Anthony Hopkins’ first NFT film debuts
The NFT film comes with a puzzle attached for buyers to solve
Zero Contact – the first feature film non-fungible token (NFT), which stars Anthony Hopkins – has proved a considerable success with bidders, with an NFT purchased during the live auction on 24-28 September now potentially worth in excess of $115,000 on the secondary market.
The complicated mechanism created by CurrencyWorks includes the first interactive NFT puzzle ever created, which is attached to the film NFT. The puzzle updates live as the puzzles linked to the one-off ZERO CONTACT Platinum Edition and 10 ZERO CONTACT Elite Edition NFT bundles are solved, ultimately leading to a prize hidden in the Zero Contact Universe.
Ahead of the film’s debut on Vuele, the platform also launched a sweepstake to win one of 100 Golden Tickets, which grant access to a variety of digital assets developed by CurrencyWorks, including signed film posters and behind-the-scenes footage.
Zero Contact film
The film, criticised as a “Covid/Zoom thing” by many of those commenting on its official trailer on YouTube, was directed and produced by Rick Dugdale and written by Cam Cannon.
Zero Contact follows five characters in different countries, who are connected only by their devotion to tech titan Finley Hart (played by Hopkins) but find themselves forced to work together to shut down his final invention, a machine that could either save the world – or destroy it.
The film also stars Aleks Paunovic, Tuva Novotny, Rukiya Bernard, Veronica Ferres, Adrian Holmes, Lilly Krug, Linda Darlow, Juliet Sorci, James C Burns, Chris Brochu and Martin Stenmarck.
