Spanish director Miguel Faus successfully garnered $750,000 to create the world’s first NFT-funded European movie ‘The Quiet Maid’ before recently securing a global sales deal with the Iberoamerican entertainment powerhouse, FilmSharks, during Madrid’s Iberseries conference.
Initially 15 minutes long and entitled ‘Calladita’, The Quiet Maid revamps the tale of a Colombian maid working for a wealthy Spanish family in Catalonia.
The movie’s success story draws from Faus’s novel funding plan of utilizing the original 15-minute short movie to sell NFT passes. Attracting more than 600 investors to the film’s undertakings were Calladita NFTs granting behind-the-scenes access and allocating control of the film’s future gains through a DAO.
Further assisting the film’s production was a $100,000 investment from the famed ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ director Steven Soderbergh in conjunction with Decentralized Pictures in January.
