Coinbase Announced A Three-Part BAYC Inspired Film. Find Out How To Get Your Ape A Staring Role:
It was an insane day at the Bored Ape Yacht Club as Coinbase announced that it would be making a three-part BAYC inspired film.
“DEFINITELY SOMETHING,” the cryptocurrency exchange tweeted this afternoon. “We're creating an interactive three-part film featuring the @BoredApeYC & @apecoin communities. Come build with us! http://degentrilogy.com”
Coinbase’s trilogy titled “The Degen Trilogy” is a three-part film featuring BAYC members’ bored apes.
“Enter a ragtag bunch of Degen’s. Each with their own special skills and their own hidden objectives. All chasing the same goal—ApeCoin,” Coinbase said. “The obstacles seem impassible. Success seems impossible. And it’s beginning to feel like certain unseen figures are somehow behind the whole thing. From all across the globe, they’re summoned to Midtown Manhattan where things are becoming more and more chaotic by the second. To succeed, our adrenaline junkies and lone wolves must break from this world and start a new one. Where the imagination only scratches the surface of what’s to come. Because if they don’t make it, we’re not gonna make it. Here begins the era of the Degens.”
Currently, Coinbase is holding an open casting call to all BAYC members to find the best bored apes for their movie.
“Audition your ape for the chance to star in the upcoming film,” Coinbase wrote on the Degen trilogy website. “Make sure your ape’s bio has the “it” factor. A smash hit bio will let our casting director spot you in the crowd.”
While Coinbase did not say what traits or ape characteristics they’re looking for in apes, they did say that the selection process will come down to traits and bios.
“In our quest to cast ape cameos in the trilogy, selection hinges on ape bios and traits,” Coinbase stated in its FAQ section. “We need the right apes for the right moments, and our casting director will consider which apes best fit the film. Apes are not leading acts but do play crucial supporting roles to our five original Degen characters.”
Coinbase’s casting call will be open until April 13th at 11:00 am PT or 2: 00 p.m. EST. Ape owners are eligible to receive a licensing fee of $10,000 in ApeCoin or Bitcoin, according to the site.
While this casting call is only open to Bored Apes, the BAYC teased an open casting call for Mutant Apes in the next film.
"We’re stoked that Coinbase is making a film series featuring the BAYC community, the BAYC tweeted. "Bored Ape NFT holders, submit your ape for casting, details below. Mutants, don’t worry - this is the first film in a trilogy, and you’ll be getting your own casting call for part two."
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to cover the Degen Trilogy and bring you more information on the project. Stay tuned for updates.
