Global NFT distribution and viewing platform VUELE announced it grossed nearly six figures, bringing in 32.86267 ETH ($93,435) with the release of 11 total NFT drops of feature film thriller Zero Contact starring Oscar-winning Best Actor Anthony Hopkins.
The flick, which also stars Aleks Paunovic, was the first to be premiered on an NFT. To promote the release, VUELE offered fans several special NFTs, highlighted by one which provided two copies of the film, one starring Hopkins and one shot with another actor. Only one edition of that copy exists and it is on the NFT. That NFT sold for 20 ETH ($56,860 at the time of sale) and it provides the owner with a walk-on role in the film.
“In just these few short days, we’ve seen a community form around our film, enhanced fan engagement, and also proved a new revenue stream in the industry. We think this is ground-breaking,” said Rick Dugdale, co-founder of VUELE and director and producer of Zero Contact. “Our goal was to earn the respect of the NFT space in order for us to create staying power and help blaze a new path for filmmakers. Not only is this now a proven distribution model, but we will be able to create new film financing structures moving forward.”
Each winner receives signed digital artwork of the film poster, the “making of” the film, Crypto Generative Art by REMO x Dcsan and a VUELE “Golden Ticket.”
