Proposed retail price of project
Proposed discount for the Cap3 DAO
Describe the project
Manifesting DAO is a web3 entertainment company that produces film & television projects. Think Netflix, but built for web3. You own your membership, you decide what gets made. Manifesting DAO allows its members to participate in the filmmaking process, bringing fans closer to creatives.
Does the project have any unique characteristics or IP?
Manifesting DAO has a unique operational component that sets us apart from projects like ours: a curation layer called the "Creative Guild." A council of esteemed artists, cultural influencers, and industry experts ensures that we hold the highest standard in our body of work by only introducing film and television projects to the DAO that meet an exceptionally high bar of quality.Currently we have three film & television projects in development: 1) The Manifesting TV series. A half-hour dramatic comedy that offers a sexy, empathetic look at the dreams and desires of four lost millennials grasping for love, success, and higher-purpose in the city of Los Angeles. Think HBO's Silicon Valley meets @overheadLA. 2) Lucid Dreaming, a docuseries that lives in real time, exploring and discovering the emerging paradigm of web3 as it transforms the planet with a new economic mindset. 3) I Feel Nothing, A 90-minute suspense thriller that tells the story of a corporate loner’s failure to reintegrate into society after having experienced a weeks-long surge of adrenaline at the hands of his kidnapper. Think Hostel or Saw.
