All people enjoy well-scripted and ably shot movies or TV shows, but few of them are aware of the hardships and the obstacles that the filmmakers often face when going through different stages of film production.
To facilitate these creative people in their tough business, an international group of producers, film directors, marketers, and screenwriters initiated a project called the International Blockchain Network of Independent Filmmakers (IBNIF) Cinemadrome (hereinafter, Cinemadrome).
The primary goal of this startup is to transfer the processes of film production and distribution to blockchain, and to tokenize these activities by the virtue of Lumiere coin (LUT). The Cinemadrome platform was built on the basis of the Ethereum blockchain in order to be able to utilize the advantages of smart contracts and ERC-20 tech standard for their token.
The Cinemadrome platform must become a meeting point for all participants in the filmmaking industry who want to relieve themselves of bureaucratic turmoil and legal complexities when raising funds for cinematographic works, conducting the processes of production and post-production and promoting their products to film distributors and viewers.
Moreover, the utilization of smart contracts will drastically reduce the chances of copyright infringement, help to settle legal disputes, and allow for complete transparency of the filmmaking and financial process, for instance, the sale/purchase of ownership rights to any of the intellectual products created by the members of the Cinemadrome network.
Looking at the bigger picture, Cinemadrome has set itself a goal of defeating the oligopoly that has long been established in the filmmaking industry. It is not a secret that a handful of global studios, such as Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, etc., are running the show, giving preference to some actors and directors while completely disregarding the others. In addition, these studios are handling most financial operations, thus creating a substantial value gap between what the filmmakers could have earned and what they actually get.
Cinemadrome aims at severing this Gordian knot in one blow by affording ground for authors, producers, investors, directors, and other participants to establish business relationships via smart contracts, thus bring the sizeable sector of the real economy to blockchain.
Besides, Cinemadrome will provide an opportunity for individual investors to devote money to the movie projects of their choosing and reap benefits after this film becomes a box office hit.
The entire token economy of Cinemadrome is based on the active use of Lumiere coins, which also grant their holder the ownership rights in movie projects. All funds must go through the IBNIF digital wallet which is integrated into the platform. From that wallet, the users can either convert Lumiere to fiat or other cryptocurrencies or re-invest in further projects.
Igor Egoroff. Project’s founder and CEO, a film director by vocation who is aspired to create a fully independent filmmaking ecosystem.
Pavel Gubanov. The co-founder and project’s chief marketing strategist and creative manager. A crypto enthusiast who has also tried his hand in screenwriting.
At this particular period of time, Cinemadrome organizes a private sale of Lumiere which provides for a 50% bonus. It is due to last till December 31. After that, the project will conduct a proper ICO which is planned to take place in the spring of 2020. Through this period, Cinemadrome will try to reach the hardcap of $100 million. At the moment, the price of 1 Lumen is $1 with the minimum investment threshold being set at $100. The restricted areas include the United States and China.

It's quite a pity that the movie products that would come out of the Cinemadrom ecosystem won't get much traction from the general audience. Not that something is wrong with Cinemadrom, it's just that most people are no longer appreciating films with deep meaning and sophisticated storylines. They just want the Hollywood stuff. Besides, the marketing capabilities of the biggest players in the industry are much larger than that of Cinemadrom and other independent studios.

I am not a crystal ball gazer, but I clearly see that Cinemadrom has everything that it takes to become a box office hit, so to speak. It is my sincere wish that this startup reaches the hardcap, because I am dying to see a quality movie that doesn't have the trademark Hollywood gloss. This industry should be about giving chances to talented young directors and actors, not satisfying the needs of corporations like Warner Bros, and such.

I have just checked the Cinemadrom website and that the token sale is going at a great pace. They are currently in Stage 3 of the private sale and have already surpassed 43% of their funding goal. Apparently, people around the world have grown tired of the products of the Hollywood factory, which are becoming increasingly predictable and stereotypical, only with the improving visual effects. Cinemadrom offers a chance to experience new films with fresh ideas and deeper-running scripts. Hope that Cinemadrom will live up to its potential.
