The American director who started his career with Reservoir Dogs back in 1992, Quentin Tarantino, is entering the NFT scene. Tarantino’s mega-hit Pulp Fiction has had a massive impact on pop culture since its release and inspired a sub-genre of its own. The director has announced plans to sell some of the film’s footage that didn’t make it to the big screen in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
Quentin Tarantino is auctioning off seven deleted scenes from Pulp Fiction as NFTs.
The 58-year-old director whose last movie was Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is auctioning off seven deleted scenes from Pulp Fiction as NFTs on the platform OpenSea. Each NFT will come with its own content that can only be revealed to its owner. According to Mobile Marketing Reads, the NFTs include the first handwritten scripts of the film and exclusive audio commentary from the maestro himself. Because of how NFTs are sold on the Secret Network blockchain ecosystem, Tarantino’s NFTs can be sold or rented in total secrecy for both the creator and owner.
“NFTs allow artists and audiences to build a more authentic relationship.”
Tarantino, who has made Oscar-winning movies like Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds, said, “The best artists and creators want complete control over how their stories are told and how they connect with their audiences … Secret NFTs represent a new kind of ownership and creative control that goes beyond what NFTs have enabled to date. They allow artists and audiences to build a more authentic relationship — one that is privately shared between them.” NFTs are digital collectibles that can take the form of any content stored on the internet, such as a PDF, GIF, or even a tweet.
