MISSION STATEMENT

In january 2019, forbes published an article on the latinx COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES.

latinx HAS BECOME SHORTHAND IN YOUNGER LATIN CIRCLES, acknowledging latino & latina people from all backgrounds, however, there is an argument against the term.

WHILE WE ACCEPT BOTH TERMS, WE WILL REFER TO OURSELVES AS LATIN THROUGHOUT THIS TO KEEP IN PERSPECTIVE — THE YOUNG GENERATION THAT IS GROWING OUT OF THE CURRENT LATINX MOVEMENT IS GENERATION Z.

A RECENT CLARITAS REPORT CITED IN THE ARTICLE STATED THE U.S. CONSISTS OF 131 MILLION MULTICULTURAL AMERICANS (37.5-PERCENT OF THE U.S. POPULATION; LATIN PEOPLE THE LARGEST SEGMENT AT 19.6-PERCENT). THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS THAT AT AN ESTIMATED 58.9 MILLION LATINS CURRENTLY IN THE U.S., EXPECTED TO REACH 72 MILLION BY 2030.

IT’S THE YOUNGEST GROUP IN AMERICA: AVERAGE AGE 28 (21-PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE MILLENNIAL POPULATION ACCORDING TO THE LA TIMES). HALF THE AMERICAN MILLENNIAL POPULATION WILL BE MULTICULTURAL BY 2024.

LATINS COMPRISE 32-PERCENT OF ALL MOVIE TICKET BUYERS. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY NOTED IT IS AN AUDIENCE TRADITIONALLY ASSOCIATED WITH HORROR AND FAMILY MOVIES, BUT NOW ATTEND ALL GENRES.

REPRESENTATION IS SO BAD FOR LATINS IN THE U.S. THEY ONLY GET 4.2-PERCENT OF SPEAKING ROLES IN MOVIES, AND MANY ARE TOLD THROUGH THE WHITE EXPERIENCE. ACCORDING TO A STUDY AT USC. WHITE CHARACTERS, BY CONTRAST, ACCOUNTED FOR 76.3-PERCENT OF SPEAKING ROLES, BLACKS 10.8-PERCENT, 5-PERCENT ASIAN, 3-PERCENT OTHER. NEEDLESS TO SAY REPRESENTATION IS A PRESSING ISSUE FOR ALL MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES ON FILM.

THIS IS A MULTIMEDIA EXPLORATION OF WHAT IS POSSIBLE IN FOLLOWING THE FOOTSTEPS OF ACTOR, AND ONE OF HOLLYWOOD’S MOST POWERFUL YOUNG TALENTS, MICHAEL B. JORDAN.

ON JORDAN’S COMMITMENT TO MAKE HIS FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY ONE OF THE PROMINENT FIRST INCLUSION RIDER COMPANIES — AN INCLUSION RIDER IS A CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT TO HAVE CERTAIN LEVELS OF DIVERSITY IN FRONT OF AND BEHIND THE CAMERA — HE WROTE ON INSTAGRAM AT THE TIME OF ITS 2018 FOUNDING:

IN SUPPORT OF THE WOMEN AND MEN WHO ARE LEADING THIS FIGHT, I WILL BE ADOPTING THE INCLUSION RIDER FOR ALL PROJECTS PRODUCED BY MY COMPANY OUTLIER SOCIETY. I’VE BEEN PRIVILEGED TO WORK WITH POWERFUL WOMAN & PERSONS OF COLOR THROUGHOUT MY CAREER & IT’S OUTLIER’S MISSION TO CONTINUE TO CREATE FOR TALENTED INDIVIDUALS GOING FORWARD.
— https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2018/03/michael-b-jordan-inclusion-rider?verso=true

