The HUDSY app, launching soon, will give you free, instant access to regional concerts and events, informative local stories, binge-worthy shows that testify to the talent in our communities, documentary films, and much more.
HUDSY’s video streaming platform is a non-traditional business, cooperatively owned and brought to you by a small group of local ambassadors who are using their varied, first-rate backgrounds to protect and celebrate the Hudson Valley’s talent, diversity, recreational offerings, and culture.
HUDSY strongly believes that — much like Silicon Valley is known for technological innovation — there’s no reason the Hudson Valley can’t be well-known for a sweeping creative movement that reflects the diversity in the region and offers a more equitable future for local artists.
Not Just a Video Streaming App
The HUDSY team is building a values- and integrity-driven movement in the Hudson Valley and believes in strength in numbers. As we grow a network of local film and digital TV professionals, we are working to normalize the dignity of artists’ rights and ensure they are paid for their creative work. Partnering with local organizations, non-profits, and businesses who otherwise don’t have the means for marketing and exposure is also a priority. From the video content we’re creating, to the creative momentum we’re looking to build in the region and who we’re hiring, HUDSY is committed to helping our diverse communities thrive.
HUDSY believes that filmmakers and creatives shouldn’t have to leave the Hudson Valley or suffer through mundane jobs to make a living. In addition to our HUDSY app coming at the end of 2021, we are creating an apprenticeship program for motivated filmmakers to enter into a part-time, non-traditional learning experience that will prepare them for success in media production over the course of a year.
