Angel Song: A Film by Lilian Sumner

Lobus and filmmaker Lilian Sumner have teamed up to launch a Web3-based fundraising campaign for her upcoming short film Angel Song.

Lobus’ collaboration with Sumner spotlights how Web3 technology can be harnessed to revolutionize creative industries. By providing financial incentives to film backers, such as fractional ownership and token economics – Angel Song highlights a new and exciting way to fund and monetize short films.

How it Works

Using a crowdfunding smart contract on Ethereum, backers deposit ETH in exchange for $ANGELSONG tokens. Tokens represent ownership in the underlying IP rights of the project. Revenues due back to the production will be divided between filmmakers and token holders.

$ANGELSONG tokens may also be used for governance over decisions like distribution and sale. For backers who currently don’t have ETH we recommend Moonpay a fast and simple way to buy and sell crypto.

$ANGELSONG holders will receive access to a private Angel Song channel within the Lobus Discord which will function as a DAO for the project.

About Angel Song

Angel Song is a short film that explores the traumatic imprint lost memories make and how one retrieves and comes to terms with them. Sunny, played by Isabella Anselmi, discovers a deeper layer of selfhood, a process which helps her and her imaginary friend let go of the past.

While the short zeros in on a pivotal moment in Sunny's life, Sumner plans to develop the character more fully in her upcoming feature film Obliteration.
