War Drama “Revival” Partners with Mogul to Launch Movie NFTs

“Revival” is helmed by Award Winning Director Jivan Avetisyan, with the full length feature film to be shot in Armenia/Artsakh, Iceland, Lithuania, Israel, and France

Revival tells the story of one Woman’s secret that forces three destinies to intertwine when a young robotics student living in France is determined to root out the truth of his father’s wartime death in Armenia / Artsakh… his girlfriend, a young French woman sets out to reunite with her estranged volcanologist father in Iceland to trace her indigenous Canadian roots… his esteemed French professor, a descendent of a Holocaust survivor, reclaims his abandoned Jewish roots in Israel in search of the meaning of life. Along the way, an artificial intelligence system evolves via their hardships and forced sacrifices that bring them closer to their true identity. 

Director Jivan Avetisyan spent 38 days in Artsakh during the brutal September 2020 Artsakh War, which lasted until November 9, 2020. Avetisyan also spent a substantial amount of time documenting all the atrocities and war crimes committed against the Armenian population of Artsakh, including his family. He will integrate these photos and videos in Revival and his future film projects.

In the film, Avetisyan has presented fragments and glimpses of the stories that he has heard, read, witnessed, and memorized at different times. In a sense, the film is based on actual, lived stories and historical events. The narratives are intertwined in an interesting way and become a part of a completed single continuous chain. These stories are presented, for example, as the protagonist’s storyline, or as elements or episodes in the stories of other characters. Revival also adds a key element of Artificial Intelligence development to the story as AI plays a prominent role especially since it is meant to change the face of warfare. The AI component appears in the film with the character of ORCHID (ORganizer of CHaotic Input Data), which has some “water-like” characteristics. The film is not a sci-fi movie but will beautifully show the evolution of the ORCHID, an AI system, and how the final step of it is self-consciousness.

Peace is one of the main messages of the film project Revival. “I try to show the route leading to peace that I long so much for. The war overwhelmed my thoughts when I was nine to ten years old. At that time, I didn’t understand all the tragedy, but being at the center of the events, I felt its upcoming danger every day. And now, each and every day, I wake up with a hope that my children will never see and feel such horrors. In order to have that peace, I believe self-knowledge is necessary to gain peace of mind. Therefore, what occupies an important place in the film is the retrieval and preservation of the identity of generations who suffered from wars and disasters at different times. The question always haunting the characters is, “Who am I?” This is the driving force of their quests.” – Jivan Avetisyan

The NFT collection launching on Mogul will be designed to give Indie Film Fans the ability to get closer to the action and filmmaking process through a variety of different utilities such as; access to the Premier and After Party, Gated content with BTS footage, Visits to the shooting set, Digital film poster with Director’s autograph & more. The support of the film via the NFTs will also directly contribute to the financing of the film and expedite the production.

Revival gained international interest in 2020 by the selection committee of Berlinale Talents, at the Berlin International Film Festival. Avetisyan was selected amongst 3,400 applicants to attend Berlinale Talents 2020. Within the talent program, he became the subject of a documentary by German international Broadcaster Deutsche Welle, DW Documentary.

Babel Universe To Launch Sci-Fi Universe on Mogul

Babel Universe to launch on Mogul Productions and power an Animated Series

Background

Babel began as an academic thesis about a hypothetical “universal language”, a language that is powerful enough to overcome all communication barriers between individuals. If you’re familiar with the biblical story “Tower of Babel”, you probably know that the people there spoke a unified language until God confused their tones. That language led its speakers to build a tower to reach heaven. In another sense, it showcases a positive belief in the collective power of mankind when connected. 

After researching throughout history, (Handuo, Co-Founder of Babel) found that the search for the “universal language” has taken many shapes over the past thousands of years. From religion to linguistics, from philosophy to computer science, the most recent attempt to realize such a language is the BCI (Brain-Computer Interfaces) technology. 

Such a techno-universal language may become true in the unavoidable near future. (Not only because Elon Musk’s company Neuralink aims to make it.) Especially when it brings more productivity to the ones who “speak” it than the ones who don’t. However, just like the “Tower of Babel” story implies, we can be constructive when we’re connected, but destructive when such a connection fails. We’re not only facing a technological problem but a humanistic choice. Because technology is who uses it. Just as a language is who speaks it.

In mid-2020, Handuo wrote these ideas into a Sci-fi short story and presented it at the Cologne film festival. Three writers (Marina, Michael, and Hernando) saw his presentation and found him after. In the following half a year, they expanded the short story into an animated series bible. 

