Gala has announced a new web3-based entertainment platform for artists and fans. Gala Film, a new service that was unveiled recently in the Galaverse Malta event that took place on 6th-8th June 2022, aims to provide true ownership to fans and filmmakers alike by leveraging the use of blockchain technology. Gala Film is the third brand of Gala after Gala Games and Gala Music with the same vision of enriching the web3 entertainment experience.
Gala Film is a new vertical under Gala that aims to overcome the challenges of the film industry with the help of blockchain technology. The platform will help filmmakers monetize content, earn money, reward fans and supporters, build a decentralized system to enforce intellectual property rights, and create a web3 entertainment ecosystem. Just like other platforms of Gala namely Gala Games and Gala Music, this platform will create unique opportunities for fans to directly involve themselves in script voting, casting, participating in fan-only events, and much more.
The platform will help filmmakers and artists directly connect with fans and understand what they want to see in films. It will also give a creative license to filmmakers by providing them the chance to distribute directly to fans without the presence of a middleman. The rewarding system is unique too. Instead of charging fans for streaming movies, the platform will reward fans for streaming and producers will be rewarded for bringing up new artists onto the platform.
Gala aims to build an interoperable ecosystem between Gala Games, Music, and Film by giving fans ownership of content used in films. This “Watch and Earn” model of Gala Film will help fans earn money by monetizing content in the form of NFTs. For example, if your soundtrack or music is used in a film then you can benefit from claiming ownership.
So, fans can benefit from overlapping content in all three domains. This is the core benefit of Gala Film as it will provide owners “true ownership” of their content wherever it is used. Despite being blockchain-based the platform will be easy to use for fans and NFT collectors. Users need not get into the complexity of blockchain and they can use it just like any other web2 platform.
