Oscar-winning underwater cinematographer Roger Horrocks joins NFT boom


TL;DR Breakdown: 

  • Popular underwater cinematographer, Roger Horrocks, has collaborated with Oshen to release his first NFT series.
  • The NFT collection comprises photos and videos of “humpback whales,” also marking their first time of encountering a human.

Roger Horrocks, an award-winning underwater cinematographer, has now joined the non-fungible token (NFT) bandwagon. Following the growing traction in the space, Horrocks has collaborated with NFT marketplace Oshen to exclusively launch a collection of real-life photos and videos of sea animals as NFTs, starting with the humpback whales.

“All animals have an incredible life force, but how that is portrayed to vast audiences is up to us as filmmakers. There is a great deal of objectification in wildlife films where animals are very much shown as a symptom of humanity or represented in our image.” 

Roger Horrocks launches NFT series on Oshen

As a professional underwater cinematographer, Horrocks has worked with top media, including National Geographic, Disney Films, Netflix and the BBC, Blue Planet 2, and Our Planet. He is popular for many projects, including the oscar-winning documentary “My Octopus Teacher.”

The NFT collection from Horrocks, known as the “First Approach – Humpback Whale,” is a series of three photos and four videos of humpback whales. The footage was taken some years ago, and it captured the first time these whales encountered a human. Buyers can now own a unique and authentic digital copy of Horrocks’s first experience with one of the larger rorqual species exclusively on the Oshen marketplace. 

Besides Roger Horrocks, Oshen also features other NFT content from prominent artists, including the three times world big wave surfing champion Twiggy Baker, Matt Maxwell, and others. 

NFTs market keeps booming

The frenzy in the NFT space has only been getting stronger as more people continue to make sales in both the primary and secondary markets.

On Wednesday, Cryptopolitan reported that the secondary sales on the non-fungible token market have surpassed $10 billion for the first time and about  $20 to $30 billion when combined with the primary sales. The majority of the sales in the market were conducted on the Ethereum blockchain.
