"They're telling you we don't like it. That's right right. That's interesting using the free market to your advantage. Yep i like that idea. And so how many people come traditionally to to you. I mean it seems like you know people. Listening to this program are suddenly going to say. Hey i got a short film In my dresser drawer let me pull that out and put up there and see what happens. So we get requests daily and we have a process for people to apply and to be able to have the chance to be funded. But i mean that's really exciting that you're doing it that way. You're not just doing it for the projects that you have initiated. But you're you're letting other folks come in. Well we think that the audience the community a no better than a few executives in hollywood. What's going to succeed. Well we know that's true and it's of funny that it is true. You you probably are familiar with william f. Buckley once said rather famously that he would rather be governed by the first three hundred names in the boston phonebook then by the faculty of harvard university and what he was making an important point in a clever way that you know your average folks They've got common sense and they know a lot more than the elites do because they're in touch with reality and that's what. This country was founded on the people governing themselves. Not being governed by elitist globalist. Ball's not that there's if anybody is a member of an elitist globalist kabbalah. I'm not here to offend you. You you can worship satan and dues you like. But i'm just saying in my world that's a bad thing so so what What can we look forward to. Because i'm really fascinated. This seems like a possible game changer. For me for for for for the country for the world to have this as a possibility that creatives can just go do things and you can see what happens. Yeah what this means is that everybody out here can be part of stories that matter. You can have an impact on culture. You don't have to sit by the sidelines and so even if you don't have an idea if you're not a creative you can go there and see if you like something and send one hundred dollars to say. I want to invest in this. So let's say somebody puts in something turns out to be real dog and it doesn't reach a certain level then. Obviously that money goes back to the people that's right so and who determines whether the funding being asked for is appropriate. Whatever you guys do that at angel studios or how does that. There's an application review process to make sure that that they have the they have to rule. This is ordered liberty this is representative government electro college. There are a group of you that have to be involved. It's not a bad thing so the creator needs to actually publish information. Like what their budget is. They need to say how they're spending the money. Yeah so we don't actually say your budgets incorrect or it's correct but they need to be accountable to the audience and the community for what they're saying of course and and we see those as fixing themselves. That's right it. Sounds like a limited government operation. I like it. i'm still fascinated. When did you get the idea to do this. Because this is a really huge undertaking. So the idea started in twenty twelve one some brothers we thought we want to create a product for families. This is you and your brother. Yeah brother therefore brothers the floor originally and but only two of you were in the ad agency that did the potty stuff three three yep all right and you said you wanna do what so. We wanted to create a way to show our young kids popular. Hollywood movies without like without the f. bombs and and then we thought if we attracted an audience that we allow them to skip over things that they found offensive that we would be able to create content for them. That was better than hollywood is creating so we created a company and then the idea for the crowdfunding came when we were sued by disney in two thousand sixteen and and we were sued two weeks after we asked our audience whether or not they would be interested in investing in the company disney got wind of that and they sued us to to stop that funding. And we said well forget the funding. We just need to survive. You guys still wanna invest and we said we need five million dollars to to beat this lawsuit and they invested ten million dollars in five days and one of the brothers after that after that happened he called me and he said q. Imagine if we applied this crowd funding model to media and the idea and nothing ever. That's right are you kidding. Who wants nothing ever happened. In america went down the tubes. Thank you very much. Glad that that you neil harmon saw the possibility because it is funny. People get ideas but to actually execute on it. It's a big deal. This is a big idea. Angel dot com is where folks can find you. We've got thirty seconds left. What else do we need to know. Were shot in for hurry because that lawsuits totally over. The thing is over. Whole thing's over. Wow so We survived disney lawsuit and and onward and upward from here. So if you want if you're a creator and you want to. Yes i am. I if you want if you want to answer to your community rather than to hollywood yes they do then go angel dot com and if you are a movie or film or tv series fanatic and you want to be part of stories that matter then go angel dot com back shows that put some stuff up on there and we'll book my audience to see if they like it. This is a brilliant idea. A wonderful idea neil harmon. God bless you folks to angel dot com. Thank you thank you eric..

