  • BETHENNY FRANKEL

  • DAYMOND JOHN

  • MARK CUBAN

There's a slight pause as the Sharks (above) shake their heads and scribble some notes.
         - continued -

           WALDO

  • Since the early 1900s, Hollywood has been synonymous with entertainment. Movies, television and Stars - breathtaking scenery, glitz, glam - a land of dreams and fantasy.
WALDO morphs into BANJO.
  •     BANJO
  • But I tend to gravitate to a grittier, more one-off version of Hollywood.
         - continued -

           BANJO

  • A place where all types of interesting folks come to chase all kinds of fantastical rainbows.
  •     BARBARA
  • Can you give us an example?
WALDO aka BANJO morphs into UNCLE POPCORN.
  •     UNCLE POPCORN
  • Film Reviews In A Snack serves up candy visuals as an emotional analogy for the tone of a movie.
              - continued -

           UNCLE POPCORN

  • They're colorful, relatable quick-reads that Viewers often Like in large batches.
              - continued -

           UNCLE POPCORN

  • Film Reviews In A Snack has a complete strategy deck that lays out how the concept can expand to benefit movie theater chains, Streamers, Big Snack, delivery services, chefs, ticketers, festivals & award shows and more.
  •     DAYMOND
  • That’s interesting. But let’s say I’m not really a movie guy. What else you got?
WALDO aka UNCLE POPCORN morphs into KID PORCELAIN.
  •     KID PORCELAIN
  • Toilets in the Wild is the world’s largest photographical collection of abandoned toilets.
              - continued -

           KID PORCELAIN

  • Funny, but never gross - Toilets in the Wild has been celebrated by the United Nations for innovativeness and shunned by Guinness World Records for being too weird. It's totally unique content - well poised for partnership opportunities. It's also an attention-getting way to lead recycling efforts.
  •     LORI
  • I mean that’s pretty interesting, too. But do you have anything... less toilety?
WALDO aka KID PORCELAIN morphs back into BANJO.
  •     BANJO
  • 💯 is a series of 50+ posters that promote Hollywood truisms.
  •     MARK
  • (smirks) So is it all concepts, pictures and script type stuff?
WALDO aka BANJO morphs into AUNTIE LITTER.
  •     AUNTIE LITTER
  • Actually Mark, there's also services, artwork, community efforts and products - like ButtsOut: fire-proof, smell-proof portable ashtrays shaped like a little tush.
  • HAVE THE HOTS FOR THEM

  • GIVE A FLYING FLICK

  • FAVORITE HOLLYWOOD CRUSH

  • SMOLDER HOLDER

The Sharks nod their heads.

              - continued -

           AUNTIE LITTER

  • Already have an established Australian-Chinese manufacturing relationship and distribution rights to the Western hemisphere. ButtsOut is chock full of ‘green’ corporate sponsorship opportunities and is just the kind of little thing that could make a big difference in tackling one of the world’s largest littering problems.
  •     ROBERT
  • Wow - that’s an incredible amount of stuff. How’d you come up with all this?
WALDO aka AUNTIE LITTER morphs into YO.
  •     YO
  • Like you Robert, I log a ton of miles. And while hoofing my way through the hills, streets and alleys, I seem to have a knack for capturing the light-hearted-ness in the trends of Hollywood’s underbelly.
WALDO aka YO morphs back into WALDO.
  •     WALDO
  • And those visuals and interactions are incorporated into the products, services, scripts and digital ideas you see here today.
  •     KEVIN
  • So are you dying, or just giving up?
There's a slight pause as the Sharks lift their heads from their notes.
  •     WALDO
  • Ha! Hopefully neither Kevin. I'm confident this is the ideal garden for these seeds to be re-potted so they can grow and thrive.
  •     BARBARA
  • But why Shark Tank? Hollywood already has their own well-established pitch system.
  •     WALDO
  • This is true. But while Hollywood is the original shark tank, this Shark Tank (points to the Sharks) is where a new generation looks to sing and dance to make their dreams come true.
  •     DAYMOND
  • Nothing more Hollywood than that.
The other Sharks nod their heads. They agree with the sentiment.

WALDO morphs into JACQUES.

  •     JACQUES
  • Championship Parties has become one of those well-planned, shoot-from-the-hip, roll-with-the-punches, reach-for-the-stars, play-the-long-game cuz anything could happen kind of ideas. It's how future fight champions may some day be crowned.
CHAMPIONSHIP PARTIES
THE EATING WITH A BEATING
WALDO aka JACQUES morphs back into WALDO.
  •     WALDO
  • Championship Parties represents the kind of go-for-it spirit and think-on-your-feet qualities start-ups really need to take off.
  •     LORI
  • Okay, but why now?

