The Pulp Fiction NFT Collection, which will run on the blockchain of Secret NetworkIt will consist of raw scenes, handwritten versions of the script, and comments from Tarantino himself.
Renowned film director Quentin Tarantino will launch a collection of seven non-fungible tokens (NFT), consisting of raw scenes, never-before-seen handwritten script drafts, and comments from him on his film Pulp Fiction, announced the same filmmaker at the NFT.NYC event. This was reported by media such as CNBC.
“I’m excited to introduce these exclusive scenes from Pulp Fiction to fans.” Tarantino said in a press release. The original film, which grossed approximately $ 214 million at the box office, led Tarantino to take home the Oscar for Best Screenplay in 1994.
Many will remember that the film, starring John Travolta and Uma Thurman and considered one of the most representative films of Tarantino’s violent and contemporary aesthetics, which tells in non-chronological order the story of some hit men who work for a gangster who He controls the city’s dark businesses, including gambling.
The collection will run on the blockchain of Secret Network, which allows both the creator and owner of NFT to privately own, lease and sell art, Secret Network co-founder Guy Zyskind told Blockworks.
“If the whole idea of Secret NFT is that I can share something specifically with those who buy it, then I want to share something that is extremely valuable to me, extremely valuable in pop culture and something that has never been seen before.” Zyskind said, citing conversations with Tarantino about the project.
“What is something truly iconic? What is something that is very, very close to your heart, very, very close to your fans, historical in terms of pop culture meaning? And then to [Tarantino] he came up with the idea ”, Zyskind said. “Tarantino said, ‘Look, I have the original Pulp Fiction script written by hand. I’ve never shared it with anyone. “
NFT can only be seen by the owner
The NFTs of Secret Network contain content that you can only see the owner of the asset itself, and the property does not have to be made public, the report says.
“Unlike normal NFTs, we can provide access control [de usuario]”Zyskind added. “Basically, if I’m an artist and I’m publishing a work of art, I don’t have to reveal it to the whole world, I can selectively publish it.”
Privacy and access controls such as those of Secret are revolutionary for NFTs, according to Zyskind. “NFTs could be the most disruptive technology of this decade”, said. “The arts community is alive with innovation and the media is actively exploring all potential use cases associated with technology. Now, we have privacy and access controls courtesy of the Secret Network. Ultimately, that will allow for a whole litany of potential new use cases. “
According to the information, the collection Pulp Fiction NFT will be auctioned in OpenSea, but an official date has yet to be announced.
There have been other projects that relate cinema and NFT. For example, in July we reported that a film by award-winning movie star Anthony Hopkins, called Zero Contact, would be launched on a new non-fungible token (NFT) platform called Fly.io. The feature film was produced entirely virtually during the 2020 global pandemic.
Also this year, in September, acclaimed film director David Cronenberg shot a short documentary exploring his own mortality, and has coined it in the NFT format. As such, Cronenberg’s NFT is a video rendering of his latest short film. In the one-minute recording, the director can be seen entering a room flooded with white light to discover himself lying on a bed.
