PORTAL A is an award-winning digital studio that creates branded and original entertainment for a new generation.

Here’s what drives us.

The Internet has changed the way content is consumed. The power is with the audience – we choose what we watch, when we watch it, and can tune you out with a swipe of the finger.

But we’re still served a diet of Advertising and Programming, with a capital “A” and “P” – the beat-you-over-the-head sales pitch that momentarily distracts from what you actually want to see.

At PORTAL A, we help brands and platforms create breakthrough entertainment with a new generation of talent, dedicating ourselves to one mission: inspire a modern audience.
