The total amount raised exceeded the 750 ETH goal set on July 14
The feature-length documentary Ethereum: The Infinite Garden has completed its crowdfunding campaign, earning little under 1,036 ETH in just two days.
The First Full-Length Documentary on Ethereum
A feature-length documentary on Ethereum is in the works.
The documentary, named “Ethereum: The Infinite Garden,” aimed to raise 750 ETH (about $1.4 million) for its production, with 5% of the revenues going to carbon offsets and Gitcoin Grants to promote open-source Ethereum initiatives. Only two days after its July 14 debut, the project surpassed its 750 ETH financing goal, raising 1,035.96 ETH (approximately $1.94 million) from 662 supporters.
The project describes itself as a feature-length documentary film that examines the Ethereum blockchain’s innovative real-world applications, the passionate community of enthusiasts and developers who support it, and its creator, Vitalik Buterin, whose vision for the Internet potential to change the world.
With Vitalik Buterin and Aya Miyaguchi, Executive Director of the Ethereum Foundation, the project has already secured an exclusive filming partnership. Filming with the couple had already begun a day before the crowdfunding campaign went life, according to the project’s official Twitter account.
Several high-profile Hollywood personalities are also engaged. Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci of Optimist Studios will helm the film. The studio previously created the critically acclaimed documentary “Five Years North,” which will be released in 2020. pplpleasr, a digital artist whose work has appeared in “Wonder Woman,” “Star Trek Beyond,” and many DeFi ads for companies like Uniswap and Aave, has also created a series of promotional poster NFTs for the film.
The documentary’s casting and development are still underway, but it’ll be released in late 2023.
