According to Deadline, director Ron Howard and Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer are launching a content accelerator program designed to transform good ideas into successes that will launch in Los Angeles and branch out to LatAm and other territories. 

If there's one thing the industry can agree with, is that good ideas are they key to success, and according to reports from Deadline, there's a new project underway that intends to transform good ideas into successes in narrative and documentary film, TV, VR and other platforms.

We're talking about Imagine Impact, a content accelerator program launched by director Ron Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer.

The project is born as a fully funded global initiative that proposes an eight-week creative boot camp to discover new voices and empower content creators and narrative storytellers from around the world.

It will start in Los Angeles this fall with the selection of 20 creators, and branch out to Latin America, United Kingdom, the Middle East and China. Executive Tyler Mitchell will oversee the project.

According to Grazer and Howard, their intent is to democratize a difficult entry process that hasn't really changed since the early days of the industry, and make it less intimidating and imposing.

"The demand for content is at unprecedented levels, but the barriers to entry are still great," Howard said. "We believe it is mission critical to find the most talented voices in the world and give them the knowledge, resources and access they need to succeed."

To do so, they have enlisted experts that will help the creators nurture the project and if the company doesn’t make a deal, the Creators are free offer it anywhere else. The Creators will be chosen from online applications, and those accepted will work with Shapers, a group of screenwriters and showrunners who’ll meet twice a week to hone those ideas into first draft scripts, bibles for franchises, or pilot scripts.

Those accepted to the program will be paid a weekly salary to meet their needs and make it possible for them to focus on delivering the best product imaginable in its most polished form.
