We are proud to announce that we've selected STRAIGHT TRIPPIN', a unique and modern travel series from two producers that we're truly excited to support.

STRAIGHT TRIPPIN' is a travel series that follows three friends, all looking to hit the "pause" button on life to venture into the wilderness. As they unplug from their day jobs, social media, and the perils of “adulting," they are forced to confront their personal hangups. Against the backdrop of the most gorgeous landscapes in the country, they form a bond that will prepare them for whatever the natural world throws their way.

About the Program

During the retreat, Big Vision Empty Wallet and the participating team will work together to develop an audience building strategy, marketing and distribution strategy, and all business materials necessary to pursue financing, sponsorships and partnerships and get the chosen project made and seen.  

Once the project has been selected, we'll attach appropriate mentors to help guide the project forward.

What We Look For:

Your submission materials should be a reflection of you, both as an artist and as a person. We’re taking a trip with you to a tropical location and we want to know who we're supporting!  More than anything else, your submission should reflect the unique, creative, badass team that you are.


 

FAQ's

What do I receive and what does BVEW ask for in return?

The Creator (YOU!) retain all the rights to the concept and script, if there is one.  Big Vision will provide two team members (you decide the team members that go) with a five day business retreat in Playa Langosta, Costa Rica. We will fully pay for 2 round trip flights from NYC, transportation from the airport in Costa Rica, as well as all lodging at a private villa in Playa Langosta.

At the retreat Big Vision Creative (our production company) will work together with The Creators to create:

  • An audience building and marketing strategy for the project.
  • A distribution strategy for the project, utilizing BVC’s existing network and relationships.
  • A sponsorships and partnerships strategy for The Project. BVC will share brand sponsor connections and consult on brand sponsorship materials. BVC will consult with The Creators on sponsorship outreach strategies and ways of working with sponsors.
  • All decks and materials to support the above strategies.

In return, Big Vision Creative will be officially co-producing your project.

Due to the varying scopes of the projects we are accepting, all final fees, net profit participation, and sales commissions will be defined in an agreement that will be negotiated at a later date, according to industry standards.
