Overview

“Hollywood has controlled what we watch for the past 100 years.”

Why do bad movies get made? Because the wrong people are in charge of producing them.

Only a handful of Hollywood executives decided that you wanted to see Shrek the Third, The Emoji Movie, the live-action The Last Airbender, plus all the sequels, remakes, and soulless content that makes up most of our film industry.

The system for producing movies is broken. Did you know 80% of Hollywood movies fail? You know what’s surprising about that statistic? That statistic isn’t surprising.

Think of the last 10 movies or TV shows you watched. How many actually filled your soul? How many were just empty calories?

Imagine all the billions of dollars wasted on movies NO ONE ASKED FOR.

Angel Studios puts the power into the hands of the people who are actually watching it. We believe that by putting that power in your hands, you can help us build a home for stories that amplify light.

You know which shows matter. You know which shows are "honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, or worthy of praise." (Phil 4:8)

When you invest in Angel Studios, you're not creating more of what's out there. You become part of stories that matter.

What is Angel Studios

We are a film studio platform that helps creators come together with viewers to create high-quality TV and film without the Hollywood guesswork.

So how do we do it? The content is created by the greatest film executives of all time. You.

...and Steven Spielberg (if he invests in us. Last chance, Steven).

Producers use our platform to pitch film content to you, and then you --the audience-- choose which projects qualify for investment.

We’ve seen time and time again that when an audience chooses what gets made, what gets made is exponentially better than guessing.

Angel Studios VS. Hollywood

Hollywood represents such a small percentage of the diverse groups of people that live in this world and yet it creates the majority of the content.

We’re not math experts but we know that ratio doesn’t make sense. So we decided to give you the chance to choose what you want to watch.

We think it’s crazy that so many TV shows are so bad. Most of us just scroll through Netflix for two hours instead of watching a movie that would take the same amount of time.

You’ve been making fun of horrible movies for years. You knew the interspecies romance in The Bee Movie was going to be bad—and that’s why we trust you to choose the best content better than anyone else.

Especially Hollywood. Because somehow Jerry Seinfield convinced them The Bee Movie was a great idea. And he’s supposed to be one of the good ones.

To paraphrase something Jerry would say, “What’s the deal with bad movies?”

Why should you invest?

Creating original content through a crowd of Angel Investors is the future of TV and Film.

Empowering people to choose what gets made while allowing them to share in the profits is a game changer, to say the least.

The movie business is a $280 billion industry (source PwC) that impacts every person on the planet that watches screens and it’s about to be disrupted in a major way

There is no team who can pull this off like Angel Studios can.

Why are we so confident we can pull this off? Because our model has already pulled it off. Multiple times.

In 2018, over 19,000 of you wanted a TV series with a historically accurate depiction of Jesus.

These investors invested over $10 million dollars to produce The Chosen, which became a smash hit, being viewed over 100 million times, generating over $30 million dollars in revenue in 2020.

In contrast, Hollywood produces most of Seth Rogen’s movies because Seth thought it would be fun and we know how most of those turn out.

The Chosen isn’t just a financial success story, it’s almost universally beloved with 12,000 positive reviews on IMDB and a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score.

To put that in context, the Avengers movie only got a 91% Rotten Tomatoes score, and they had all the infinity stones.

Thousands of other Angel Investors raised over a million dollars to fund The Tuttle Twins, the most crowdfunded kid’s cartoon in U.S. history. And the accompanying Tuttle Twins books have sold over 2 million copies.

And most recently, fans of Studio C raised over a million dollars for an original sitcom called Freelancers.

And We forgot to mention: we created this model and knocked it out of the park while being sued by Disney and negotiating a settlement.

Not to brag but if we could accomplish all of this while battling the largest corporate behemoth the world has ever known, imagine what we could do without a legal battle AND your help?

We want to enable creators of TV and Film to produce content that matters to you, plain and simple.

Plus, we want you to make money. When Angel Studios see big returns, our Angel Investors will share in our success.

We can’t make any promises on future returns but...

If you had invested with us in round 1 back in 2016, your investment would be worth almost 3X today.*

That’s infinitely more financial return than Hollywood has ever given you.

Since generating over $47 million dollars in revenue in 2020, we believe we are at the beginning of something huge.

You have the chance to invest in us today and grow together.

There’s no reason why you shouldn’t join the 30,000+ Angel investors* for $8.90 a share. At the very least, you’ll be an angel, and that’s a pretty cheap entry to heaven.

And, of course, when we grow, you grow. In 2016, our offering was for $3.00 per share, we’re now valued at $8.90. That’s an almost 3X return on investment.*

*Angel Studios will build out the platform its affiliates will use to operate regulated offerings on.

**The number 30,000+ refers to the combined sum of investors who have invested in Angel Studios and any other issuers through Angel Funding.
