The Leaderboard tracks our community’s financial and professional contributions to development.
It starts with a hero
Each contribution is rewarded with hero points. Points entitle you to a slice of the pie from the sale of the franchise. Scroll down to learn more.
Why ‘hero’ points?
There’s an old saying in entertainment, ‘It starts with a hero.’
You become one of the heroes of Sentient when you sponsor development or provide your professional services to help realise the work.
Sale of the franchise
This is a global franchise.
Yes, our teams will create content to sell into their own markets however the ultimate business objective is to sell the Sentient franchise to a U.S. production house or network for remake.
The sale of the Rights entitles the buyer to to recreate the work in the U.S and distribute it globally in the same way that the Israel based production of ‘Prisoners of war’ was sold as a franchise to the US and recreated as ‘Homeland’.
The profits realised from the sale of the Rights to Sentient will be distributed to:
- The Development Team and Sponsors via the Leaderboard
- Our Investors via a Production and Investment Agreement
- Presence Global Entertainment
Who is eligible?
To be eligible to receive a disbursement from the sale of the franchise, team members will have to meet the following criteria:
- Be a member of the Sentient.tv development site
- Have over 2000 points
- Be in the top 50 ranked members
- Have contributed either financially or by recognised service* to the development of the project to a value of no less than 2000 points
*Recognised service is demonstrated by a team member’s Campaign/Award Stamps.
*Current or former Shareholders in the Presence Group do not have to meet the eligibility requirements to receive disbursement from the sale of the franchise.
Terms and Conditions
The Leaderboard page will serve as a proxy, shortform contract for the team until our legal team creates a ‘Terms and Conditions’ Agreement for entitlements and the site.
How do I earn points?
You earn points when:
- You sponsor the work either as a business or an individual
- You act as an Executive Producer to introduce new Sponsors or Investors
- You are engaged to develop the Work and your contribution is unpaid
- You participate within the community, post on or promote the site and the Work
Points versus payment
Fees for development, pre-prod, production, post and ancillary services rendered are negotiated per job. Points for these services will be added manually but then discounted where the member is paid a fee.
In other words, if you’re paid 100% of the negotiated rate for the service you perform, you do not receive any points in the Work. If you receive 80% of the fee, the unpaid balance is added to your points in the work at a rate of one point per unpaid dollar.

Your points and value summary
The, ‘Top 250 members’ table, tracks the community’s contributions and tabulates the points you accrue throughout development.
Profits will be split three ways between the Production Investors, the Development Community, (including our Sponsors), and Presence Global Entertainment.
The Sale of Franchise Bonus is based on an equal third representing an estimated one million Australian dollars.
The, ‘Sale of Franchise Bonus – Points and value summary’, does not constitute an offer to sell equity in Presence Global Entertainment or any other entity associated with the project.
All estimates are speculation. There are no guarantees. As a community, we must focus our talents on achieving excellence at what we do then take that to the market.
