MovieShots Unleashes Nosferatu: A Halloween Digital Collectibles Drop
MovieShots, a leading company in licensed film collectibles, is thrilled to unveil its third exclusive collection, celebrating the 1922 cinematic masterpiece, “Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror” by F.W. Murnau. In line with the Halloween spirit, the collection will launch on October 31, 2023.
While an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, 'Nosferatu's' influence in the silent era is undeniable, standing as one of the very first horror films that laid the foundation for the genre. Consistently celebrated among the greatest films, 'Nosferatu' is honored on many top 100 lists, including those of Cahiers du Cinema and Time Out.
MovieShots presents the unique opportunity to own iconic moments from the movie as exclusive digital collectibles. Jan Leitenbauer, co-founder of MovieShots, said, "We aim to let fans own a piece of this historical movie in a way that resonates with our digital age, without harming the original film. Our goal is to honor, immortalize, and embrace film culture "
130 Carefully Curated Camera Shots Preserved as Digital Collectibles
Continuing its mission to breathe new life into film history and culture, MovieShots is taking a uniquely curated approach with its latest collection. In contrast to previous releases, which featured every camera shot from the film, this time, only 130 carefully selected shots from 'Nosferatu' will be transformed into digital collectibles.
Unlike previous collections, which featured stills representing camera shots, the 'Nosferatu' MovieShots are, in fact, the corresponding film video clips.
Even with 'Nosferatu' in the public domain, MovieShots prioritizes quality, aspiring to be the gold standard in digital film collectibles. Enhanced with detailed metadata like characters, costumes, and props, each MovieShot transforms from a simple digital clip into a premium digital collectible.
For about $99, enthusiasts can acquire this legacy using just an email and credit card. After the sell-outs of their "Run Lola Run" and "Laurel & Hardy's Way Out West" collections, with 1,401 and 555 pieces respectively, the 130-piece 'Nosferatu' set promises heightened exclusivity.
Building a Cinematic Community Around Collectibles
Beyond collectibles, MovieShots offers owners community access, event perks, and the ability to stream 'Nosferatu' on their site. Collectors can also use their accumulated seconds for community votes. Bernd Ranzenmayr, co-founder, emphasizes, "We're not just about digital collectibles; we're a passionate film community inviting everyone to own a piece of lasting cinematic art as a collectible."
