What is Filmgrid

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.

Writers with great imagination must settle for writing what the executives request, instead of their own ideas; visionary directors have their hands figuratively tied, using their creativity to meet the expectations of the "product placement" advertiser; talented actors and actresses see the very roles they were born to play, be occupied by artists of lesser stature but with the physique or ethnicity selected by the producer.

The world has changed, the viewer has changed. The streaming services are growing, not only as far as subscriptions but also in original content; Millennials are no longer impressed by the industry's attempts to compete with larger screens, specialized rooms and ridiculously high investment in marketing. They are interested in the content, regardless of whether that is television, a computer, tablet or smartphone; the medium is no restriction.

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.

We strongly believe:

  • Being talented is no excuse for a negative attitude.
  • Money should not interfere in any aspect of the movie.
  • Credit must never be taken for the work of others.
  • Respect to other ideologies and beliefs is paramount.
  • Visual effects should assist the narrative, not overshadow it.
  • Not a single member of the production team shall be imposed.
  • All relative terms to refer to a digital movie, such as film, movie or picture are fine.

    Filmgrid Roadmap

    1
    Concept | June 2016
  • Before Filmgrid, there was Primal TV, which was an idea for a streaming movie marketplace with a pay-per-minute pricing strategy, to bring independent short films closer to the public at fair prices, where the filmmakers would make the most profit.
  • After adding more ideas and new creative people got into the project, it became Filmgrid.
  • 2
    Business Plan | December 2016
  • A good idea without a plan of action is just that, a good idea. Since Filmgrid was thought as a business, a business plan had to be developed; even though it was not going to be a conventional project for funding nor direction, a structured plan must be followed.
  • 3
    Blockchain Architecture | March 2017
  • Traditional technology solutions were not enough for the ideology behind Filmgrid. That is when blockchain came in. The system architecture was easily adjust to fit the project needs, making more sense in a hybrid way, than just one technology over the another.