The Animated Series

“After a VR game that offered them purpose and a sense of community ends in 2035, 10,000 individuals reunite through an overwhelmingly powerful mindsharing software given to them by the game makers, only to find themselves on the run from the authorities…” 

Together with Marina Bendocchi Alves, Michael Grießler, and Hernando Sandoval, they wrote an Animated-Series Bible in early 2021 that contains 10 x 10-15mins episodes for the first season. 

We follow three main characters’ journeys from finding “Heaven” (the software that enables the universal language) in an online game to forming a collective intelligence and confronting an AI totalitarian world. 

On one hand, the story is a speculative future of our world. On the other hand, it also centers on a universal topic: Connection vs Disconnection. The universal language speakers can share their thoughts, experiences, emotions, and skills, but also their flaws. Will they be able to shine a light on the dark cyberpunk future? We invite everyone who participates in the project to decide. 

BabelDAO

Babel believes that a story about a collective intelligence is best to be made by a collective intelligence. And the best people and tools for this large-scale co-creation are only to be found in Web3. Therefore, Handuo partnered up with blockchain veteran Yanko at the beginning of 2022 to establish BabelDAO: a decentralized autonomous organization to bring the animated series to life and expand the Babel universe in ways that we alone cannot imagine. 

The BabelDAO members will hold NFT badges that represent their levels of involvement in the universe’s creation. Their NFTs can be earned without spending money. Members can upgrade their badges by completing educational tasks, participating in community events, and creating values (Creative, Financing, Marketing, and Management) for the project in their own ways. On the other hand, they can open a purchasable option for members to speed up their growth. This is to bring cash flow for the project. 

Every part of the series production is to be co-created. Members with high-level badges (which usually means a deeper understanding of the project) can do things such as writing their own storylines, voting on creative decisions, auditioning for voice-acting, and getting paid for their work. 

The BabelDAO funds their creatives with both USD and their native ERC-20 token. All members involved in the series production are also to be compensated a royalty when the series goes public (i.e. streams on one of the major streaming platforms).

There are eight guilds in the DAO. They are: Writing Guild, Visual Art Guild, Audio Art Guild, Creative Coding Guild, Moving-Image Guild, Design Guild, Finance Guild, and Public Relations Guild. A universe can only expand with the collective effort of people with different skills and passions. 

For those looking to get involved, you can earn a Seed badge (for free) and join their Discord. The date for the Babel NFT Drop will be announced on Mogul Productions in the near future!

Billionaire Bunnies Club Launches Crime Drama Series On Mogul

PFP collection will also be used to drive ESA Therapy

The Billionaire Bunnies Club was founded by two graduates of Pace University and Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC. Julian Bonilla and Marcus Louis, who came together to empower others with the passion for entrepreneurship in Web3 and to also bring awareness to Emotional Support Animal Therapy.

The Billionaire Bunnies Club is currently in the process of creating an animated crime drama series that utilizes NFT art and blockchain technology. They are looking to create a unique experience for their holders and plan to provide an environment that emphasizes Web3 education curating a luxury lifestyle and culture brand which ties in together perfectly with other many global brand initiatives. Their focus is on becoming a globally recognized brand within the NFT industry.

Co- Founder, Julian Bonilla has a background in commodity sales and marketing. Julian has helped companies maximize their earnings and outreach to consumers through social media and network marketing opportunities. An accomplished entrepreneur with a long track record of success beginning when he was 21 years old eventually building well over $10M worth of revenue for clients and helping to build several successful ancillary businesses during this period. For nearly 7 years, Julian was associated with the new construction and FinTech sales business. He was responsible for bringing in over 90% of the revenue for those businesses. The Artist and Co-Founder Marcus Louis has a graphic design and fashion design background where he has worked with major brands in Tech and Fashion. Marcus, the creative lead of The Billionaire Bunnies Club has taken the art of this project to new levels and knows the foundation of it is the quality of the art.

Their roadmap is developed around producing the animated series and also offers access to other member-only events that will take place in real life and in the metaverse. The animated series will be funded by the community and also have member only perks that will allow the community opportunities to access behind the scenes content and much more! Owner of a Billionaire Bunnie will give lucky holders the opportunity to see their characters as cameo in different episodes of the series adding more interest to engage the audience and their desire to watch.

The roadmap will give members the opportunity to understand when the animated series will become produced in-house. They look forward to continuing building with a community-driven development approach leading the way. They are an ESA therapy driven team and the idea of this all stemmed from seeing a direct correlation where bunnies are used as emotional support animals. They believe in investing in the fundamental methods of therapy. An ESA can drastically improve a person’s quality of life, helping them through sometimes debilitating anxiety and depression symptoms. A lot of their efforts of awareness will be directed towards those organizations focused on mental health and mental disabilities who utilize these ESA therapy programs. As support animals are often overlooked as a method of coping, they want to bring awareness to the different types of adversity we all face in life especially since the events of COVID and the unsure economic standing it hits us all with. Bunnies happen to be a huge part of the ESA therapy community so they believe they can help a great variety of different families with their team’s mission. The Billionaire Bunnies Club will continue offering education within their community on safely selling, buying and trading NFTs.

