Ever wondered what would happen if fans owned motion picture companies and movie studios? At the 2019 LA ComicCon I sat down with Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison, cofounders of Legion M. They are the world’s first entertainment studio that allows fans to invest in and be part of the creation of new movies, television shows, virtual reality and other pieces of entertainment content.Scanlan and Annison were able to create Legion M after the SEC passed Title IV of the JOBS Act, which allowed non-accredited investors to make investments in small businesses.
Legion M was exhibiting at LA ComicCon to talk about their slate of productions already available for viewing and promote their two latest additions, “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” which recently premiered and the feature-length documentary “Memory: The Origins of Alien” with its partner Screen Media.
Legion M harnessed the power of fandom when its members used the company’s innovative Film SCOUT platform during Sundance, which directly lead to Legion M acquiring the documentary. “Memory: The Origins of Alien” is currently screening at select nationwide theaters and on all VOD platforms.
In this interview, Scanlan and Annison talk about how and why they started Legion M, why it’s so special and how you can be part of the action.
