Cascade8 is the tech branch of French media group Logical Pictures.
Its activity comes straight from the experience and expertise of professionals of the content industry:
Logical Pictures (film production and financing), Pulsar Content (international sales),
The Jokers (distribution and production), and other partners.
Logical Pictures is a media investment company created in France in 2016.
. Over the last 3 years, Logical Pictures has invested in 23 international projects and established a great track record (Toronto 2017 & 2018, Sundance 2018, TriBeCa 2019, Cannes 2020).
Over the course of its investments, Logical Pictures has been faced with various inefficiencies
and delays at different stages of the value chain.
Frédéric Fiore and Yannick Bossenmeyer, founders of Logical Pictures, observed the first blockchain implementations in financial services in 2017. Convinced of the potential for simplification brought by this technology, they decided to create a blockchain-powered platform to aim at improving:
– the contractual organization of media projects (chain of title)
– the collection and redistribution of revenues generated by films (waterfall)
This was the beginning of Blockframes, a blockchain-powered platform enabling the registration (and thus protection) of all contracts related to the financing and distribution of a media project.
Blockframes also allows automated and transparent tracking of all payments
related to a film’s chain of title.
Following a successful proof of concept of Blockframes with the animation movie Terra Willy,
presented at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival, Logical Pictures launched Cascade8 to develop an ecosystem of DApps (decentralized applications): web platforms interfaced together through blockchain.
