THURSDAY, JULY 21ST 2022
Arabian Camels have come together with Magna Carta to host an iconic event at The historic Magna Carta Island. The purpose of the session is to bring together great minds in the world of Blockchain and the movie business (Finance, Production, Distribution), to discuss the future of Hollywood and explore how Blockchain and Web 3 technology will revolutionize the world of movies as we know it.
The Arabian Camels are considered the pioneers of merging the world of Movies and Intellectual Property, with NFTs, DeFi and Web 3. In early 2021 the Arabian Camels proposed a model that would revolutionize film financing models, and democratize and decentralize the movie business. They launched the Antara Movie NFT to finance the Swords and Sandals epic 'ANTARA', and became the first Web 3 community to start producing and owning a$45M Hollywood movie together.
We are excited to host you in the lush gardens of Magna Carta Island. We look forward to welcoming high-level disruptors and individuals working in the world of Venture Capital, Private Equity, M & A, Blockchain, Web 3, Crypto, Film, Acting, Directing, Financing, Production, and Distribution.
