Big Vision Empty Wallet is an inclusion-focused incubator that develops and amplifies unique voices in film & TV.

Founded in 2010 by producers and industry leaders Dani Faith Leonard & Alex Cirillo, Big Vision Empty Wallet is an inclusion-focused incubator with a proven model and commitment to diverse, larger-than-life, entertaining content. We amplify unique voices in film & TV and get projects made and seen. The Big Vision team also operates a production company called Big Vision Creative, which produces many of the films and series that are greenlit through the incubator. Founded in 2010 by Dani Faith Leonard and Alex Cirillo, the company and incubator are NYC-based, but our work has taken our team across the United States, Asia and Central America.

Recent projects include feature films RED, WHITE, & WASTED (Tribeca 2019), THE LIGHT OF THE MOON (2017), LEZ BOMB (2018), and COAST (post-production). In addition to film and TV, we have produced over 300 interactive events and live productions. We have led conversations about audience building, distribution, pitching and creative collaboration at the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW Film Festival, Savannah Film Festival, aTVfest, SeriesFest, iTVFest, Newfest, First Time Fest, and the Downtown Las Vegas Project. LinkedIn recently featured us in a digital series about inclusion in the film industry, and we have previously been featured by A&E Network and in The Washington Post, IndieWire, OUT Magazine, Slate, SXSW Magazine and more.

Collaborations through our incubator have led us to premieres at Sundance & SXSW, sales to major film distributors, streaming platforms, and TV networks, and releases in theaters world wide
