Hello everyone, this new post I want to introduce about a very interesting and good project that is FilmGrid, and for more details, let's just go to the following discussion:
The film industry is vicious. Unable to learn from its mistakes, it has fallen into a cycle of sequels, crossovers and reboots, where the Film Studios financial motivation outweighs any creative new content.
Only in a few cases it is possible to appreciate the passion of the artist in the silver screen, it has been worn out mostly by executive layers that suppress originality; instead, adherence is made to over-used formulas and unethical business strategies, where the decision-making power of a project falls on executive producers who have no experience as filmmakers.
Filmgrid seeks to use technological, operative and ideological innovation to provide a fair commercial alternative, to generate equality between users and to promote art. By getting rid of unnecessary intermediaries, the creation of better films will be promoted. That way the direct participants receive a higher percentage of the profit, and they receive it sooner.
Watch this video!
FILMGRID IS A PEER-TO-PEER SOLUTION FOR COMMERCE, STREAMING AND FINANCING OF INDEPENDENT FILMS AND SERIES OVER THE INTERNET.
Filmgrid's core ideal is to disrupt the movie industry in favor of the moviemaker, not the suit. Of rebel heart, its principles are the base for its business model design, decentralizing as many aspects of the movie industry as possible. The adoption of Blockchain technology will allow us to build an unstoppable application, that shares Filmgrid beliefs.
Filmgrid does not depend on a third party for production nor release decisions, it depends only and always on the users, placing the trust in the Blockchain; leaving intermediaries interests out of the equation. And even though there are rules, no one controls it.
A FUNDING PLATFORM BY POPULAR PARTICIPATION - (THE PITCHBOARD)
If there are Creatives with a cool movie project, or a very good idea for one, they can use Filmgrid's Pitchboard to fund it. All there is to do, is upload a description, an image, giff, teaser or trailer video and a budget to participate.
It's not quite crowdfunding, yet it relies on the crowd. There are three options to do so:
- A Production Fund, where the crowd, in this case the platform users, will decide voting upon the catalog of projects in display on the Pitchboard which ones will get part(or total) of such fund. One or more projects may be funded in each round.
- The fund will reset in cycles, all projects can participate as much as liked.
- An old fashioned Presale, where the user can buy the movie before it is made, in order to support its Creative Users with the production of the project.
- The patrons of the project will always be in control of the proper usage of the presale funds, according to the Creative Team's production plan.
The help of a Production Pool made by users that are interested in movie production.
These Investing Users get the opportunity to take part in the financing of the project, in exchange for a percentage of the profit generated by the product.
This way, the project is committed only to the Viewers, and never to movie moguls.
The Production Fund management, the voting and the dispersal of funds will be secured by Smart Contracts in the Blockchain, assuring the veracity and appropriate usage of the funds; every Creative User member of the funded Creative Team can trust the platform will release their respective payment, therefore everyone can focus in making a great movie.
A CINEMA SOCIAL NETWORK... ish - (CRITIQUE BAY)
A Social Reputation System will provide the best quality control, delivered by the users themselves; rating Movies and Creative Users, bad quality or poor Movies won't make to the top, with the possibility of getting permanently banned.
Users can use reactions to interact with each other in the platform.
Since is a network, a connection channel gets open, where Creative Users can find key members for their crews, or find a crew where to contribute, and most important, learn from the Viewers feedbacks.
(Don’t worry, in purpose long boring movies won’t pass the Social Reputation System)
