Angel Song by Lilian Sumner
Lobus and filmmaker Lilian Sumner have teamed up to launch a Web3-based fundraising campaign for her upcoming short Angel Song. Using a crowdfunding smart contract on Ethereum, backers deposit ETH in exchange for $ANGELSONG tokens. The tokens serve as proof of patronage based on the backer’s fractional stake in the film.
Lobus’ collaboration with Sumner spotlights how Web3 technology can be harnessed to revolutionize creative industries. By providing financial incentives to film backers, such as fractional ownership and token economics, Lobus is introducing a new way to fund and monetize short films.
Angel Song is a short film that explores the traumatic imprint lost memories make and how one retrieves and comes to terms with them. Sunny, played by Isabella Anselmi, discovers a deeper layer of selfhood, a process which helps her and her imaginary friend let go of the past.
While the short zeros in on a pivotal moment in Sunny's life, Sumner plans to develop the character more fully in her upcoming feature film Obliteration.
Angel Song will be minted as an NFT following its release. Using a smart contract, backers will receive payouts based on the amount of $ANGELSONG tokens they hold. $ANGELSONG tokens may also be used for governance over decisions like distribution and sale.
