Storyrocket is the ideal place to connect story writers with producers in the entertainment world, including movies, reality shows, and web or tv series. If you don't have connections in this arena, your story probably won't be seen, no matter how good it is.
According to Storyrocket president, Emmy award-winning producer Ana Benitez , “there are more distribution channels than ever and they need more and more content, and that content is everywhere.” That's where Storyrocket enters the scene, creating an opportunity to build a bridge between the creators and the content distribution industry.
The Storyrocket web platform provided the basic functionality required, but there was a need to add a variety of new features and refresh the image of the platform.
They got in touch with Angel Lacret , Chief of Product Development and Cobuild Lab’s CTO to build a software product that would solve two problems: first, it would allow writers and screenwriters to share some of their work to create more exposure, and second, it would function as a content pool for producers looking for new and refreshing stories.
Cobuild Lab was given the mission of building a Version 2.0 of the platform, upgrading its look and feel as well as many of its core functionalities and backend technologies.
The platform needed more substance in terms of code, so we formed a team composed of the best back-end developers, a QA Tester, and a Project Manager. The task was clear: improve the basics of the platform and the documentation.
As for the functionalities, we conducted extensive research and listed those that facilitate the connection between writers and producers. Of course, this stage would involve redefining the type of application, since Storyrocket will work as a professional network, so it was necessary to customize it from head to toe.
Once the cobuild process started, we added a UX/UI designer and a front-end developer to work on the redesign of the website, we did a series of tests until we perfected the one that best fits the project; among the objectives outlined it was clear that:
The result was a software product that serves as a newsfeed or professional network to connect writers with producers. Storyrocket's value proposition is to open the doors to the entertainment industry, with over 1000 writers from around the world that now use the platform to promote their projects to producers.