"And what you're doing. God bless you to be continued at the end. Our means air contacts is show. I'm talking to neil harmon. He's the ceo of angel studios Neil i understand that you hate hollywood. We have in common. What are you. What is angel studios. So angel studios allows creators and To answer to their community rather than hollywood It sounds like a bullet point Like a slogan. What do you mean by that that means. Have you ever heard of the chosen. The chosen tv series starring. Jesus yes i've never heard of it. So the chosen was funded. By nineteen thousand people season was funded by the audience by their community and and then angel studios provided a distribution platform to take that to the world. Gee i wonder if we could do this. Chris chris. himes is here my producer. What a great idea. When i heard about this. I'm not up on everything. I understand crowdfunding and stuff but the idea that you're able to film a sorry to fund something which everyone i talk to says is fantastic. The chosen you can find it online. There's an app but it's really super high quality and you have funded it that way and so you're doing other things that way or is this the main thing you're doing right now. So no before the chosen. Our first project was called. Dr are comedy which gets over a billion views a year. Ri- bar comedy. What does that mean that. It's just stand up comedy. That's funny for everybody so rand safe. Yeah how can you be funny without the bumps in this day and age. Now come on but so it's called dry bar comedy. How do i find that Just drive our comedy dot com dry bar. Comedy dot com. Yep so you funded that and what. Part of that needs to be funded. You need a brick wall and a microphone. So what are you doing the distribution funded so we shot over three hundred Standup comedians from all over north america. And then we built out a distribution mechanism for it other projects that we've done recently are a freedom series an animated series about freedom. It's called the tuttle twins so like a mixture between the simpsons and the magic school bus. It's educational and it's super funny the simpsons and the magic school bus my heads exploding so and it's called the tuttle twins. Okay so and you're working on other projects. What's in the pipeline as we say in show biz we just so. Andrew peterson wrote the series. The wing feather saga the wing feathers. Saga yes that sounds if he what does that about it is. It's like some kind of a fantasy trilogy. it is but there's quite workable feather saga. Does it have kind of like tolkien writing on it and stuff. I hate that stuff. Go ahead there's four books so you can be in on this one. There's not three okay. If i can be in then i like it. Okay so but you you have other stuff. i mean. this is a lot already that you're talking about wing. Feather just closed a five million dollar round to make their first season tuttle twins the same. We did a around for.

"People funded by million dollars and twenty days. Golly wow that's a lot of money yes they know how many people funded eight thousand eight thousand did that much. He's lau that's incredible. That's actually encouraging evokes. There's hope for humanity. Listen neil it's great talking to you. I promise. I'm gonna watch the chosen i. I can't not otherwise. I'm going to keep getting harassed church. So i will But i just the work that you guys are doing with interested in what vigil did and everything. It's just it's nice to you guys out there. So i'm glad you could stop is absolutely. Thanks very much delighted to have you guys with me today wrapping up. I will be back in the bunker tomorrow. There won't be any background. There may be becker that the kids are screaming one day. I'm going to have an office of my one day one day but by the way Neil harmon mentioned. You can if you're interested. I'm actually i really interested in this I interested in in watching. Josie the peacock network which is nbc's new network which is screwing stuff up for me. Because i've got the nbc. Sports package for golf. Yes i. It's like the one sport that i can watch on tv and zone out Which i also came in handy because fly into texas night before last was the the lightning gain against the islanders. And you couldn't get it on. The plate has a direct tv package with no sports of espn. So i was able to get it on. My is it technology amazing. I was able to stream a hockey game at thirty five thousand feet going five hundred miles an hour on a plane and then streaming into to multiple headphones via bluetooth. So two of us could watch and listen. I was just stunned. Technology is glorious thing but it sure can be used in terrible ways in any event the So you can get on on peacock. tv the chosen. I don't mean to dwell on this topic. But i just given all the interruptions with with interviews of had been able to finish the boy one of the things that i