Canada’s 2012 Digital Company of the Year

WHO WE ARE
iThentic is an award-winning digital content company focused on developing and producing narrative-based properties for all platforms. We are digital storytellers – equal parts genre-bending live action, wisecracking comedy, trailblazing animation, and indie film with a dose of social conscience. We create our digital content for traditional broadcast, OTT platforms, iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, and social media. HQ’ed in Toronto, we also have offices in New York and Los Angeles in hot pursuit of “the good stuff.”
WHAT WE DO
We develop and produce original multi-platform content and series. We work with our partners to secure international financing. We arrange worldwide distribution in all channels. We develop apps to enhance engagement.
In 2014, iThentic produced 4 scripted series – a second season of the Emmy Award-winning thriller, Guidestones; a sci-fi comedy UK co-production, SOS: Save Our Skins; a new Mark Little comedy Space Riders: Division Earth; and new episodes of the indie comedy Dad Drives.
HOW WE INNOVATE
On the digital innovation front, iThentic recently released its Facebook game, GreenYrLife, a simulation property that invites players to ‘green’ their homes through real-life actions and gameplay. The game incorporates video series to provide players with fun, handy and entirely accessible green tips. We also moved iFestivus, our social screening platform, to beta-testing phase. A new comedy improv app called The Games, currently in development, will be delivered through social media.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
We work with producers and creators to arrange financing, production and distribution through a worldwide network. We work with brands and platforms to develop entirely original story-based content and audience engagement solutions. If you’re a platform, we can add distinctive original series to your mix. If you’re a producer, we can help bring your projects to life.
