The pandemic-set thriller “Lockdown” will be offered as a non-fungus-free token before the theatrical release in November. NFT, which allows proof of originality and authenticity, even for something infinitely reproducible, such as software, digital photos or videos, is taking the world by storm.
Film producer Phoenix Waters Productions and AMM Global have partnered with Marvin Media, a specialty firm, to deliver a limited edition of just five NFTs in October. They will offer NFT to attend the film’s premiere in both Hong Kong and the UK.
“Lockdown” tells the story of an actor (Kevin Leslie) who enters an audition where he is forced by the casting director (to pass a series of exams or someone around him dies.) Starring Gender Berkeley (“The Walking Dead”). “)) And Hong Kong actress Anita Chui (” OCTB “).
Producer and director Bijan Tong said, “Lockdown is a commentary on the events of 2020, including our reliance on technology and the use of innovative methods. “While we deliberately refrained from making a ‘zoom movie’ to create a cinematic experience that creates both familiar and pervasive feeling, the use of NFTs fits the film’s theme and the groundbreaking nature of our production.”
Phoenix Waters, which was recently sold to a crypto firm, claims that “Lockdown” is Asia’s first NFT-backed feature film. The company has already announced that its upcoming series “Crypto Keepers” will also rely on NFT.
The company’s other upcoming productions include the crime series “Forensic Psychologist”, a Cantonese remake of Richard Linklater’s “Tape” featuring lead author Stephen Belber, and the Hong Kong-set zombie film “Chunking Mansion”.