do. Every day i got yesterday. Someone was criticizing me on social media. That oh you just you just pair at fox news actually. I don't read fox news for show prep for this program. And the reason i don't is i presume that most of you watch fox news and so i try to read other stuff. I mean i'm certainly aware of what's going on with fox. But i try to read and focus on other stuff in large part because i don't want to be the guy who just parrots to you. Everybody else's i mean they're certainly stories. You gotta talk about the their big stories nervous talking about it. I would be negligent. If i didn't talk about them. But there are a lot of other stories out there that i know in my orbit of listers friends and family. They're not aware of them because they're an outlets that they're not exposed to and i'm increasingly aware that there are a ton of outlets that i have to be like for example the amount of conspiracy theories i get from people. I know whether it's related to the election or or the like It's i'm i'm kind of stunned at the number of people who find the stuff because they're all surfing the same channels they connect through facebook or rumble or youtube and they take on a life of their own and oftentimes. They're misled like for example. There's a breaking news article this afternoon that what's his name. Oh jim baker. Jim and tammy faye i i. It's tammy who died. But i thought jim baker was was sixty eight hundred. Well he's not maybe six feet under jail but he's not there either but he's settling for hundreds of thousands of dollars a lawsuit. He was peddling some cure on television a covid cure. It was a scam and the poor people who are listening to him and buying into that stuff and you could go on channels on the internet and find it in it treated it as legitimate and wasn't this scale and people were buying it would protect him for cove or some such a wooden on radio so it must be speaking to products. I i will tell you a product that i actually do think works In in i've got real world experience in my house twitter this the eaten pure thunderstorm. The thunderstorm is an air purifier. You're holding your hand you can. You don't have to plug into the wall and it clears the air. It doesn't mask. Odors eliminates odors and right now eden pure is bringing back their famous. Buy one. get one free sale. Cer- most part of their product. The thunderstorm air purifier. They've sold over one hundred thousand of these counting the thunderstorms sweeping the nation people everywhere raving about how well it works to get rid voters. I had to tell you. I can fry shrimp in my kitchen. I don't have an exhaust fan in the kitchen. I can turn on the eden pure thunderstorms and it gets rid of the the fried shrimp smell. My wife despises shrimp. She despises shellfish. And i loved to. I i make a fried trip taco. Y'all go eat of your dot com. Get the recipe. It's fantastic the. But i got cook it outside except we my wife leaves town and she doesn't know and i can fire up the thunderstorm and i could cook it in the kitchen. The other night is pouring down rain. Outside of the one of the trip had friends come over. And so i just i knew i could. Could your kitchen turn on. the impure. Thunderstorm would eliminate the sodas. It wouldn't wouldn't ask them and eliminate them. it also allows black mold. It's great now. Listen you don't even have to research discussion. There are no air filters to replace. it's fantastic.

That's even pure deals. dot com. the code word is eric bogo at checkout little checkout code. Now you gotta hurry because this deal is going to end on. The twenty-seven shipping is free. You gotta try this stuff now. I mentioned again my recipes. Because i'm a big advocate and building commuter not just getting fat but also building while you're enjoy delicious food that makes you fat which is a cross bitten. You don't have much protein. They tell you to eat if you're trying to lose weight and like not lose a bunch of good gracious. I gotta eat whole chickens every day. It's it's insane but nonetheless. I put up recipes at w dot com. Because i really do believe that we should live our lives offline not online around the kitchen table even with people. we may disagree with politically. But it's worth it because they're good people and we disagree on politics in. Life is too short to be mad at everyone who disagrees with you on politics with otherwise. Good people I i'm finding more and more. I learned so much from people. i disagree with. If we're all made in the image god Find someone you disagree with politics and become friends with him and other ways and you can actually live a happy life. I do think that's part of the secret to living a happy. Life is not being surrounded in an echo chamber like so many people are these days. Where did they get surprised with guy. They thought was going to win. Does it in new york city..

