How does StorySpotters help content creators?

We know how resource and time-consuming it is to find, validate and pursue story opportunities, especially in scientific, social change and environmental fields, where search and due diligence efforts can be more involved. Our curated database of story-ready change agents helps make it easier to pinpoint qualified, compelling subjects for factual entertainment-based projects.


 

How does StorySpotters source talent?

Unlike traditional talent agencies or casting services, we cultivate long-term relationships with a global network of foundations, non-profits, think tanks and other thought leaders that afford unique access to leading figures in their fields. We help bring down search costs and fast-track efforts to find the right talent through additional matchmaking tools and targeted production support services.

After you submit basic information about yourself and/or your project here, our team will begin building a detailed profile - tailored to the information needs of media professionals - on your behalf. You will have an opportunity to approve your in-depth profile before any information is selectively shared with prospective storytellers when our beta launches.
