With streaming, gaming, and podcasting, more content is being created in the $2T/year media and entertainment business than ever before. But talent discovery hasn't changed for decades. Execs still search for writers, producers, directors, editors, and others through personal relationships and phone calls, and they rarely get out their cliques. At the same time, the ability to efficiently discover new and diverse voices has never been more needed as companies race to create IP to win global audiences. Enter HUSSLUP—we are a searchable network that connects above and below the line creative talent to each other and to the media and entertainment companies that need them to democratize and diversify access to the industry. For the first time, talent can create and control their own profile with all of their professional information, including credits they can edit, a bio, vouches from colleagues, and creative samples. And execs can run a robust professional search of a large aggregated talent pool with specific criteria, including diversity filters, and vet the candidates instantly. We are transforming Hollywood's old clique with one click.
