Wildseed Studios has announced a new partnership with DRG, a British media distributor which serves as part of the Nice Entertainment Group.
The BAFTA-winning studio is also now accepting submissions for new media content aimed at millennials.
DRG will provide extra funding for Wildseed and also take over distribution of its content. Wildseed states that DRG’s “expertise and extensive market knowledge” will allow them to become “fully connected with the international content industry”.
DRG’s managing director, Richard Halliwell, said that he thinks Wildseed will help his company “look at different ways of working in our changing world”. He also referred to the partnership as “ripping up the ‘distributor rulebook’” as Wildseed have “no ‘mainstream’ experience and no access to market… [but] just need some seed investment to gain momentum.”
Wildseed’s Miles Bullough expressed satisfaction with the partnership, claiming that it is “effectively allowing us to launch phase two of our business, and to reload the Wildseed incubator”.
