The Making of Women Unite: The First-Ever Human NFT

T

Earlier this year I was asked to go and help produce the Women Unite NFT collection. I worked on the production side doing final checks, ensuring every model had the right costume, make-up and props immediately before their photo was taken.

Initially, we created a collection of 2,222 stunning photos but they were all so unique that we extended the collection to 10,000 pieces. On some days we were pushing over 1,300 photos per day and it was non-stop. You can read about the history and the project on the Women Unite NFT website which also has links to the NFTs available on OpenSea.

Below are the behind-the-scenes videos showing the “making of” the project and featuring yours truly. So, if you need somebody who was nicknamed “the continuity king” to help with your next production, you know who to call!

If you’d like to join the Discord community and find out more about the WU Original Collection, the WU 10k Assemble, the Treasure Chamber, the Super Creators Assemble, the forthcoming WU Forgotten Warriors and the 108 Circle tokens (and all the utility associated with each), you can join us in Discord here.

    About me

    About 40 years ago, I discovered role-playing and Dungeons and Dragons in one of the after school clubs. It revealed a universe that allowed me to flex my storytelling muscles and enjoy a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi and feed the escapist dreamer inside.

    Over time, I played (and story-led - marked with *) many systems including Call of Cthulhu*, Shadowrun, Dungeons & Dragons*, Middle Earth, In Nomine*, Bushido, Chivalry & Sorcery, Chill, Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Gammaworld, Hawkmoon, Stormbringer, Immortals*, Marvel Super Heroes, Paranoia, RuneQuest, Vampire: The Masquerade*, and a couple of systems my own devising (Medieval* and Parody*).

    I explored live-action role-playing – eventually running my own club and creating my own LARP systems (Fools Gold and Dream Conquest) – and usually found myself in script-writing or game-master duty, writing over 500 individual live adventures over the period (usually weekly), many linked into the world events of the fantasy land we created. I also volunteered for Curious Pastimes and Lorien Trust at their main LARP events (special effects at the Ritual Circle), and did a little script work, cameos and improv for Curious Pastimes. I was also the South East's Editor (UK) for the LARP magazine The Adventurer. The biggest event I ran was a 10-month modern-day "murder mystery" LARP set around parts of Kent where characters were "always-on" and could get updates and interactions at any time outside of scheduled events. That was in the 1990s.

    I was also the artistic director for English Heritage for their live Halloween Horrors events at Fort Amherst in Kent from 1998-1999.

    Now, I write as the mood takes me with occasional competitions and challenges, and this year (2020) I will be taking on #NaNoWriMo.

    Here's to the future!
