One More Question

Highlights from the conversation:A graphic novel [is] one of the few ways a single creator can create the entire productYou go to a meeting and they're just like "Cool art, kid – but what does this look like as a movie?"Once NFTs + Web3 happened. It was just like, well, maybe this is a more interesting way to launch a product?You can't one-to-one sell a product like you would in Web2, you have to create some kind of interesting gamificationI feel like a lot of stuff in Web3 is reverse – "Here's some art. Maybe I'll make a product, if you give me money"Everyone was treating it like a Kickstarter. And I was treating it more like sales distribution More about Ben MauroWorld builder. Character creator.

Episode 375 - Ben Mauro - Creator, “Huxley”

CG Garage

Is Huxley the new Star Wars? This week, Chris chats to Ben Mauro, the film and game concept artist who single-handedly created Huxley, a comic book set in a richly detailed post-apocalyptic sci-fi universe. Thanks to the power of NFTs, Huxley has evolved beyond the pages of a graphic novel into something far bigger, with a film from Marvel producer Avi Arad in the works, plus trading cards, a potential TV series, and much more.  Ben talks about the incredible journey of Huxley, from how he found motivation and inspiration to single-handedly create the comic book, to how NFTs have empowered him to focus on the project, to its exciting future. Ben also shares his savvy knowledge of how NFTs work and gives his thoughts on how big media franchises are cashing in on their astonishing rise, as well as explaining how to avoid rugpulls.
