‘Stealing Chaplin’ will become the first film to auction collectable NFT‘s for their film using OpenSea.io. There will also be fifteen unique collectable NFT’s available for the bid.
The collectable that are featured in the auction bid contains comedic content from the diabolical dark comedy film. Some of the content includes video clips, film posters, and images from different scenes. Although it is unheard of in the film world but will be the first of its kind to cross into the astronomically successful financial NFT space.
Producer Ken Bressers stated; “This new NFT market is especially exciting because it not only appeals to collectors and financial speculators but also to those, in our case, who want to support independent filmmakers.”
Bressers believes with the NFT market it brings much more then ownership of artwork, video, digital drawing, image, song or gif but also allowing the field of independent cinema and NFT to merge seamlessly. Most importantly is gaining support which Bressers mentioned before.
