Collect NFT’s to gain access to the most exclusive and immersive cinematic experience in the history of motion pictures



THE NFT PROJECT

WHITEPAPER


BASED ON

VALUABLE IP RIGHTS

The NFT productions are based on IP from the international best-selling literary universe of Louis Masterson. A prolific author who published more than 70 short stories and 150 original book titles. 

Masterson created an extraordinary universe featuring hundreds of stories and iconic characters, including title characters such as Clay Allison, Jesse Rawlins and Morgan Kane to mention a few. 

Over decades, fans have absorbed and collected the many editions published, resulting in more than 25 million books sold — and counting.

The rights-holder, Aktor Ltd. has entered into license agreements with Masterson Motion SL to adapt book titles and short stories where NFT Motion will be produced alongside major theatrical features and episodic series —  all in production with Kamara, an innovate entertainment conglamorate based Europe. 

Before we explain NFT Motion, we’ll take a look at the big picture –


LARGE FORMAT

PRODUCTIONS

The book, Clay Allison: Tomb of Gold, originally published in 1976, is currently being developed and produced as a feature length motion picture by Kamara.

It will have a run time of approx 2 hours, to be released in theatres around the world, and also made available on streaming. That’s basically how motion pictures are made and distributed today.

At the same time, Kamara is producing Quartet of Death, an episodic streaming series, based on certain short stories, whereby Clay is the title character of the first episode.


CROSS-OVER

CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

This means the character (and same actor) will helm the cross-over entertainment experience between movie theatre and your screen at home. This is rare to see, for reasons often set by talent and their representatives — who tend to have talent performers be featured exclusively in one format or the other (see history of TV vs. FILM division within ent. industry). 

In this case, Kamara is offering audiences a broader experience. Now, Clay Allison, is title character of another 13 books as well as short stories published by Masterson… Other characters have even longer story arcs, much, much… longer. 

It would take more than a lifetime to tell these stories in stand-alone film productions — as one (1) book is the equivalent of approximately one (1) episodic season or feature film.  Any traditional approach to this material, would mean iconic stories be left on the screenwriters floor — never reaching the screen.
