Guess Who Made the First Film Minted As A NFT?

Kevin Smith, partnered with his producers Jordan Monsanto of SmodCo and David Shapiro of Semkhor, has teamed up with Secret Network's Legendao for an NFT launch for their horror anthology, "KillRoy Was Here". This will be the first film in history to be released in this format.

Smith said, "When you buy the KillRoy NFT, you get exclusive access to the movie. But more importantly, the specific version of KillRoy you get is YOUR KillRoy to do with whatever you want: Make your own movie, turn it into a cartoon, license him for lunchboxes! We started the story, now YOU get to continue it with your very own version of our titular character! And along with a brand new chapter I'll shoot next year, the shorts and animation that the KillRoy NFT owners create with their own KillRoy's will make up the bulk of our sequel anthology. The KillRoy NFT offers an exciting and unique opportunity to go from art collector to collaborating artist!"

Those who buy the "KillRoy Was Here" NFT will enjoy exclusive ownership one-of-a-kind KillRoy art, as well as other film material. They will also have encrypted viewing access to the pic itself.

"This release is made possible by Secret Network's Legendao NFT technology, which ensures that the NFT content can only be accessed by the owner themselves. It opens the door for distributing all kinds of digital content as NFTs: Movies, TV shows, music - anything - can be reshaped for Web3," said Guy Zyskind, CEO of SCRT Labs, who runs Legendao and Secret Network. 

He added, "Digital sharing and streaming no doubt revolutionized the entertainment industry, but they also caused piracy issues and profit loss for creators. Through partnerships like ours with Smith and Tarantino, Legendao can work alongside creators to develop projects that they can share without losing ownership. It's clear that NFTs are the future of digital content distribution - giving creators more control over their work and a closer connection to their fanbases."
