Top Entertainment Tokens of Web3

Changes are afoot. The entertainment industry is moving rapidly toward embracing Web3.  The power balance of the entertainment world is shifting toward the  creators and fans and away from traditional mainline bureaucracy.

Web3 is the ownership and collaboration economy.  They are virtual business models, or places parallel to our physical world, built upon the core concepts of decentralization, openness, trustless networks, powered by encrypted, accountable distributed ledgers. You can own and monetize your own content directly with a community or network.  It combines various tech like AR and VR to create centralized virtual spaces where people can meet, work and play.

Here are 4 of the top tokens in the entertainment industry: Music, Sports, Concerts and Film.

Audius AUDIO: the token for music fans

Audius is a fully decentralized music and audio streaming platform.  $AUDIO is the native cryptocurrency that powers the Audius protocol. 

Audius solves an important problem in the music industry. The music industry generates $40+ billion in revenue but only 12% goes to content artists.  Consumer spending alone on music generates around $20 billions of dollars.  Labels and publishers took almost half of it, while artists received just a quarter.  

Artists get paid directly from their fans.  Audius is a blockchain decentralized music streaming service which removes the middlemen in the traditional music industry by connecting artists directly to their fans. Audios’ music player interface serves over half a million users each month.  It is fully decentralized and operated by a community of artists, fans, and operators, giving access to exclusive features and content.

Artists have the sole ownership of their music and can decide how to monetize them on the platform. They can distribute their music free of charge or set custom fees for fans to unlock exclusive content.  

Music curators can receive 90% of the revenue in $AUDIO.  The other 10% is distributed to stakers that support the Audius network.  By staking $AUDIO tokens, artists can access content distribution tools to distribute their artist tokens to fans. Fans holding artist tokens can unlock exclusive access to token-restricted content, such as unreleased tracks, remix competitions, etc.

Chiliz $CHZ, the token for sports & entertainment

Chiliz provides sports and entertainment entities with blockchain-based tools to help them engage and monetize their fans.  The Chiliz token was developed by the Socios sports fan engagement platform which is built on the Chiliz blockchain infrastructure and uses $CHZ as its exclusive on-platform currency.

Socios allows fans to purchase branded Fan Tokens from some of the biggest sports teams in the world including FC Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma, Galatasaray, Atlético de Madrid, OG, CAI & UFC.

Fan Tokens bought on Socios.com allow users to influence their teams via popular vote and become eligible for engagement-based team rewards and recognition. All Fan Tokens are minted using the Chiliz blockchain and all voting is executed as a series of smart contracts.

Companies could use the platform to mint NFT collectibles, deploy play-to-earn games, or even launch their own fan token initiatives independently of Socios. They could also develop DeFi applications, loyalty programs, and more.

CEEK, the token for live concerts and events

CEEK is an award winning developer of premium social virtual and augmented reality experiences, connecting music artists, athletes, and other digital content creators directly to their fans in virtual worlds.  

They unlock new revenue streams for music artists and creators by offering new ways to reach and monetize their fanbase. CEEK tokens enable real time artist payments verified on the blockchain.

Their Web3 platform bridges the gap between gameplay and social networking.  The platform helps music artists, athletes, event creators and makers create direct-to-fan experiences that drive engagement within virtual worlds. 

The VR technology lets fans interact, connect and enjoy 360 videos and other experiences in a fully immersive virtual world. It simulates the experience of attending live concerts and other live experiences like being in classrooms, attending  sporting events and exclusive experiences.  Fans can get up-close and personal with bands or enjoy seeing themselves inside a VR experience with friends.

Their VR’s partnership with Universal Music grants rights to live performances with top tier artists including Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, U2, Sting, Ziggy Marley and others.   CEEK  is empowering creators with the tools to generate new revenue streams from their artistry digitally. 

STARS, the token for film

Let’s make a film together.   From script to screen, the road to Web3 Filmmaking, with fanbase participation, goes through Mogul Productions and its upcoming metaverse Mogieland. 

Mogul’s  immersive and inclusive Film3 platform transforms how movies and other art forms and entertainment get funded through decentralization. It allows members of its expansive community to participate in the production process. 

Until Mogul, the mass of enthusiastic movie fans seeking greater involvement in movie production, were an under-served community.  A lot of great films were not getting made, due to the studios holding all of the power.  

Today, new ways of financing are igniting new trends for indie filmmaking. 

Bringing power back to the crowd.

Fans are becoming a powerful force in the decision making process.  Mogul offers movie fans a piece of the action on the films they support.  Fans vote with STARS tokens on which films they want produced.   When the fans help vote for a film, they get access to certain perks.  

