Mei Ah Entertainment Group has partnered with Beam+ Lab to launch Cryptyques, a classic NFT collection themed around Hong Kong films. The collection is based on films authorized by Mei Ah Entertainment Group, a Hong Kong-based entertainment and distribution company. In fact, the company owns the majority of the IP rights to classic Hong Kong films. So let’s take a look at what the Cryptyques NFT collection is all about!
What is Cryptyque’s NFT Collection?
The Cryptyques NFT Collection aims to bring classic Chinese films into the Metaverse. Ultimately, the goal of the project is to create a community of film lovers, Web3 leaders, collectors and creators.
Acclaimed Hong Kong photographer and director Wing Shya is the creative director of Cryptyques. He has carefully curated the NFT collection in collaboration with a Hollywood production team known for their work on films such as X-Men and Transformers.
“Cryptyques delves deep into another technological milestone that improves the craft of cinematography – reinventing a form of artistry – of which we are proud.” said Shya.
How do I get a Cryptyques NFT?
The project will launch the Cryptyques NFT collection in three phases – past, present and future. The past phase will focus on seven emotions – desire, anger, fear, joy, bitterness, disgust and love. The project will release an NFT collection corresponding to each emotion, reimagined as one of the 1980s cult films by Mei Ah Entertainment Group.
The first collection, Desire, will contain 1,320 NFTs of 3D animated video clips. You can buy these as Mystery Boxes on the official Cryptyques website from June. There will be five NFT sets in the collection, with the fifth being auctioned off as a one-of-one NFT.
All in all, Cryptyques NFT is an interesting project for film enthusiasts. The final results remain to be seen.
