We work with groups that have a strong track record of getting film and TV projects completed. Our board of advisors have produced billions at the Box Office.
We are developing a platform that will fund TV and film projects around the globe. Writers will be able to submit their screenplays to the platform where producers can make deals with them for the right to produce it.
Each project brought to the platform will have its own project token created. Dionysus will split the profits generated with the producers of the project and project tokenholders all through smart contracts.
Token production participants such as Associate Producers, Board members and Producers can strike a deal with the writer for the right to produce it. A smart contract is created between the writer and the production participant. This smart contract will eventually represent the project as a whole. it will receive funding and it will distribute profits.
Depending on the rank of the production participant, the project will move through the system differently. Associate producers, having the lowest rank will need to gain the support of other Associate producers. This will take the project to the greenlit room where the project will need to gain the support of 9 other board members. Once it gains this support, the project moves to the Main Stage for funding from the general public. Producers , having the highest rank , may be able to move the project directly to the Main Stage for funding.
Tokens specific to the selected project will be created and distributed. these project-specific tokens may be purchased via the original smart contract created for the project.
Upon approval of the project by Dionysus, An amount of Ether received for the project will be converted to US dollars. These funds will be given to the project.Dionysus.Studio will negotiate distribution deals: The Hollywood insiders at Dionysus.Studio will negotiate distribution deal for the project with channels such as movie theaters, Netflix,Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
The movie is produced and distributed and the profits are shared between the platform, production particpants and the project token holders. If project tokens choose to, they may be able to exchange their project tokens for offers made by the production participants. the offers may include merchandising, tickets to the premier, autographs and on set visitation.
Dionysus raises capital through the sale of tokens. Executive producers submit project proposals through the platform for film and television. Dionysus decides which projects to fund, audits the budget and funds them from funds raised.
