Name of Project
Every great writer in town has a passion project that can’t get made… now with Next Hollywood they can. For Hwang Dong-hyuk, that “passion” was SQUID GAME, rejected by studio execs for 10 years.
We’re building NEXT HOLLYWOOD: support your favorite movies and games, building a fan-led movement into the $1 Trillion American Film & TV market. We have several major showrunners and filmmakers on board. Dave Steinberg shared a phenomenal thread explaining why he’s a supporter:
Tapping into an annual market of $140 billion, fans work directly with your favorite filmmakers and producers to create the next great film, television series, or video game. Our platform allows anyone to sell collectibles to support their film, tv, and game productions. We spoke at harmony’s DAY ONE event.
why this team?
The Next Era of Hollywood is on its way. And it’ll look a lot like tech’s transformation in the late 2000s: talent-led art, financing, and entertainment companies that alter the landscape of Hollywood. Talent isn’t just the product. We’re the builders too.
What stage of the product or idea are you (and your team) at? Is it live on Harmony and/or another chain? How many active users do you currently have, or aim to acquire? How much funding do you need? What are your milestones? What help do you need, or what gaps are there in your team?]

Looking forward to the first milestone for a Testnet Launch built on Harmony.
“Testnet Launch” means launching a feature-complete product on Harmony Testnet. We define feature complete to include a user interface, connection to a wallet (Metamask, Harmony ONE Chrome Extension, etc.) on Testnet, and can be tested end-to-end by at least 100 users.