Digital movie merchandise is also used to promote upcoming releases.  Independent filmmakers can monetize NFTs as a means of funding their work. Fans can purchase the NFTs during the pre-production and production phases of filmmaking.    

These utility-based NFTs are designed to bring fans closer to the action via different forms of film memorabilia, exclusivity and behind-the-scenes access.  A couple of examples of those could be attending red carpet premieres.  It could be getting producer credits on a film.  It could be getting access to behind-the-scenes content from the production or it could be meeting a lead actor for face time, or one-of-a-kind film posters..

STARS is the token for Movie Fans. STARS are used throughout the Mogul platform to buy NFTs in the marketplace, vote on films they want produced, redeem exclusive rewards and get discounts on marketplace purchases. Buying Mogul NFTs with STARS gets a 5% discount  compared to buying with ETH. Plus there are lower gas rates. And when you sell NFTs, users receive a 2.5% discount on marketplace fees.

Music, Sports, Concerts and Film are just the beginning of Web3 Entertainment.

Mogul Partners with Acclaimed Filmmaker Anthony Hayes to Launch a Limited NFT Series for Upcoming Sci-Fi Trilogy “Retrogression”

Multi-award-winning filmmaker and actor Anthony Hayes is launching an NFT Series in partnership with Mogul Productions. The proceeds from these NFT sales will finance the new sci-fi film trilogy, “Retrogression.”

Retrogression is a feature film that is part of a three part Sci-Fi trilogy directed by highly acclaimed Australian Filmmaker Anthony Hayes. Hayes is the Producer/Director of GOLD starring Zac Efron, which is out around the World now. As an actor he has starred in WAR MACHINE with Brad Pitt, THE ROVER with Robert Pattinson, LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS with Michael Fassbender and ANIMAL KINGDOM with Joel Edgerton.

Retrogression is another big step forward for Mogul as they look to drive positive change in the entertainment industry by leveraging their platform to empower incredible filmmakers to maintain more financial and creative autonomy. This in conjunction with getting passionate film fans involved in the script to screen process enables a community driven approach to getting the next blockbuster made. The NFT collection will be used as a vehicle to help drive financing and launch the film into production.

The Dark Army is a limited edition mint of an exclusive NFT collection of film-based character NFTs drawn from the sci-fi world of Retrogression – a blockbuster, Hollywood film franchise in development set 300 years in the future. The Dark Army are the enforcers of the law on the desperate island of Omega – one of the few habitable land masses left after the devastation of rising seas caused by climate change. The Dark Army police the Slave Factories, where the poor are forced to work, making “green” products for the rich, who live in massive, luxurious floating cities.

The Dark Army NFT collection is one-of-a-kind, incorporating a limited number of random, super-rare NFTs that entitle the holder/s to perks such as an Executive Producer credit on the first Retrogression feature film. Other rare NFTs will entitle the holder to an exclusive on-set visit during filming, while others will entitle the holder to an appearance as a featured player in the film. Each NFT will as a minimum include: Beta testing passes to play the Retrogression game​, a digital image of a costume from the film, location Scout Shots​ NFT, Exclusive access to Behind the Scenes Shots and Interviews​ on FilmCrib.io, Storyboard Art​ NFT, Access to Exclusive Clips​ on FilmCrib.io. The collection ecompasses more than 15 types of holder utility across both physical and virtual.

The collection will be launched on the Ethereum Blockchain as ERC-721 tokens and purchasable in either Ethereum or ERC-20 STARS tokens. The minting process will be a “Lazy Mint” which is where each NFT minted is completely randomized using Chainlink’s provably fair minting system which is integrated into the Mogul platform, giving each buyer an equal opportunity to land a super-rare NFT.

The NFTs will be individually numbered, divided into military ranks and come in gold, chrome and hologram – all in full 3D designs which are displayed in GLB files that enable the holder to get a full 360 degree view of their NFT.

The super-rare NFT of the Dark Army’s leader – General McKinsky – will have a limited mint of only 10 in each color. The total collection size will be 1,530 units. Each NFT will have further utility built in, enabling future integration as character Avatars into various Metaverses where the Retrogression P2E Gaming experience will be hosted.

From the animators that brought The Simpsons series, The Simpsons Movie and VR attractions at Universal Studios Japan comes the first ever NFT animated series.

The collection of 1,923 handcrafted CGI NFTs is inspired by the last 100 years of Hollywood characters and personalities in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Hollywood sign.   All of which leads into the upcoming animated series, and new Mogieland metaverse.

