Filmgrid is seeking to create a redundant platform that provides a fair innovative alternative to movie business; removing intermediaries from the creative and producing processes. Where independent filmmakers and viewers can interact in order to create better movies with richer content and true artistic freedom. The application will offer the services needed for this to be possible: The Billboard. A movie marketplace where creative users offer their movies and viewer users can buy them and stream them. The Pitchboard. Where film projects can seek funding either by obtaining it from the Filmgrid’s production fund, pre-sales or collective production. The Critique Bay. A social network environment that promotes the connectivity between all the users and the spread of ideas. Filmgrid will use the power of blockchain technology to manage transactions and hosting the smart contracts that will secure funds, voting, and other important aspects that make Filmgrid unique.
Filmgrid is a blockchain platform for commerce, streaming and financing of independent films and series over the Internet. Of decentralized nature, removes all movie theaters and film distribution companies as intermediaries, allowing a fair distribution of profits among the film's creators, which at the same time allows for a reduction to the cost of the offer to the public.
The platform is divided into two main segments: the "Billboard", a billboard showing the films registered in Filmgrid for sale; and the "Pitchboard", where film ideas and on-going film projects can seek financing.
Each film or film project registered will have its individual page where all the relevant information can be found; this space can be used by the Creative Team to convince and sell their product to Users.
