CyberPictures revealed on Sunday at a private event in Cannes that it will work together with Republic to build a first of its kind decentralized movie-making platform. Aided by the transparency of blockchain technology, CyberPictures will help filmmakers, producers, and movie studios launch projects by bringing them into the emerging decentralized ecosystem. In an environment where the film industry is facing unprecedented uncertainty, CyberPictures will bring audiences closer together with the content they consume, and vice versa. CyberPictures will give users a chance to be a part of the filmmaking process in almost every way imaginable and will help storytellers and content makers break through the many obstacles they face in development, financing, production, distribution and marketing. Republic will help CyberPictures to perfect its product offering, and the two companies will work together to utilize Republic’s proven and unique securitized token crowdfunding capabilities.

CyberPictures is led by Jonah Greenberg, former Managing Director of CAA China, and co-founded by Song Ge, former Chairman of Beijing Culture, which produced and distributed three of the five highest grossing films in China (WOLF WARRIOR 2, THE WANDERING EARTH and HI, MOM). Greenberg, who is currently CEO of pan-Asian production house Salty Pictures, will serve as CyberPictures’ president.