“It’s not the years. It’s the mileage.”

The Mogies collection of NFTs support the creation of the new animated series. To ensure that the Mogieland and Mogies ecosystem is healthy and continually adding more utility, 50% of all 7.5% secondary market royalties will go directly towards growing the project.   Also 10% of all future rewards from the Mogies animated series, wearables, collectibles, or line of figurines will be distributed to Mogie NFT holders as rewards quarterly.

Mogie NFT owners will get the ability to participate in the animation series development. In the private Discord channel, Mogie owners can be part of the animated filmmaking process in partnership with the animators of the Simpsons. They can make suggestions about the series and have direct input to the creators.

Selected characters from amongst the NFT collection have already been chosen as characters for the Mogies Animated series. As more scripts are written, characters are animated, and episodes produced, certain Mogies will be joining the cast. Which ones are already stars, that we can’t tell you. You’re gonna need to watch to find out.

Once the Mogies animated series airs, the studio version of the Pilot will be transformed into an exclusive NFT and be sent out to all Mogie holders. As part of the Mogies derivative collection, users will own a piece of a TV series. In addition a special thank you will be shown in the credits at the end of episodes to select holders.

​​Mogies are a NFT collection of 1923 NFTs inspired by the last 100 years of Hollywood characters and personalities in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Hollywood sign being erected. This parody collection is to pay homage to the top entertainers and creators that helped Hollywood become what it is today, and create a standard for the next 100 years of filmmaking that will occur within Film3 – a movement spearheaded by Mogul and our community to empower creators to create movies and content in more fan exclusive ways using blockchain technology in the Metaverse.

Mogies in Mogieland - Characters of the Metaverse

Mogies are aliens that feed on entertainment. They love it! They have come to Earth because it’s the biggest source of entertainment in the universe. Humans are humans until they enter Mogieland, and then, when they enter, they become a Mogie.

Mogies are the citizens of Mogieland. They look and act like all our favorite film and TV characters and Hollywood icons from the past 100 years. In actuality, they are aliens from an advanced race that use “lasers” to transform the landscape in the blink of an eye. They feed off entertainment as energy, and travel across the Universe absorbing this vital resource, sucking intelligent worlds dry and moving along to the next. Earth stands to be the biggest source of entertainment and salvation because when our little Mogies get bored, they die. Ultimately, they’re passionate cosplayers and the biggest fans in the galaxy. Mogieland is their Comic-Con, and they have every intention to ensure it lasts forever.

What is Mogieland?

250 MILES EAST OF HOLLYWOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOJAVE DESERT. 

Population: 1923.

Amidst scrub brush and desert dunes, a UFO landed and then obscured 10 sq. miles in a region now known as THE BLUR —- a shrouded forcefield that has taken the shape of an old tube television laid on its back. What goes on behind its opaque borders has remained a mystery…until now.

Mogieland is where Mogies live, and is a Metaverse inspired by the traditional landmarks of Hollywood. Hollywood is a larger-than-life characterization of the entertainment industry and has become a top place in the world for tourism – but not everyone across the world can experience the glamor and excitement of Tinseltown… 

Enter Mogieland. It’s the Metaverse for film, where cultural attractions, movie premieres, red carpet events, concerts, and even celebrity sightings are brought to the world of Film3.   A place where the Greek Theatre, TCL Chinese Theatre, and even Studio City are represented by their transitory counterpart in Mogieland – powered by STARS tokens. Mogies can spend the morning playing-to-earn in Studio City,  the afternoon catching celebrities at Runyon Canyon, and the evening at the Hollywood sign overlooking the energy of Mogieland’s latest film premiere.

Much more utility and many more features are being added in Mogieland over time as Mogul expands its rapidly growing list of partners.

All Mogie holders will receive a piece of land in Mogieland. If a purchaser owns a Mogie and an Access Pass they will receive two plots of land in Mogieland. If a purchaser owns a Mogie, Access Pass, and a certain threshold of STARS tokens to be announced at a later date, they will receive 3 plots of land in Mogieland. These plots of land are randomly distributed according to the type of Mogie and Access Pass.

Rarer Mogies and Access Passes will have a higher weighting to receive more coveted locations of land.

How do I purchase a Mogie?

Mogies are ERC721 NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain and can only be purchased through the Mogul NFT marketplace in the primary market. In the secondary market, Mogies will be available on the Mogul Marketplace, OpenSea, Rarible, and LooksRare. The Mogie that a purchaser will receive is verifiably random

There are 1923 total NFTs which will be issued in the following phases. Mogies are sold in ETH, but can be purchased in ERC20 STARS tokens at a 10% discount to reward our holders.

