Amadeus Style, a Blockchain Media House, is requesting $5000 worth of FOX (using the Uniswap price as of the date/time this proposal is approved.) or $5000 USDC to complete a series of videos from ETHDenver 2022. (decision of paying in USDC or FOX will be up to the TMDC (treasury management & diversification committee.)
During ETHDenver 2022, Amadeus Style was contracted by ShapeShift to film and edit a considerable amount of videos. These were delivered, paid for, and were very well received by the team and community. Our original proposal (SPC 82) had majority support (88%) but didn’t pass quorum so we wanted to bring it back and this time accept FOX or USDC.

However, there is a considerable amount of amazing footage gathered at ETHDenver that was outside of the scope of the original contract paid for by Marketing and Growth. This proposal is simply to finish editing the rest of this great footage into usable stories and to deliver these assets to ShapeShift. Note that although these are from ETHDenver, the content and stories resonate well outside of the event itself. These are all very usable through the next 6 months and will be a valuable asset for marketing.
Dynamic and engaging video content can be very expensive to produce. Cameras, lighting, audio, logging footage, editing, graphics, etc., are all very costly services to hire out. Currently, we’ve already edited a few videos that were outside of the scope of our last project and we’ve outlined all of the videos that we can create from the remaining footage. Hiring out a new crew to create these videos from scratch could easily cost 5 times the proposed amount. An example of work to be delivered can be seen here: Decentralization for ShapeShift’s Future, to give the community a clear look of the value we’re aiming to bring ShapeShift.
Completing these videos will provide ShapeShift with a myriad of content to help build the growing YouTube channel and provide quality content for social media. The videos selected to edit are based on ShapeShift’s current marketing and communication goals.
Amadeus Style will edit and deliver 12 YouTube videos and 12 social media videos to the Creative Services squad, to be used in conjunction with Marketing and Growth to promote the DAO with video content. Files will be organized into Google Drive folders for delivery. A master doc with notes will be provided for getting the content published.

The only real drawback of passing this proposal is spending money. We think a bigger drawback would be letting this extra footage go unused and spending more later to recreate it. All of this content should be rocket fuel for ShapeShift’s marketing.
- For - Allocate 60,000 $FOX (approx $5000 USDC) or $5000 USDC to complete and deliver 24 videos.