WALDO morphs into ME.

  •     ME
  • The landscape is ever-evolving. To scale, partner and grow, it has to be more than just ME.
Meet the team
ME = CEO
Me = Management
me = Staff
me = Intern
        - continued -

           ME

  • Me Inc. is the generic face and attitude of each of our corporations within. It’s diverse, inclusive and equitable - tackling the internal comedy and drama of the work at home crowd, sole proprietors, entrepreneurs and anyone doing their thing their way. One-frame comics are ideal for print and Online syndication.
Me & You are a lot alike
  •     BETHENNY
  • Ha! When I started Skinny Girl, it was me, me, Me & ME all day every day. I can totally relate to this bust your little ass off mind set.
  •     Mark
  • When I was selling door to door, it was all about trying to be in my best headspace.
WALDO aka JACQUES morphs into CURLY.
  •     CURLY
  • And confidence always helps create the best attitude, right?
         - continued -

           CURLY

  • Divas Hair Streaks are instant oomph! These clip-in, colored hair streaks have all the ingredients to be the next big thing. (slight pause) Divas Business in a Bag contains everything kids need to start and operate their very own franchise.
  •     LORI
  • Ooh, I like that a lot. Very QVC.
  •     CURLY
  • Thank you Lori - totally agree. Divas is also the inspiration for a scripted television series called "Home Girl" about the hectic life of a wife, mother and business owner.
  •     Mark
  • So basically you’re emptying the junk drawer and offering us a bunch of stuff nobody’s ever bought?
WALDO aka CURLY morphs into STEVE.
  •     STEVE-O
  • Actually Mark, I believe it’s more akin to an episode of Storage Wars in Beverly Hills.
Note: Storage Wars is a popular A&E Reality show where buyers look to strike it rich after getting only a quick peek inside storage units before having to decide if they want to bid.
  •     BARRY
  • I’m not at liberty to divulge who it was, but one of us once found $7.5 million in cash in a locker that cost $500.
  •     STEVE-O
  • As I said, "we" are here to tease the locker and give you an initial look at a wide swath of smart, likable assets you can naturally fold into your world of offerings.
  •     DAVE
  • Yuuuuup!
Defuse • Enthuse • Amuse
  •     DAYMOND
  • So break it down for me.
WALDO aka STEVE morphs back into BANJO.
  •     BANJO
  • Giddyup! Collectively, these properties are called Tasty Nuggets.
          - continued -

           BANJO

  • Individually, they represent a wide range of one-of-a-kind products, services, scripts, artwork and community efforts - each created with numerous revenue stream possibilities.
  •     ROBERT
  • You say wide range. Care to be a little more specific?
WALDO aka BANJO morphs into BRANDO.
  •     BRANDO
  • Life Scripts showcase real people using professional Marketing advice to uniquely address real-life personal situations.
          - continued -

           BRANDO

  • This type of Personal Marketing has mass-market possibilities and is truly a breeding ground for interesting story. Have already helped a street hustler increase his curb appeal and turned a wallflower and a schlub into centers of attention. Good times.
Deano: Male Prostitute
          - continued -

           BRANDO

  • Life Scripts is also fresh Reality television, where scribes craft thoughtful, entertaining solutions to Contestant’s personal issues. Then, armed with answers, players compete to see who can pull off their solution best.
  •     BETHENNY
  • Sh*t - I wish I had someone cleaning up some of the crap that came out of my mouth. Might have saved me a whole lot of time.
Everyone laughs.
WALDO aka BRANDO morphs into BISTRO.
  •     BISTRO
  • Tasty Cafes will create a positive start to the day by providing provisions, a sense of dignity and professional confidence to Hollywoodites in need. Inside each sponsored van are all the makings of a pop up cafe and mobile help center.
Popup cafes could be pretty tasty
WALDO aka BUD morphs into RIGHTONMAN.
  •     RIGHTONMAN
  • We’ve also connected those who write with those who read.
          - continued -

