Blockchain-based entertainment company SingularDTV is moving further into creating its own original content. The firm is launching 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 will steer the studio’s development and production. She will also focus on creating and implementing a distribution system for original content and acquisitions.

In addition, veteran film distribution executive Jason Tyrell will also join 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.  Tyrrell will also liaise with traditional distributors and rights holders in order to offer filmmakers the ability to distribute their work simultaneously through SingularDTV’s distribution portal and traditional channels.

The company’s entertainment division 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.

Jackson produced the films King Cobra and Blue Caprice before founding SingularDTV with CEO Zach LeBeau. She will also focus on creating and implementing a distribution system for original content and acquisitions.

“SingularDTV grew out of the need for a profitable revenue model for independent artists,” Jackson said.  “With blockchain technology we are developing tools for a new entertainment economy, that will empower artists and provide a profitable new value exchange with audiences.”

Tyrrell added, “SingularDTV’s groundbreaking approach to production and distribution is radically altering the entertainment landscape, creating a new ecosystem in which creatives can operate with complete autonomy and an unprecedented degree of transparency.  I can’t wait to share our vision with filmmakers and consumers across the world.”
