HardFork: Steemit Trailer Premiere!

in story •  2 years ago  (edited)

Although the frequency of HardFork posts have slowed considerably since SteemFest2 in Lisbon, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes determining the best ways to raise the money necessary to fund our project.

We’re excited to announce that the fundraising phase of the project has officially begun!

We have a lot of work ahead of us to raise the $6 to $12 million dollars needed to produce our first season at the production-quality level that we are committed to. Considering the tremendously talented team we’ve assembled we are also confident that this is a challenge that we can accomplish.

We simply refuse to sacrifice the quality of our vision, so if we raise less money we will produce closer to six episodes instead of the ten that would be produced if we raise the higher amount.

The Steemit community has been an incredible incubator for our HardFork Series and we couldn’t be more grateful for the support you’ve shown us since day one.

Those who attended our presentation at SteemFest got an exclusive glimpse of the HardFork teaser trailer. We were able to produce this teaser trailer with an incredibly small budget of only $5,000. The excitement we felt in the conference room the day we presented in Lisbon was electric and, now, we want to spark that same level of excitement to investors and to the world at large.

We promised the Steemit community that we’d share this trailer with you and we’re excited to be able to deliver on that promise right now.

We hope you enjoy this:

The months ahead will be intense… filled with presentations, proposals, and grassroots efforts to show investors how our project is worthy of their support. We will be raising money through a variety of channels: blockchain/cryptocurrency development team sponsorship; Patreon; Kickstarter; private investors; among others.

We hope to make you proud. We are confident those people in the blockchain/cryptocurrency sector will recognize the value and true worth of our HardFork Series. Each member of our team, wholeheartedly, believes in the potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain to transform our world for the better.

We believe blockchain and digital currency is not just a moment, but a movement. We believe that the HardFork Series is the perfect delivery system to convince the mainstream of this fact in a fun and entertaining way.

Thank you all so much, again, for your incredible support! In our eyes, this project was born on, and will continue to live on Steemit.

We’ll keep you all informed of our progress along the way. Friends, this is truly only the beginning!

Happy Holidays!

Yours in the chain,
The HardFork Team

This is really exciting! I only just started on Steemit and really just learning about crypto-currencies; but, as an aspiring screenwriter, I know there is a market out there to get quality productions like yours funded without the limits of going through the traditional Hollywood system.
Looking forward to following your story and what it means for us as filmmakers.

First of all, thank you for the amazing comment. And you're right. We're lucky that nowadays there are possibilities for independent filmmaking than any generation before. :)

Absolutely! Best to you on Hardfork and all your upcoming endeavors.

maybe publish the script and Utopianise the project ;) ooor go the traditional route, anyways great trailer good quality, good luck with the funding and project development :)

Steemit the action movie.

then why you don't reply to me say things that can improve me to and follow my dear

When I first heard about @hardfork-series and @dougkarr I was very excited about the potential.

I immediately began looking at all of @dougkarr posts and the @hardfork-series posts. I was most excited about the potential of a "hollywood" level production being done in a decentralized way on the blockchain!

I lived in Hollywood on Hollywood blvd when I was 18 and was in the modeling/acting industry. The potential success was exciting but the overwhelming darkness of the industry was not worth it and I got out to feed my soul instead of have it sucked into darkness.

I never regretted it but have always still hoped for a "New Paradigm Hollywood"

After seeing the trailer at SteemFest I was very impressed and felt that it was even better than I was hoping it would be!

This was very nice as most of the time I am more disappointed then surprised and impressed!

Then I got to meet @dougkarr @ericvancewalton and @andrachry and fell in love with the team!

This project all in all was the most exciting individual aspect of SteemFest for me amongst a lot of awesomeness.

I have a LOT of great ideas and feel I can bring a lot of abundant energy of success to this project and would be happy to contribute my force.

Cheers to a whole new world!

Electrifying in deed! What a blast trailer is and it sure tickled my brain... Recovering the memory through a key code reasserting the integrity of it through the blockchain, wow!

Hey, I ran into what "seems" to be a glitch around 50 seconds, is it or is it not?

I loved the music, the hard-edge feeling of it all. Great job!!!

Namaste :)

Wow man that gave me chills. Thanks for the amazing post
