One of the first ever live-action series, ‘RZR’ (Razor), is set to be released exclusively on the blockchain through Gala Film, the latest extension of the Gala entertainment company. Acclaimed actor and filmmaker David Bianchi (“True Story’’ Netflix, “Resident Alien” Universal / Peacock) and founder of blockchain film production company Exertion3 in partnership with web3 entertainment giant Gala is executive producing and starring in the original series.
The eight-episode blockchain drama is a gritty, sci-fi thriller exploring the chaos of a not-so-distant dystopian Los Angeles. RZR is currently in pre-production and will premiere in 2023. The series is set in a world steeped in neural implants, hacker culture, and black-market crime.
“RZR, the Genesis Gala Film drop is paving the way for web3 cinema driven by community engagement,” shares RZR creator David Bianchi. He added, “Film3 NFTS are still very new and experimental in many collectors’ eyes. We dropped on the news break day of the FTX scandal and moved 25% of the supply is a testament to what is to come (not just at a community level) but for Film3 as a whole. We are creating a new way to experience cinema and build community involvement in the cinematic process.”
