Empowering the next generation of storytellers.

Creator+ is partnering with diverse, digital-native storytellers to disrupt the status quo of film production. It’s not just movie stars with thousands of fans anymore; content creators are gaining millions of followers who want more than just a peak into their lives.

Creator+ gives content creators the opportunity to bring their artistic vision to life, while granting fans access to exclusive content and the chance to connect on a deeper level. In everything they do, creators come first.

”a small studio is more than a design agency—it’s a small community of brilliant and empathetic creators, rallying around your vision.”

Tricia Choi

Head of Product at Creator+

More than a streaming platform.

The Creator+ app is home to layers of content and immersive experiences that bring fans closer to their favorite creators. Every feature was built specifically to enhance the movie-watching experience. Starting with the core functionality, we built a Discover page as well as individual film pages for users to learn more about the creators who brought the stories to life. We then worked closely with the Creator+ Product Team to conceptualize and design custom features for each original movie.

For their premiere film, Diamond in the Rough, we’re able to give fans direct access to Griffin Johnson through the video reactions feature. Users are able to watch the movie while Griffin responds to his performance (and maybe shares some insider info) in real time.

You're invited!

You know that feeling of leaving the theater with your friends and immediately diving into everyone’s thoughts on the movie? We helped Creator+ imagine a digital solution for that feeling, the Afterparty! Once viewers finish the film, they can access the Afterparty, an area full of extra features and additional content. Share your thoughts by submitting a video review or taking a poll, and hear directly from the creators with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

We utilized the website as an opportunity to double down on Creator+’s mission: give digital-native storytellers the opportunity to break free of the constraints they face when creating for social platforms. From the large scale key art to the animated marquees, the site nods to iconic elements of the in-person movie experience we all know and love. Directly from the home page, users can get early access to new releases, or sign up for notifications to stay in-the-know.

We are proud to support Creator+ as they continue to differentiate themselves from other production studios and streaming platforms by splitting revenue directly with the creators, as well as sharing intellectual property ownership. Creator+ is also supporting the next generation of BIPOC filmmakers and industry leaders with their Flip the Script Short Film Fund. Their inaugural class will all create short films with Creator+, and one will have the opportunity to make a feature film.

Head to creatorplus.com to stream their brand new film, Diamond in the Rough, starring Griffin Johnson and Samantha Boscarino!
