O&A is pleased to announce that its client, Uri Singer, with his partner George Berry, has launched TaleFlick, which uses technology to solve one of film and TV’s most vexing problems — finding high-quality, original stories that can capture audiences.
Traditional methods for script hunting involve scouring through thousands of manuscripts or leaning on word of mouth, which are tedious, manual, and labor-intensive processes akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. TaleFlick uses intelligent algorithms to connect storytellers with film and television producers, enabling producers and buyers at studios to search a database of published film, TV, and media content to find exactly what they need within seconds.
“Uri is not only a world class film producer, he’s also one of the most forward thinking people in the entertainment industry in using technology to solve an age-old, labor-intensive problem in film and television,” said Dan Offner, Founder and Managing Partner of O&A, P.C., a law firm that specializes in venture and corporate law for technology and content. “We are thrilled to help Uri and George get their startup up and running. Their startup, which is at the intersection of technology and content, is precisely the kind of startup O&A was set up to represent.”
Singer, who is also Founder and CEO of Passage Pictures, is one of the entertainment industry’s most savvy producers, with a penchant for picking winners. His latest drama, “Marjorie Prime” starring Jon Hamm and Lois Smith, premiered to great acclaim at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
On the launch of TaleFlick, Singer notes, “Original content is the new gold rush. The big three are spending $50 billion dollars each year. There are so many stories out there that can never reach [audiences] or even be considered to become a film or TV series. I found that [being] dedicated to finding compelling stories that matter and bringing them to TV and the big screen is very rewarding.”
