Launching an Entertainment Startup during the Pandemic 

Peter Shiao planned a hopeful 2020 launch for his startup Immortal Studios – an independent content studio focused on the martial arts-fantasy genre known as Wuxia. With money from bold-faced investors atop prominent public stages, Immortal Studios was set to become a successful company. However, the pandemic introduced unique and difficult challenges. He used this opportunity to work cheaper and faster, and launched anyway. Seven months later, he and his team have built the foundation of a digital native studio that is writing their own playbook to “Awaken the Hero in everyone.”
