How does this solve the funding struggle?

You just put cryptocurrency in the chain, probably hoping to appeal to people who hope it will rise in value like bitcoin did. Filmprojects now seem more like a vehicle to sell tokens to join the blockchain bandwagon, instead of the tokens being a means to simplify funding.

Think of it as a kickstart/indiegogo platform, you will "tokenize" your work or maybe whole artist, fans will buy these tokens, investors will invest if they see potential, these funds goes to the artist to make future projects, who holds major portion of the tokens. This is one way to look at it. This all happens in blockchain, so it's clear and transparent what happens. If artist becomes popular, the tokens could increase in value, which in other hands put more cash in the artists hands to do more pieces...

This is very difficult to explain still, but once the platform is out probably October, they will have explanation videos, etc. Currently the call centers have been setup and people will start answering questions you might have.

Crowdsourcing is not the best comparison because it works awfully for film financing.

Good thing its not just films. And be in mind this is still diffetent type of crowdsourcing, you will get piece of the profits, because you own some tokens, if you buy those tokens and if it might even go up in value. Theres a huge incentive to invest to these in cryptoworld, trade them for more money etc. And in the future just plain regular people will start to invest, this is coming to our everyday lives..

How can the popularity of an artist increase the value of tokens?
That suggests every artist gets it's own currency, which will make it difficult to trade with them.
If all artists get the same 'currency', 1 popular artist won't influence the exchange rate.

Also: what profits?
Of the increasing value of the tokens which will most likely be increasing because of FOMO or pure speculation? Sounds very volotile.

If the 2007 crisis has shown something it is that if you can't explain a financial product, you shouldn't sell it :p

Actually they do get their own currency aka tokens. You could even get own tokens per movie if you like. Just look previous posts with Gramatik is the first artist token to launch. SingularDTV will have an exchange also where these can be traded directly, other exchanges could follow if they choose.

Currently cryptocurrencies are mined out of thin air and for example bitcoins total value is 62 billion dollars.

But you dont need to put any money in it. Your backers will be putting it in. So this in turn increases the value of the token which gets you more to express yourself. And backers get tokens with value that can go up or down.

But Im not affiliated with this product, only beleive this will bring more value for you guys and girls. Only a movie/tv series fan..

In other words they ride the cryptohype by taking money from fans, giving them tokens that are connected to 1 artist or project. Or they take money from fans to give the artist tokens.
Or do artist and fan/investor both get tokens?

To me it just sounds like a middleman taking real money to give back tokens that need to be exchanged again befoire they can be spent in the real world. So they can take their commission twice.

If all tokens go to the artist: there is no incentive for investors.
If only half of the tokens go the artist and half stay with the investor who hopes it will increase in value what will that do? Will it motivate investors to motivate others to invest in the same artist and thus increasing demand for those tokens?
If that is the case it is just some blockchain multi-level-marketing scheme that comes close to a ponzi scheme.

An artist needs to spend money to create what was promissed. This means the artist has very little room to wait and benefit for a possible long term increase of the value of their tokens. So, where is the added value?
Actually there is added risk: there is a change that the tokens become worthless and a production can not be finished.

Yeah, I'm a bit sceptical, because I feel that the tokens are artificially put into a crowdfund construction.
