Blockchain Entertainment is a production company that aims to produce compelling and constructive film and television projects catered to the digital currency and blockchain communities. Here’s our review.
What Is Blockchain Entertainment?
Blockchain Entertainment, found online at BlockchainEntertainment.net, is a digital currency and blockchain technology company focused on producing films and TV shows for the community.
The company has already announced its flagship project called Capital Makeover: Bitcoin Brigade, which aims to “track the crusade to prevent Congress from unintentionally destroying the digital currency industry from the technologists’ that created it.” This is the only production listed on the website as of August 2017.
Overall, the goal of the company is to produce compelling and constructive television and film projects dedicated to blockchain technology and digital currency.
About Capital Makeover: Bitcoin Brigade
Capital Makeover: Bitcoin Brigade, is the first production created by Blockchain Entertainment. The movie promises to explore the world of American political lobbying and digital currency. In some parts of the Blockchain Entertainment website, the movie is titled “Capitol Makeover” (spelled “Capitol” instead of “Capital”). It would make sense, given the nature of the documentary, but it’s unclear if this is intentional.
In any case, the movie explores the future of Bitcoin in America’s legal framework, including how lobbyists are trying to prevent Congress from destroying digital currencies.
To make the movie, Blockchain Entertainment sought out America’s most experienced and notorious lobbyist – a man named Jack Abramoff. Abramoff once appeared on the cover of Time Magazine as “The Man Who Bought Washington”, and rose to become the nation’s most successful and prominent lobbyist before becoming embroiled in the Watergate scandal.
Since the scandal, Abramoff has taken a backseat to politics and chooses to selectively support altruistic causes. He also tries to educate the public about the scandals that go on behind closed doors in Washington.
Another key figure followed in the movie is Marcus Andrade, an entrepreneur from Texas who owns a biometrics company. He’s a big believer in bitcoin and blockchain technology and is a Team Leader at AMLBitcoin.
Together, these two have come together to coach bitcoin activists, giving them the tools they need to successfully lobby leaders in Washington to make the right choice regarding digital currencies.
Who’s Behind Blockchain Entertainment?
Blockchain Entertainment is led by President Andrew Williamson, who is also listed as the Creator and Producer of Capital Makeover. Williamson has spent his entire life in the entertainment industry, where he’s directed, produced, written, and acted across theater and film. Over 15 years in the industry, Andrew has worked with Disney, HBO, Fox, Warner Brothers, Lifetime, CBS, Hulu, The Weinstein Company, YouTube, and others. He has also co-produced well-known Hollywood films like The King’s Daughter and Birth of the Dragon.
Jesse Kennedy, on the other hand, is listed as the Co-Executive Producer of Blockchain Entertainment. He has an extensive background in marketing and creative advertising. He also served as the Co-Founder and CEO of Lagniappe Films, which produced Dallas Buyers Club. He has also produced films like Brooklyn’s Finest and Stolen.
Andrew and Jesse are the two listed members of the Blockchain Entertainment team.
Blockchain Entertainment Conclusion
As far as we know, the blockchain community doesn’t have a film or media company dedicated to producing blockchain films. Blockchain Entertainment aims to be that company.
The organization’s first film, Capitol Takeover (sometimes spelled “Capital Takeover”) is dedicated to exploring the battle lobbyists face in Washington, where they’re trying to convince lawmakers of the merits of digital currency. These lobbyists could be the difference between letting digital currencies continue to prosper – or eliminating the digital currency industry in America entirely.