Four phases of the sale:

  • Phase 1: Dutch Auction
    • A dutch auction for the general public starting at 1 ETH that includes 800 Mogies. This is available for everyone globally and will have 24 hour tiers
      • 1 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.8 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.6 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.4 ETH tier lasts 24 hours
      • 0.2 ETH tier lasts 24 hours 
    • The pricing for the next phase will equal the price paid for the last NFT sold during the dutch auction
      • If all 800 NFTs sell at the 1 ETH level, then the price of the next phase will be 1 ETH
      • If the 800 NFTs do not sell during the dutch auction, the remainder will be allocated to the public sale 
  • Phase 2: Whitelist Sale for Access Pass holders only 
  • Phase 3: Public Sale – 72 hours
  • Phase 3.5: Bonus Mint
    • Any unsold NFTs will be allocated to the first purchasers from the dutch auction
    • This phase will only occur in the unlikely event that the Mogies allocated for public sale do not sell out within a 72 hour period
  • Phase 4: Rebate + Reveal

If the total number of NFTs allocated for public and whitelist sale do not sell out, then the first purchasers of Mogies through the Dutch auction will have the opportunity to mint the remaining Mogies for free (aside from the gas fee required) after 72 hours of the public sale has passed. For example, if there are 15 Mogies left unsold, then the first 15 purchasers through the dutch auction will have their wallet address whitelisted to mint 1 Mogie each for free after the public sale. 

How does the Whitelist work?

Owners of Mogul Access Passes will be the only people eligible for the whitelist. Access Passes can be purchased here: https://opensea.io/collection/mogul-nft 

There are 5 tiers of Access Passes that are granted the utility to mint a Mogie in the whitelist phase. The benefit of the whitelist phase is that you are guaranteed to be able to mint a Mogie at the lowest price offered through the dutch auction during a specific window. 

There are 1,073 NFTs allocated for whitelist spots, and addresses are whitelisted according to the tier of Access Pass they own on a first-come-first-serve basis. Access Pass holders can mint any number of Mogies they wish at the lowest price of the dutch auction. 

In the event that the 1,073 Mogies do not sell out, then the sale will enter the next stage – the public sale. In the event they do sell out, then there will be no public sale and the sale will enter the phase of Rebate & Reveal

What utility comes with Mogies ownership?

Extra perks and bonuses come to the primary purchaser of a Mogie based on how early they have purchased.

Tier Purchased:  1 ETH

  • 1.5x STARS rebate when purchased in ETH
    • 1x STARS rebate when purchased in STARS
  • First 5 unique sales (unique addresses) receive a complimentary Backstage Access Pass

How does the STARS rebate work?

A rebate is a bonus given to a purchaser to reward them for purchasing early. 

Example: 

  • Let’s say a user purchases a Mogie for 1 ETH and the dutch auction closes at 0.6 ETH
  • 1 ETH minus 0.6 ETH is 0.4 ETH. This is the amount of ETH that will be eligible for a rebate
  • Let’s assume the price of STARS is 5 cents and the price of ETH is $3000
  • 0.4 ETH therefore is $1200, which is the amount eligible for the STARS rebate
  • Since the user purchased at 1 ETH, the $1200 delta between their purchase price and the lowest price in the dutch auction is multiplied by 1.5x. Therefore, the user gets an $1800 rebate in STARS tokens 
  • Since STARS tokens are valued at 5 cents, the user will receive 36,000 STARS as a rebate

The rebate coupled with other bonuses make it more advantageous for a user to purchase a Mogie early.

What is the Mogies derivative collection?

Mogies derivatives are part of a separate NFT collection and contract separate, but linked, to the official Mogies collection to maintain the provenance and collectibility of the original Mogies. Derivatives of Mogies, such as the gold embossed and silver embossed Mogies, will live in this collection to reward Mogies holders.

The gold embossed Mogies, which are gifted to the first purchasers of Mogies in the dutch auction, will forever be stamped in the Mogieland Hall of Fame. 

This collection is meant for rare spinoffs, fashion items, and event-driven NFTs related to Mogies and Mogieland for collectors, fans, and users. 

Mogies in Mogieland - NFT Collection - Chavvo Studios The Simpsons

The Artists

Mogies were created by Erick Tran and his team at Chavvo Studios in partnership with Mogul Productions. 

