spk_1: you can see that this type of product is very exciting for us the idea of a community based and of seasons them i'm sell ten thousand memberships if you will and get a whole bunch of cool stuff on and we think that plays to our strength we can program the cool stuff part if you're interested in
spk_2: animation graphic design who better and somebody like an any francisco to to do master classes with to program around imagine if we did social screen with any of the movie the neocons worked on and off to but i soon what he did for them from them the story decisions imagine sweepstakes comprises a result and you know all expense paid trip to comicon what were we have teams of people at every summer
spk_1: you can imagine we go to other verticals whether it's music movies television sports what we can do were already at the grammys the emmys the oscars the superbowl
spk_2: i think we think of be on a t business as community based on and i think if you talk to people on the inside i'm talking the block james the competitive marketplace is like cetera
spk_1: how long pure art for art's sake
spk_2: will last as an open question but the few everyone agrees with the future of in appease is in utility
spk_1: at the end of t allows you to do something or receive something and i think that's exactly why we built what we've built and where we just quite frankly feel we have tremendous advantages and entertainment related and a t community we have access two and can program better than anybody and so that's what we're excited to roll out to the market and along the way by the way our arch gonna look really really cool cause we'd have anthony and so
spk_5: that's that's all we're launching today and and then the question after this initial launch will be the frequency and in the him and the speed that we can get the other verticals up and running
spk_2: birds as we get into the first half next year all the major verticals we would have wanted we will have one to have launched
spk_1: we're we're in enough for the long haul but we're excited to start you to the verticals that we already have expertise and
spk_2: is it reasonable to think that that the and have t product ship should be a a high margin product term to the i mean it seems that way to make that to could you explain it
spk_1: sure and if i could you know
spk_2: those are trying to say in our numbers is really is illustrated of will work we hope is considered a better mouse trap by the market on a real the optionality and a huge catalyst in and iffy is right i i would argue that and appease the dolphin represent the potential upside or more have many of the highest return
spk_7: investment out there from biotech or wherever else if they work well we feel our catalysis as good as anybody elses
spk_2: but were profitable along the way we've been building this technology in our ability to offer that product to market i'm an have any the deposited in the second and third quarter so
spk_1: therefore that a pretty much tell you what the margin can be on you know obviously people that are very steep numerous calls laypeople people see the quick math ten thousand avatars a two allergy to the two million dollar product and you're you're starting a community it's and so that means you can engage with our community every week
spk_2: a daily hit the had our early on social media but the and and as we know this product with designed to be in a van most i see an event see even have more drops more contests and sweepstakes and and that's what allows you to to build and sustain this community that will help you to drop or so you might have another two billion dollar product in a for six months from now an eccentric cetera so it it scales very quickly
spk_1: and and then of course once we have multiple verticals going imagine a product in music one in film one in sports one and charity one and cullen airy one in gaming in of right now work that that the sex and you start cross selling with each other so you cross pollinate your your communities and of course you're gonna more than one community and inside each article on a music itself you know have one music community you'll have multiple so for different types of music right so it's an exciting world for us and we needed
spk_8: we needed the robustness
spk_1: of i just coined the term not sure other fcx and their wallet to allow for both the acceptance a credit cards
spk_2: the speed
spk_9: the strength of being able to build on the block chain for those that volume of of offering globally
spk_2: so some of our programs including anthony's around appeal to an international audience very much the aliens no no national boundaries
spk_5: so on i've been exciting a and exciting day and i think it it opens a glimpse to those are interesting dolphin for our and of t capabilities
spk_1: to really get a sense of what we what we can accomplish and just to confirm that i understand that and have t market right you have the potential is a true that you have the potential the get recurring revenue if you're the creator of an and as t because every time there's a secondary sale kicking can you get saddam up a piece of that yeah thank you inside and go back to previous gotcha answer in three parts but the new question that on yeah it's a bit of sorry the sorry for myself i met at the very high margin business because
spk_2: i especially xl dailies is as as an internal dolphin developed property can we own hundred percent of it and
spk_1: it's exciting for us to launch with that and a show our creative chops a why we took the time to build an entire story line around it there's a there's a saga hear that that fans are gonna want to be a part of in it and imagine not receiving issue number one at one of the classic dc or marvel comics right yeah if you're a collector your own what op episode on an exciting for us as i mean by
spk_2: peter and of t drops but secondly you know yes we we have recurring potential perjury revenue and couple was one it or the future dropped to the same community
spk_1: we haven't decided on the number of episodes of exiled aliens but whatever number it might be
spk_5: ill as were refining that now yeah those are that's that's revenue you can go to the same community and and or give them though added value along the way and secondly each an empty that we sell if it resells in the open market because new people to be part community or certain of these entities and be very rare and valuable from moment number one fan yes as they resell dolphin keep seven and a half percent of the revenue in perpetuity across all failed thank you as a sizable and look at some a year dolphin one point out this insist that they should all be benefiting from op's post dumb pandemic car recovery and i was wondering if you could find our that give us a sense of kind of what inning we are in the recovery for somebody is i i know for example like live nation
