Feature Film Mints Every Frame into a Non-Fungible Token (NFT)
The Rideshare Killer a horror/thriller feature film that explores some of the potential risks of using ridesharing services, has just become the first “every frame minted” (EFM) film. The producers minted all 119,170 frames of the feature film into individual 1-of-1 NFTs on the Polygon Blockchain.
With nearly 120,000 individual NFTs minted, The Rideshare Killer offers horror fans a unique way of supporting the film, owning a unique collectible that could possibly appreciate in value, and being a part of the film’s legacy.
As the NFT space matures, more films will be minting every frame into an NFT. Large and small films could stand to benefit from this. Large films like the Star Wars franchise already have an engaged fan base that would clamor to own a unique piece of the film. For smaller films it’s a way for fans to directly support the filmmakers as their careers rise.
“Over the next decade NFTs will change the independent film landscape, offering a totally unique, potentially appreciating collectible to the fans and a sustainable revenue source for artists so that they can create more art,” says producer Tony Greenberg.
The NFT tokens are listed on the official website here: http://www.theridesharekiller.com/nfts/
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided, that is recorded in a blockchain, and that is used to certify authenticity and ownership. In addition to digital collectibles like the frames from a film, it can be used to “tokenize” real-world tangible assets like artwork and real estate, making buying, selling, and trading them more efficient while reducing the probability of fraud because of the transparency offered by blockchain technology.
