LAUNCHING IN 2023
Discover, collect and invest in short films from some of the most talented film makers in the world.
Short film has always been a pure expression of directorial voice. It can be a proving ground for narrative and formal exploration. It can be a statement of creative or social purpose. It can be a proof of concept for ambitious long-form projects. And it has produced artifacts of enduring cultural value.
But this important work has rarely delivered economic return to its creators. That’s because short film is neither suited for traditional distribution nor for wide online viewership. And given the relatively high cost of production, this disparity is effectively a throttle on accessibility and creativity in film as a whole.
The rise of NFT art and digital ownership makes it possible to unlock this latent value for the first time, by turning short film into a collectible — and investable — asset.
Weirdo is a “web3”-powered short film platform that creates new financial opportunity for filmmakers, and new ways for fans, collectors and patrons to participate in the medium.
Ultimately, we believe that if talented filmmakers can make meaningful income from film’s most accessible format, there will be a wave of creativity that pushes storytelling forward.
Weirdo is currently assembling a diverse group of experienced curators and talented directors, who support the mission and provide the first “slates” of short film drops.
- Experienced curatorial advisors
- Established and emerging filmmakers