 Mogul Productions Partners with Reign of the Underdog for Six-Part Graphic Novel Animated Adaptation

Mogul Productions, the decentralized film financing (DeFiFi), NFT marketplace and production company, is leveraging its community of film fans and blockchain marketplace to help fund the adaptation of a six-part adult graphic novel into an animated series.

The series, dubbed Reign of the Underdog Featuring Lazarus, is an original graphic novel by Lazarus Guidry featuring words and art by some of the industry’s brightest stars. The series’ arc tells the story of Lazarus, a man who must battle his way through a dark world of crime and corruption in search of answers about his family and his very existence. It’s a brooding tale with danger and deception lurking around every turn, with blood to be spilled along the way.

Lazarus Guidry (né Rawlin Guidry) is the creator and writer of the Reign of the Underdog series, and the inspiration for its titular character. A rapper, producer, and actor, he is known for roles in Straight outta Compton, Unsolved, Hulu’s Runaways and many other roles. He is the brainchild behind Reign of the Underdog featuring Lazarus.   Guidry drew on experiences from his own troubled youth in Louisiana in the creation of the graphic novel’s world.

Comic industry veteran Arvell M. Jones is the penciller for the Reign of the Underdog series. His impressive artist resume dates back to Marvel Comics in the 1970s, drawing for titles including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Luke Cage, the Avengers, Daredevil, and more. 

Bob Wiacek, the inker for the project, is another comic veteran with decades of experience, beginning in the 1970s as a member of the “Crusty Bunkers” inking collective. He got his start inking backgrounds over Curt Swan’s pencils on Superman for DC Comics before starting a multi-decade career with Marvel, where he worked on titles including Star Wars, The Uncanny X-Men, Power Pack, Sensational She-Hulk, and many others.

Tom Orzechowski, responsible for letters and copyediting of the project, is an award-winning comic book letterer, primarily known for his work on Uncanny X-Men. Over his career, he has lettered around 6,000 pages of longtime X-Men writer Chris Claremont’s scripts over a 25-year period. 

Once released, each new 24-page full-color issue of Reign of the Underdog Featuring Lazarus will be distributed to NFT holders, including a music compilation with the first issue. The 500 piece NFT collection will be used to help finance the upcoming animated series and give fans the opportunity to be part of the journey from script to screen. NFT holders will receive a long list of perks & utility in addition to receiving all 5 issues of the comics!

The six-part mini-series will appeal to a broad spectrum of adult comic fans, featuring a richly detailed imagining of a dystopic 2033 cloaked in futuristic sci-fi imagery.

Benefits of STARS Tokens

Welcome everyone to Mogul’s ecosystem.  We are the NFT marketplace platform for the movie industry.  Over the years Mogul has cultivated its team and technology to give you the best experience.  Each day Mogul develops exciting products infused with a strong community spirit.

With so many exciting products from film and entertainment entering Mogul’s marketplace, new fans and collectors are joining our ecosystem daily.  Mogul creates processes to interact with and reward its community.  This also includes working with its cross-community partners to provide utility in the form of games, tokens and other rewards.   

The STARS token is our native cryptocurrency that opens the world of Film3 wide open.   It’s used for staking, voting, governance and ownership.  STARS allows users to take part in our NFT drops, watch movies and fashion shows in our Mogieland metaverse, and get involved in the community.  Fans and collectors who wish to buy NFTs on the Mogul platform,  or participate in the P2E games and land sales in Mogieland, will need STARS to do so. 

Buying NFTs with STARS rewards buyers with discounts and lower gas rates.  Occasionally, drops and other sales can be purchased with both STARS and ETH.  In such cases, products bought with STARS will receive a significant discount on their purchase as compared to using ETH.  This is our way of saying thank you for supporting the utility and benefits of our native cryptocurrency.

Aside from staking STARS in film projects, which we will get to shortly,  Mogul Productions runs its own staking programs.  Staking means locking your tokens in a staking pool to earn rewards  in the form of more STARS tokens.   Participants have the opportunity to lock their tokens for specified periods of time to receive a STARS reward rate defined by the pool they are entering.  The longer the lockup, the more rewards!    

Mogul Productions -Voting is Back - NFT Marketplace
Let’s Make A Film Together!  VOTING IS BACK

Stars is used for green lighting film projects

Mogul Productions is a decentralized film financing (DeFiFi) and NFT platform that connects creators, movie fans, and film financiers in one space to ensure the best films get made by giving everyone a voice. 