Erick Tran and his team at Chavvo are the animators of the Simpsons and King of the Hill. He and his team have won Telly, Emmy, and Peabody awards for their work. They were responsible for the design of the Simpsons ride at Universal Studios, have consulted with Electronic Arts on the Simpsons video games, and played an integral role in the development of the virtual reality roller coaster rides at Universal Studios Japan; including Doraemon, Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, and more. Their experience in licensing, merchandising, animation, and video games for multi-billion dollar franchises will help propel Mogieland and Mogies to the next level as Mogul’s co-partners.

How were Mogies made?

Mogies are all 1/1 NFTs that are sculpted individually using computer generated imagery (CGI). There was no programming used to copy characteristics from one Mogie to another – each was hand sculpted. 

The first step in creating a Mogie was to have the design team create character references and hand-drawn 2D sketches of the character. Then, each character goes through a rigging process to create the 3D skeletal model of the character. This allows the character to easily be transformed into animated versions of themselves. The last step is to bring the characters to life with the Mogies animators.

If Mogies were 2D characters, and did not go through this process, they could not exist in a 3D space like the Metaverse. Mogies, due to this rigorous design process, can easily walk through the space and live in Mogieland.

How are Mogies rarities determined? 

Mogies have 7 different facial expressions that are based on the 7 universal emotions that humans wear on their face. These facial expressions will play a role in how their characters will interact in future Mogies series’ and creative concepts.

Mogies have 5 tiers of rarity, which are denoted from the background in the NFT:

Mogies in Mogieland - 5 Tiers of Rarity - NFT
  1. Anger
  2. Fear
  3. Disgust 
  4. Happy
  5. Sad
  6. Surprise
  7. Contempt

These expressions were assigned custom to each Mogie based on their perceived personality.

Mogies also have a STAR Ranking in their metadata, which is a score out of 100 denoting the popularity of the Mogie in Mogieland.

There are a select number of Mogies that have angel wings. If the actor that played the Mogie character passed away outside of Mogieland at the time of the mint, their Mogie character has been represented with angel wings. 

There are several different colors of flat backgrounds in Tier 5 Mogies. These were chosen on an aesthetic basis by the animators of the Mogies and colors were grouped together with families of Mogie characters.

What is Film3?

Getting to Web 3

Web1 is an era of the internet where people could post content and it could be consumed by others.  Web 2.0 is the era of the social internet or the web as a platform, but where large companies owned all of the data being posted on them, combining mobile, social and cloud computing.

Web3 is the ownership and collaboration economy.  Web 3.0 are virtual business models, or places parallel to our physical world, built upon the core concepts of decentralization, openness, trustless networks, powered by encrypted, accountable distributed ledgers, where you can own and monetize your own content directly with a community or network.  It combines various tech like AR and VR to create centralized virtual spaces where people can meet, work and play.

Film3 is the filmmaking version of Web 3.0.

If Film 1.0 represented the era of making more movies and hoping they get consumed, and Film 2.0 represents the consolidation of the studios and everyone generally having to go through them and their distribution channels to get a movie project greenlighted, then Film3 is where the economy of Web 3.0 melds with filmmaking. It represents ownership and monetization of your own content without needing big studios to get a film produced and distributed through Decentralized Film Financing (DeFiFi) which also includes NFTs.

Film3 infrastructure is taking place online.  It is the immersive experience of filmmaking in blockchain and metaverse spaces.  The newest layers of the entertainment industry are being built online.  Production companies, film companies, streaming platforms, financing, advertising and more aspects of the filmmaking process are on the internet in a more transparent way.  

Filmmaking has become very Hollywood-centric and cliquey.   Only a few key decision makers act as gatekeepers for content. Studios run the show in terms of determining what content goes out because they’ve  become more vertically integrated and have lots of cash.

Film financing structures are expensive, inefficient and restrictive.  It enhances the power imbalance between distributors and indie films.

There’s a lack of funding access for indie films. Budget standards exist in silos. There is poor market data for international sales.  Even for key decision makers,  there is a lack of information regarding support for what types of film the fans actually wish to watch and engage with?   Post production is a lengthy process, often occurring without fan participation or even fan awareness. 

Film3 solves the power imbalance. 

Bottom-up design 

Film3 is being developed in full view of everyone, encouraging maximum participation and experimentation.  

New ways of financing are igniting new trends for indie filmmaking.   Too many great potential films don’t get made, due to the studios powers making it difficult for the little guys, including indie filmmakers and movie fans, to have their voices heard.  

That all changes with Film3.

With Film3, movies are made with the fans.  

For filmmakers that were struggling to get financing or to launch their story into the market, Film3 fills a gap.

