SHORT FORM VIDEO IS NOW.

In a rapidly evolving mobile revolution, our attention spans are shortening as the amount of content we consume multiplies. In order to stand out in a sea of mindless content, we help you activate your Mindstream™. With our creative team, sponsors, and distribution networks your content will sit on it's rightful thrown as king of the digital age, making you the star.

We aspire to be a global messenger of innovation and passion where top digital stars, channels and remarkable content live and breathe. Engagement can't be automated – connection cannot be consumed, the world's best brands aren't built on AdWords – it's a personal world, and we help you speak directly with your fans. 

 

 AS SEEN ON

 

 

 

     

100% of funds raised will go to building our Mindstream Studio, located in Irvine California. 

We have a remarkable space ready for build-out, and need your help to raise the funds to make it happen. It's not a matter of "IF" we will do it, but rather "WHEN" we will do it. All funds raised will go to building a 5-Set Studio, Computer Lab, and Staging areas for YouTube Creators to film, edit, and produce content for their Online Channels. Check out the studio concepts we have below for even MORE inspiration!

Love to Cook?

We're obsessed with flavor - buttery, decadent, sweet and sour. Everything about food and the way it's made, presented and enjoyed – preferably with a fine glass of wine. Help us create a space where Creators can take their passion from the kitchen to the studio and share their culinary inspirations with the world. Let's spread your recipes like wildfire across all social platforms. We love food that'll make you want to roll your eyes back and say "Wow this is good! – I need another bite."

You're only limited to your imagination.

Through the magic of video effects and technology, you can superimpose your subjects onto virtual backgrounds, place them over animated digital backdrops or transport them to a whole new world. With our green screen set, it's simple to superimpose anything or anyone into any shot. You can transport yourself to mars, appear in your favorite movie, or make a presentation along with all the relevant information. 

Beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. 

Go on a recent shopping spree? Haul it! Show off your outfit of the day and why not upload a makeup tutorial while you're at it? Collaborate with influencers who share your common interests, access the tools to help you grow your audience. Up your monetization with our simple approach to beauty and lifestyle for the true fashionista within. It's all the about the glam!

Embrace your inner nerd.

We want to know what the latest iOS and Android features will be and why you need the latest processor. We want robots that can replace repetitious human activity and we live for the pre-order list. It's Kickstarted whizbams, but it's not all about the bits and pieces – we want to make the future... today. We have an endless supply of the latest gadgets with our deep crowdfunding relationships begging for reviews and deep dives. 

We're all about self-expression.

From politics to pop culture, touring through the mountains or hanging out with your friends - bring everyday people on your life's journey. Share your opinions and experiences with the world. Capture the stories and preserve the moment - use video as the medium. You do the talking, we bring the audience. 

All the Tools in One Studio.

With filming for YouTube Creators, you need a place for all the behind-the-scenes magic. Our vision at Mindstream Studio is to have everything a Creator needs in one place. We plan on having the following amenities in house when the full build out takes place:

 What do we mean when we say Mindstream has built the dream-team? It means we remain forever ambitious, inventive enough to conceive the most entertaining content and crazy enough to actually do it.

In December of 2009, Mindstream, LLC, was founded in the US with the intention of developing a global, social communication platform. Mindstream was granted its initial trademark in early 2010 for online social networking services. Over the past 7 years, Mindstream has now evolved into Mindstream Studio, the place to be for the management and production of short-form video.

 

 

  

Risks and challenges

We have already started construction on the space, so we are committed to use the funds as soon as they come in (credit cards are charged at the end of the campaign, ONLY IF WE REACH OUR GOAL). We feel that this number is enough to account for the major things we need in order to open the space for production.

As any project will have surprises, we have accounted for as many potential issues as we can foresee. One possible outcome is that rewards may be postponed if it takes longer than we anticipate to launch the studio. However, we will communicate to the backers about any hold-ups in our reward process.
