GB Pictures Project
GB Pictures is a separate non profit company, not a a part of New Atlantis, although we were a partner in establishing it, provided sponsorship and are still involved in its development.
GB Pictures came out of the Money Tree Project and meets the needs of many. For the artists and photographers it provides a way to exhibit and sell their art, for collectors a means to by the best quality available at no more tan others charge for inferior work, and for those wishing to create an income or produce funding for a project from buying a home to establishing a business it provides a way to make a lot of money in an enjoyable way.
The GB Pictures projects is larger than GB Pictures alone and is a consortium of approaching 30 organisations and businesses, working together to each meet their own objectives but to also promote a common objective within GB pictures. It also provides a good example of the New Economic model in action with franchises, commissioned service providers, joint ventures and special clubs of commission earning members. Its further growth is built around these new economy methods.
GB Pictures has 7 brands of art, 4 types of franchises and an exhibition club. The franchises are also marketed by another franchise as well and the club is also marketed by both the external franchise and club that area part of thr money tree project. The franchises are unusual in that they have no franchise fees.
the art production is technically ahead of others with chipping to avoid forgery, archival materials and museum glass being routinely used and a brand that is based ion clever at, art with technology built in.
Publishing and marketing limited edition art is the nearest thing to being legally able to print money. Having said this, the existing market is unorganised, many of the products are poor and there are technical problems. The GB Pictures project has brought together organisations and companies and over come all of the problems producing a far higher quality product range, across a number of brands. This is to be marketed by a franchise network. GB Pictures the organisation is a non profit company so uniquely have franchises that have no franchise fees. By a combination of commissioning, overrides and sponsorship by brands this project has become a reality. GB Pictures as a project has allowed a large number of different profit generating opportunities to develop from commissioning roles, through marketing commissions to franchises. It means that a number of opportunities are now available that allow additional incomes to be produced, allowing clubs to show an ideal solution as well as covering the points to consider when selecting a suitable income stream. The GB Pictures Project provides a great example of what can be achieved.
