Amazon recently launched NFTME, a new documentary series that follows NFT artists, collectors and big names in the industry. The show’s first season consists of six episodes clocking in at half an hour each. Currently, NFTME is available to stream for prime members in the UK and the US, with plans to launch globally sometime this year.
“Wondering what to #watch over #Xmas Weekend? How about our new #TVseries on #NFTs, #Crypto & #Blockchain that was #released only today on #AmazonPrime #US & #UK,” tweeted the series’ official Twitter account o Dec 24.
Directed by Jonny Caplan, the series focuses on the NFT industry. Production started in 2019. However, due to the pandemic, NFTME’s production team had to get creative, using AI Robots with Li-Dar sensors to allow Caplan to direct the series remotely.
“Dive down the rabbit hole into the NFT & Crypto industry, meeting influencers who tell us how it all works. Web 3.0 brings a new mindset, immense creativity, new technologies & new ways of doing business,” states the show’s description on Prime Video.
In the series, NFT enthusiasts share how NFTs have positively impacted their lives. NFTME features 50 industry professionals, such as Peter Rafelson and Cheryl Douglas, who explain the ins and outs of the NFT scene. Episode one even features Queen Diambi of Congo, who speaks about tribes in Congo’s interest in the Web3 space.
Episode two focuses on top creators, NFT events and the metaverse and features Refik Anadol sharing his experience creating NFT art with NASA and SpaceX. Later episodes tackle topics like gamification, social impact and tokenization. Prime Video members can purchase individual episodes for $2.99 or the entire series for $12.99.
The World of NFTs
Amazon’s choice to air NFTME is not surprising, considering the growing popularity of NFTs. Well-known brands such as Nike and Porsche offer NFTs, as do celebrities like Anthony Hopkins and Ja Rule. Even the popular children’s song Baby Shark is swimming into Web3, its upcoming blockchain-based game.
