Keep your content safe with permanent data storage. This service maximizes the value of your content and creators by allowing you to compile portfolios and earn new work and revenue in the Marketplace.
Asset Management - Using IPFS technology, this distributed data storage system is designed for permanent storage, ensuring that important content is not lost in the event of an emergency.
Portfolio - Creator introductions and works can be posted. Enter film festivals, sell contents, and connect with companies for project matching, etc.
Marketplace - Using blockchain technology, create a system to return profits to creators by converting content, authenticating authenticity and clarifying ownership.
Our service is based on a completely different concept from other cloud storage services. Not only does our storage service provide a place for your content, but it also allows for promotion and sales. Furthermore, we are a global company that operates the largest short film festival in Asia, accredited by the US Academy Awards, and unique to Japan. This allows you to increase the value of your content by submitting it to our film festival.
Of course, you are also welcome to simply store your content with us. We offer a persistent, distributed data storage solution using IPFS technology, ensuring that your precious content is never lost. With the ability to store your content indefinitely, it may gain value as a historical record and valuable heritage in the future, perhaps 100 years from now.
You can easily create a portfolio by selecting your content from our storage.
Users or companies who see your portfolio may contact you to purchase your content or offer you new projects.
You may also receive collaboration offers from other creators.
While we currently handle only video content, we plan to expand our service to include a wide range of content such as photos, scripts, music, lyrics, lighting techniques, acting theory, and more.
Our service will continue to grow as a platform for showcasing your talent to the world.
When someone around the world finds value in your content and purchases it, you will naturally earn the profits from that sale.
However, after that, each time the user who bought your content sells it to another user, a portion of the sales will be returned to you as the original rights holder.
Even with content sold in the past, the more it circulates in the market, the more a portion of the sales will be returned to you. This can become a sustainable and new source of income for creators.
Furthermore, not only can you sell ownership rights to your content, but you can also sell various rights such as viewing rights and secondary usage rights. This means that business opportunities are likely to expand.
There are four major steps required to use the service.

Visual Voice Inc. develops a comprehensive short film brand, SHORTSHORTS. It’s film festival, “Short Shorts Film Festival & ASIA” (SSFF & ASIA) held since 1999, is accredited by the Academy Awards® and is one of the largest international short film festival in ASIA. SHORTSHORTS leads the film culture through various means such as its screening events, film distribution, production and collaboration work with companies and administrative offices. The arrival of the new 5G era allows communication with greater data capacity. This means that people are able to enjoy high-quality video content and movies on their mobile devises such as smartphones. On the other hand, realistic film experiences, beyond the idea of a cinema, is increasingly emphasised. While supporting young creators through various activities and events, SHORTSHORTS broadens the field of short films.
In 1999, actor Tetsuya Bessho, member of the Screen Actors Guild of America (SAG), has worked to introduce the then new genre, "short films," which he first encountered in the United States, to film fans in Japan as the American Short Shorts Film Festival. In 2001, the festival was renamed the Short Shorts Film Festival. In 2004, SSFF was recognized as an Academy Award® accredited film festival. In the same year, with the aim of promoting new visual culture from ASIA and nurturing up-and-coming young filmmakers, the Short Shorts Film Festival ASIA (SSFF ASIA, co-sponsored by Tokyo Metropolitan Government) was established and the festival is now known collectively as SSFF & ASIA. To commemorate the festival's 20th anniversary in 2018, the Grand Prix film was named the "George Lucas Award" in honor of director George Lucas. In January 2019, the Short Shorts Film Festival in Hollywood was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the festival. Beginning with the 2019 festival, in addition to the Official Competitions (International, ASIA International, and Japan), the Non-Fiction Competition and this year, the Animation Competition Best Short Award winners have also become eligible for nomination at the Academy Awards the following year. SSFF & ASIA will continue to support young creators through the festival.
