The proliferation of portable cameras and video editing software today has created new opportunities for both aspiring and established filmmakers. It is now possible to film an entire movie using only GoPro or an iPhone. However, this ease of production for filming, as well as reduction in costs, does not address the continuing need for a direct connection between independent filmmakers and their audiences.
Currently, most of a film’s budget and revenues go to distribution and marketing third-parties instead of directly to filmmakers. While many filmmakers today turn to crowdfunding to secure funding, and in spite of the availability of crowdfunding platforms, thousands of small companies that produce independent films are still not able to monetize their creativity. This lack of funding leads to many talented filmmakers and screenwriters turning to exhibition venues, such as YouTube and other video blog platforms, for revenue.
With our secure, tamper-proof, and failure-resistant system, based on blockchain technology, clients are able to gain access to a vast amount of unique cinematographic content that is not available from global chains, such as Netflix, youtube.com, or other similar services. Our aim is to occupy a multibillion dollar niche, using the wealth of our existing client base, our unparalleled connections in the independent movie industry, and our unique bespoke front-end platform that is available on Android, iOS, SmartTV, desktop, and set-top-box worldwide.
FORECAST GROWTH FOR THE ONLINE FILM INDUSTRY
Currently, global box office growth rates are gradually slowing down. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) reveals that over the past five years, the volume of global box office revenues is growing at an average rate of only 1.5% per year, with 60–70% coming from international distribution (Figure 1). This decrease in film revenues can be explained by several factors, such as growing economic problems in particular regions, the informatization of society through more widespread Internet use, the growth in sales of mobile devices, and the global spread of Internet piracy, as well as changes in media consumption habits due to generational shifts in both developed and developing countries.
According to IHS Markit, around 164,000 movie theaters are in operation in the world, an increase of 8% from 2015. More than 90% of these theaters are digital. The leader in terms of growth in number of theater screens is in the Asia-Pacific region, which has increased 18% since 2015 (Figure 2).
As audiences decline at traditional movie theaters, the Bureau of Economic Analysis indicates that the online video entertainment industry is one of the leaders of economic growth (Figure 3).
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) estimates that, in 2018 the global revenue of the film screening market will exceed $110 billion. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) reports that the six major movie studios (Warner Bros., Disney, Universal, 20th Century Fox, Sony / Columbia, and Paramount Pictures) account for 80% of the U.S. film industry’s total revenue. In contrast, the U.S. film industry market share held by independent filmmakers in 2016 was 20% (Figure 4).
This provides confidence that the market share of independent film producers will continue to grow. MoviesChain by TVzavr will ignite a positive feedback loop that will lead to an even larger increase in production and the market share. Our platform will further facilitate an exponential growth of the client base, therefore affirming the secular trends observed in the rapid proliferation of new technologies, platforms, and applications (Figure 6).
