Cannes Film Festival enters the metaverse

Published

on

With Epic Games’ hit videogame Fortnite, Brut, Cannes’ new official partner, is bringing the world’s largest film festival to the metaverse.

The festival’s famous backdrop will be recreated in Fortnite

The festival’s famous backdrop will be recreated in Fortnite as part of the groundbreaking experiment, allowing gamers to experience Cannes through the eyes of three different characters: a journalist who will father material and conduct interviews; an actor who will do an audition with a major director, participate in a photocall, and walk the red carpet; or a director who will have to find the pages for a script that have been misplaced across the city, send them to a producer, and walk the red carpet. Other quests will be offered, covering more involved topics such as climate change and concerns of inclusion and diversity in the film business.

The virtual experience is one of Brut’s many tech-driven efforts aimed at making the Cannes Film Festival more accessible to a broader audience, especially younger demographics.

“It was critical for us to be able to steer the Cannes Film Festival into a format that future generations would recognize.” The world’s largest film festival should be accessible to everyone, and video game platforms are the ideal way to engage with this generation,” said Guillaume Lacroix, co-founder and CEO of Brut, a value-driven app with James Murdoch and François-Henri Pinault among its supporters.

“Brut has been honing its expertise in these new formats for months. It’s a logical extension of our dedication to new technology for us. “Brut is creating an exciting metaverse in which we’ll play a key role,” Lacroix continued.

With the cooperation of the city of Cannes, Vysena, a renowned French virtual map studio, has recreated an exact model of several parts of the environment, including the Croisette, the Palais des Festivals, and its famed steps.

The maps will boast the ultra-realistic, Brut-style visual and audio universe

Brut will also host a House of Artists during the Cannes Film Festival, bringing about 100 creators from across the world to the Croisette to meet high-profile directors, actors, and agents in small groups. Last week, the digital behemoth announced a collaboration with Emily Yang, a pioneering NTF artist known as Pplpleasr, to host a fundraiser on May 2. The USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which aims to encourage young female innovators, will benefit from proceeds from the sale of 75 NTFs.

ThirdEye to launch AR metaverse SNS

Published

on

ThirdEye, a global leader in Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence solutions, today announced the beta launch of a fully decentralized augmented reality social media network for consumers. ThirdEye’s AR/AI products have been successfully deployed in the Healthcare/Hospital, eCommerce, Telecoms, and Government/Military markets.

This free decentralized platform will give users control over their own user data, which will not be owned by a central entity

Users will also be able to place virtual AR objects in the real world, upload AR data, create friend groups, have AR calls with virtual annotations among friends, and buy/sell virtual goods/NFTs on a digital marketplace. In addition, there will be an app store where users can add and download third-party apps.

The advantages of this platform over existing social media platforms include the absence of banning/censorship because the platform’s code will run transparently on the blockchain, as well as the inclusion of AR/AI features for a more immersive social experience. ThirdEye’s technology displays relevant AR information using AI predictive analysis. Its remoteeye platform, for example, provides 40 percent operational efficiencies as well as environmental benefits.

“ThirdEye was founded on the belief that mixed reality and artificial intelligence solutions could change the way we work, consume news, and enjoy our hobbies. We’ve successfully developed and launched enterprise products, and we’ve received feedback about developing this platform for the consumer space so that users can control their own data “said Nick Cherukuri, CEO and Founder of ThirdEye. “The extended reality and AI industries have come a long way, allowing us to truly contribute to the metaverse’s construction.”

ThirdEye is a market leader in providing a complete digital end-to-end ecosystem of AI/AR products. ThirdEye develops apps ranging from games to enterprise applications, and its products are sold all over the world. AI/AR has the potential to change the way the world works, and ThirdEye’s vision is to contribute to the creation of the future.

New Salvador Dali art expo in the metaverse

Published

on

Before the internet, Salvador Dali conquered the world. Art fans will now be able to communicate with him in the metaverse. Thanks to the famous painter’s recent incursion into the metaverse, millions of art fans may now be able to enjoy the works of Salvador Dali without ever leaving their homes. A digital art exhibition of Spanish plastic artist Salvador Dal. The exhibition, dubbed “DAL CIBERNTIC” or “Cyber Dali for the English-speaking audience,” will showcase more than 200 of the artist’s works through the metaverse.

Visitors will be able to enjoy an immersive experience using virtual reality glasses, entering a metaverse where they will be able to create their own avatars and walk freely inside the paintings

Exhibition Hub, a company in charge of curating, producing, and distributing major exhibitions around the world, and Layers of Reality, an audiovisual production company specializing in creating immersive content, collaborated on the project. The digital interaction with the painter, who will use his voice to guide attendees throughout the journey, is one of the most realistic features offered by this exhibition. This new model of digital galleries offers something truly unique.

Jordi Sellas, executive director of the IDEAL Digital Arts Center in Barcelona, stated that the goal of the Digital Arts Center from the beginning was to create an exhibition that would be comparable to the “great Salvador Dali.” A dream that they may be able to realize with a project of this magnitude.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for art lovers, as they will be able to walk through Dal’s universe’s four spaces, which include the sea, the sky, the void, and the desert, immersing themselves for 15 minutes in his most striking works.

Although it is currently unknown which metaverse will host this project, it is without a doubt the first to “digitalize” the works of one of the world’s most important painters. We’ve already reached the point where art and the metaverse collide. Perhaps, in the future, the world’s top museums will be housed on the blockchain, democratizing access to world-class art to a wider audience.

NFSeed is a innovative NFT project

Published

on

The Sherwood Project’s first NFT is an acorn, the Oak tree’s fruit and a container for its seeds. The acorn is an united emblem of The Sherwood Project’s goal, radiating color against the background of a question. The Sherwood Project’s NFT, or NFSeed, will sprout like a genuine acorn.

Only 8333 NFSeeds are available. Holders may turn their NFSeed into a new, one-of-a-kind NFT, an NFTree, designed by an as-yet-undiscovered visionary. As NFSeed holders, they will have the ability to help choose the visionary, have a say in the creation of an NFT, have an effect on a film, and have unique access to NFT ideas hatched via The Treehouse program.

This NFT project’s NFSeed is not its final form. For holders, the NFTree visionaries, it is the initial step, the seed of a concept, a blank canvas

Every NFSeed has the potential to become an NFTree, a new NFT designed and created by a budding artist. The holder must determine whether or not to turn their NFSeed into an NFTree. In Q4 2022, the NFTree will be introduced.

The proceeds from the public sale of The Sherwood Project’s first NFT will be used to make a film. The documentary feature-length film, co-directed by The Sherwood Project’s creators, filmmakers Luke Dale and Matt Silverman, will capture every facet of The Sherwood Project’s DNA, from the hunt and finding of an NFT visionary through the Treehouse incubation program and the NFT ecosystem at large.

The film’s modest beginnings will be juxtaposed against the cultural pillars of web3, NFTs, cryptography, and art, providing as a definitive picture, a cinematic Polaroid, of this once-in-a-lifetime meeting of technology and culture.

The Treehouse is a project incubator for Web3 and NFT applications. For chosen NFT initiatives, The Treehouse will offer funds, coaching, and a built-in network of customers and supporters. Only The Sherwood Project NFT holders are eligible to apply to join The Treehouse.

Holders of the Sherwood Project NFT will get immediate pre-sale list placement on all Treehouse NFT projects, as well as airdrops, discounts, and other special offers.