"And as you said, a lot of it is not of Kenan's doing. If at all she becomes is aware of this narrative that surrounding her career. I i. hope she doesn't take too badly. I hope it's not some ways her down. So overall. I don't think we're telling you to you have to you don't have to be a fan. Just that people wanted to hear. Be The the many opinions swirling around this young woman like folks were in both of our DM's individually asking us about this ahead of this episode and I've seen it online asking other podcasts from other people to talk about it on their show. It's it is the thing that I've seen. Internet in the last week. Okay. There it is. There is doubles what we got. Yes. So eager take was actually in the semifinals of doubles with her partner Nicole Mellow car who was the runner up at the US Open. They defeated Laura Ziga moment and Verizon Arabia in Brown to who were the US Open champions they won by retirement. They also beat Patrick Assures for the number six seed and the great story of Muhammad. And just glow who reached the quarterfinals to go out to contact and Medicare is who typically partners Taylor Townsend. But Taylor didn't make the truck to the French Open. As. We mentioned earlier lead innovate Baba's won the women's doubles title after being thrown out of the US Open beating Gotcha and Krawczyk on the men's side Kravitz and Mies defended their twenty nineteen Roland Garros titled beating the US Open Champions multi poverty and Bruno. Suarez. They also beat the US. Open, runners up in the semifinals. Cool off. This is a great story. These guys even though they're back to back French Open champions they're still ranked only like seventeenth and eighteenth together in doubles. Their new team, they are unheralded team. One is twenty six one is thirty and they're having success as a doubles pairing we're seeing in the last. Year or two quite a few unheralded doubles teams having success. This could be. I hope the start of a boon for doubles where if you don't make singles or doubles earlier on in your career, you can still have double success later on now onto the et Cetera 's, which is the more messy part of the episode. Generally, let's be messy right away. But Robert tweeted a couple of days ago. Shut out to the one guy enjoy of its box not even pretending to wear the mask and you see a picture of Djokovic box and the guy in the front row he's not wearing the mask and just over his left. Is Yelling. Jovovich. Who has her mass kind of pulled down Yelena joke a bitch thought she was doing a lot with her tweet. When she quotes Ben and says that one quote Unquote Guy. That one guy has exemption from doctors not everything is Kobe related I on the other have less official reason stress-related breathing when watching my husband play. People surrounding us are all tested a negative. This. This from the five G.. Five t queen I mean. You know some feel that she'd dunked on him. Others feel that she's totally full of Shit I mean she's full of Shit. That's indisputable as we know I mean her instagram POPs are flagged and taken down because of fake news. Okay. I it was an interesting piggyback from Neil Harmon the disgraced plagiarist who was chased out of the sport and journalism in general. Because he used his colleagues work unattributed for several years. In the Wimbledon book, there's a a curious thing at play here where the more time passes. I feel the more people forget about just how bad that situation means and higher actually forgot how bad it was. Indeed this is just atrocious what Neil Harmon does, and he takes every opportunity to know to try and make it seem that anybody from any walk of life who has been put upon in some way has been aggrieved in the same way that he will, by Ben. It's certainly not because Neil, agrees with yellow Jovic like it's not about solidarity is just because they have been persecuted by Ben Rothen. And if you go back, you can google this easily. Bent wrote a series of stories for slate detailing the plagiarism charges against Neil he even he interviewed Neil Harmon four, the pieces like neal was cooperating with the story and said, he was shocked and he he didn't do it on purpose and whatever. But ever since then it's been a vendetta against personally. And it's really because you broken this brotherhood of of journalism. You've you've gone against one of your own even if you're right and there's a lot of industries have this sort of brotherhood Omerta mentality and in Tennessee have this battle between old school media, a new school media that is very real. If if you've ever been in a tennis pressroom, you know you can see it's palpable. If not overt the way some of these old school folks treat folks who come up from blogging from podcast from whatever. So like Neil Harmon have several seats for emperor just stared tennis you're gone stay on anyway. So the Hawkeye thing will not go away. They were talking about during the final today it's just nonstop and the thing is the we're actually getting closer to his spot. Where electronic line calling can be a reality on clay we talked about it in a little bit on our last episode, and we referenced the thing called Fox ten where it's called Foxton real bounce and it's an alternative technology to Hawkeye. Has already been approved for use or are testing on clay. It was used in Rio in two thousand nineteen. This year would have been in Madrid..

