Experience the BSN: The Story Club
Live on Zoom - Thursday, May 6th at 11:00AM PST
The Story Club provides a chance for BSN members to share story concepts and themes that could ultimately be supported, funded or sponsored by a brand. Participants provide feedback and ideas that may help hone the story, suggest the best format, prospective talent, production, distribution strategy, and more for participating members.
This week we want to invite you to join! You're invited to sit in on The Story Club and get a feel for the kinds of conversations happening in the BSN. Check out several of the stories we have in store for this week's gathering, register, and be sure to tune in this Thursday, May 6th, at 11am PST:
THE ROAD TO VICTORY - THE RED BALL EXPRESS
Format: Narrative feature film, true story, based on existing IP
Brian Bowen | VP, Head of Production & Executive Producer, PACE
The untold true story of the Red Ball Express, the WWII supply chain in Europe, operated solely by African American soldiers. Not allowed to fight in traditional battle next to their Caucasian counterparts - these unsung and unknown heroes of WWII were a critical component that allowed the allies to secure victory over Germany. For the lucky member of the Red Ball Express that lived to return home - the war continued, as these heroes battled systemic racism and anonymity for the remainder of their lives.
