Mondo is all set to dive into NFTs featuring its signature film franchise collectibles. The alternative movie poster maker is bringing out the big guns on its debut NFT Collectibles on VeVe App. On July 23-25, during [email protected], fans and collectors can bid on artworks from blockbuster film franchises Back to the Future and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
Back to the Future and Bill & Ted’s 2D NFT Artwork
The Texas-based entertainment hub for collectibles is known for commissioning world-class illustrators and artists to remake classic movie posters based on fan-favorite movies and TV shows. Thus, its artworks have become incredibly sought-after collectibles and pieces of memorabilia. Building upon its expertise, the initial NFT offering from Mondo will feature 2D artworks inspired by two fan-favorite classic films.
Mitch Putnam, Co-Founder & Creative Director of Mondo, shared why VeVe is the best app to partner with for their debut NFT series. He said, “We’d been looking for the right partner in the NFT space for the better part of the year, and we couldn’t be happier to land at VeVe. From the very first time we talked, it just felt right. We are so excited to be part of their thriving community, and we look forward to many releases together.”
Tom Whalen originally designed and produced the Back to the Future poster for Mondo in 2015. For this NFT Series, Mondo is auctioning 1985 editions with a listing price of $65. Movie buffs regard Back to the Future as one of the greatest films of all time so it’s a classic collectible.
Meanwhile, graphic designer and illustrator Matt Ryan Tobin created the Back the two Bill & Ted’s movie poster up for auction. First, Mondo is minting 1989 Editions of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure for $65 each. In addition, there will be 1991 Editions of the second poster titled Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
Commenting on the NFT drop, David Yu, CEO of VeVe, said, “Bill & Ted is an iconic comedy franchise and represents the type of brands VeVe is proud to be partnered with.”
