Hi, my name is Troy Murray, I'm a indie film maker in Los Angeles (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2264383/?ref_=tt_ov_dr) and have been involved with Bitcoin for around 2.5 years now. I've been working with theProtocol.tv (https://www.theprotocol.tv/ & https://angel.co/theprotocol-tv) so if you've ever watched anything from them you might have seen some of my work as a cinematagrapher. I'm not listed on Angel because Valerian got married recently and has been swamped. I'm looking for a coder who can help me implement my idea into a fully functioning website that can facilitate what I'm thinking about.

On March 25th, 2015 the SEC ruled in favor of Regulation A+ of the JOBS Act (https://www.sec.gov/news/pressrelease/2015-49.html) allowing for unaccredited investors to invest in small businesses and start ups starting on June 25th, 2015. The biggest problem with crowdfunding a movie is that your investors (fans) never get a true return on their investment, at best they get a copy of the DVD and signed memorabilia. This can all change with Regulation A+, and by using the Ethereum we can issue shares of a film to investors who can actually see a return on the money.

As an indie filmmaker, I have always had issues with asking people to donate money to me to make a movie and then ask them to pay money to go and see that film. I found it disgusting that there was no way for you to offer equity in your film because of regulations. I also felt the sting of this when I bought the first Oculus Rift, which started the company and then said company was bought for 2 Billion, would have loved to see a return on that seed money. I think using the Ethereum is the best idea. This will bring more value to Ethereum and I personally believe this will be the first to try this and will help usher in a new era of crowdfunding.

I have larger ideas for the company when it comes to the film and movie industry and ways that you could leverage the exchange into a powerful media broker in the business. I'm looking for a programmer that would like to take on a job that would pay off in equity in the business. We can talk about the percentages of equity if someone out there is interested in this idea and working with me on building the future of media creation and distribution.
