Buckle up 🚀

Welcome to: THE DISCO BALL Experience

THE DISCO BALL is a first-of-its-kind multimedia narrative from the mind of accomplished Hollywood Showrunner Kyle Killen (Halo, Awake, Lone Star) and illustrated by celebrated LA-based pop- artists shelby and sandy (@shelbyandsandy on Instagram).

They built the foundation of a narrative universe, and we now invite you into the creative process to expand this story into an infinitely evolving franchise through our “Co/Create” initiative. Co/Creates will span artistic mediums, from creative writing to illustrating, animating to acting. Creatives from around the world can create original storylines, animate scenes, voice characters, compose music, and more.

There are limitless opportunities for you to co-create THE DISCO BALL right now. View all open Co/Creates or submit an original idea at Story.co/create.

Co/Create participants will see their work integrated into the core narrative of THE DISCO BALL and be rewarded with upfront compensation as well as a share of future profits of the underlying IP through StoryCo’s “Profit Points” initiative. Profit Points represent a share of the profit generated by the underlying story IP and will be awarded to anyone who meaningfully contributes to and engages with THE DISCO BALL.

At StoryCo, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of amazing stories, and earn a fair share of the financial upside for their work.

We created THE DISCO BALL to showcase the potential of the StoryCo platform and to prove that stories are better when we collaborate.
