Slate Entertainment Group has decided to Combine the Head-Scratching Worlds of Cryptocurrency and Hollywood Accounting for Greater Transparency



Slate Entertainment Group has announced the development of its new multi-layered entertainment ecosystem powered by advanced blockchain technology. SEG is a highly-skilled amalgamation of entertainment, business and technical expertise and will be led by CEO Michael Moyal. Respected industry banners such as XYZ Films, as well as senior film executives originating from leading companies such as eOne, will serve on the company’s Business Development and Advisory Board. Driven by a cryptocurrency designed for mainstream adoption, the company plans to launch two robust platforms to compete with leaders in the streaming video and electronic ticketing sectors.

Binge™ is a decentralized streaming video on demand platform and will be the first service to provide premium content using distributed ledger technology. The Binge blockchain video on demand (BVOD√§) network will introduce an industry-first business model of equitable compensation based on complete economic transparency. As a result of blockchain technology, the platform will have the ability to deliver low cost, high-speed, high-definition video globally, as well as transparent real-time payments and view metrics. Binge will provide equitable sharing of not only the economic waterfall between content provider and creator, but of valuable data that will help creators produce better content. Strategic content acquisition will continue at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Slatix™ is a tokenized ticket application that will provide forgery resistant event tickets at near-zero fees. The application will provide for the discovery of content through a curated ratings-and-reviews system. Repeat users and contributors will earn loyalty rewards and discounts to entertainment activities such as movies, concerts, plays, and sporting events.

Both platforms will be powered by SEG’s blockchain entertainment utility protocol underpinned by a cryptographically secure multi-layered network. In addition to traditional methods of payment, the platforms will accept Slate™, a digital token of the entertainment economy providing access to cutting-edge entertainment. Built on blockchain technology, its distributed, immutable ledger enables secure payments and structured incentives.

Michael Moyal stated: “to execute on this initiative, we have assembled a talented team of professionals with diverse skill-sets. Our objective is to strategically disrupt the current entertainment ecosystem using blockchain technology and corporate integrity. Our business model of complete transparency is intended to enrich the entertainment experience for consumers by fairly compensating producers for the value they create. The Slate Ecosystem is committed to enhancing an industry that is essential to so many.”

SEG plans to have both platforms operational within the next twelve months and is now aggressively acquiring and producing original content for the Binge platform. The company is also working with early adopters on initiatives that could see event tickets being purchased through the Slatix application, using Slate as payment, as early as Q3 2018.

Nate Bolotin, XYZ Films co-founder and SEG Board Advisor said: “We believe that eliminating corrupt intermediaries and unnecessary barriers in the entertainment industry and creating a more efficient and transparent content delivery system is the future of distribution and consumption. ‘Blockchain’ is a buzzword right now, but when it comes to powering the distribution of premium content, Binge truly has the capability to connect talented storytellers to consumers with unparalleled transparency and access like never before.”

The Binge network will utilize the power of blockchain technology to facilitate the global streaming of content through a sophisticated series of Masternodes which will serve as the platform’s content storage and delivery protocol. Distributed ledger technology will also enable the transparent sharing of behavioral analytics with content creators in order to better identify and satisfy consumer tastes. SEG intends to compete on the basis of premium content with leading centralized streaming service providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
