Laurel And Hardy To Have NFT Collection Now, Displaying Their Roles From "Way Out West"
Laurel and Hardy, the iconic comedic duo, will now have a nonfungible token (NFT) collection displaying their roles in the classic film “Way Out West” (1937).
It has been reported that fans can own a piece of the duo’s iconic black-and-white film, Way Out West. On November 28, 2022, the limited collection brought to you by MovieShots will officially go on sale.
However, a number of clips represent the collection. Each cut (clip) in the collection marks the end of one cut and the start of the next. Fans can be exclusive owners of clips, ranging from the very beginning to the very end of the classic film.
The report said that it is the digital equivalent of owning a piece of the original reel. MovieShots and Beta Film GmbH, the leading distributor of TV license rights, made this collection possible. The collaboration allows classic film lovers to digitally own 1 of 1 item and prove ownership through blockchain technology.
Founder Jan Leitenbauer said:
“Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy have etched themselves into our cultural memory and we are honoured to immortalize this cultural legacy in the form of digital collectibles on the blockchain.”
Thus, MovieShots is an Austrian startup whose main objective is to tie the worlds of film and NFTs together. The company first entered the market in May 2022 with its first film, “Run Lola Run.” Following the success of the collection, the company decided to release another classic film. The decision to choose Laurel and Hardy’s Way Out West film.
