Former Razorfish and Sunbather creative director Mike Bennett plans to launch a digital studio called Empty Space at the end of the month.
Together with partner Arvind Ethan David and chairman Ian Charles Stewart, also head of Rothschild’s Internet fund, Bennett plans to create digital content in the fields of entertainment and media, for multiple digital platforms.
“Empty Space will be a digital studio for a wired world,” says Bennett. “The company is a creative focal point for numerous digital projects. We will consider anything as long as it can exist in more than one medium; one of our more horrible catch phrases is that we are ‘platform agnostic’,” he continues.
Empty Space will begin developing projects in partnership with producers from all creative disciplines, including film, games, and architecture, as well as digital media and design.
Included among the digital projects planned is a comedy channel for the Web, mobile phones with Internet access and broadband platforms. The channel will provide comedy content, live webcasting, commerce and a virtual community.
