Last year's inaugural cycle selected eight projects out of nearly 500 applications, choosing to develop projects such as a digital comedy brand with viral web content ("Auralnauts"), a 3D transmedia children’s film and tablet video game ("MAX & CHARLIE"), and a feature film that will incorporate an event tour, live music, shareable GIFs and experimental media ("LIKE ME"). This year, Dogfish Accelerator is expanding their horizons, "taking a much more radical approach to content, extending the applicant pool to all types of media – from narrative and documentary feature films, to shorts, multimedia, television series, webisodes, animation, graphic novels, comic books, video games, music videos, visual art, design and social media applications like Vine, Instagram, and Tumblr."
"Content is content, no matter what form it takes," said James Belfer, CEO of Dogfish, in a statement."We're looking for the next generation of creators who want to make an explosion with their art. Creators who will stop at nothing to make cool shit. Creators who want to show the world that content is a sustainable industry and are ready to work with us to prove it."
