FLiK Entertainment Revolution

 

FLiK is an end-to-end entertainment ecosystem that allows for creative projects to be funded, filmed, distributed, and paid for all within the FLiK framework. This is a revolutionary approach to the development and distribution of entertainment as we know it.

 

 

Introduction

Blockchain technology is a groundbreaking technology that are revolutionizing the way companies conduct business in the 21st century. However, these technologies are still in the early stages of adoption. Consequently, many new business use applications are being marketed to bridge the gap between technical complexity and usability of Blockchain. The potential in this growing market along with increasing deployment of Blockchain business applications and the acceptance of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ether, and Dash, makes new projects extremely appealing for both start-ups and Blockchain enthusiasts alike.

Goals

FLiK is a young and innovative company that aims to bring creative entertainment projects to life, and give creatives from around the world the opportunity to earn a living in an inherently difficult industry.

Specifically, our goals are:

  • To develop an online distribution platform that will allow creatives to sell / rent their work.
  • To fund a slate (grouping) of unique and creative entertainment projects that might not otherwise receive funding.

 

Objective

Currently, we are working with various creatives to identify qualified entertainment projects to fund.  Additionally, we are in the process of developing our online viewing platform that allows creatives to sell / rent their projects.  The platform will be launched and hosted at www.TheFlik.io.

Our ultimate objective is to fund creative film and television projects and give all such projects an online home on a unique and innovate viewing platform that benefits the creatives.

FLiK Funding

Traditional film and television funding is an arduous, antiquated, and time-consuming process involving a host of bankers, lawyers, and investors. Funding a film or television show often takes years and sometimes decades. It doesn’t have to be like this.  FLiK works with qualified creatives and Producers to get projects funded quickly and efficiently.

The projects that FLiK helps fund will be available exclusively on the FLiK platform, therefore it is imperative that FLiK develops the right projects. Deciding what projects to fund and develop is certainly not easy.  FLiK has developed the following five criteria to determine if a project is “green-lit”:
  • Story – Every successful project begins and ends with a good story.  The FLiK team will evaluate scripts based on the uniqueness of the story, its intended audience, and overall appeal. 
  • Economic Viability – Once a script has been approved, it will be compared against similar projects to determine the overall success of such projects. In the industry, this is called “comps”. 
  • The Budget – After the script has been approved, and an economic viability demonstrated, FLiK will determine if the project can be Produced within a reasonable budget.  
  • Production Team – FLiK will determine if the Production team (Producer, Director, Writer) have the ability to produce the project on-time and on-budget. 
  • Sales Strategy – FLiK will analyze the sales and distribution strategy presented by the Production team to ensure it’s a viable approach in maximizing FLiK’s investment and reaching the largest audience possible.
 

FLiK Distribution

FLiK’s online distribution and viewing platform is another key component of our business strategy, and will be available at TheFlik.io. It will provide viewers with the opportunity to discover new and exciting film and television projects, and will provide a platform for creatives to keep the lion’s share of the profits.  The essential highlights include:

  • Familiarity – The FLiK platform will feel intuitive and similar in functionality to other online platforms such as YouTube, Netflix, and Vimeo. 
  • Discoverability – Because FLiK is catering to independent filmmakers and television creatives, our platform will allow viewers to discover new and interesting projects that they might not otherwise have access to. 
  • ​FLiK Tokens – FLiK tokens will allow token holders to rent or purchase projects, and will grant token holders access to premium features and subscriptions that will not be available to the general public.

FLiK Tokens

FLiK tokens will be able to rent or purchase film and television projects on the FLiK platform. Additionally, we aim to integrate with additional viewing platforms to allow them to utilize FLiK tokens; these platforms could include: iTunes, Amazon, Vimeo, Google Play, Roku, Redbox, Fandango, Vudu, and many more.  As additional platforms integrate with FLiK, FLiK token holders will have increased options to spend their tokens.  In addition to FLiK tokens, additional payment options on the FLiK platform will include: fiat currency and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dash.  FLiK tokens are ERC20-compliant tokens.

