Five Lions DC, launching on 8 November, is a project we have seen recently with an interesting utility that is looking to progress into animation series and movie. The most exciting part of this project is that the artwork and animation are created by Silver Ant – an award-winning animation studio that has wide present in Southeast Asia and Japan.
Five Lions DC is a collection of 8,888 unique NFT conveying the values of Traditional Chinese Lion Dance. To perform Lion Dance, one must possess faith, trust and confidence–especially since it must be performed as a team.
The project has a few milestones for the community to constantly participate in developing an IP together.
i) Crowd-driven animation series
ii) Development of Animation Movie
iii) Celebrity-coloration Lions
iv) Free 2D to 3D upgrade
Yes, you heard it right! You can have a free upgrade of your NFT from 2D to 3D. This is what the animation studio does best – development of animation characters & 3D renderings. NFT owners can create a storyline featuring their own Five Lions NFT and have the community to vote for the best storylines. Winning storylines will then be developed into short animation. NFT owners can also have their Five Lions NFT acts in the animation by participate in their Lion Dancing Academy and Dance Floor Challenge (We heard that the lucky owners can have their name displayed at the end credits too!).
At the same time, the project is also going to collaborate with international celebrities to release future limited-edition and even selecting a few lucky winners to have their lion signed by the celebrities.
The project is based on Solana network. They have recently announced a crossover with Jupiter Exchange. The team said more collaborations with other Solana communities will be announced soon!
Being one of the rare projects that empowered by Traditional Chinese values and elements, we are looking forward to the launch of the project.