THIS IS A CONTENT PORTFOLIO FULLY ENGAGING AN AUDIENCE THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT SOCIOECONOMIC POWER WILLING TO SPEND AND SUPPORT CONTENT AND PRODUCTS REFLECTING THEIR CULTURAL NUANCE AND VALUE. 90-PERCENT STREAM VIDEO ON THEIR SMART PHONES OR TABLET, 10-PERCENT MORE THAN NON-LATINS; AND IT’S NOT JUST CONTENT SHARING, IT’S DIGITAL COMMUNITIES OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

LATINS AGREE DIGITAL PLATFORMS ARE KEY TO STAYING CONNECTED TO THEIR CULTURE. THUS THEIR YOUTH MEANS A LASTING MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL RELATIONSHIP FOR LATINS AND THOSE CREATORS SERVING THEM AS THEIR HOUSEHOLD INCOME OUTPACES NON-LATINS BY 20.7-PERCENT IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS DUE TO INCREASED EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT RATES. AN EXPECTANT TREND.

BY LINKING DIGITAL CONTENT AND A ROBUST MARKET PORTFOLIO FOR THE YOUNG LATIN DEMOGRAPHIC TO EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL CONTRIBUTION, IT IS A SELF-SUSTAINING, INDEPENDENT, POSITIVE VALUE FOR CREATORS PROVIDING BRAND-LOYAL CONSUMERS WITH MORE BUYING POWER THAN THEIR COUNTERPARTS A MIRROR TO THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES VIA TASTEMAKER STORIES ACROSS MEDIUMS.

THE CONCLUSION?

INVESTING IN LATIN FILM AND CONTENT IN THE UNITED STATES FOR CHICANO, LATINX, LATIN, LGBQT, HISPANIC, — HOWEVER THEY IDENTIFY —- MILLENNIALS AND WITH VAST INTERNATIONAL, BILINGUAL APPEAL, PAVES THE WAY TO MAKE THE UNDERSERVED AUDIENCE STAUNCH SUPPORTERS OF A CONSCIOUSNESS AND COMMUNITY ENRICHING BRAND, WITH THEIR PURCHASING DECISIONS FOR THE REST OF THE CENTURY AND BEYOND.

THE MOTION PICTURE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA RANKS LATINS AS THE HIGHEST GOING FILM AUDIENCE: 4.5 TIMES PER YEAR.

IN 2017, LATINS SUPPORTED “WONDER WOMAN” AND “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” MORE THAN ALL OTHER FILMS, PROVING AN ABILITY TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUAL FILMS TO SUCH A DEGREE THEY ACCOUNT FOR A QUARTER OF THE FILM’S ENTIRE MOVIE AUDIENCE; A QUARTER OF ALL LATINS ARE SELF-DESCRIBED “FREQUENT MOVIE GOERS.”

VETERAN FILM PRODUCER MOCTESUMA ESPARZA (SELENA, GETTSYBURG) WENT STRAIGHT TO THE DEMAND WITH A $20 INVESTMENT IN BUILDING A THEATER IN CALIFORNIA’S CENTRAL VALLEY WHERE THERE WAS NO THEATER IN 2003. HE’S SINCE EXPANDED TO BAKERSFIELD, PITTSBURG, FRESNO, SALINAS AND DELANO. HE PLANS TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THE PROBLEM IS U.S. DISTRIBUTORS DON’T KNOW HOW TO MARKET FILMS THAT ARE IN SPANISH AND OR/BI-CULTURAL WITHOUT PIGEONHOLING THEM AS FOREIGN FILMS OR AS HEAVY-HANDED IDENTITY FILMS.

THE FORMATION OF A LATIN HOLLYWOOD STUDIO, PANTELION, EST. 2010 IN A JOINT VENTURE BY LION’S GATE AND TELEVISA IS ONE CURRENT MARKET EXAMPLE.NBCU TELEMUNDO ENTERPRISES ANOTHER, AND MODERN FAMILY TV STAR SOFIA VERGARA’S DIGITAL MEDIA LATIN STORYTELLING COMPANY RAZE ARE ALSO ATTEMPTING TO MAKE IN-ROADS INTO SUCH AUDIENCE-FRIENDLY PRODUCTIONS.

