Seed follows three startups from around the world as they descend on San Francisco for AngelHack’s Silicon Valley Week. Ethan, Devin, and Pulkit are high school kids from Palo Alto who think they’ve got the tech to breakthrough, and Shaher drives an Uber in New York to fund his company back home in Palestine, where his partner Ahmed keeps the coding going while supporting his family. Bettirose and team Report Taka traveled all the way from Nairobi, Kenya with an app they hope can save lives back home. Dreams will become uncertain and partnerships will be tested.
The film was directed by Andrew Wonder and produced in partnership with AngelHack, the world’s largest and most diverse hacker community. Wonder began his career as a 17-year-old field producer for MTV and worked on the Emmy Award winning series Made. He has been on many unlikely adventures, including living with mole people, teaching high school, raiding drug cartels with the DEA, and capturing the last days of NASA’s space shuttles in 3D. Technology has always been an integral part of Wonder’s storytelling, which has led him to design new VR solutions, rebuild Kubrick’s trademark zoom lens, and create his own unique style of working with digital cameras. For Seed, Wonder used many rare film lenses from the 1930s to capture a unique cinematic feel. Wonder’s latest work was the viral hit, GE’s “Juice Train” which was featured by American Cinematographer for its innovative way of capturing a 48 hour anamorphic time lapse on the front of a locomotive. The film was funded with financial support from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
