Angel continues to use its innovative crowdfunding model—in combination with funding from venture capital firms—to tell stories that amplify light, providing a viable family-friendly alternative to Hollywood. 

“We’re thrilled at the caliber of content that the Angel Studios investors selected for crowdfunding this year, validating our thesis that the crowd will make better decisions than a few executives. The success of The ChosenTuttle Twins, and Dry Bar Comedy is now leading to incredible new series like Luso and movies like David, totalling in production budgets of over $100 million,” said Neal Harmon, Angel Studios CEO. “Angel went from the verge of bankruptcy to $123 million in revenue in one year. This success is fueled by the global popularity of shows funded by 50,000 Angel investors, everyday people who have united together to make the media they want to see in the world.”
