Digital content auctions have become all the rage alongside cryptocurrencies and it looks like director Quentin Tarantino is also getting into the NFT game to see if he can squeeze some money out of the growing trend.
The filmmaker revealed at NFT NYC (see video below) that he’s digitized original pages of his beloved Oscar-winning “Pulp Fiction” script alongside seven uncut scenes from the movie as mentioned in a press release that was circulated by outlets like CNBC.
“I’m excited to be presenting these exclusive scenes from ‘Pulp Fiction’ to fans. Secret Network and Secret NFTs provide a whole new world of connecting fans and artists and I’m thrilled to be a part of that,” Tarantino said in the announcement’s press release.
Quentin Tarantino isn’t the only filmmaker getting involved with NFTs, as David Lynch announced a collaboration with the band Interpol last month.
The Secret NFTs will be auctioned off in the near future and remains to be seen how much they’ll end up selling for.
NFTs are really only as valuable as people are willing to pay for them, it’s also unknown what the long-term value of this stuff will ultimately be and if buyers will ever really recoup their money or there will be a true increase in value as other real-life tactile merchandise does. Fans can easily get their hands on copies of “Pulp Fiction” scripts online and these scenes might be already in the wild, the idea is that the blockchain privacy aspect linked to the content is the valuable angle combined that Tarantino himself is authenticating the NFTs and putting his name on them.
Could we see a digitized NFT of the Bride’s sneakers or the Pussy Wagon from “Kill Bill” at some point? Maybe, but we’re not terribly sure how much people would be willing to spend on this sort of stuff and if Tarantino will push forward with more of these.
