with the Shaw Rocket Fund.
All of Wildseed’s series commissions premiere on one of two proprietary OTT entertainment channels Wildseed Comedy and Wildseed SciFi, while our movies generally go into VoD distribution networks.
Prior to founding Wildseed with his business partner Miles Bullough, Jesse ran his own creative solutions company Connective Media, and prior to that he held a range of senior editorial positions at the BBC, culminating in three years as Head of Co-Production and Acquisition for BBC Childrens.
