EXCLUSIVE: Mogul Co-Chair Gorav Seth on How His Platform Is Helping People Connect with NFTs and the Future of Digital Market

Non-fungible tokens, popularly known as NFTs, have — thanks to their ability to assign value to everything from movies to music to Elephant art — taken the world by storm.

In that race, Mogul Productions, a DeFi and NFT marketplace platform for the film & entertainment industry, has achieved a lot and secured great results over the years, partnering with various producers and animators.

In September 2021, the NFT platform released NFTs and deleted scenes from Reboot Camp. In October, The Legacy Collection: Portraits of Stan Lee was available for auction.

Similarly, in November, Mogul partnered with Chavo Studios, the animators of The Simpsons, Rick and Morty, and other celebrated series, to create the world’s first character-driven NFT series, Mogies.

To discuss all of that, the co-chair of Mogul’s film finance, Gorav Seth, recently spoke with GLAMOUR BUFF. He talked about his experience with Mogul, his thoughts on NFTs, and the future plans he has with his team.

Arun Katuwal: How long have you been working with Mogul Productions?

Gorav Seth: I’ve been working directly with Mogul for over a year but have been familiar with the project since its inception.

AK: Who is associated with the platform as other founders/heads? Or anyone you would love to specifically mention from the company?

GS: Lisa Sun is the founder/head of Mogul.  We also have a great leadership team that has been involved from the start, including Paul Sparkes (co-founder of Difference Capital), David Cormican (award-winning producer), Lyriq Bent award-winning actor), Cindy Cowan (Emmy award-winning producer), etc.

AK: How Mogul Productions is an easy option for people looking to get a film or any other NFTs?

GS:

  • It’s a DeFi/NFT platform targeted for the entertainment industry that participants can utilize in conjunction with their existing marketing strategies to build an audience of engaged fans, drive viewership and generate new streams of revenue.
  •  Mogul has a large user base and audience that are very supportive for those who engage in the various social media platforms.
  • Anyone looking to leverage the power of NFTs / DeFi can work with Mogul who can provide bespoke, white glove experience, and navigate the crypto landscape to ensure impactful and effective NFT launches.

AK: What do you think – is the concept of digital collectives is evolving. If yes, how is your production contributing to that progress?

GS: NFTs are the next evolution collectively where individuals can get a digital certificate of authenticity verified by the blockchain for everything from static art to motion video and music.

We are providing artists and creators to utilize our platform and marry conventional forms of their artwork with NFTs and blockchain.

AK: And while your company gives a platform for people to work around NFTs, NFTs is still something new for many people. So would you elaborate on how you describe NFTs in general?

GS: NFTs or non-fungible tokens are nothing more than a digital certificate of authenticity. Specifically, it is a unit of data (any digital content) that is stored on a blockchain, which is a form of a digital ledger. Each NFT represents a real-world object such as music, video, or a piece of art.

AK: Also, what value/gain can a new creator obtain from the NFTs?

GS: The value for a new creator is typically driven by the amount of effort, marketing and engagement with the crypto community.

Similar to building a social media following and audience for a project via Instagram or Facebook, artists must market and engage with their audience.

NFTs are no different and can garner massive community engagement and huge sale prices if done right.

AK: Are there any disadvantages/losses for an original creator after they sell their products’ NFTs?

GS: Not in my opinion.

AK: Now, with experiences of working with teams like “Chavo Studios,” and partnering with various producers and animators to produce NFT series, what things you and your team are looking forward to achieving in the coming days?

GS:

  • Mogul, as a DeFi/NFT platform, is moving into the metaverse.
  • We wanted to do something really big that would pay homage to Hollywood and commemorate an iconic event for the industry.
  • As such, we launched the Mogies initiative which is the creation of 1923 unique 3d CGI characters that will be metaverse compatible.
  • 1923 was significant because it was the year the Hollywood sign was created.
  • We are partnering with different metaverses such as Ceek to build unique experiences in films and TV i.e. being able to walk into a studio in the metaverse, sit down in a virtual theatre and watch a film that was created to be viewed in the metaverse.
  • We have a number of exciting partnerships that along this theme that will be announced shortly.

AK: Is there anything you want to tell an aspiring creator who is unsure to partner with Mogul Productions?

GS:

  • There are a lot of platforms out there that can help you ‘mint’ or ‘create’ your NFTs – that’s easy.
  • What’s different about Mogul is that we will help creators navigate the space and understand strategies they can take to ensure a successful and optimal outcome for their NFT launch.
  • We are also the defacto place to help filmmakers and creators help fund their projects.

Tony Lopez has been in his fair share of controversies since he has been active on TikTok. He and his brother Ondreaz have been accused of grooming minors and sexual assault.

