We are pleased to announce that Phantasma will be collaborating with Magnum Opus Pictures on the first ever movie to launch charitable NFTs: Beyond the Neon.
Magnum Opus Pictures, founded in 2019, is a new digital media & film production company with a focus on socially impactful content. Leveraging early exposure to blockchain technology, the Los Angeles-based organization investigates, develops and funds new projects worldwide. Magnum Opus Pictures creates “content with a cause” for an increasingly decentralized world.
A gripping story guided by hard truths
Beyond the Neon is a gonzo-journalistic narrative feature that follows a dangerous social experiment, performed by an amateur film crew exposing human sex trafficking in Las Vegas. The film is currently being packaged for distribution and anticipates a 2022 release.
This project has been in development for many years through undercover work, researching the sex trafficking trade in the Las Vegas area. Though Beyond the Neon is a fictional story, many of the elements in the film are based on true accounts within the human sex trafficking trade.
In parallel with the release of the film, Phantasma and Magnum Opus Pictures are creating Smart NFT collections related to the subject matter of the movie. These Smart NFT collections will serve to both promote the movie and fund charitable initiatives supporting services and organizations assisting those affected by human sex trafficking in America.
Pre-screenings of the film resulted in over 70% of audience members stating that they would likely support charitable initiatives aimed at helping those affected by human sex trafficking. Magnum Opus Pictures believes that Smart NFTs are the next fundraising frontier and can be a sustainable funding force for non-profits around the world, likely to become a cultural norm.
Phantasma is proud to be involved with Magnum Opus Pictures and their quest to help those in need through socially responsible film making and fundraising for charities. This partnership further establishes Phantasma’s Smart NFT technology and its use within the movie industry. Stay tuned for the release of the Beyond the Neon movie trailer.
For a better, more socially responsible world