spk_1: a on their third quarter call i think they said that there ah that there's some their tickets for major festivals were selling out an overall sales were up ten percent versus two thousand and nineteen which is pretty amazing so i'm i'm just curious for yourself for yourselves how you thinking about where where you are in the recovery and the potential just just of in some of the
spk_2: there is just getting back to atlanta where you weren't terry added growth has been accomplished without
spk_1: a full recovery week we've had some recovery which is great it's only gonna it's continuing to build momentum but near the the two big areas motion pictures of started come back in theaters which is great i'm obviously we're james bond
spk_2: an earlier might be rather have them or it gets mother's coming up but it's still not where it was it will we expect the motion picture business will be and hope that it will be where it was by second quarter of next year and it's growing up until that point out one it's still out there that hasn't recovered yet or is the restaurant business
spk_1: when there's there's sign of shoot coming up from out of the ground
spk_2: trickling in but that's going to be a nice recovery play force and twenty twenty two i don't know if it's first quarter of it's gonna take till the spring berta that that a meaningful impact our numbers the or the disc revenue growth been accomplished without that business being that
spk_1: and as and and by the way that's really true our sub see i really included that line yes were of seventy percent year over year that's forty one percent organic growth from the existing thought
spk_5: you know that's tremendous growth and we have more to go as we get both a recovery play but then also as long time fans of the stock know yeah we of that companies are getting stronger stronger cross selling with each other have more more joint projects
spk_2: the old joke i made when we at forty two left alone in the group three years ago was you can't process with yourself but now i've yet to six companies and you know this this dolphin one point know is only going to continue to grow because we can cross or and or and recover so it's typically consummate have gone from seven point something that a point something the nine point something and successive quarter of record revenue so that gotta say something somebody and of he social is it's kind of fascinating how i can kind of touch every time i'm pat how do you think of our kind of how that expands next year well it's funny that allen because yeah it am in those who remember from the queue to twenty twenty member the job we made them was at holiday the holidays came early would be social join the group because every one of our market leading pr firms wanted a sister company that was great it in the marketing of her dog
spk_1: in one point out that's the field i'm not gonna under emphasize in a adding be social to the group of what it's meant but for dolphin few pointers to talk about touching everything is i highlighted a meme midnight theater yep they can use be social but for the restaurant the theater
spk_2: influence or marketing campaigns are marketing wanna one today for any restaurant opening as the door
spk_5: tom or hotel opening on but then also
spk_2: within a piece i mean how do you get the word out and online about a new
spk_1: offering and i think the fact that you know a strong influence or margin campaign as we go forward go to twenty twenty two were certainly looking for
spk_2: engaging be social on a come on a consistent basis to help with these watches because you know they bring a lot of the word of mouth and a lot of the cool factor to it so be social so very important strategic part of our company and it couldn't be nicer people are animals cocktail of that with them last thursday it in in los angeles and yeah
spk_1: our work we feel very lucky that the be social since added off the kremlin
spk_2: that's great i'm in terms of deny theater will will there be a point next year where we can get a sense of ah what the contribution today i know it's too early now but yeah i think salads with you know as we get the opening we have a lot of metrics were that we're we're very confident and the in in an investment we think it's gonna do very well and it has a lot of room for growth i get to on a second but lots of metrics i time we speak on the cake all because you know up in a with a theater yet advance ticket sales
spk_1: what will no pre opening numbers will probably know a post opening numbers love a sense
spk_2: of of how does and and i by good or house doing i think the you know that aspect of the variety theaters really cool and i think it may had made the advantages of that may be missed about a casual investor
spk_1: you know a true brought in a a classic would call it broadway theater
spk_2: rides entirely on whichever shows and the theater xavier the richard rodgers and you got hamilton you're feeling great but if you don't you know that's at riskier the it's an all or nothing proposition for variety of theater you have a variety of acts and you have a variety of different audiences that you can bring in because of those acts and something like an intimate hundred sixty seat theater that the lot of seats eat you know to fill that theater and you don't need a villa to be profitable about to to to sell tickets to their it and you're not it's not a heavy left a variety theater gives you a broad broad audience to go after their something literally for everyone over short period of time the challenge of variety theaters he say well why does everybody to a there there's a shortage of them because you eat there's to challenges yet the on a program at yeah build a market all those different well that's where in a one plus one who league was a eleven
spk_1: you what what do we have the ability to do we have the ability to market all those different acts we already do
spk_2: from a wide variety of eucalyptus or far as the biggest and most expansive music pr berman the world that the types of ads that short bar has in the roster they have every genre of music it's not just pop it's rock it's jazz it's are and be it's classic it's everyday and many of those actually played mean i dare say get you know a double when a both marketing and helping the program and so
