Park Star Media is excited to announce the launch of our first A+ IP Accelerator Program , focused on selecting emerging animation talents. The program is designed to foster new original IP through the process of development and pitching.

In the accelerator program, selected creators will have the opportunity to develop their own original series and shows and receive exclusive mentoring, support, and resources. Innovative technologies and tools will be introduced to the creators and receive training on how to develop content and push the boundaries of storytelling with the power of AI and more. Authenticity will play a key role in this accelerator bringing new stories with the creator’s experiences and fascinations. 

Any project in the accelerator program will have the opportunity to be greenlit, which then will be created into a pilot with studios internationally. Park Star Media will help pitch, market, and empower the creator to bring their show into reality!  

In our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion, we are specifically looking for emerging talent with API backgrounds. Park Star Media is excited to empower underrepresented talent and encourage unique storytelling from different perspectives in the animation industry and beyond.

Core A+ Values

The foundation of our accelerator program is driven:

Authenticity: We value authenticity in all aspects of our program, from the selection of participants to the development of their projects. Our commitment to authenticity allows us to showcase the true diversity of voices and experiences within the animation industry, and empower creators to bring their most genuine stories to life.

AI: Technology enables creators to lightspeed their development process significantly. We aim to revolutionize the way we conceptualize and develop projects by utilizing AI tools and integration. 

Animation: We strongly believe in the power and impact of animation to tell unique stories and share diverse perspectives, while also encouraging creators to stay true to their individual voices and styles.

API backgrounds: We aim to uplift underrepresented stories and voices from different Asian Pacific Islander communities, with a focus on authenticity and showcasing genuine experiences.

Program Overview

Our IP Accelerator Program is committed to providing emerging talents with the resources they need to succeed in today's dynamic media landscape. We believe that setting up an IP for success is key, which is why our program is dedicated to:

🌟Comprehensive mentorship and guidance throughout the development process

🌟Exclusive training on AI and other cutting-edge technologies

🌟Unique opportunities for participants to pitch their projects to producers, studios, and investors

🌟Strategies for navigating the changing media landscape and setting up content strategy across various media platforms such as animation, comics and webtoons, books, toys, video games, digital stickers, character licensing, and more

🌟Special guests across media industries, which includes seasoned professionals and veterans in animation, directing, and more.

🌟Park Star Media will help pitch and bring creators' projects to market. If the right deal is found, then creators will have a role in the project and ownership share. If not, the IP will still belong to the creator!

Through our program, we are creating a platform for underrepresented voices to be heard, contributing to a more inclusive and representative animation industry.
