BIG VISION EMPTY WALLET IS A FILM & MEDIA INCUBATOR, founded in 2010 by Dani Faith Leonard & Alex Cirillo to support creators who want to get their projects made and seen.

"ONE COMPANY HOPING TO MOVE THE DIAL FORWARD IS BIG VISION EMPTY WALLET" - SLATE

VISIT SISTER COMPANY, BIG VISION CREATIVE

Through our incubator programs, we select talented and diverse creators to develop work with and nurture the TV and film projects that networks, platforms, and festivals are craving the most. These collaborations have led us to premieres at Sundance & SXSW, sales to major film distributors, streaming platforms, and TV networks, and releases in theaters world wide.  Programs include:

Kickstart Diversity Fellowship

  • WHO IT’S FOR: CREATORS DEVELOPING NEW PROJECTS IN TV AND FILM
  • WHERE IT HAPPENS: IN PERSON EVENTS ARE HELD IN NY BUT YOU CAN PARTICIPATE FROM ANYWHERE
  • SUBMISSION STATUS: CURRENTLY OPEN UNTIL JANUARY 31ST

Costa Rica Development Program

  • WHO IT’S FOR: CREATORS DEVELOPING NEW PROJECTS IN TV AND FILM
  • WHERE IT HAPPENS: PLAYA LANGOSTA, COSTA RICA (DON’T WORRY, WE’LL FLY YOU THERE!)
  • SUBMISSION STATUS: CURRENTLY OPEN UNTIL FEBRUARY 15TH

All of our programs feed into Big Vision Creative, our NY-based, but palm-tree-loving production company. Recent projects include SXSW-winning feature film THE LIGHT OF THE MOON, currently in theaters, dramatic series TAKE THE NET, which is now in development at Full Screen, and feature film LEZ BOMB, executive produced with Bobby Farrelly and currently awaiting a 2018 festival premiere.

Diversity is a main focus of our incubator and production company, and we require every project that we work on to have an inclusive team. Representation on screen matters to us too, as we’re sure it does to you! Unless you want to see a whole slate of projects about middle-aged white men tricking 20-year-olds into falling in love with them as they save the country/the Great Wall of China/the world from robots/the human race.

Through our programs, we have connected creators with companies we love working with including Big Beach, Bleecker Street Media, Braven Films, Comedy Central, Discovery, FilmRise, HBO, IFC, Lionsgate, Magnolia Pictures, Maven Pictures, TruTV, Uninterrupted, Washington Square Films, Zeitgeist Films and more.
