DBP Donut takes a trip into short form storytelling with “The Ride” – TechCrunch

Key Concepts

Summary (IA Generated)

DBP Donut, the advertising and short-form entertainment production company launched by Mark and Jay Duplass (darlings of independent film and TV) and their partners Charlie Leahy and Nigel Lopez-McBean, unveiled their new short-form production “The Ride” last week at the Sundance Film Festival. Both Sundance and new media platforms have done well for the two brothers. They found success with their first film, “The Puffy Chair”, which debuted at Sundance and was eventually picked up and distributed by Netflix. Animals”, their short form, animated production, which debuted at Sundance, was eventually picked up by HBO. With the new series, written by, directed and starring Linas Phillips, DBP Donut is trying its hand at creating a series for the new short form distribution platforms like Quibi or Ficto, which have sprung up to offer 7-10 minute episodes to mobile audiences, or the established streaming services Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon which have all also played around with shorter shows. […] In 2018, Netflix ordered Follow This, a Buzzfeed News series of 20 15-minute documentaries, and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the Emmy-nominated short-form series from Jerry Seinfeld. […] It’s similar to the structure that was established by the popular web series, “High Maintenance“, about a weed dealer in New York City and his brief exchanges with clients.
