Who We Are

The Giant Leap Development Accelerator Program is a content creation program designed to fine-tune screenplays and teleplays into producible projects in twelve weeks.

Development Acceleration

We invest, refine and fully package seven to ten projects over an intensive three-month biannual program with the involvement and support of industry veterans. The goal is to create an efficient development and packaging process that expedites the supply of fully developed IPs with the kind of quality that will stand out to buyers who are faced with subpar options.

Disruption

Through our innovative development model, Giant Leap Media supplies the entertainment industry with vital intellectual property (IP) by empowering undiscovered APA visionaries. We will operate as an accelerator/incubator for new, APA creative voices in Hollywood; an under represented group with diverse backgrounds and unique points of view who have the potential to influence the national discourse.
