On August 17, Orange Comet, an arts and entertainment company that focuses on NFT minting and promotion services, announced its partnership with renowned Hollywood actor Sir Anthony Hopkins to launch its first NFT collection.
Orange Comet says that this will be the first batch of “The Eternal Collection” NFT series, which will run for 3 days. During this period, collectors will have access to more than 1,000 unique images of the actor based on different archetypes.
Anthony Hopkins’ interest in Nfts began with his film Zero Contact
Hopkins’ interest in creating an art collection immortalizing his film career grew after the release of his film Zero Contact as NFT in Fly. Such was his interest that he even asked Snoop Dogg for advice before making his first purchases from him.
Fly is a Web3 creative studio platform that allows you to view and collect limited edition feature films and NFT content.
In an interview for Yahoo Finance, Hopkins said that “NFTs are a blank canvas to create art in a new format.” She emphasized that NFTs allow for the reciprocal sharing of artistic inspiration with others no matter how old they are.
“I’m probably the oldest guy in the NFT community and on social media, which just goes to show that anything is possible at any age.”
According to Dave Broome, CEO of Orange Comet, the collection will launch in mid-September at OpenSea. It will feature 10 of Hopkins’ most relevant character archetypes, such as Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs” and Odin from Marvel’s “Thor.”
The collection represents the different facets of the artist’s film career
The Hopkins Collection was created to allow fans and collectors to visually appreciate the many facets of the actor’s career.
Orange Comet CEO Dave Broome said it was a challenge to create a collection that stamps all of the art Hopkins has done throughout his career.
“These are projects of great pedigree and opportunities that will always stand no matter what happens, and that is what we hope for here. […] We think it’s a good time actually because of the appetite for some of this hi-fi with this kind of iconic talent. It’s about intellectual property, art and brands, and bringing Hopkins as an artist and as a brand to the world.”
Those who attend the first day of the auction will be able to meet the artist at a welcoming ceremony and luncheon and will also be able to take home an autographed art book by Hopkins.
On the third day, 1,000 unique images will be auctioned off and 39 autographed Hopkins art books will be randomly distributed to buyers with an intimate look at his works and poems. Additionally, 5 buyers will be selected to join a video call via Discord with the actor.
