Fellowship Trust - Launching Daily AI Video Art Auctions

Monday, September 18th, at 13:00 EST
Daily auctions starting at .01 reserve

I was able to speak on a Twitter Spaces this week about curation. Many great examples were shared, but I had to highlight the work that Fellowship Trust does as a golden example.

Starting today, Fellowship will be doing daily auctions of AI video drops. The curation part I want to highlight is that they went DEEP sourcing the 30+ artists for this ongoing drop. This isn’t just alumni or the names that would normally come to mind. They of course drew from existing AI video artists, and previous Fellowship artists like Roope Rainisto and Frank Manzano, but they also drew from 2D AI artists who are expanding their wings. They found several artists who were active in NFTs but hadn’t minted anything yet (Puff Yacht is crazy good!). They also drew from some of the more popular (and skilled) AI video artists that had nothing to do with the NFT space like Nice Aunties! I am excited about this drop. If you are looking for a group that is going hard to expand the space and bring quality work to collectors, look no further. – Pop Punk

Daily.xyz is the platform where the auctions will be each day.

Strange History: Conquest - Open Call

Open Call - September 5th through September 28th

Strange History continues to be a hub for the AI space! ‘Conquest’ is their new video AI collection. The deadline to enter this Open Call is September 28th, but if 'History' is any guide (See what we did there!), get your submissions in early as winners may be announced on a rolling basis giving you more time to finalize your work. The theme and requirements are quite specific so do give the full Twitter submission thread a read in full. On the theme…

”Theme: Historical Conquests & Battles /
Style: Any Style AI Video

Think: What if we could go back in time and watch the Norman Invasion of England in 1066? Or a famous battle in history? Perhaps you can create a strange AI video depicting a samurai warrior or conquistador? Use AI video and let your imagination run wild…”

Full Disclosure: Pop Punk listed several pieces in Strange History’s SuperRare drop. He has also collected over a half dozen pieces from the various collections! He also just loves this whole community and is honored to be part of it! We definitely recommend for you to be a part of this creative initiative!
