Web3 gaming and music company Gala has announced the launch of its new arm, Gala Film. Gala Film has partnered with Stick Figure Productions to present a feature-length documentary titled FOUR DOWN. The documentary based on the New York Times best-seller NOT WITHOUT HOPE, written by Nick Schuyler and Jere Longman, will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Steven Cantor.
Gala Film’s main strength is its ability to offer a ‘Watch and Earn’ mechanic through the same blockchain technology that underpins Gala Music’s ‘Listen and Earn’ and Gala Games’ ‘Play and Earn’ ecosystem. This gives fans ways to earn rewards through nodes and NFTs.
“The launch of Gala Film marks the beginning of a new era in Web3 entertainment, led by Gala. Our ecosystem offers exceptional involvement and access to new launches, with fans able to enjoy unique experiences, empower creatives and get rewarded for doing so. We are committed to delivering fan-first entertainment, where technology is used to improve fan experiences without ever becoming a barrier to entry or enjoyment,” said Sarah Buxton, COO of Gala.
Going forward, fans can take control of their entertainment through digital ownership and support new projects by voting on script choices or casting. Content creators such as Filmmakers and artists will also connect more deeply with and distribute their content directly to them.
With the launch of Gala Film, Gala will also be able to offer an interoperable ecosystem where fans can benefit from crossover content in film, music and gaming.
