The Potential Impact of Web3 Technology and NFTs on the Film Industry with Heidi & Joshua Gillman

In this episode of From the Blockchain, Ashley (aka Bored Becky) is joined by special guests Heidi and Joshua. In 2021, Heidi and Joshua joined the creative team behind NFTtheMovie with the ambitious goal of revolutionizing the movie industry. Although their film was denied when they submitted it to the Sundance Film Festival, they saw it as a valuable learning experience to improve their craft before showcasing it to the world. This marked the beginning of "The First Family of Art in NFTs." 

Joshua, who has been painting since 2007, took a leap of faith in late 2020 by quitting his job to pursue art full-time. Joshua and Heidi sought guidance from a professional coach, which helped them gain clarity on their true desires in life. Meanwhile, Heidi runs a successful Etsy shop where she creates tutus and outfits. 

Curious about what big brands were doing, Heidi and Joshua decided to venture into the Web3.0 space with augmented reality after being introduced to NFTtheMovie through their community. Despite initially feeling intimidated by the technology, Heidi immersed herself in research and soon became fluent in it like a second language. After leaving Miami, Heidi and Joshua reached out to Jeff Crane and made the decision to invest in NFTtheMovie.
