A Potentially Massive & Original Opportunity
Network TV and the box office films are trying to stay relevant, these entertainment leaders are taking a different approach: streaming. Some of the hottest companies right now are Netflix, Disney, Hulu, and even Apple coming to the market.
With so many new streaming services launching what’s the one thing all these platforms will need? CONTENT!
As of February 2019, Netflix has 139 million subscribers. And they (along with all of these other streaming services) have and will be spending BIG MONEY for content.
LATEST FROM FEARLESS FILMS | Fearless Films, Inc. (FERL) Announces Acquisition of The Great Chameleon
Right Now streaming services like Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX) are spending billions of dollars on original content. According to Media Post:
“Netflix’s 2019 costs to buy, produce and license content will be $15 billion — up from $12 billion in 2018. 2019 marketing costs are pegged at $2.9 billion.”
According to a recent article that was published on The Motley Fool, the billions Netflix is spending on original content is just a small fraction of what streaming services as a whole will spend in 2019.
The article discusses how it will be a “pricey battle” for original content with some estimates putting stating that streaming services could spend approximately $40 billion on original content.
Independent Production Companies like Fearless Films (FERL) Have the Opportunity to Capitalize From This $40 Billion Dollar Content Gold Rush!
As per their latest press release Fearless Films (FERL) is the parent company of its wholly-owned subsidiary Fearless Films Inc. (Canada). Fearless Canada is an independent full-service production company founded by award-winning actor, producer Victor Altomare along with award-winning writer and director Goran Kalezic, Fearless Canada produces top quality entertainment with an edge.
Fearless Films (FERL) is an independent full-service production company! This is the exact type of company that can benefit from what could become one of the biggest cash grabs in entertainment history and here’s why…
You’ve likely heard of the big production houses:
- Warner Bros; owned by Time Warner which was purchased by AT&T (T) For $85 billion
- DreamWorks; acquired by NBC, now NBC Comcast (CMCSA), for $3.8 Billion
- Red Crown Productions; a private company that does big production deals with Netflix
It isn’t just Netflix who’s flexing billions in content budgets, Apple, Amazon, Disney, NBC, Roku – the list goes on. These are massive entertainment distributors who are now fighting for one thing… Where you spend your waking hours streaming entertainment.
Connect The Dots
Behind the billions, these streaming companies are spending are production houses ready to delivery quality titles, series, and more, BUT… There’s a big problem
Either these companies are private or they’re wrapped in such large industry conglomerates like NBC/Comcast where direct exposure to this pending boom is just a fraction of what it could be.
Such an Obvious Opportunity In The Sector, Fearless Films (FERL) is Looking to Take Advantage of this $40 Billion Dollar Content Gold Rush!
Fearless Films (FERL) has built itself upon a team of seasoned, well-established industry veterans.
Fearless Films (FERL) management has built a solid track-record, its co-founders have starred in, written, directed and produced a number of films dating back to the early ‘90s! The company’s subsidiary, Fearless Canada was founded by award-winning actor, producer Victor Altomare along with award-winning writer and director Goran Kalezic.
Years of experience and industry insight places Fearless Films (FERL) at a clear advantage when building its entertainment content portfolio that will be pitched to streaming companies.
On October 16, 2019, Fearless Films (FERL) entered into a Letter of Intent with company founder Victor Altomare to acquire the rights to up to twelve movies from a library held by Victor Altomare. Among the films being considered for acquisition are:
- The Lunatic
- Bag the Wolf
- The Great Chameleon
If you haven’t heard of these films, that’s quite alright and here’s why. Many of the streaming services with original content want to find entertainment that can be mass distributed by them first.
Ever hear of Lilyhammer? If you’re an avid Netflix and “Chill-er”, you know that the streaming giant picked up the first season to test the waters of this “not so mainstream” mob-based show.
What followed was almost cult-like. Lilyhammer was promoted as “the first time Netflix offered exclusive content.” The series went on to see 3 full seasons. Throughout the 3 season run of Lilyhammer Netflix was not the company behind the series, the just owned the exclusive licensing, a company called NRK owned it.
Starting To Make Some Sense?
What if you were able to have eyes on NRK as it struck a deal with Netflix and its show ultimately set the tone for “exclusive content”?
Right now, Fearless Films (FERL) is putting the pieces in place to amass an entertainment offering while bringing on notable names in the industry, and it’s happening at the exact moment streaming companies are ramping up their spends for original content.
Jeffrey Cole, a Research Professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, and Director of USC’s Center for the Digital Future has been following the trends of content streaming services for a while. When it came to Netflix, he suspects the service could charge even more.
“It must drive [Netflix founder and CEO] Reed Hastings crazy that a dozen years ago in the red-envelope days, he gave you five DVDs at a time and unlimited streaming for $16 a month. Now he’s giving you not just five theatrical films at a time but dozens or hundreds plus massive amounts of old television shows and $12 billion worth of originals for $9 or $13 or $16 a month.”
And what about the “new guys” on the block like Apple? Jeffrey Cole explains how important and how much money the tech giant will be spending on entertainment alone,“I think entertainment’s going to become a key element of Apple’s business. For them, spending $2 billion on [original content] is just dabbling. If they like what they see, I think they’ll have a $10 billion budget.”
Is this starting to make sense?
