Woodies, the ETH-based NFT series and Web 3 entertainment brand, is announcing a new short film called “Woodies Origin” on YouTube. In this way, they consider themselves the “Pixar of Web 3”.
The ‘Woodies Origin’ film
To describe, the Woodies series is setting themselves as a Web 3 storyteller with their new short film, “Woodies Origin.” The new film shows how NFT artistry can be transformed into films in the classic style. The film lasts for 3 minutes and is a journey that reveals the unique and mystical origin story of the Woodies.
Arden is the last tree left in the grove after a lumberjack cuts down all of Arden’s tree friends. Thereafter, thanks to a magical Earth guardian spirit, Merkel the Mother Tree, Arden becomes a Woodie, mobile and free to go on a search and rescue mission to find his friends and stop the Lumberjack.
In fact, Woodies co-founder Richard Powazynski says, “The story runs via everything we do, storytelling is one of the oldest forms of communication. As a purposeful project with an environmental focus, it made sense that Woodies would have a strong story”.
He added: “Currently, the animated short film Woodies Origin helps us tell our story in a new and appealing way by bringing our beloved characters to life and also allows more audiences to be a part of the Woodies world”.
Additionally, you can watch the teaser of the film via the Woodies YouTube channel.

Brought to life by the art team, containing concepts by Des Lucrece, base designs by Jae-838, and stylization by featured artist Gossamer Rozen. What’s more, each Woodie was randomly created from a combination of more than 900 features, turning each one into a uniquely attractive 1-of-1 design.
Generally, when it was released, it sold out in 30 minutes. The project planted 1,000,000 trees with the non-profit organization, Trees for the Future. Their donation of 73,824 ETH ($217,000 at the time) was among the top 10 NFT charitable donations.
The Woodies community has grown rapidly. It has been regarded as an inspiring force of collectors and contributors with a shared mission to experience and preserve the outdoors. They share the vision of the developer of the project, UltraDAO, a decentralized collective created for artists. Together, they identified the need for a web 3 brand to start with a complete story and world-building capabilities. This is followed by more entertainment content, which adds extra value to the project’s unfolding story arc.
