Top Japanese Directors’ SUPER SAPIENSS Entertainment DAO Drops NFTs

Leading Japanese directors, Yukihiko Tsutsumi, Katsuyuki Motohiro, and Yuichi Sato are all set to drop NFTs from their SUPER SAPIENSS entertainment DAO. The project aims to usher in a new era of entertainment in Japan. SUPER SAPIENSS will launch the NFTs on December 17. Let’s take a closer look at what the SUPER SAPIENSS project is all about. 

The NFT creatives feature original artwork.

What is SUPER SAPIENSS?

SUPER SAPIENSS is a unique entertainment project from Yukihiko Tsutsumi, Katsuyuki Motohiro, and Yuichi Sato. The three directors have been at the forefront of the Japanese entertainment and film industry’s growth. What’s more, producer Takeshi Moriya has joined the project as a board member to create and visualize its original story.

In a first for Japan, the four will jointly produce and direct the project together with their fans. To be sure, in the team’s own words, this is a “super independent project made with fans”. As a creator-first project, SUPER SAPIENSS IP has immense use cases such as webtoon comics and movie creation. To make this a reality, the project will be co-created with the SUPER SAPIENSS entertainment DAO.

What are SUPER SAPIENSS NFTs?

SUPER SAPIENSS NFTs are generative art NFTs based on director Tsutsumi’s original character proposal. Manga artist, Chobi developed the artwork for both the NFTs and the SUPER SAPIENSS webtoon. Notably, the NFT creatives focus on Japanese culture, which is becoming increasingly popular across the globe. The project will use these NFTs as a fundraising and community-creation tool.

For holders, the NFTs offers a range of utilities. This includes commercial rights over the NFTs, with holders’ NFTs appearing in webtoons and/or live-action film productions. Additionally, holders gain early alpha about the project, the right to suggest ESP ideas for the project, and much more.

The NFTs will drop next month!

When is the NFT sale?

SUPER SAPIENSS NFTs will have both a pre-sale and a public sale, with only allowlist members allowed to join the former. A total of 1,093 allow listed members can mint the NFTs from 00:00 EST to 23:30 EST on December 17 during the first pre-sale. Here, 5,465 NFTs will be available, with a maximum of five mints per person. 

Next, the second pre-sale will go live between 00:00 EST on December 18 and 00:00 EST on December 19. Any NFTs unsold in the previous sale will be available to mint during this sale. Finally, the public sale opens at 22:00 EST on December 19, closing 24 hours later. Only 1,000 NFTs will be available for this. To clarify – the allowlist does not guarantee the right to purchase, but allow listed users can mint on a first-come-first-serve basis.

As the allowlist drawing is still underway, this is a great opportunity for you to apply for a spot. Head over to the project’s website to apply before the deadline at 10:00 AM EST on December 8. For additional details, make sure to follow SUPER SAPIENSS on Twitter and join its Discord server.

The Nieux Society Launches Mardi Gras NFTs with Special Privileges

The Niuex Society, a New Orleans-based Web3 company, has launched Mardi Gras-themed NFTs that offer holders special privileges. The carnival themed event kicks off on February 21, and Niuex has found a way to utilize NFTs to allow for special access. Therefore, for $160, you will get an NFT pass that allows you to access food and drinks.

In addition, the pass offers access to private parties, exclusive performances, special events, and even restrooms along the parade route. Interestingly, the latter has attracted ridicule online, as some people cannot fathom needing a pass to access the washrooms. However, you cannot underestimate the importance of finding a decent restroom in a crowded parade.

That said, the Mardi Gras-themed NFTs are made up of a collection of 5,000 AI-generated digital collectibles. These NFTs will be available for purchase later this week.

In a press release, Tim Williamson, co-founder and CEO of the Nieux Society, notes that “Nieux Society members used this cutting-edge technology to create a collective vision for Mardi Gras while utilizing NFT technology to provide holders exclusive access, benefits, and an ongoing invitation to join us on our journey to help New Orleans’ realize her full creative potential.”

I’ve got my “Show Me your Mardi Gras “NFT’s created with ai generative art and access to a front row seat for the Mardi Gras parade season! Check it out and see how to get yours below.. https://t.co/xoTs5GLkpy pic.twitter.com/P6LgKnKz4x

NieuxCo Mardi Gras Themed NFTs Are Nothing New

Because of their unique characteristics, NFTs are becoming increasingly popular as access passes. Last August, a restaurant in New York sought to use them for reservations, but they faced backlash similar to what the Nieux Society is facing for its Mardi Gras washroom pass. Some have even gone to the extent of describing them as grifters who are selling unlicensed securities.

However, it appears this use case is here to stay, as NFT passes make tracking and proving ownership easy. So far, there are several businesses making use of them, such as the Flyfish Club. Its NFTs offer holders access to top-end seafood restaurants. However, they don’t come cheap, as one goes for about 2.7 ETH.

NFT Funded Film Calladita Wins Top Prize At Sundance

An NFT-funded film, Calladita, has won the top prize at the Sundance film festival. The movie, directed by Miguel Faus, tells the story of Ana and “explores themes of class differences and injustice from a profound and sophisticated perspective, moving away from easy clichés and caricatures.”

Calladita is a Film3 type of movie that employs decentralized technologies to free and empower independent artists. In this case, Faus and his team financed the movie using NFTs, and by winning the Andrews/Bernard Award, it’s a dream come true.

The award was established in April of last year by Steven Soderbergh, a renown filmmaker, and Decentralized Pictures. To encourage independent filmmaking talent, he committed $300,000 in completion funds for notable English-language films and shorts, with the NFT-funded film, Calladita, representing the first film to win the award.

Speaking to Decrypt, Faus notes that Film3 represents the future of independent cinema and is the reason the movie exists. The award presented on Saturday had Faus beaming. He took to Twitter to express his joy, thanking the Decentralized Pictures Foundation, his entire team, and the more than 500 individuals who believed in his idea and bought the NFTs.

Decentralized Pictures is a non-profit organization that seeks to discover new and innovative filmmaking talent. The platform allows filmmakers to submit movie pitches by paying a submission fee in FILMCredits (FILM), its native token. Then, platform users get to vote on which ideas receive funding from grants.

According to Leo Matchett, cofounder of Decentralized Pictures, blockchain technology doesn’t only allow the platform to “fairly and transparently determine who deserves the financing the most, but also has this incentivized behavior mechanism built into it.”

What Does The Future Hold For Film3 After NFT Funded Film Calladita Won Top Prize?

That said, funding movies using NFTs represents a new frontier for filmmaking. So far, the likes of Spike Lee and Kevin Smith have utilized them to finance films and drive engagement. At a time when most people see NFTs as nothing more than speculative assets, maybe this is the kind of use case required to prompt mass adoption. Now it’s possible for fans to fund the next blockbuster and own a piece of its success.
