Interview with ‘CeREELs (Chungdahm Media)’ in K-verse
Please briefly introduce yourself.
Nice to meet you! I’m John Kim, in charge of business development at Chungdahm Media.
I’m fascinated by short-form content that combines music and animation and the growth potential of CeREELs IP. So here I am to promote and expand CeREELs IP based on my experience in animation production and distribution.
Please tell us more about the company / how you found out about The Sandbox?
Chungdahm Media is producing ‘CeREELs,’ an IP animation brand with more than 40 original stories. One series includes about 5 episodes. You can watch them on our YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CeREELs.
Every content is in English, and the series has various IPs. We have signed a global publishing company ‘Scholastic’ that has published famous novels such as ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘The Hunger Games’ series, to publish books with our IPs. Also, we are gaining global recognition via transmedia as music, long-term series, metaverse, games, webcomics, and NFTs.
Each IP has unique characters, stories, and universe, which generates excellent synergy in the metaverse. This is the reason we have asked for a partnership with The Sandbox.
We were very attracted to The Sandbox while we were preparing for the partnership since The Sandbox creates a true creator economy based on blockchain technology, DAO, and Web 3.0.
What you are planning to show on your LAND. What kind of experience users may expect?
We are building a CeREELs ecosystem where the users watch animations via YouTube, read books, listen to music, own NFTs, and enjoy the metaverse in THe Sandbox.
One of the appealing points of the metaverse is you can bring your imagination to life. When 2D animated CeREELs characters are implemented into 3D voxelized form and provide another experience and fun to the users, it would be more charming. Thus, we plan to create new experiences with IP and music.
How the content will be shared with your community. Would there be a special way to participate in the content on The Sandbox?
Suppose the users can create CeREELs’ characters in voxel by themselves and convert costumes, items, and wearables to NFT. In that case, the collection value will increase as well.
How do you hope to see your neighborhood (both your LAND and its surroundings) evolve in the future?
K-content power is everywhere these days. We expect many LANDs, including K-drama, K-pop, etc. We are still thinking about what could make CeREELs LAND different from the others.
CeREELs LAND could be a Social Hub where the users can meet many IPs in one place. Adding a bit of casual game here would be much better, I guess.
What is the most exciting thing about this LAND sale?
I personally participated in previous LAND Sales, but it was so competitive that I failed to purchase LAND. From now on, all the LAND Sales including K-verse LAND Sale will be based on the Raffle system so that every user can have a fair opportunity. This is the most impressive and exciting point for me.
Please feel free to tell us if you have anything more you want to say to the users.
The Sandbox continuously offers many benefits to the users and LAND holders via events and experiences!
Please look forward to the voxelized CeREELs IP as well!
