Ethervision Will Become SingularDTV’s Los Angeles Officebr>
Blockchain entertainment startup SingularDTV will soon open its first Los Angeles office for TV and film. Ethervision will be an arm of Zurich-based SingularDTV, handling rights management and decentralized distribution.
Details are scant on the project, which is currently shopping for business development and content partnership executives. However, goals for the executives include creating a viable content line out of two to three new verticals areas like gaming, YouTube, social influencers, and short form lifestyle content; spearhead a negotiation with a marque artist for acquisition of a film at a major film festival, or enroll an A-list actor or director to bring their next project to SingularDTV – in other words, “deliver a major partnership win that is highly visible in the entertainment industry,”‘ according to its ad.
In August, SingularDTV announced it was moving further into creating its own original content with the launch of a new entertainment division that will finance, produce and distribute original films and TV series and acquire exclusive content.
SingularDTV co-founder Kim Jackson was named the company’s President of Entertainment and is in charge of steering the studio’s development and production. She will also focus on creating and implementing a distribution system for original content and acquisitions. Veteran film distribution executive Jason Tyrell is also on board as the company’s VP of Content, leading the studio’s acquisitions and distribution strategy. He most recently served as Director of Content for Vubiquilty, where he oversaw the licensing and distribution of hundreds of feature films and television programs.
The company’s entertainment division claimed it will present filmmakers and artists the opportunity to capitalize on its proprietary blockchain-based technology in order to fund, distribute and market their content in a peer-to-peer ecosystem,.
SingularDTV is also developing a slate of original productions, including feature narrative and documentary films, as well as a previously announced episodic sci-fi series.
