Screenplay submissions can be made via Mogul’s online platform.
Mogul Productions, the decentralized film financing (DeFiFi) and NFT platform, today announces its next call for scripts from filmmakers around the world to take part in Mogul’s second film showcase. The announcement follows Mogul’s first-ever film slate vote, which ends on August 19th – Mogul is already preparing to make its next move.
The top projects selected by Mogul’s film team will enter a fan vote conducted by Mogul’s community of STARS token holders. Films that receive the most votes from the community will receive funding from the company. The project selected from this showcase will become Mogul’s second title to get funding based on STARS token holder votes, an entirely new way to leverage Defi to democratize the independent film space.
Qualifying submissions will be evaluated by Mogul’s Film Selection Committee, which consists of Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated producer Cindy Cowan (Traffic), Emmy-nominated producer David Cormican (The Tall Man), and award-winning actor Lyriq Bent (The Affair, Book of Negroes). Films projects will be assessed on a number of factors including the size of budget, commercially viability, key attachments (director, key cast), and the amount of financing secured to date.
“Mogul is disrupting the way independent films are made by leveraging Defi to transform conventional methods of film financing,” said Mogul’s Co-Chair of Film Financing, Gorav Seth. “By democratizing the process, we are empowering fans to participate in the decision making process and vote for the films they want to see made. Mogul is also providing filmmakers with an entirely new audience – one that is aligned and incentivized to ensure success for the projects they help get made.”
Cindy Cowan provided commentary, “I am extremely excited to be a part of another major milestone for Mogul and the independent film space. Mogul is disrupting the industry and levelling the playing field by giving power back to the audience and filmmakers themselves.”
Mogul’s community not only has the ability to select the films that get financed, but also participate in the process from script to screen. Fans play a vital role in the process by providing feedback to the filmmakers along the way and sharing in the rewards and profits from the films themselves.
Thanks to Mogul, there are 50,000+ new aligned and active voices who are here to make a difference.
Users can now sign up at my.mogulproductions.com and submit their projects for consideration.
Only projects that have 50% of their financing confirmed will be given consideration.
