Support creators with Web3
Visual Voice Co., Ltd. and Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting LLC of the Deloitte Tohmatsu Group announced on the 25th that they will start offering a creator support platform for the Web3 era this spring.
We plan to start providing it in June 2023 at the opening of “Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & ASIA 2023)”. The beta version will be released on April 27th prior to this.
This platform “Visual Voice Asset Platform (VVAP, tentative)” is the first in Japan to use the Web3 service environment “InfuraNFT API” provided by ConsenSys, which is known for the development of Ethereum (ETH)-based cryptocurrency (virtual currency) wallets. that is to be introduced.
The Visual Voice Asset Platform is centered on distributed storage that allows creators to permanently store content as assets, and mainly supports creators with the following functions.
- Portfolio that can post works created by creators
- An NFT (non-fungible token) marketplace that enables the buying and selling of film screening rights, etc.
- Film festival entry function
- Matching creators and companies
- Permanent Movie Theater by Online Metaverse
- Supporting communities and DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) that connect creators and fans
By using these functions, it is possible for creators to promote and monetize their own content without contracting with a video distribution platform.
What is the Metaverse
A multiplayer 3D virtual reality world built on the Internet. You can enjoy various ways using avatars. For example, the in-game metaverse called “The Sandbox” provides voxel art creation tools and game creation tools, allowing users to create their own games and facilities.
Deloitte provides legal and other support
Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting of the Deloitte Tohmatsu Group, which has a wide range of knowledge in the fields of accounting, legal affairs, and taxation, will support the creation of the creator economy (creator economic zone) with respect to legal and tax matters related to monetization.
Masato Sase, President and CEO of Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting, said that the development of a new platform that “opens up the future of creators based on new technologies and values” overlaps with the company’s slogan, “Lead the way.”
Visual Voice representative and actor Tetsuya Bessho commented as follows.
Now is the time when the concept of the NFT Global Cinema Market announced at the 2022 film festival is finally realized.
With the birth of a platform that fulfills the wishes of creators from around the world who gather at film festivals, we can see the future of cinema in the Web 3.0 era.
“NFT Global Cinema Market” is a project launched by Visual Voice in 2022. By connecting creators around the world with companies and individuals through the NFT market, we aim to build a “system where profits continue to be returned to creators” and “a system where anyone can become an owner or user of movies”.
For example, by visualizing funders with NFT, it is possible for individuals to participate in movie production, and it is a stance to realize the form of content production created with fans.
Discussion on “NFT and Film”
Visual Voice Inc. was established in 2006. Develops the short film brand SHORTSHORTS, and produces screening events, work distribution, and work production, mainly for the international short film festival “Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia” (SSFF & ASIA).