The whole premise of Film3 is to enable filmmakers to get their stories turned into cinematic releases.  Film3 pioneers offer movie fans a piece of the action on movies they want to support. Through Film3, the fanbase is part of the film production.  They become a force in the decision making process.  

A film’s net proceeds can be distributed back to the fanbase community, via a blockchain smart contract.   The modern movie fan is part of a collective that lets their voice be heard, both online and off. They mobilize and fight for what they are passionate about, to the point that real changes get made to Hollywood projects. 

Film3 is built by innovative groups and partners upon the notion of decentralization, transparency, and greater user utility for fans, collectors and filmmakers.

Arabian Camels is the first NFT community to create a $50M DeFi Hollywood movie which is owned together with everyone via NFTs.

First dropped in 2021, the Arabian Camels collection helped lay the foundation for IP from the upcoming feature film Antara.   NFT holders can get acting parts in the film, access to the film’s premiere, and part-ownership of the movie, enabling them to partake in box office and streaming revenues. The community is also eligible to earn a yield on their NFTs during production. 

The vision behind Arabian Camels is to create a whole new platform and ecosystem where creators, producers, digital artists, and communities can collaborate to create something special for movie lovers. 

The Film3 landscape currently consists of subcategories

Decentralized Production Companies

Crowdfunding

Virtual Cinemas 

Film/Series using NFTs

Film related platforms 

Film related DAOs

NEARVERSE fits in the Virtual Cinemas subcategory.  They partner with Film3 communities to scale metaverse development in virtual cinemas and user engagement. NEARVERSE  is a metaverse focused on empowering artists, and provides the ability for every player to earn through exploration, by giving options to create epic lands and interactions thus enabling users to embark on a new journey within a thriving metacommunity. 

Mogul Productions is a leader in all Film3 subcategories. 

Filmmakers use Mogul as a platform to launch their movie campaigns.  Mogul and its partners establish product lines to connect movie-makers with fans to decentralize the filmmaking process and provide better fan engagement opportunities.  

Mogul partners with artists, filmmakers, actors, and other entertainers to provide an end-to-end solution for minting and launching their own NFT collections through their marketplace. They are an immersive and inclusive platform transforming how movies and other forms of art and entertainment get funded by allowing members of its expansive community to participate in the production process like never before.  

Projects are greenlit through a combination of voter staking, NFT film memorabilia sales, private funding, and film funds. 

From script to screen, Film3 has 3 pillars.  

  1. Decentralized Film Financing platform (DeFiFi)
  2. NFT marketplace
  3. Metaverse

DeFiFi Platform 

Indie filmmakers are able to get their movies financed by incentivizing from their fans.   Crypto-based decentralized platforms allow fans to participate in the box office revenues, conduct voting and governance on key film decision aspects, plus reward users through voter staking and other incentives.  It brings a whole new level of movie promotions along with the financing. 

NFT Marketplace 

Utility based NFTs are designed to create incentive structures by bringing fans closer to the action via different forms of experiential utility and behind-the-scenes access. Independent filmmakers can  monetize NFTs during the pre-production and production phases of filmmaking as a means of funding their work.

A few examples of utility-based NFTs could be getting producer credits on a film or getting access to behind-the-scenes content. It could be meeting a lead actor for facetime, or one-of-a-kind film memorabilia or invitations to exclusive events like red carpet premieres.

Experience Hollywood in the Metaverse

Social trends are changing.  During the Film 2.0 era,  going out to the movies was a large social pastime.  It still is.  Yet, with streaming services and now home movie watching, the pastime  has lost a lot of what it once had.  The Metaverse has the ability to bring that back

Mogieland is Hollywood in the metaverse.  It is a Film3 digital reality that combines aspects of social media, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and cryptocurrencies to allow fans and other users to interact virtually.  Visual elements are overlaid with sounds, CG, and other inputs to enhance the user experience and enhance fictional realities.

Users from around the world can host and attend digital movie premieres.  

They can…

  • Go to movie premieres and red carpet events
  • Mingle with film and entertainment creators plus get behind-the-scenes looks 
  • Attend meet and greets with the stars
  • Attend first screening viewings of films
  • Watch movies with tickets paid for in tokens 
  • Enjoy hangout areas with other cinema lovers in VR environments to discuss all things entertainment
  • Attend concerts
  • Attend fashion shows
  • Buy NFT’s from virtual stores
  • Own, build, rent and use land for Film3 commerce.
  • Own iconic pieces of Hollywood transformed in Mogieland
  • Show off your virtual style by wearing your own NFT fashions
  • Play to earn in Studio City

Introducing the Film3 lifecycle. 