           RIGHTONMAN

  • Writeonman’s quick-read visual presentations allow Agents, Managers and production companies to get a taste for a read before committing hours to a full script. For writers, it’s a chance to set the stage for a good read. For investors, writeonman is a potential gold mine of untapped material.
  •     ROBERT
  • Okay okay - a wide range - we get it.
  •     BARBARA
  • Tell us about you.
WALDO morphs back into STEVE, the lights dim and a video begins to play.
Note: "They Call Me Steve" is Teenage Bottlerocket's ode to the video game Minecraft, which allows players to explore, interact and modify. A lot like STEVE.
The lights fade back on.
  •     KEVIN
  • Steve, Waldo, Kid Toilet or whatever your name is - can you explain why these nuggets, as you call them, haven’t sold squat?
WALDO aka STEVE morphs into BUD.
  •     BUD
  • Many of these properties were created as communication experiments for specific audiences. Like the Canna-crowd -
WALDO aka BUD morphs into MR. P.
  •     Mr. P.
  • Or to showcase relatable issues. Like for men turning 50 -
WALDO aka MR. P. morphs into PEPPY.
  •     PEPPY
  • Or as graphic script presentation exercises -
WALDO aka PEPPY morphs back into STEVE.
  •     KEVIN
  • Again: no sales - how tasty is that?
WALDO aka STEVE morphs into YIKES.
  •     YIKES
  • With a narrow, one dimensional gaze it may not seem pretty, but I assure you Kevin, it is all quite beautiful.
The other Sharks laugh - they love a good crack-back.
WALDO aka YIKES morphs back into WALDO.
  •     WALDO
  • Each IP has been battle-tested on a limited scale so they are still very fresh.

Say hello to Porñatas: 3/4 life-size and appropriately filled for each event. Comes with customized whacking stick. They are ideal for:
• Bachelor and bachelorette parties
• Press and photo opportunities at parties and clubs
• Agents, Managers and Publicists wanting a memorable gift for celebrity clients
• Adult companies searching for a unique, attention-getting promotional item
• Strip clubs (Filled with drink specials, merchandise, dance discounts, etc.)
• Movie / TV sets looking for unique party props
• Unique, colorful, attention-getting store mannequins

          - continued -

           WALDO

  • Confident that by infusing them into your already created infrastructures, each is poised to immediately scale. Or, each of you have teams doing things on behalf of the other properties you invest in. Some of these nuggets might blend in nicily with those endeavors.
  •     BETHENNY
  • I mean, I like the ME cartoon thing - could be something kinda cool.
  •     LORI
  • I'm all in on the hair streaks.
  •     DAYMOND
  • There’s definately some interesting stuff here. ButtsOut and that Tasty Cafe could work nicely along with Bombas and some other things I have in that space.
  •     LORI
  • Would you consider deals more... a la carte?
WALDO aka TWIST morphs into ANNYEONG.
  •     ANNYEONG
  • Thank you. That is something that could definately be entertained.
  •     MARK
  • Would you think about coming on board one of my teams as an Ideator or creative Marketer? We’ll make a sport of it.
WALDO morphs into TWIST.
"Mi Barrio" - LA’s entertainment industry & immigrant community compete for more than just kicks.

"Lace ‘Em Up" - When roller hockey meets roller boogie, it’s wheel love.

"Love of the Game" - Inspirational Reality series follows badly injured amateur athletes on their road to recovery and return to the sports they love.
  •     KEVIN
  • Enough already! We get it - there’s a lot. What would it cost for you to sell the whole locker and get lost? You wouldn't have to do anything.
Everyone laughs.
WALDO aka ANNYEONG morphs into MOOT.
  •     MOOT
  • "We’re" listening.
  •     ROBERT
  • Well... you were right. This really has been a dance around Hollywood.
WALDO aka MOOT morphs back into WALDO.
  •     WALDO
  • And I want to thank each of you for your eyeballs and interest.
WALDO morphs into BIG NO NO.
  •     BIG NO NO
  • We should do this again.
Note: Mulligan Do-over is a pre-school edutainment property developed around the positive things that result from second chances.
WALDO aka BIG NO NO morphs into BANJO ON THE BLOCKCHAIN.
  •     BANJO ON THE BLOCKCHAIN
  • Confident we can take things next level.
From nowhere, a fresh Shark emerges -
  •     RICHARD
  • Did someone say next level?
  •     BANJO ON THE BLOCKCHAIN
  • Hollywood Street Club NFTs showcase the sweet and sour vibes of Hollywood street life - digitally painted with scripted stories and next-gen utility and community. They're amazing conversation starters that NFT art collectors & crypto investors will spark to. Hollywood Street Club
