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.

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.

The idea at the core of Cinemadrom is so simple yet so brilliant. It must be applied to any area of business that has been usurped by large corporations. I am not an anti-globalist by any means, but it is obvious that the contemporary movie industry is in a state of permanent degradation. It seems that all they care about is a larger box office revenues. Of course, Cinemadrom won’t be able to compete with the likes of Warner Brothers, but I am sure that this project will produce quality movies that will find the appropriate audience.
I really hope that Cinemadrom will change the face of this industry. I am sick to death of summer blockbusters and all that kind of rubbish that had been fed to us by the corporation for decades. I want cinema to nurture my intellect and make my soul bloom. After giving Cinemadrom a thorough background check, I can say with confidence that this project has what is takes to disrupt the industry. I am not a filmmaker by vocation, but I am getting myself some Lumiere to keep abreast with the developments in this amazing community.
I am an aspiring film director from the Netherlands, specializing in making short movies and social ads. After studying the project’s concept I can say in full confidence that I will vouch for it any time of the day now. Most people just don’t understand how hard it is to make films if you are not cooperating with some huge corporation with unlimited funds. Cinemadrom might become the real deal for all directors, actors, and producers. The good thing is that I am also a crypto enthusiast, so Lumiere will be the next addition to my portfolio.
