Enderby Entertainment pandemic photo Zero contact (previously called 92) with Anthony Hopkins (The father) will premiere on the new NFT Vuele platform later this summer, possibly the first time that a feature film, rather than, say, a basketball highlight clip, has been offered for sale as a so-called non-fungible token.
Vuele, which stands for being a direct-to-consumer NFT display and distribution platform, was formed last month amidst a crypto-NFT craze. It will allow users to buy exclusive limited edition movies and collector’s content to watch, collect, sell and trade on the platform, which is a partnership between fintech firm CurrencyWorks and producer Enderby Entertainment. People can pay for the movie with cryptocurrencies or normal credit cards.

Produced in 17 different territories completely virtually during the 2020 global pandemic, Zero contact, Cam Annon’s script follows five characters from around the world connected only by their devotion to the tech titan Finley Hart (Hopkins). They are forced to work together to end Hart’s secret invention, a machine that is the solution to humanity’s problems or the end of life on earth. Veronica Ferres, Aleks Paunovic, Lilly Krug, TJ Kayama, and Martin Sternmark also star.
“Everything about this movie is unconventional, from the way we shot it with Zoom and remote production, to its distribution,” said Enderby producer / director Rick Dugdale. He said that Vuele will have four or five “drops” of Zero contact with the former probably late July-early August. They will include the movie, plus extras yet to be determined that would vary from one token to another to create different price points. The idea is to develop a market for NFTs, which are basically digital assets placed on an encrypted blockchain with unique serial numbers.
“It creates a shortage of film copies and protects against piracy,” Dugdale said.
The NFTs stood out in March when artist Beeple sold a collage at Christie’s for $ 69 million as NFT. Since then, dozens of NFT platforms have been launched for fine arts, sports, music, games and entertainment. By some accounts, the NFT market has cooled a bit since then, but it’s still significant (sales were $ 2.47 billion in the first half of 2021, according to data from DappRadar that tracks the industry, and new entrants continue to emerge. .
The NFT Chronicle platform recently hired Universal Pictures’ former director of global digital marketing, Doug Neil, as director of marketing and branding.
Fly is basically an experiment that aims to create a new source of income for the industry. “We said, ‘It could be a new platform, let’s take a chance and do it with our own movie,'” Dugdale said.
