With numerous entertainment IP creators entering the Web3 space, BEAM+ LAB stands out as the first decentralised film & entertainment universe that pioneers with its ground-breaking IP co-ownership and “4C” operation model – “co-create”, “community”, “collaborate” and “commercialise”.
Through their exclusive partnership with Mei Ah Entertainment, a listed entertainment and distribution company (SEHK: 391), BEAM+ LAB democratises and liberates over 600 movie IP archives and empowers Web3 communities to co-curate upcoming movie productions with Japanese animation studios.
Decentralised IP Model: Co-Creation and Co-Ownership
BEAM+ LAB reinvents traditional IP models by decentralising and dispersing IP decision-making to community members (e.g. voting and participating on character design, screenwriting and storytelling). By co-owning, co-creating, and contributing to the NFT’s IP growth, holders are rewarded with benefits online and offline. The innovative decentralised IP model allows holders to partake as co-creators and contributors, which allows them to commercialise their IP ownership (e.g. self-initiated merchandise sales and projects).
IP Revitalisation Project – CRYPTYQUES
CRYPTYQUES is a 7-part NFT collection by BEAM+ LAB in collaboration with Mei Ah Entertainment and Wing Shya, an internationally renowned award-winning photographer and director. With the success of the first drop “DESIRE”, the upcoming drop “FURY” will launch in Q4 2022 with Kung Fu as the underlying creative theme. A global creative call-out campaign will be launched to invite Web2 & Web3 (W2&3) artists to breathe new life to traditional IPs with cutting-edge art.
Animation IP Co-Ownership Initiatives
BEAM+ LAB’s partnership with Mei Ah Entertainment extends to its up-and-coming animation movie IP creation, which will be the world’s first animation movies with their IPs to be co-owned by NFT holders. NFT holders will have the opportunity to co-create movie narratives with Japanese animation studios and further commercialise the Web3 NFT IPs they own. IP co-creators will be credited and rewarded with W2&3 utilities (e.g. special access to movie premiers). The animation NFT project will launch in 2023.
