Defiant Arc Entertainment

About

We are a Los Angeles-based entertainment company providing business solutions and production services to a wide variety of clients within the media space. Our name is derived from the rejection of the traditional Hollywood arc where it is exceedingly difficult for those not already ingrained in the industry to find success. As such, in addition to our other programs, our underlying goal is to provide low-cost resources and advisory services to all of those still searching for their big break.

what we do

Our creative services cater to the specific needs of each individual client, and can include production, branding, public relations strategy, financing and low-cost alternatives, website and logo design, as well as offering solutions to any problems that may arise during production.

Our business services reflect the business & legal needs that arise while creating content, including, without limitation, film financing, production and distribution, union and guild matters, negotiating and drafting necessary agreements, and providing licensing advice and services.