Through decentralized applications

  • Filmmakers can launch their Intellectual Property (IP) to a dedicated audience via DeFi and NFTs.
  • Financing and payment distribution is handled through smart contracts, providing access to global non-dilutive capital.
  • Incentivized engagement is used to build a fanbase, and de-risk distribution. Exclusive film content is issued to fans through NFT smart contracts.  
  • Smarter data using built-in fanbases drive decisions across entire slates.

To summarize, Film3 is the next generation of media, disrupting legacy models by utilizing blockchain technology and the power of digital communities. By eliminating the many layers of middlemen between artist and audience, revenue can be distributed across a flat organizational structure. 

Film3 gives independent filmmakers unprecedented access to financing; offers them greater creative control over their projects; allows them to leverage their audience and industry connections in new, revolutionary ways; and creates a more equitable financial model that benefits creators before creditors.

NFT Drops

From The Simpsons to Mogies: The Journey of Erick Tran & Chavvo Animation Studios 

The journey of the animators that brought The Simpsons series, The Simpsons Movie and VR attractions at Universal Studios Japan, to its first ever NFT animated series and metaverse is filled with adventure and curiosity.

CHAVVO Animation Studios is a tight-knit international family of creative storytellers, animators, and artists based in five countries. They embrace new challenges and use their collective experience to create meaningful and compelling content.

That collective experience harnessed a passion for TV and film production as well as merchandising spanning two decades.  These years of experience, which also includes video game and theme park design, has prepared the team for the NFT and metaverse revolution. 

Erick Tran who founded CHAVVO, with the animation team, put their collective experiences together with Mogul Productions to create the Mogies animated series, featuring 1,923 unique Hollywood inspired NFT characters that interact inside the Mogieland metaverse. 

Erick played a key role in building the digital pipeline for The Simpsons. In the process he also created and developed the training program for artists migrating from traditional paper animation to newer technology.  

That process helped start his collaboration with Toon Boom, the software company known for creating award-winning software for animation and story boarding to bring TV series and feature films from ideation to screen. This collaboration was pivotal because it allowed him to participate in various venues in the US and Canada where he was able to expand the CHAVVO brand. It was the opportunity for CHAVVO to scale as a “100% digital pipeline studio”.  

Erick shared his thoughts and journey from the success of Simpsons to the Mogies, the first real NFT animated series.  

“I’m an 80’s kid and grew up with new emerging technology and the start of the video gaming revolution. I was instantly hooked and knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. I started programming in high school and learned Photoshop quite early. As I started my career on The Simpsons I didn’t realize that having technological knowledge would give me an edge. I remember giving Final Cut Pro classes to staff members as well as developing a training program for The Simpsons Movie to help artists transition from traditional to digital workflow. When I founded CHAVVO we were already ahead of the game with the pandemic because our team had been working remotely since 2015. So when artists were figuring out how to be at home and work remotely, we had already mastered our pipeline and workflow.  We were essentially pandemic ready. 2020 ended up being a very good year (workwise) despite unfortunate events happening around the world.”  

Towards final delivery of the Simpsons Movie,  Erick worked with Universal Creative and Fox to co-design the Simpsons Ride attraction which developed his relationship with Universal.  Additionally, he worked on video gaming projects for The Simpsons available on major consoles such as PlayStation, XBox, and Nintendo Wii.

Artists from CHAVVO have worked on projects such as the Batman series, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Kung Fu Panda, Frozen and other feature films. “We are bringing our decades worth of experience from working on hit shows and award winning films to the Mogies NFT animation project. We’re so thankful that the Mogul team recognizes the need for high quality content in this space. Together we are stepping into new territory and it’s very exciting for what’s in the works.” said Tran. 

 One of Erick’s personal career high points was winning a Peabody Award.  Peabody Awards honor excellence in storytelling that reflect the social issues and the emerging voices of our day.

Erick Tran:  “Never in my life did I ever think I’d win a Peabody Award.”

“To me it’s kind of like winning a Nobel Prize. It’s the combination of what the Simpsons has signified in the entertainment industry and the decades of hard work we put into the show that makes this recognition a big deal for us all. It’s a great thing to have received awards through the work I’ve done thru FOX but it’s more special to me when we win thru CHAVVO. To say we are an award winning studio is a dream come true”

Erick Tran: “The Simpsons really helped me understand how to build the multi-billion dollar franchise.

“From development to the big screen, from licensing to merchandising, theme park and video games, Fox has given me the opportunity to understand so many aspects of the animation business.  With that knowledge I was ready to build CHAVVO into the studio it has become now. We have been able to recruit top talented artists in the industry, many who are close friends of mine.”