"Welcome to another episode of by His grace today I have with me Neil Harmon who is the CEO of bid angel a Neil Welcome to the by His grace podcast. Thank you for having me on misty it's good to hear. So would you tell the listeners about then angel? So vigil helps you make entertainment good for your own home. And we do this in two ways. One is that you can connect your net flicks and your Amazon prime account and other streaming accounts to vote angel, and then you can skip over things that you find objectionable in the content. So. For example, you could watch stranger things on net flicks without. The language or some people even. Love Jack Ryan without some of the was without the nudity or. Some of the Gore. But they like the history. So it allows you to customize what you watch very easily. The second thing that we do is we take all the skipped choices of the families that use our service and we share them with craters with people who make content like. The comedians who have performed on drive are comedy. And they take this information and then they tailor their performances or their Taylor what they make to the audience and and we make better content that way so. We hope you make entertainment good for your own home. Yeah. That's excellent. Because I know there's a lot of shows that I have friends. That watch that I would never watch because of the nudity or the violence or the whatever, and so that is great because as a as a parent in when my boys were young, we watched a lot.

"For example you could watch stranger things and you could skip the the the language that you don't repeated in your home where you could watch Some People Watch game of thrones and they cut out all the nudity There's everything under the sun that you can watch their from your net flicks there your Amazon prime account but the best part of it angel is we take the decisions that we that people make and we and we share them with with Comedians and and content creators and then they better content. So we've been launching our own original content for example Dr are comedy and the Chosen TV series And this content has been super well received well and and that's just it now you've got an. I heard I have not seen the drive. Our comedy yet But I've had several friends of mine. Send me links to bits and pieces to see. I need to make my kids. Sit Down with me. And we're we're desperate for additional entertainment beyond the stuff that's out there and is so now right now you guys are are if it's if I'm understanding right you're opening the door up so people can come in and check out the content and not have to worry about any long-term commitments. That's correct. No credit card required. All you need to do is agree to practice social distancing and give bigger hugs when this is all over and you can use it angel within minutes for free he mean. I'm going to have to actually hug my kids now soon. What was the genesis of this and by the way just so you know the the friend who introduced me to video angel is a huge game of thrones fan and couldn't bring himself to watch it and discovered he could watch it through angel and Take care of all all the qualms he had with it. But what what was the genesis of this Angel or social distancing okay. So vigil was started by four brothers and we all had young children and we love great storytelling and we asked ourselves. I wonder if other people are this way and we did a survey and found out that about half of American parents would wanNA skip stuff that they find objectionable in their own homes in popular movies and TV and when we thought about this and we thought well shoot. There's a group of people that are like us that we can go. Help solve this problem. And if we do that we could also produce great content for those people and that we had this idea starting about two thousand twelve. We started the company in late. Two thousand thirteen. And we've been at it for the last seven years and Boy has been a ride. You will it has been in fact a number of Of outlets have come after you guys for daring to make content watchable by families who object to some of the stuff in popular culture right now. What is the status on on the various lawsuits and issues? That you guys have had to do with us as people have attacked. Joel you bet. So it's a great question so we've been through. I think we're on integration number six of our system because iterations one two and three all got shut down in one way or another by the studio system and iteration for We figured out. But then and and we and we communicated exactly what we were doing with the studios and and they didn't they didn't. They didn't have any complaints but a year later when we were growing they they sued US and And It was the biggest media company in the world. It was Disney that was leading the lawsuit so There were Disney Warner brothers. Basically the ones that are suing the most they offer the most family friendly content and When they initially sued us I thought what why in the world is. Disney's doing I felt like the most likely to To like they share the same audience of people that we that we're serving right but then it occurred to me. Well wait a second. Maybe you know. Maybe that that's the reason it's Disney is because they don't want other content they don't want the other content that produced by the other studios competing with their own content that is deemed worthy of family so We don't know why but we fought a lot. We fought a long battle. The District Court Los Angeles sided with Disney And and We had What we felt like it was a