The World’s First

Decentralized Movie Studio

Are you tired of watching movies that suck?

Are you sick of spending most of your night scrolling through the endless streaming menus and never finding a good movie to watch?

So are we!! That is why we are launching:

THE MIDNITE MOVIE CLUB

The world’s first decentralized movie studio.

The MMC is a community of film lovers who want to be MORE than just PASSIVE viewers. People who yearn to see fun, entertaining, genre movies get made again.

The MMC empowers its community by letting them be ACTIVE participants in the filmmaking process.

No longer will you say, “I could make a better movie than this crap” because now YOU CAN!

We are committed to bringing real world utility to the Midnite Movie Club community

Feature Film Production

MMC will use funds from the community wallet to produce feature length genre films. Our first film is already in development and will be greenlight immediately when Gen 1 mints out. Throughout development and parts of production YOU, the community, will vote via the community DAO on various creative aspects of the filmmaking process to help make the best movie possible!

You will also decide which projects the MMC will fund next. The second film will be entirely chosen by MMC members. A selection of 3-5 filmmakers will pitch their projects to the community, who will vote on which film goes into production.

Throughout the filmmaking process, MMC members will also have exclusive access to behind the scenes content from the productions. When a film is finished, we will also release special features of the movies such as filmmaker commentary and featurettes that are only accessible to community members.

Community of Filmmakers and Film Lovers

MMC is a space where filmmakers and film fans alike can mingle, chat, discuss their favorite films, actors, directors, and most importantly, share their own work to get valuable feedback from one another.

We will also host a lot of fun community events, like online movie nights, mini film festivals showcasing community members’ original films, trivia nights, and table reads of community member scripts.

Nite School

We are also dedicated to educating and empowering the next generation of filmmakers. That is why we will be launching the MMC Nite School to offer the community valuable filmmaking resources without the crippling tuition fees of film school.

MMC membership will give the community access to private “fireside chat” AMAs with industry professionals as well as exclusive content to learn about the filmmaking process. Such topics include how to budget a film, learn the rewriting process by reading multiple revision drafts of a script, putting together a shooting schedule for actual production, and much, much more…

Gen 1 NFTs

The first MMC collection will consist of 5,555 unique NFT tokens existing on the Ethereum blockchain. The artwork was inspired by the 1950s “Let’s all go to the lobby” commercial played in movie theaters and features parody references to some of our favorite movies.

The Gen 1 supply consists of 5,510 generative tokens, 45 legendary tokens, special hand drawn unique tokens – 8 of which are super rare tokens autographed by a celebrity.

This is not a low effort Fiverr cash grab. The art for our NFTs are hand drawn by our team’s Co-Founder, Bill Whirity, using Procreate.

Act I

Online Launch (COMPLETED)

The first phase of our project will commence with the launch of our Discord server and Twitter page to begin building the MMC community.

 

We will kick off the launch with our very first MMC movie night! 

Inciting Incident
Call to Adventure

NFT Mint

We will hold a premint period for individuals who bring added value to the community (less than 10% of supply), then a pre-sale for those on the MMC allow list, followed by a public sale. Dates and prices are currently TBD.

Community DAO

Since the DAO is such an integral part of allowing the MMC community to make filmmaking decisions, we will get that set up ASAP.

 

Our very first vote brings us to the next step in the project roadmap...

Meeting with Mentor
Supernatural Aid

Donate $25k to Charity

The first order of business will be to donate $25k from the community wallet to charity. Which charity (or charities) will be decided by MMC members who can cast their votes via the community DAO.

Greenlight 1st Project

After the project mints out, we will announce the details of our first film that we have ready to go! Pre-Production will commence, with shooting set for Spring 2022.

 

To celebrate, we will have a surprise for all holders of the MMC NFT.


The Team will have weekly AMAs to keep the community updated on the progress of the film, the project, and upcoming DAO votes, as well as answering any questions from members.

Crossing the Threshold
Tests & Allies

Nite School in Session

Nite School will begin with AMAs from the production team of the first MMC film. As time goes on we will expand this to even more industry professionals. Most importantly, we want to know which careers and people our community would like us to try and get for these fireside chats.

 

We will also post resources to help the filmmakers in the community who are working on projects of their own, such as sample budgets and schedules etc...

TBA After Completion of Act I...

Co-Founder

Bill is a writer-director from Chicago. He attended film school at Columbia College before moving to Los Angeles where he snuck into classes at AFI. While there, he shot his unofficial “thesis film” which he funded like a true degen by selling a boat he won on The Price Is Right on Craigslist.

He has directed a number of short films that played at film festivals across the world. He also directed the first episode of the AwesomenessTV Halloween series “Flhaunt,” and is co-creator of the viral video “Magician sells weed to the cops.”

Most recently his short film “Prey” was selected as a Fresh Blood pick for BloodList XI, Hollywood’s yearly list of up and comers in the genre space. This was the first time a film/director was featured on the list usually reserved for scripts/writers. His first foray into crypto space was dabbling in mining back in 2013 when he failed to fully ape into Bitcoin at $147 (ngmi).

Matthew Lillard

Matthew is a veteran of both stage and screen, well known for his performances in over 50 films and television shows.

He recently worked on David Lynch’s TWIN PEAKS, the world wide hit GOOD GIRLS, and can be seen on Showtime’s BILLIONS in 2022.  

His directorial debut, FAT KID RULES THE WORLD, won the Audience Award at SXSW. In 2019 Lillard founded the successful gaming company Beadle & Grimm’s. Lillard made his first crypto investment in early 2020 and is now a hardcore HODLer.

FAQ
What the heck is an NFT?

For those new to the space, we’ve put together an Intro to NFTs article HERE as well as a Guide to Crypto and NFT lingo HERE.

What is the Midnite Movie Club?

The Midnite Movie Club is a community of movie fans that want to be more than just passive viewers. They are filmmakers and moviegoers who yearn to see fun, entertaining, genre movies get made again. The MMC empowers its community by letting them be active participants in the filmmaking process. You can join the Midnite Movie Club by purchasing an NFT.

So wait, it's like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo?

No, it’s so much more than a crowdfunding platform. The MMC is all about building a strong community of film lovers who want to actively participate in the development process of feature films.

 

How we differ from those other platforms is that instead of donating money to make ONE FILM and merely getting a free t-shirt or other small perks in return, you will be a part of something much bigger.

 

Our plans are to become more of a movie studio than merely a one-off film project. As a member of the MMC you will have the power to influence MULTIPLE FILMS that we will produce.

Will I make money from the movie's box office?

No. The MMC is a club membership, it is not an investor group, and thus profit sharing is not part of the project’s aims.

 

Instead, profits from the film will go back into the community wallet where members can participate in decisions via the MMC DAO to determine which projects will get funded and produced.

Can I pitch my movie to the MMC?

For the initial Roadmap, we’re not taking submissions. But it is something we will be figuring out and implementing as the MMC progresses and grows.

 

In the meantime, you can share your films and scripts with other members in the community to get valuable feedback and find others to collaborate with via our Members Only channels.
