New Form Digital continues to nurture new talent in the world of short film production.
The executive team behind New Form Digital have always followed a vision of becoming the next generation studio, a vision that is driven by meeting the expectations and needs of the modern-day, doe-eyed media consumer (that’s you!). If you haven’t met you before, you like your entertainment on demand and you also have an unquenchable thirst for new things, created by new people, every day.
We find the most talented digital storytellers from around the world and provide them with a budget and roadmap to make their vision a reality.
Founded in 2014, New Form Digital have been thinking of you, sitting in your pyjama pants, with a vacant expression on your face as you stare at your computer screen, for just over two years now. In their own words, “We find the most talented digital storytellers from around the world and provide them with a budget and roadmap to make their vision a reality.” This is the very essence of their prestigious Incubator Series, and an approach they’re committed to pursue in order to fix a permanent smile on your sullen digital native face.
With partners such as Ron Howard (The Andy Griffith Show, Happy Days, Rush to name a few), it’s clear New Form Digital are onto a winning formula. Khyan Mansley’s The Ministry, released earlier this year, is a particular triumph of the latest Incubator series. He is, after all, no stranger to executing and delivering ideas to tantalise those in need of new visual content on a regular basis, thanks to the many years he has invested in YouTube.
Backed by the expertise of Chief Creative Officer, Kathleen Grace, and the wider New Form Digital team, The Ministry achieves a sense of cohesion you would expect from a production team who have achieved Bronze Illuminati status, for 50 years of dedication to the field. The overall look of the film has been finely tuned and the cast has done an excellent job at bringing the story to life, including Mansley himself as protagonist Henry Wallace.
The Ministry ultimately leaves you with a feeling larger than the 15 minute runtime would have you believe possible. To take the viewer on such a journey, in a time frame as short as this, is a skill Mansley exercises here with ease.
