Filmmaker David Bianchi trailers his Web3 series “RZR”

David Bianchi, an actor and director, held a public table reading for his new series “RZR” on Web3 on Monday night. He invited celebrities and other people to attend.

Bianchi thinks that music, movies, intellectual property, and even information systems will be linked to a blockchain mechanism in three to five years.

During table readings, which are a common part of making movies and TV shows, the actors, crew, and creative team listen to the script being read out loud. These reads take place on sound stages. Bianchi wanted a change to be made.

NFT concept in David Bianchi’s idea

During the event, Bianchi said, “What’s unusual about this [table read] is we’re making it public. In the spirit of decentralization, we’re doing everything out in the open; I am very confident in the material, I’m very confident in all of my partnerships.”

“RZR” shows a Los Angeles of the future with neural implants, a hacker culture, and crime on the black market. Grimm is played by Bianchi. He is a combat veteran and engineer who, like the netrunners in Netflix’s “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners,” uses neural implants to connect to the internet.

Bianchi said, “I always call it like ‘Black Mirror’ meets ‘Mr. Robot’ with a little ‘Children of Men’ sprinkled on top.”

Bianchi, who has worked on shows like “Resident Alien” and “Queen of the South” for Syfy and USA Network, says that he got the idea for “RZR” from a conversation he had with Gala Film COO Sarah Buxton in July 2022. Then, Bianchi wrote the screenplay for the series, put together a team, and made two “RZR” NFT drops.

Gala, a Web3 gaming and entertainment event, began in 2019. “RZR” is made and sold by Gala Film.

Sarah Buxton, the COO of Gala, told Decrypt, “We’re thrilled to work with David on this project, which stays true to our goal of giving artists, both established and new, creative power.”

This is the first movie we’ve made with Gala Film, and we’re looking forward to making more.

“RZR” will start filming next month. Noelle Hubbell of Gala Film (“Don’t Worry, Darling,” “Superstore”) and Claire Koonce of CAA (“Black Panther,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) will produce and cast, respectively.

“RZR” wants to build on the blockchain. Digital currency is used in “Cyberpunk 2077” and “Westworld,” but “RZR” focuses on non-fungible tokens and cryptocurrencies like Ethereum.

NFTs let collectors show in public that they own digital art, music, data, in-game assets, personal records, and other things. In recent years, film producers, musicians, and others have used NFTs to raise money for their projects and connect directly with fans by giving them a piece of the film or letting them meet the directors, cinematographers, and production designers.

“I think the ability to have an immutable technology that can create scarcity, and that can’t be manipulated, broken or destroyed, is absolutely fundamental to the film and entertainment process because intellectual property has always been a problem,” he said, adding that blockchain freed him from a side job.

NFTs promote community

Bianchi said that that “RZR” is fully funded and that the NFTs were given out to encourage community and participation, not to sell them ahead of time.

He notes that most independent filmmakers sell NFTs on projects that are just a guess. You sell a lot of NFTs and hope to make a good movie or show with the money. you hope it is strong and spread out.

Bianchi says that his movie has been approved and that Gala Film and a “big” streaming service will distribute it.

“We’re offering something much more attractive and much more lucrative to our NFT community and our potential holders,” he said.

Bianchi said, “I found that the blockchain and NFT community is highly influential, they’re sophisticated, they’re tech savvy, they’re young, they’re hungry, and they’re interested in high art. All those things combined, I think, make an incredible, delicious gumbo for what blockchain potential is for film.”
