Megahoot “MEGA”, a US-based blockchain technology, Cybersecurity and smart technology company, has appointed writer, artist and publisher Lawrence White as its company’s Chief Creative Officer “CCO” who will lead all creative efforts for MEGA’s online and print graphic novels, online gaming platforms, brand collateral for the company’s film, TV and comic book projects.

Lawrence will also advise platforms integrated in the MEGA ecosystem on their creative development efforts and develop creative for its current and future subsidiaries and brands such as Spartan Modular Technologies and Falcon Components.

Having worked with Lawrence, albeit briefly, on some of his previous comics projects, and being aware of his singular ambition to push the comic’s form into the digital space with a firm anchor on strong storytelling, this is a terrific development for him and oft-discussed plans for new comics.

 

Lawrence White is an accomplished writer, artist and publisher, a professional, freelance illustrator since the age of 12. His first job was working on graphic design for the local news station in Pocatello, Indiana. He has worked independently for numerous companies including AT&T, 4Leaffilms, Globotics Inc., Entertainment Express, Canwood Entertainment, Battlestar Galactica – and created conceptual designs and sequential pages for numerous indie film and comic book companies.

Lawrence attended the Art Institute of Seattle for Visual Communications and is the founder and publisher of Legacy League Productions, a multimedia company that will produce comic books, cartoons, live-action shows for movies and television, as well as video games and graphic novels for children, young adults and mature audiences.

“Lawrence is a talented artist and one of the true creative professionals that I’ve come across that has the ability to envision a project then execute creating original and proprietary graphic designs and other media for such projects. I’ve known Lawrence for over a decade and his work has always spoken for itself, we are proud and excited to have him on the team officially.” stated Louis Velazquez, Megahoot CEO.

Lawrence will also work closely on the creative for film and television projects involved in the Mega Movie Fund, developed to spearhead an issue in independent film making, to insure that solid brand collateral is in place to further assist in the success and monetization of such projects.

The Mega Movie Fund was set up to confront deeply embedded problems in the traditional entertainment industry that include filmmakers having limited resources to launch their projects, equity holders worried about the level of risk associated with such projects and the age old issue of how to bridge that gap. The Mega Movie Fund bridges that gap in a very unique way and makes every attempt to mitigate the risk for current and future equity holders of an independent film project.

Each slate of films include different genres, directors, cast and The Mega Movie Fund provides full project funding via the use of digital assets that is held by the fund. Each film project will incorporate blockchain technology for 100% transparency on a step by step basis as the film progresses. The public ledger will show each and every financial transaction and its purpose. This avoids any potential fraud or mismanagement of funds as all funds will be allocated according to the approved budget, which will be verifiable line by line, either by the fund, investor, filmmaking team or general community.

With the issuance of the asset backed Mega Movie Fund “MMF” coins , any investor in the fund would have a store of value in their accounts and not just an agreement with a long term hold. They will have the ability to trade their MMF coins in one slate of films for coins in another MMF fund, transfer the coins to other private parties for liquidity purposes, trade their MMF coins for other digital assets that are available in the Megahoot Digital Vault, acquire more coins to increase their exposure or just hold onto them for the long haul until all the projects are generating the projected revenue. Alan Goldberg is the head of business development for the Mega Movie Fund.
