A company, or a website, where you can browse the movies in production or pre-production, and invest small sums of money in them. Say I want to invest $100 in the next Star Trek movie, (they all seem to make a profit or they wouldn't keep making them)
I would go to the website and choose the film,
pay online by creditcard, and then after it's released wait for a cheque. This is more direct than buying shares in studios, where you have no say in what films get made.
You could even have online portfolios so you can track the films you invested in, and how well they are doing.
