Why This Former Simpsons Animator Will Launch NFT Based Series
Mogul Productions announced the upcoming launch of a non-fungible token (NFT) series, called “The Mogies”. In association with CHAVVO Studios, a transmedia production team founded by former Simpsons animator Erick Tran, the series will be inspired by iconic Hollywood characters.
According to a press release shared with Bitcoinist, “The Mogies” series is a way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Hollywood sign being erected. The series will launch alongside a 1,923 NFT collection inspired by relevant personalities and characters of Hollywood’s history.
Award-winning studio CHAVVO and Tran seem like the perfect match for the NFT series. The studio has worked on major Hollywood projects and box office hits, such as The Simpsons Movie, and in series from the popular Avengers and Ku Fu Panda franchises.
In addition, Tran and his team have worked for important studios like Disney, Universal, Marvel Entertainment, Sony Animation, Cartoon Network, Fox, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon, and EA. Thus, “The Mogies” will be supported by a team with plenty of experience.
The series will narrate the adventures of these Hollywood-inspired icons. In the shows, these characters will be aliens with a need to feed on entertainment. The series and NFT collection will be expanded with its own Metaverse universe, Mogieland.
Erick Tran said the following on the upcoming NFT series and its metaverse:
Mogieland is a homage to Hollywood, to our favorite characters, actors, and movies that have made us. Mogul is set out to make this the very first NFT animated series and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them.
A Hollywood Metaverse Universe To Accompany The NFT Series
Mogieland will provide “The Mogies” NFT holders with access to own land, attend movie premieres and other red carpet events with their Mogies, and connect with other enthusiasts.
According to the release, this metaverse will be open to everyone, but only Mogies holders will “enjoy the unique experiences and privileges”. Erick Tran added:
Mogul has given us creative freedom to develop something original and special in this space. It’s great to see Mogul supporting creators and the animation community like very few others have. We are committed to this project and the NFT community. As a NFT producer we want to be a major player in the NFT space. Working with Mogul, I can see that really coming to fruition.
NFTs have been cornerstone assets in the increase of crypto adoption since 2021. Due to its use cases and potential, legacy companies have been exploring their application in multiple sectors with entertainment being one of the most promising.
In 2021, Vitalik Buterin, inventor of Ethereum, debuted as an actor in the NFT-based show “Stoner Cats”. This marked the beginning of a trend that has seen similar projects attempting to leverage NFTs potential to provide users with a unique experience and with a way to approach creators and artists.
At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) trades at $1,220 with a 10% profit in the last 24 hours.