terribly unjust trial. We were we were. We were find on a level that that according to the studios has never happened before Sixty two million dollars and and we had to file bankruptcy. But what was interesting. Is that our service has been so well received that the trustee in bankruptcy process has recommended to the bankruptcy court that that we now leave bankruptcy and we pay off the entire sixty two million in full now. We hope we never have to do that. We hope we get to appeal and and we get overturned that unjust ruling. But we're doing really well. We're going to survive this and and Disney didn't put us out of business so so now we're out there and we're trying to serve families that is that that's so terrific to hear because I I know so many people who they wouldn't even engage with popular culture without vid Angel Right now because there's just so much out there that isn't appropriate and there's so much good storytelling out there in so many people who feel like they can't tell the good story without adding all the stuff that isn't necessary to the stories in and you guys do such a good job of being able to make it accessible to frankly faith families that aren't going to otherwise engage with that stuff that's right just be able to skip that one thing that just you're just like why didn't they have to stick that in there and you can just get over it and just like you would with your remote controller or with your TV except this is a preprogrammed remote so Yeah it's we love the service in our families and we're glad it's been received by family a family throughout the throughout that's fantastic so now it's VIP Angel Dot Com. The website and people can go right now and and they don't even have to have a credit card just promised to to hug their kids and keep socially distanced away from people. That's right that's right and you can. You can go to Angel Dot Com the Angel Dot com or you can just search on your APP STORE. Google play or the apple APP store and you can download the APP. Be Watching the minutes. That's fantastic you'll listen. Thank you so much for stopping by I knew we had to reschedule twice because all sorts of difficulties on our end. But I'm I'm glad you're able to come with us because again. I got way too many people I can think of. Who are just. They won't watch popular culture without Angel and I'm glad you guys came up with the idea. Thank you for helping. Get the word out eric. We really appreciate it absolutely that's Neil harmon. Ceo of vigil and again. If you don't understand what vigil is you can set filters on the content so for example. I became a game of thrones fan by accident I had tried to watch. Game of thrones twice and could not get past the opening episode from the violence. I I'm just I'm more willing to I. Can I can see a sex scene in a movie and it doesn't faze me as much as blood going everywhere and beheadings and stuff and I could not watch it but the very first time I was trying to watch it was on an airplane and I bought it off of I tunes the first season and get everybody loved it so much by the season. I'm going to love it too. I get the first episode and then I became mindful that there was a kid sitting behind me diagonally from me and he could see my ipad screen and there was a beheading. And just like I'm not GonNa Watch this in case the kid and then the next time. I tried it a while went by. I decided I'd try to get everybody's talking about it season. Four or five is coming out and I just I couldn't get through it again and then In the run-up to season six was in the hospital was there for about two weeks and HBO. The run to the season was show. In the game of thrones marathon and I was up late. Couldn't sleep watching adult swim and young guy who's a nurse comes in is like what are you doing? I was. I'm in the cardiac ward and I'm by probably thirty or forty years. The youngest person in there. And he's like we're watching game with rollins. He took the remote from me and it was somewhere in season two. He brought me up to speed and I became hooked. It was such a well done. Show it really really was wilder show but There's a lot there's there's vulgarity. Their their sex. There's a lot of islands and so you can watch it through angel and it will cut all that stuff out very much like so when I grew up in Dubai in Dubai Tv shows would sometimes Dallas for example. When I was a kid a young kid living in Dubai they showed Dallas and it was always a season behind the United States so We would see who shot. Jr and then come home and it's a season beyond Who Shot Jr and so the so in Dubai they would cut out all the violence and in even kissing was cut out. So you're forty minutes show. I mean an American an hour long American drama is really about forty minutes long because there are twenty minutes of commercials in there a little bit more now and in Dubai. You didn't show commercials during the show. You only showed the show and so the show would be forty minutes and then you would have the commercial swell. They would cut out all the and they'd cut out all the violence so the show would actually some nights when only be twenty minutes long they give everything and that was with a lot of these shows they just cut it all out. And then you use the funniest thing was the news. They'd have a local news at eight o'clock and they'd have a world news at ten o'clock in the eight o'clock I kid you not some nights the anchor would come on. She has this this very nice British lady and she would come on and she would say good evening. There is no local news tonight..

