Slick Films is an independent production company that Rachel Shenton, an Oscar-winning director, and Chris Overton will use NFTs to fund its new documentary. “Sticks and Shelter” is a documentary that follows Mick Donnovan’s life as a recovering addict and former professional drummer.
Donnovan lives at the Macari Centre, which is a non-profit organisation that aims to end homelessness in Stoke-on-Trent. Lou Macari, a former Manchester United legend, runs the Macari Centre, which houses approximately 50 people and provides shelter and meals. In the UK, around 271,000 people are currently homeless. Shelter estimates that this number is due to economic difficulties in recent years.
Sticks and Shelter is an emotional story about hope and friendship. To fund the project, it turned to NFTs in order to raise PS50,000. Paus is a Web3 media platform that allows filmmakers to finance and distribute films with non-fungible tokens. NFT owners can participate in the initiative to get a share of the revenues. There are four tiers of NFT that unlock exclusive rewards and benefits.
Rachel Shenton says “Stoke-on-Trent often gets media attention for all of the wrong reasons.” She continues, “While Sticks & Shelter demonstrates addiction and loneliness don’t discriminate. It’s also a hopeful tale of friendship, love and music.”
Chris Overton also shares the same sentiment. He says that Sticks & Shelter’s greatest driving force was Micky’s renewed passion for music and drums. I hope that Mickey will have another chance .”
