The White Rabbit brand can be defined in two words: Responsible and Rebel. The digital company wants to change the film and series industry for the better. This change will not only benefits the fans, but also the artist, entertainer, producer, investor and all parties involved in creating viewing content. While change is both important and inevitable, it needs to come about in the right way. This is why in their messaging they call themselves ‘Responsible Rebels’. They make sure that all stakeholders get their due.
The initial stages of their PT efforts will focus on participating in panels during film festivals, media interviews, blogs and promotion during and after the token sale, and at blockchain and crypto conferences. On these platforms one can expect to hear that White Rabbit is committed to protecting producers, investors, artists, entertainers and the industry while rewarding fans for their loyalty.
The team consists of award winning film producers and sales agents who have over 800 films between them. This impressive portfolio is likely to receive positive feedback from the rights content owners and fans alike.
The fans get a say in what content they would like to support. In the case where a series is likely to be canned, those who use digital streaming sites get a say in whether or not there’ll be another series or a sequel. The revenue generated, should a producer choose to, can use it in their budget or to source for funds with user reports as backing.
Due to cyber crimes, White Rabbit has put in place at IT system that’ll be a new standard in the $2.3 trillion dollar industry. They have also developed blockchain that international banks have integrated into their software.

They aim to do this before the token sale taking place in the first quarter of 2018. White Rabbit may also acquire select titles during Berlin, SXSW and Cannes film festivals in February, March and May of the same year. This star-studded collection of content plays a part in their marketing strategy to make the offers as attractive as possible.
