BRANDS

 

Indigenous Media loves to push the envelope of storytelling and is experienced in creating innovative content for brands.

 

Custom Series: Moms with Strollers

WIGS created the original, unscripted series Moms with Strollers for J&J to distribute across their digital channels. The 6 episodes feature celebrity mothers and their children on blind playdates, and focus on a diverse group of parents connecting across the universal themes of raising children.

  

  Custom Commercial: Evolution

After finding success running pre-roll advertising before WIGS series, Dove approached WIGS to produce custom content for the WIGS audience vs. the general Dove spots that had been running. The new WIGS-produced spots integrate historical footage from Dove ads with images of the women of WIGS.

Custom Companion Series: Gone

FOX asked Indigenous to come up with a concept for an original, scripted digital series that could run concurrently with the release of their limited series Wayward Pines. Featuring Microsoft product integration, Gone unfolds over 10x 2 min episodes, and adds a whole new chapter to the mythology of the series.

ABOUT

 

Indigenous Media is a new kind of studio. Dedicated to telling a wide range of stories, across a wide range of formats. Simply, we believe in a value of premium content, and the power of story to connect with global audiences on any platform.

Jon Avnet, and Rodrigo Garcia have a long history of producing, writing, and directing premium content for film and television. In 2011, they partnered on an artistic experiment that ultimately would go on to become the channel, WIGS. Uniquely concentrated on female-focused, filmmaker-driven series, WIGS was successful in connecting with global audiences.

Indigenous Media is the natural continuation.  Uniquely positioned between new and established, enabling next-level, tailored storytelling native to the respective medium.
