At 40 Partners, we manage a select group of talented individuals using our unique partnership model.
We find our clients the right projects and more importantly, we support them in the development of their own ideas, from page to screen.
If you write, direct, act, present, produce or even code, design or own a brand, get in touch with us and let’s talk about what motivates you and what projects you want to get off the ground.
We produce for talent, broadcasters and brands, from short-form to feature length.
Our studio is going to be a bit different though and hopefully a game-changer for talent. Stay in touch and over the course of this year we’ll show you why.
If you are a content owner or brand, we can arrange the licensing and distribution of content across all platforms, from broadcast to mobile.
“Artists are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime.... Every day, artists face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again.
Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every role, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg.
Why? Because artists are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul."
- David Ackert