Recently, Lopez’s former wife, Sarah-Jade Bleau, allegedly accused him of cheating. The two began dating in October 2020 and got married in March 2021.

However, their marriage did not last long, and the two filed for divorce in November 2021. According to TMZ, Bleau cited “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for divorce.

Regardless, they reconciled for a few months before calling it quits for good. Over a year after their divorce and breakup, Bleau has started speaking up against her ex-husband.

Recently, a trend going on in TikTok called the mascara trend. Here, people refer to their former partner as “mascara” and then talk about the traumas they faced in their relationship.

Bleau recently jumped on the bandwagon and uploaded a TikTok where she applied mascara. She wrote, “I am scared to buy a new mascara, my old mascara broke my lashes. Now I feel I can’t trust any mascara but I hope I’ll find one to love and keep forever.”

They noted that she stood beside Lopez and her brother when it was proven that the two were grooming minors. Similarly, when Lopez was accused of sexual assault, Bleau did not speak against her ex-husband.

As a result, many claimed they did not feel sorry for Bleau since she knew better about Lopez when they were married.

Allegations against Tony Lopez

In 2020, Lopez was accused of molesting two minors —  H.L. Doe and C.H. Doe. They sued Lopez in a lawsuit acquired by PEOPLE for attempting to compel them into sexual encounters.

They also claimed Lopez sought pornographic images from them while he knew they were minors. The TikToker allegedly knew that the girls were underaged yet groomed them.

The lawsuit stated —  “This case arises out of injuries suffered by minor Plantiffs as a result of Defendants’ illegal acts after they were lured, persuaded, coerced, and groomed to either engage in physical sexual acts and/or send illicit and obscene child pornographic images of themselves to Defendants.”

Lopez denied the allegations and claimed he never sent nudes to the woman and did not ask for them either. He added that he would never get intimate with someone if he knew they were underage.

He said, “This whole thing seems like a money grab to me. I’m going to fight it to the very end. I will not allow them to continue to slander my name and attack my character.”

Medical Expert Decides If Annie Bonelli AKA Scar Girl’s Scar Is Real or Fake

“It doesn’t become a dark eyebrow on your cheek,” the medical professional remarked sarcastically.

Medical Expert Decides If Annie Bonelli AKA Scar Girl’s Scar Is Real or Fake

Annie Bonelli, known as “scar girl” by many TikTok users, has been questioned about her face scar for almost two years.

The long, linear mark on Bonelli’s cheek has altered in shape, color, and length over time, but in recent months, internet speculation about whether or not it is real has reached a fever pitch.

Finally, Dr. Kohan, a board-certified medical professional with years of training and experience, has weighed in on the ongoing controversy surrounding Bonelli.

After thoroughly examining her scar, Dr. Kohan determined that the scar might be fake and made a sarcastic remark. 

In a video posted on teatoktalk, Dr. Kohan said that a typical scar changes color from pink to red, gets a little darker, and eventually disappears over months.

“It doesn’t become a dark eyebrow on your cheek,” the medical professional remarked sarcastically.

His professional opinion may not be taken lightly by all, but it’s important to remember that medical professionals are not infallible, and everyone has their own opinion.

It’s crucial to respect and understand the journey of others but also to question and verify the information and opinions provided, especially regarding medical matters.

Annie Bonelli doesn’t care what others think about her scar

The #ScarGirl hashtag has generated millions of views. Many of these clips have accused Bonelli of using makeup to darken her scar in frame-by-frame analyses of her videos.

She acknowledged that she didn’t think these responses were “right,” but claimed to have “thick skin,” and realized that daily social media posting resulted in criticism.

The TikToker said, “I feel like on social media people get so comfortable, especially with influencers in general, to make comments on things because they don’t always view them as real people. Like, I’m a real person,” during an interview with NBC News.

Bonelli claimed she avoided talking about her scar until recently when people started showing greater interest in it. 

The influencer has been received with hatred and doubt by some viewers in the comment section of her videos despite her attempts to address the allegations around her scar.

In a recent TikTok video dated January 12, 2023, Bonelli claimed that she got her scar in March 2020, when she was 15 years old and a junior in high school.

However, she objected to providing specifics because it was a very “personal matter,” during an interview with BBFs podcast. After a few months, the scar started to disappear, as shown in several of Bonelli’s June 2021 TikToks. 

But according to her, in late 2021, when she tried to adopt a topical treatment to lighten her original scar, the scar got worse. She asserted the topical caused a chemical burn that resulted in a fresh wound over the scar.

People think Annie Bonelli is faking her scar for clout

There has been a lot of talk and controversy surrounding Bonelli and her scar. Some fans believe that Annie is faking her scar for attention or “clout.”

A fan commented, “I know I said this before, but whether it’s fake or real, she’s getting hella clout.”

The following comment read, “nothing can make me believe that scar is real.”