Integrated Viewing Platforms

In addition to the FLiK viewing platform, we aim to integrate with additional platforms in order to allow viewers the most convenient viewing options for their needs.  These additional platforms could include platforms such as:

FLiK Team

 T.I. (Clifford Harris) is an American rapper and actor from Atlanta, Georgia. He signed his first major-label record deal in 1999, with Arista subsidiary LaFace. In 2001, Mr. Harris formed the Southern hip hop group P$C, alongside his longtime friends and fellow Atlanta-based rappers. Upon being released from Arista, he signed to Atlantic and subsequently became the co-chief executive officer (CEO) of his own label imprint, Grand Hustle Records, which he launched in 2003. Mr. Harris is also perhaps best known as one of the artists who popularized the hip hop subgenre trap music, along with Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane.

T.I. has released nine studio albums, with seven of them reaching the top five of the US Billboard 200 chart. Throughout his career, he has also released several highly successful singles, including “Bring Em Out”, “Whatever You Like”, “Live Your Life” (featuring Rihanna), “Dead and Gone” (featuring Justin Timberlake), “Ball” (featuring Lil Wayne) and “No Mediocre” (featuring Iggy Azalea). T.I. gained major recognition in 2003, following his first high-profile feature, on fellow Atlanta-based rapper Bone Crusher’s hit single, “Never Scared”. He earned more prominence with the release of Trap Muzik (2003), which includes the Top 40 hits, “Rubber Band Man” and “Let’s Get Away”. The next year, he appeared on Destiny’s Child’s international hit, “Soldier”, alongside Lil Wayne. His subsequent albums, King and T.I. vs. T.I.P., generated high record sales and were supported by popular singles, such as “What You Know” and “Big Shit Poppin'”, respectively.

Harris’ sixth album, Paper Trail (2008), became his most successful project, with the album being certified gold for first-week sales of over 500,000 copies in the United States, additionally making it his third consecutive number one album. In 2013, he was featured on Robin Thicke’s hit single “Blurred Lines”, alongside Pharrell Williams, which peaked at number one on several major music charts. In November 2013, he announced that he had signed with Columbia Records, after his 10-year contract with Atlantic came to an end. He released his Columbia Records debut, Paperwork, in October 2014. In February 2016, he announced a distribution deal with Roc Nation, to release his tenth album. T.I. has won three Grammy Awards, namely Best Rap Solo Performance, Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

Mr. Harris has also had a successful acting career, starring in the films ATL, Takers, Get Hard, Identity Thief, and Ant-Man. He is also a published author, having written two novels Power & Beauty (2011) and Trouble & Triumph (2012), both of which were released to moderate success. He has also starred in the American reality television series T.I.’s Road to Redemption and T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.

​Trivia: In 2009, Billboard ranked T.I. as the 27th Artist of the 2000s decade.​

 As the co-founder of BitPay, Tony Gallippi has been responsible for a number of large businesses adopting bitcoin payments. During the surge of popularity of bitcoin, Gallippi was featured regularly in the media discussing bitcoin and BitPay. Around the same period, comparisons were drawn between BitPay and PayPal, with some including CNN, suggesting that one day processors like BitPay could eventually replace conventional online payment systems such as PayPal.

In 2013, BitPay became the largest processor of bitcoin payments worldwide, and began securing partnerships with major companies like Microsoft, Intel, VISA, Newegg, Shopify, and more.

Gallippi was invited by the US Senate to speak about bitcoin and the financial markets in November 2013. He stated that fraud coming from credit card payments costs businesses in the United States around $20 billion each year, and bitcoin is a far more secure form of payment for ecommerce.

In 2017 BitPay is processing bitcoin payments at a rate exceeding $1 Billion per year and rapidly growing B2B payments over the bitcoin rails.
