A SOCIAL IMPACT COMPANY THAT PRODUCES, DISTRIBUTES & MARKETS
ASPIRATIONAL ENTERTAINMENT & MEDIA FOR GLOBAL AUDIENCES
ABOUT ASPIRATION STUDIOS
Created by experienced entertainment executives and accomplished business leaders, Aspiration Studios produces, distributes and markets "screen forward" entertainment and media that moves aspirational audiences from awareness to action.
The leadership team has two decades of leadership in reshaping the way content is made, distributed and marketed -- helping several hundred studio and indie movies, TV networks and shows, best-selling authors, break-out bands, and social impact initiatives achieve commercial and social success (see examples above).
In late 2016, the leadership decided to leverage all of the company's experience to partner with projects and people that see the potential for "triple bottom line" entertainment & media.
Through a "growth hack" model of unconventional strategies, unrivaled access to makers and movements, investment capital, and exceptional products and properties, Aspiration Studios is solving the challenges of a) the fragmenting of audiences, b) the cluttered marketplace, and c) the breakdown of traditional models.

MARKETING + PUBLICITY
There are 15 million Americans (and growing) who are looking for smart and soulful films and television. The Middle Space Audience is disinterested by over-hyped marketing and publicity that pushes advertising and awareness. We've developed a better way, born out of the innovation and testing on hundreds of campaigns.
ScreenBrew is a nationwide community of spiritually-minded women & men who enjoy smart films & TV and the conversations they provoke – preferably over a pint of craft beer or a cup of coffee.
The innovative crowd-sourcing platform brings the films of your choice to your local theater. Aspiration Investments is proud to partner with Tugg and its custom ticketing engine, ticket bundling, and thousands of event hosts and filmmakers.
Justice Film Festival
The Justice Film Festival inspires justice-seekers by presenting films of unexpected courage and redemption that are diverse in their issues and geography. The annual NYC event includes feature films, documentaries, and shorts from both well-known and emerging filmmakers that shine a light on justice.
Aspiration joined a talented cast & crew, along with highly-regarded producers, to executive produce the NY Times Critic's Pick and 2015 Sundance premiered film: LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT. Two other projects are in post-production, with other films expected over the coming years.
