The blockchain-based film financing platform Mogul Productions will host an NFT Livestream with Marvel and DC Comics artist Rob Prior on May 27 from 5 PM – 8 PM EST.
During the stream, celebrated leaders in the blockchain and film industries will discuss the sudden proliferation in the demand for NFTs. Some of the confirmed panelists include:
Dan Crothers – Co-Founder of ECOMI (VeVe Digital Collectibles), an app-based marketplace for premium licensed digital collectibles (NFTs).
Jon Karas – Co-Founder and President of Akoin, a cryptocurrency project created by Akon to help business owners and social activists connect and engage across the rising economies of Africa and beyond.
Ted Farnsworth – Co-Founder of ZASH Global Media and Entertainment, a network of synergetic companies disrupting the media and entertainment industry. Farnsworth was also the Chairman of Moviepass and other major projects.
After the discussion, Prior will burn one of his original paintings inspired by The Wolf of Wall Street and unveil its digital version as an ERC1155 standard non-fungible token. Mogul Productions will then auction the NFT on its platform.
Lisa Sun, Founder and President of Mogul Productions, said that the NFT Livestream showcases the upward trajectory of NFTs as they disrupt the entertainment industry. She further added that she was excited about the fact that the Livestream will mark the first time ever that a globally recognized comic book and film artist – Rob Prior – will burn his artwork live on camera to create its NFT.
Prior will also create two more art pieces live on camera and unveil his upcoming NFT drops. The first is a Marvel-inspired Deadpool rendition and the second is a Star Wars painting of Luke Skywalker.
