SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – September 14, 2022 – Art Tokyo Global (“ATG”), a Singaporean company, has announced the completion of SHIP – the world’s first immersive NFT art film. Using user interactivity techniques, the film sets a new milestone for the film industry, allowing viewers to interact with the film in theaters or from the comfort of their homes.
Featuring 221 NFT artworks across 14 stages, SHIP showcases the work of over 80 emerging and established Asian artists. Among these is a unique collection of 5 works of art – Shizuku Shizuku by renowned Japanese artist and architect, Mr. Kengo KUMA, who was included in Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2021.
The film seamlessly blends the genres of art, graphics, performance, music and technology into a cohesive experience. Viewers will be treated to a multi-sensory exhibit of cutting-edge NFT art, a spectacular soundtrack, moving stories of humanity, and even have the opportunity to purchase the artwork that features in the film directly from their seat. Aimed at both connoisseurs and new fans alike, SHIP presents an exciting new cultural experience and opportunity in the entertainment industry.
The film introduces new cinematic techniques, such as advanced volumetric photography to construct virtual spaces from images taken by 2D cameras. During the film’s production, the director used 150 to 400 cameras to film each scene to provide an immersive experience as a vehicle for rich visual storytelling.
SHIP’s narrative draws on the speculative geological theory of Amasia – a coming together and merging of continents into a single entity in the distant future, emphasizing the importance of seeking connection with others and meaningful cross-cultural dialogue in our increasingly fractured present. According to Mr. Naohiko KISHI, President and Executive Producer of ATG, “In this film, viewers become a crew member of a ship that transcends time and space. Set across Greece, Egypt, China and Japan, SHIP navigates viewers through a history of beauty and the conflicts humanity has repeatedly caused; where cultures have flourished on each of the five continents separated by a single mass continent 250 million years ago, conflicts followed.”
The world premiere of SHIP is scheduled for late November 2022 in Singapore, and a worldwide public release is scheduled for early 2023 in cinemas and on streaming platforms.
