How far along are you?We've been filming for just over a year and have a bit more to go. We just started editing the film, while continuing to shoot. We look to have a first draft of the film by the end of Q2 2023. Our goal is to submit to a top tier film festival in the all.
How committed is the team to the project?FULLY! For the past two years we have engulfed ourselves in the world of art, Black Art specifically. We pride ourselves on seeing our visions through to their fullest potential and we are more passionate about this project than any other we have created to date. We can not wait to tell you about our plans for after the documentary is released!
What are the risks and challenges?Like all projects, nothing is without risk and there can be unforeseen delays in film production. However, our team consists of experienced filmmakers who have the energy and relationships to make things happen, the ability to succeed, and the creativity to solve any kind of problem. We'll do everything we can to stay communicative & keep all backers informed on the fulfillment of Art Melanated.
How many total membership passes will there be?The Genesis Edition will have a total of 555 total membership passes? Member holder will have the most access to future benefits as we scale.
What is the difference between the different levels?Each card is uniquely numbered from 1-555. Physical cards will all look the same. As far as the digital versions are concerned, beyond the color of the cards, the difference is in the rarity. While each card will offer tons of benefits, we imagine the more rare color cards will have increased utility over the long term. Please see the Membership page for a breakdown.
What are some other benefits planned for members?We have a ton of exciting benefits planned including exclusive member events, access to art, digital drops, film screenings and so much more! We plan to under promise and over deliver.