“We have a special working relationship with Universal Studios Japan.  It’s a treat to be able to work on big anime titles which fans can experience while being on a physical roller coaster, with VR headsets! When you put on the VR headset, you’re basically in this whole new world with awesome anime characters. We believe that VR, metaverse and NFTs are the future and so important to understand, and be a part of history.”

The Mogies NFT Animated Series

“We are committed to the NFT community. As an NFT producer we want to be a major player in the NFT space. Working with Mogul, I can see that really coming to fruition.”

“It’s the first ever NFT Animated series that’s a real legit series.   It’s a homage to Hollywood, to our favorite characters, actors, and movies that have made us. Mogul has given us creative freedom to develop something original and special in this space. It’s great to see Mogul supporting creators and the animation community like very few others have.”

Erick Tran:  “Mogieland is a play on reality which is what the metaverse is.  It’s a place where we can interact, connect and roleplay. We wanted to create a show that eventually could intertwine, or have the ability to intertwine every single character at one moment in time.”

“Probably the one exciting thing that everyone is expecting out of The Mogies is cross mixing characters from other universes and becoming a melting pot of unlimited possibilities.”

“That’s one of the scenes from our trailer where we had Mogie characters from a classic novel and movie series  fighting an evil wizard from another series.

Another is when we crossed one superhero with the alien in the trailer. The idea is that we are mixing different characters into different universes. That will be pretty interesting. I think that’s where the fun starts.” 

“The thing that is really cool about the Mogies concept are the NFT characters themselves.  If you happen to own a special character, let’s say the white wizard.  If and when he appears in an episode and plays a pivotal role, it has the ability to gain rank and increase in value over time. 

The derivatives market is an opportunity we cannot ignore and have to hit out of the park.”

“We are currently developing ideas that have never been done before in the entertainment world with direct-to-consumer applications. We can’t get into details at the moment but we know these concepts haven’t been done before and Mogul’s platform is fully capable to execute.” 

Animating The Mogie NFTs

Erick explained parts of how CHAVVO designed the Mogie NFTs using CG (Computer Graphics).  

“The design team researched, created and designed the NFT characters based off of Mogul’s original concept ideas.  Our 2D design team would digitally hand sketch each drawing. That goes through an approval process through one of our supervisors.  

Afterwards, our supervisor would send designs for me to review. I only see things that are filtered through her. Afterwards, I make my own final notes before it goes on to the CG design team.  The CG design team would go ahead and build based off that design and would start basically CG sculpting the characters. 

Once it goes to the design process we start rigging characters for the animation.  With a rigged character it allows animators to move them around and add the proper acting for each scene. 

The decision between 2D or CG  was more for visual aesthetics for the brand. If we were to have designed the Mogies in 2D, it would be difficult to exist in a 3D metaverse space.

That is why going CG was more visually appealing and practical. It looks more polished. Our goal is that owners can actually walk in a 3D Mogieland metaverse space that’s functional and interactive. I’m excited to see the characters move through the streets of Mogieland.”

“This is a fun and great opportunity for everyone who hasn’t had the chance to visit Hollywood to explore it through Mogieland. Things like going to a nightclub, visiting a recording studio, gift shops and buying digital memorabilia. How about winning a Mogie award for your short film that users can watch at the Mogie theater!  

 I think there’s huge potential for that in the marketplace.”

“There’s so much potential for creating more Mogies. I think it’s great to think about other celebrities from other countries with a fanbase. That becomes a whole other drop to represent other celebrities around the world, like having Latin Grammys after having the Grammys. And we haven’t tapped into the sports world. Yes, the potential is endless.”

“The future of Mogieland is about bringing the most entertaining experience to our community and creating monetary value. Mogieland becomes this fantasy place where our community can plug in and play.”

And then lastly, I’m excited about digital real estate within Mogieland.  

“I think anybody and everybody here who appreciates real estate can understand the value of digital real estate.  We have plans to have the ability to put your own star on the Mogie Walk of Fame. Also, buying digital storefronts, restaurants, museums are just a few things that will be available for purchase.”

Mogies pays homage to the top entertainers and creators that helped make Hollywood what it is today, and create a standard for the next 100 years of filmmaking that will occur within Film3.

Film3 is a movement spearheaded by Mogul Productions and our community to empower film and content creators to create movies and content in better fan exclusive ways using blockchain technology. 

Mogul is where movies meet blockchain through DeFi and NFTs, and now, the Metaverse through Mogies and their new home, Mogieland.
