According to recent NFT news , Sir Anthony Hopkins, the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Oscar-winning icon of film, television, and theatre, has partnered with Web3 media company Orange Comet for an upcoming series of NFT drops showcasing his work as an artist.
The Eternal Collection is a three-part project centred on a set of ten digital animations of Hopkins digitally rendered as interpretations of various Jungian character archetypes he has portrayed throughout his career. Hopkins’ work as a painter is also incorporated into their designs.
The tentative release date for OpenSea is September 16.
The collection’s theme, which Hopkins collaborated on with the Orange Comet team, inspired the project’s name. The animations, which feature hyper-realistic digital renderings of Hopkins’ face, depict the archetypes of the Hero, the Rebel, the Magician, the Sage, the Ruler, the Explorer, the Lover, the Creator, the Giver, and the Jester. They will be between 30 and 45 seconds long. Each of the ten animations will have a separate release of 100 PFP variants of their respective Jungian character theme, for a total of 1,000 NFTs in the PFP portion of the drop.
Orange Comet will also auction off a one-of-a-kind NFT, a one-of-a-kind edit of all ten character animations combined into a single piece. Hopkins will donate a portion of the auction proceeds to a charity of his choice.
