HSAH# – The first crypto funded TV series
21Million Productions Ltd is a crypto funded TV production company making a TV Mini Series that is set against a backdrop of the existential risk of Artificial Intelligence and the race for AI supremacy between USA and China.
“Artificial intelligence is the biggest risk we face as a civilisation and needs to be checked as soon as possible…”
In August we filmed a trailer episode as a short film in Shoreditch, London that will be shown to fans and investors in November 2019 – the official launch.
The short film called HSAH# sees Josh and his team thrust onto an International stage as everyone wants what they have discovered, that has devastating consequences for them all. A Tech Thriller, as we begin the story for Season 1 written by Nick.
Filmed in partneship with Get Shorty Entertainment Ltd, an award winning short film maker, who shot Skid Row Marathon, we were also fortunate to have Lorenzo Levrini, a BAFTA winning director of photography and amazing cast of fine actors…
Introducing a new TV Series funded by crypto…
Many Film and TV projects struggle to raise funding. 21Million were able to raised its initial capital via a token sale.
This was completed in the summer of 2017 delivering sufficient resources to write the story and make a trailer episode.
The pilot episode has been filmed as a short film. The short film is our product called HSAH#
The teaser is below…
The cinema release is planned for December 2019, where the content will be Live Streamed to a global audience on the night.
The project includes a number of key assets:
A trailer short film, a full story for Season 1 and two episodes ready for scripting and production planning.
Josh a computer geek makes a discovery that advances computer science 30 years, a basilisk that has deadly consequences for everyone that knows. But Josh holds far deeper secrets and is working on something that may just save humankind from itself…

Josh is concerned the AI threat to humanity is not being addressed, and he has answers that will help humankind tip the balance.

The journey so far…
The project has come a long way since its inception and Initial Coin Offering (“ICO”) in 2017 that delivered seed capital to be able to write the story and make a trailer pilot episode.
The project was rebooted in 2018 with an entirely new story and script, surviving the ‘crypto-winter’ and various attacks from parts of the community led by an ex-colleague. The first project not building software, instead had a vision to make a TV show. The pilot episode acts as the Minimum Viable Product (“MVP”) and the team will be raising further rounds of capital to make Season 1.
The story of 21Million Project is noteworthy, one of the few projects that has kept on course despite efforts by some to see it fail…
The official ‘teaser’ will be shown in London at a major event…
“I decided to re-write the story from its original path. Firstly the releative advancements in Quantum Computing and AI are a concern, and I wanted to make a prequel as short film that introduces key concepts to viewers they will need to pay attention to, as AI driven by Big Tech firms becomes more engrained in our lives – opening the door for humankind to be placed on the back foot ” explains Nick Ayton
