If we hold assets what are the benefits in the future?

You will receive an amount of NXT (proportional to your holdings) from any ad revenue generated by NXTmovie.org and from the final optioning and/or sale of the completed screenplay, as a thank you for crowd funding us. :)

YES MORE CRYPTO MOVIES !!!! This is a great way to educate people, Let me know if you need help, I will be grabbing some of those assets tonight yummy. Do not be suprised if many big shots ignore you, this is just what they do to suppress the inevitable and keep the information for themselves. For example a great cartoon came out on silver called "Silver Circle" awesome cartoon but they were unable to get any attention. So keep your head up and dont lose faith because the train is coming, you can be a passenger or you can be in the way :P

Quick update, first draft of the story is complete. We are a long way from being finished but the first draft is done and being reviewed by the team now.

Still plenty of room for improvement but I like it as a starting point.

Good job, Ed!!!  I'll read it over and make comments this weekend. :)  I'm still not clear if you want some character sheets written up or not?  It sounded like VB asked for them...

Yes but just do the sheets for yourself and your daughter for now. I'll handle the rest.

Just wanted to throw this in...
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=801933.0

Don't know if you find it relevant or not. If a trailer can't be managed, maybe a trailer for the project itself (the team pitching the idea) or a filmed reading of 1-3 main scenes from the script.

Anyways, just an idea, I'm not involved in the either cryptofest nor this movie. Just in Nxt  :)

For the sake of transparency, I would like to mention here that I have gifted 1000 NXTmovie each to two of my close friends for their support during the past two weeks.  The NXTmovie came from my personal reserve.

Something that came up in our pre-production talks that deserves to be mentioned here; on the topics of Innovation and Disruption (two areas which are near and dear to most cryptocommunities).

The areas in which NXTmovie will prove disruptive and innovative are:

- First and foremost, the model we are using to finance pre-production. Most film ideas linger for years while the writer struggles to get interest. Ours was launched and funded in the span of a single day. Heck the events that inspired the film are still happening as we write it. That kind of velocity (another topic important to cryptocommmunities) is a market advantage that should not be overlooked. The writers and producers that are able to get innovative ideas on film fast can enjoy a first mover advantage that will block out other, slower film finance methodologies.

- Next to consider is the marketing impact this project will have for blockchain tech and cryptocurrencies. Even looking past the finance model the film itself is LOADED with technology that to us is an everyday affair but to the average viewer will seem like something out of a sci-fi novel. The technology really is the star of the film and I wrote it with that in mind, every step of the way. People learn contextually much faster than they do from a direct sell. Those of you with a keen understanding of human psychology, learning, and influence will already know both how and why narrative story telling is one of the most powerful forms of marketing for any idea, in the world today.

- Let's also not forget the deterrent effect it will have against other scam artists. A good friend of mind summed it up nicely, "This is the first time I've ever seen a flame war escalate into a film". Make no mistake people, this is war and we've all got a big target on our back. The willingness to fight back, to shine a light on their activity to the Nth degree will make any and all would be attackers think twice before simply moving on to easier prey. Shame is a powerful human deterrent and trust me, when I'm through telling the story of the thieves, scammers, and artful dodgers we must contend with in our community they will definitely be ashamed of what they've done.

- And last but not least we have the subject matter of the film itself. How many films have you seen that show imagery directly related to the blockchain protocol? ZERO. How many films have you seen that deal with NSA spying, the importance of encrypted messaging, the rights of those who wish to remain anonymous, the problems of cyberstalking, doxxing, etc? I've been trying to find films that speak to these problems and having found none have decided to MAKE one instead.

Suffice to say, I believe with the proper support this project can be more than just a silly little romp about what happens in our peculiar niche. Done properly it can completely change the way we create/fund films while also introducing millions to the advantages and nuances of the technology that brought us all here in the first place.

Call me overly optimistic or naive but I believe in the unstoppable power the innovation of the blockchain provides us and I believe we are just scratching the surface in terms of the industries it will transform, given time. The NXT Film Project is a humble start but with enough success it could prove a rallying cry for blockchain enthusiasts and young film makers the world over.

/rant. Thank you for listening.


P.S: one last small but interesting innovation is in our shared pre-production model. For example 1% holders of NXTmovie tokens can get involved in the process of the film RIGHT NOW. So for those of you out there sitting on 10k or more units be sure to PM me and we'll get you into the group.

For anyone interested, here's my personal soundtrack for the movie:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhY3CY0IIyhX88B_bArKganno60-JrsEL

It represents the sort of feel that we're going for with the cyber noir.  The team is hoping some of these make it into the final version of the script. :)

Im not 100% dead set on how I'm going to insert Evil Dave at this point but I'll certainly entertain the idea of making it to Amsterdam in this film. Mostly I'm writing it with an indie budget in mind so every location added is a dramatic jump in costs though. So please don't be too disappointed if we can't make it everywhere in the story but I'll work hard to find creative ways to get members of the community inserted in a way that actually drives the story forward.

All in service of the story though, that's important.

Speaking of the story, anyone want to guess it's shape?  http://www.mapachili.com/?p=2497

PS: Anyone know if this will be the first film to have an anonymous main character or star? That would make for an interesting point of record. One of the main characters is anonymous both in life and in the film world... yet is none the less a real entity that also happens to be responsible for most for the top digital assets in the world today... what a peculiar occurrence.

The points I hope to make about the right of the individual to remain anonymous (if he or she should choose) might be the most important, politically charged aspect of the film. It's certainly a discussion built on what we call in writing, "a fault line". So, with any luck I'll actually be able to reach people and get them used to the idea that some members of society will be anonymous to you and that's not fundamentally a bad thing.

I think anonymous characters are typically seen as "the Bad Guy", like in thrillers where someone is kidnapped.  The Bad Guy uses voice synthesizers on the phone, untraceable, etc.  This will turn that on its head, and I'm glad to see it! :)  I recall talking to a friend once who said that she doesn't like chatting with people on the Internet because "she doesn't know who they are."  It will be interesting to see how this character is received by the general public. :)  Hopefully it changes some minds!!

Huh? Yeah, we paid for some advertising. Ed or Mark will need to comment on that.

My personal payment from the investor funds(I.E. salary) that was payment for working on this project was invested at my discretion. I continue to hold the vast majority of assets that I received for being a team member.

So, I don't know what you're getting at. Keep your asset inquisitor stuff out of his thread. If you want to chat about our strategy and business methodology, feel free to ask questions about what we're doing and our reasoning. Don't start posting FUD or making accusations here.