"neil harmon" Discussed on Your Online Coffee Break

"Neil thank you so much for joining me today. Really appreciate it. Thank you checks for having me on hold my pleasure now. I understand you and your brother. Jeff created angel in two thousand fourteen. I was just wondering. Can you tell us more about what it is? And how it came about so angel was started by four brothers. We all have young children and we wanted this product for ourselves. And we've we've since defined what our wires meaning the reason that we exist right and that's to help you make entertainment good for your home so that could be different for my home than it is for your home right Jack so Or for some other neighbor for some from Chicago or someone from San Francisco. Everyone's home unique and we achieve our mission in two ways. First we allow you to take popular content from today. Tv series and movies and then skip staffed. You find inappropriate for your home whether that's language. Nudity bullying racial slurs. Whatever it is that's important to you. You can skip over it if you choose in your own home. As and the second reason the second thing that we do is we make content. That is our audience wants to consume and that they want to experience in their home. So that's what angel is and that's why we started and we love it and And we love having for our families while I love it to kneel one thing that I'm really impressed about two is obviously. These are trying times right now and dangerous doing some incredibly wonderful things. I understand you're offering your streaming services free for a period of time for those families stuck at home can tell us a little bit more about that. You Bet so if you go to dot com or if you download the APP on the apple APP store or Google. Play right now. And you agree to practice social distancing and he gets bigger hugs when this is all over. I love that. Yes then Then you can use it for free without any credit card with no obligation and you could be watching it and seconds Right now see. That is just brilliant. I and I have to say I cracked up when I went to the site. And you know you see of course no credit card required which is a great thing for those. They're worried about that. And of course must degree to social distancing. You're like okay. I can agree that and then in quotes you'll have the end bigger. Hugs when this is all over so I think I think everyone is got any bigger hugs when this is all over for sure especially extroverts that are probably going crazy right now and getting stuck at home now. I you mentioned this and I love this I love. Your APP. Provides the ability to skip as you said the objectional content on Netflix and Amazon. And how the filters can be customized. I was wondering if you can just tell us a little bit more about that. You Bet one of one of my favorite shows is Cinderella man which is timely show for right now because that dealt with the Great Depression and I love this story and I love the the message behind that show but there are things that the coach says that I don't kids repeating yes and so and so we skip that stuff and then I'm able to share the rick the greatest messages in that show. There's this message of this kid who steals the Salami and his dad takes him back store and then and then tells him. You know we don't do that and it's just one of those moments. That is a priceless opportunity to talk to children and But we don't want our kids repeating some of the coaches language and so that's how we can all enjoy that film together as a family other families will use it for you. Know PEOPLE WHO WANNA watch game of thrones and they WANNA cut out the nudity or the sexual violence and and And then we have people who watch it because they are easily triggered or they had ptsd or whatever the the The need this gives you the power to choose what you want to skip over for. Your own home. Says incredible and not to lighten up or anything. But I'm a huge star wars fan and I have to admit I cracked up when I looked at the filter and I believe there was he. George or binks. Does that really work? Is that a joke. I haven't tried that yet. Well it hasn't worked Business Disney's not our biggest fan so so we but it has worked in the past. That filter came out of my son. Wanted to watch the for the well star wars one two and three which is the second star wars movies out and so I went back and watched him with him and I just had the grit my teeth through the entire thing he and I went to work and I said I saw a comment from some customer That's talked about jar jar. Banks I said need a jerk anyway so we made one and it and it was a lot of fun so we made a video about it. So you're free to check out the video. Oh excellent I'll definitely check it out. Encourage my audience. Check that as well. Now let's talk about the amazing content available invade angel one of my favorites That you have the award winning series that shows in about the life of Jesus and his disciples for those of you. Who might not be familiar about that? Can you tell us a little bit more about that series? You Bet so. The chosen is our very first original dramatic TV series and we got into content. We thought can we compete with Hollywood? Who makes such amazing content and we learned when we started our comedy series. Drive our comedy which you interviewed Jeffrey about earlier. Yes that we could compete with the big