THANKS FOR READING. WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION AND POSSIBLE FUTURE INVESTMENT.

WAIT.

WHO IS WE?

GOOD QUESTION!

We is Danny Acosta, a San Francisco Mission district born-and-bred writer of Sinaloa, Mexico. He co-wrote the feature film Green Fever (coming soon, poster below).

51590777_2023806741256675_5907008520942780416_o.jpg

Acosta has written for an array of national publications (USA TODAY, FOX, SPORTS, VICE, MAXIM) for over a decade, produced viral videos and conducted interviews seen by millions on YouTube (AOL/BLEACHER REPORT), hosted national radio shows (SIRIUSXM) and contributed to them for eight years, and has gone on to publish his photography with his writing, all as an expert in combat sports and culture, in addition to various photo projects. Acosta continues to create across media, live for the arts, and Latin/x culture.

THAT IS…WITH YOUR HELP.

THE REASON THIS USED “WE” IN THE MISSION STATEMENT IS BECAUSE IT’S ONLY A TEAM OF CREATORS WITH EXPERTISE AND PURPOSE, AND IN THE RIGHT CONTEXT, RAW TALENT, THAT COULD PULL OFF THE AMBITIOUS TWO-PRONGED FILM PRODUCTION STRATEGY BEHIND THE SCENES WITH CONSUMER-FACING EQUAL PUBLICATIONS AND INTEGRATED PRODUCTS.

AND IN THE CURRENT CULTURAL MOMENT, WHICH WON’T BE GOING ANYWHERE, WE BELIEVE IT IS GOING TO TAKE INVESTING IN THE INCLUSION RIDER STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE RELEVANT AND SUSTAINED SUCCESS IN TODAY’S AND FUTURE MARKETS.

DON’T JUST TAKE DANNY ACOSTA’S WORD FOR IT. TOP VC FIRM KAPOR CAPITAL, HAS MADE IT THEIR MISSION TOO. HERE’S WHAT THEIR WEBSITE SAYS…

Our Mission

At Kapor Capital we believe in the power of transformative ideas and diverse teams. We are an Oakland-based fund that understands that startup companies have the ability to transform entire industries and to address urgent social needs as they do so.

We believe that startups can leverage information technology to solve real world problems and tangibly improve the lives of millions through innovations in the fields of education, finance, health, work, justice and more.

Key to this philosophy is our deep commitment to diversity. Our entrepreneurs come from all walks of life. We believe that the lived experience of founding teams from under-represented backgrounds provide a competitive edge. Their experiences inform the questions they ask and the problems they identify that give rise to profitable, tech-driven solutions.

In our current portfolio:

  • 60 out of 102 investments (59%) have a founder who identifies as a woman and/or an underrepresented person of color

  • 38% of our first-time investments have a  founder who identifies as a woman

  • 34% of our first-time investments have a founder of a racially underrepresented background

  • 25% of our first-time investments have a founder from an Asian group. Of these two are underrepresented

OKAY, THANKS FOR THE INFO KAPOR CAPITAL.

NOW WE’VE COME TO THE FINISH LINE.

AT WORST, YOU’RE INVESTING IN COMPETENT, PROFESSIONAL BLOGS WITH SERIOUS GROWTH POSSIBILITY POWERED BY A BLOGGER THAT IN THE LAST TWO YEARS CO-WROTE A PRODUCED FEATURE FILM AND JUST GOT SEEDED TO DIRECT HIS FIRST FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY, WHILE DOING EVERYTHING ELSE THAT’S LISTED ABOVE.

AT BEST YOU’RE SEEDING A GAME CHANGING WAY INTERNET CULTURE AND EXISTING COMMUNITIES CHOOSE TO COOPERATE AND ADVOCATE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, AND PARTICIPATE IN THE FUN OF FILM, SPORTS, ENTERTAINMENT, AND MORE.