By leveraging blockchain technology and a tokenized system, Mogul incentivizes participation and rewards engagement. Through the use of STARS tokens, users can vote on, greenlight and participate in key decision-making aspects of production. 

Up to 50% rewards from Mogul-produced movies goes back to the Stars voting stakers

Quadratic voting promotes active participation in voting from all of the STARS token holders, regardless of their size, because each holder has a voice in the process. Small holders have a proportionally large voice; which in turn allows Mogul to gauge the sentiment across our entire community, and not just a few large holders!

That’s the premise of Mogul. Bringing power back to the crowd

Mogul’s production team and advisors are award-winning Hollywood veterans who have written, directed, acted in, and produced a wide range of films and TV shows. Our team reviews film submissions. 

Mogul then comes up with a shortlist of films to vote on based on the producer’s recommendations and expertise.   We’d present those films to the community. Then the community votes on what film they want to see turned into a cinematic release. 

NFTs campaigns are then custom-built for each movie.

Are you an indie filmmaker with a vision? Submit a project proposal for a chance to have your idea funded.  When you submit a project, our panel reviews it and the successful projects will be put into the showcase.

Fund Your Project

More Utility

Mogul is constantly building ways to add more utility to the STARS. This includes but is not limited to usage in new film and crypto projects, mores ways to spend the token on other platforms, and getting the token listed on other exchanges.

Supernovas reward STARS token holders

Mogul is always thinking of ways to give more utility to STARS.  Each time STARS are used for in-app activities, Mogul destroys a portion of the STARS used to complete the action.  

That includes:

  • Purchasing limited-edition NFTs that are only made available to STARS holders
  • Purchasing rewards with STARS
  • Submitting scripts for Mogul’s review

Here at Mogul, we call it a Supernova when a portion of STARS are permanently taken out of circulation, or burned.  Supernovas allow users to buy more NFTs with their STARS, as well as protect and reward our community of token holders. Supernovas are scheduled to occur on the third Friday of every month and more may be added as circumstances allow.

Mogul Partners with Beem to Drive Exclusive Content & STARS Adoption

Mogul Productions, a DeFi and NFT marketplace platform for the film and entertainment industry, is collaborating with Beem, which offers a web3 video live streaming and distribution solution.

The partnership will see Mogul’s native token, STARS, be integrated into Beem’s ecosystem. Beem users will be able to pay with STARS to consume Web3 content directly on the platform. 

STARS is the utility and governance token that fuels the Mogul ecosystem. It enables Mogul users to buy NFTs (non-fungible tokens) on its marketplace, vote on which film projects to get funded, receive discounts on purchases, earn returns for staking, and redeem exclusive rewards.

Beem is the place where content creators use advanced video and NFT tools to meet with their communities. For Mogul creators, the partnership will bring new monetization and community utility opportunities. Producers, artists and creators on Mogul can use Beem to partake in token-gated events, live experiences, and screenings. The collaboration will enable Mogul to monetize add-ons or charge streaming fees, including to users who don’t own NFTs.

Beem is fueled by its native token $Beem.  The platform supports a new generation of emerging creators, which focus on the ownership economy and value independence. Creators build real communities through direct relationships instead of renting audiences from social media platforms. The latter can be used to funnel new followers into a customized space that is fully controlled and owned by creators. NFTs empower creators by offering transparent and customizable monetization options.

With Beem, Mogul will further be able to meet the demands of the new generation of Web3 content creators, giving them the opportunity to leverage some of the best blockchain and NFT tools in the industry. One of the key achievements of the partnership is that NFT holders on Mogul can partake in token-gated events. For example, if a film that partnered with Mogul had a virtual meet and greet or BTS screening, NFT holders could verify their NFT on the Beem App and then interact with that content.

How can DAOs involve fans in filmmaking? Expert answers

Jake Fraser believes that DAOs can let fans get involved from the scriptwriting process to the selection of actors who will play in a film.

As more people begin to integrate Web3 technologies into entertainment and production, the use case for decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) in filmmaking has been highlighted in a Cointelegraph interview with Jake Fraser, the head of business development at the film-focused blockchain project Mogul Productions.

When it comes to DAO usage in films, a deeper level of fan engagement was highlighted by Fraser. As an example, the executive pointed out the involvement of fans in the production process, such as in creating the script, choosing stories and picking the location. He explained that: 

“DAOs come into play within the film industry by enabling the fans to become more involved with decision making through the whole script to screen process of making a film.”

Working with Mogul, I can see that really coming to fruition.” says Erick Tran, Chavvo founder and producer.

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.