studios but when we started the chills and we said can we compete on a big expensive TV series. Now we didn't know and and we also didn't have the funding that Hollywood does. And so we crowd funded this with the audience in nineteen thousand people invested eleven million dollars to make this this first season and the response chuck has been beyond what we could have imagined. It is rated incredible. Nine point nine star or nine point nine out of ten on. Imdb with over hundred reviewers it. Will it won the movie guide Hallmark Award for the equivalent of best actor? And I can watch that series over and over and over again it's it's so impossibly fresh and faithful. Yeah it's funny. You talked about competing with Hollywood and to me. There is no competition anymore because the chosen is just that good. You said nine point nine. I said only nine point nine I series I tell people it's nine point nine. They're like yeah. Yeah you guys just totally you know. You're you're reading the numbers and we're like we don't know why it doesn't drop when the what are the haters going to be able to pull it down but It's it is it. Is that good. And it is a Mush Watch. Show it really is we. Were actually fortunate to interview. Director Dallas Jenkins Just a few a couple months ago as well so courage our audience to check out that interview as well. Now obviously the chosen is wonderful. We love that You mentioned my view with Jeff about Dr are comedy. I love drummer comedy. But again for those who. I don't know been living in a tunnel or something like that. Tell us about Dr Comedy and the success of that one. You Bet so when we started the company we first started with the filtering concept. But we wanted to get to original content and drive. Our was our first foray into original content and the premise was. Let's let the creators the the Comedians perform however they choose but let's give him the information from the audience of what they are skipping right so we have all this data that says families don't WanNa hear this or they don't WanNa watch that or they don't want you to talk about X. Y. Z. In their home and so now the comedian looks at that information and then what we do is we signed an agreement with them where they get bonuses because the audience skips them less nice and because there is a broader audience and and so the comedians come in and we tell them this and the comedians bend over backwards to to serve the audience and and our premise was is if you can take funny comedians and then you can help them connect to the audience in a way that they can understand the audience that the market size will be bigger than just taking a comedian who is trying to push the edges.

"Great on. No Invidia angel for while. I really thought they already overcame all this, and they're, they're arrangement would net flicks to go through Netflix. And Amazon was the way that their company could work, vintage, Liz is a company, if you're not familiar, that allows you to edit the F word or sex, scenes, out of a movie if you want to. Or Jeffey says the movies he likes to watch get knocked down to about thirty seconds worth of material after that. Yes. Ten right. Well earlier this week, a California jury ordered the Utah based video angel to pay a whopping sixty two point four million dollars in damages to four Hollywood studios. There's, there's no damage done to these Hollywood studios. What kind of madness is this? That's unbelievable. During a phone interview with faith wire, I wonder if Dan Andrews did that interview. The, the CEO of video angel. Neil harmon. Said that the juris decision is wrong, considering we made the studios money, right? He later noted video angel never intentionally violated the law. He argued consistently that video angel was well, within the purview of the family movie act, which allows for movie filtering during playback. Just I mean I don't understand the deal with the studios on this anyway, for people who wouldn't see your movie at all k-, you wouldn't get any money at all. Because I wouldn't watch these, these are rated movies at all right. But now I have and because I can edit them. And so you are making that money and I am seeing your stupid movie. I don't understand how expanding a movies audience reach is harming the created said movie to the tune of sixty two million dollars. That's ridiculous. That's asinine. And for these studios. No, I must have the Ford in. Got to have the F word heard by everyone in your family or I'm I. I wanna sue your butt into the middle of next week. Well, okay. But why because that f word that's all about my art, and my integrity. You've compromised the integrity. If I can't say mother f ING in my movie. Oh, okay. So unless we hear that word. That is strange weird. Wow. Unless I see snoop in your movie like I got to see this actress tinker cert- off or you're completely unhappy with the fact that I'm watching your movie. Okay. I don't understand it. I really don't either except my art as is that's the way I created it. And that's the way you must see it. Wow. So. Disney Lucasfilm's Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Brothers all sued video angel. And they've been suing him since two thousand sixteen and again I thought this was settled already, but I guess not following the Suda preliminary injunction was issued. Forcing video angel to stop streaming movies filtered from DVD's,.
