GET A PIECE OF LEGION M ENTERTAINMENT
We founded Legion M because we saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an entertainment company OWNED by fans.
Why? Because no matter where you sit in the value chain, a built-in audience can be one of the most valuable assets in entertainment. By uniting fans as shareholders, we’re attempting to create a company with a built-in audience for every project it makes.
Legion M’s logo is the Roman numeral for 1 million. That's because our long-term goal is to unite 1 million fans as shareholders of the company. Our mission is to create a massive grassroots audience — a Legion of fans — that we believe could make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.
Co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison are Emmy-winning serial entrepreneurs and digital pioneers. In 1999, the duo (along with one other cofounder) started MobiTV, the first company in the U.S. to launch live streaming television on mobile phones. From 2003 to 2009, the trio grew the company into a worldwide leader in streaming media with 300+ employees, more than $100 million of VC investment, and an Emmy Award for innovation in television.
In addition, Legion M has attracted a top-tier advisory board that includes legendary actor William Shatner, billion-dollar producer Dean Devlin, author/entrepreneur Eric Ries (author of “The Lean Startup"), and current/former executives from Netflix, Sony, Lucasfilm, Epic Games, and MGM.
HOW WE MAKE MONEY
Like many early stage companies, Legion M is not focused on short-term revenue, but on building what we believe will become long-term competitive advantages for the company. We're willing to sacrifice short-term revenue for long-term strategic gain because we know the bets we make as a Legion of 35,000 pale in comparison to the bets we'll be able to make as a Legion of 1,000,000.
That said, Legion M has already demonstrated an ability to generate revenue from a diverse array of both traditional and non-traditional revenue streams, including:
Since Legion M was founded in 2016, the company has successfully closed 8 rounds of fundraising and built one of the largest shareholder communities in JOBS Act history.
Since Legion M was founded in 2016, we’ve developed a slate of projects diversified across genre, medium, business model, and risk profile. We’ve demonstrated an ability to work with top tier partners, from billion-dollar producers like Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate, Leverage, The Librarians) and Michael Uslan (Batman, The Dark Knight, Joker) to renowned creators like Stan Lee (creator of the Marvel Universe) and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats) and top-shelf distribution partners including NEON (Parasite, I Tonya), Bleecker Street (The Assistant, Beasts of No Nation), Searchlight (JoJo Rabbit, The Shape of Water), SpectreVision (No Man of God, Color out of Space) and Nederlander Worldwide Productions (Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King).
Entertainment can be extremely lucrative, but is also unpredictable. Consumer trends, technologies, and distribution models are constantly changing. Movies and TV shows are expensive bets, with budgets that can reach the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. Every project has potential to be a breakout hit...but even the biggest names in the business sometimes strike out.
How can you improve your odds of success?
While technologies and trends will come and go, there’s been one constant in entertainment since the earliest days of silent film: the importance of the audience. It's the audience (or lack thereof) that determines success or failure, and the audience that’s responsible for every penny in ticket sales, subscription fees, and advertising revenue.
That's why a company owned by fans is such a powerful idea. When we pool our collective power, we have potential to:
We believe that by harnessing the power of fans, Legion M can create sustainable long-term competitive advantages that could potentially make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.
Opening the gates of hollywood
Most companies view investors simply as a source of capital. For Legion M, they are the foundation of our business. We are a community as well as a corporation, and our job is to create value for this community with things like:
The wonderful thing about a fan-owned company is that financial ROI and fun are not necessarily mutually exclusive. The more engaged and excited our audience is, the more buzz and value we can create for the project, which in turn increases the project’s chances of success to the benefit of the company and all its shareholders.
Legion M is the first entertainment company built to be owned by fans. Enabled by disruptive new securities laws, we're giving you a seat at the table -- and a stake in the outcome -- as we unite fans to shape the future of Film and Television!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
