The first NFTs to fund a film one frame at a time.
ORNAMINTS ARE THE DISRUPTIVE NEW NFTS UPENDING HOLLYWOOD
But they're a whole lot more than that, too!
Our initial drop is the first step toward the creation of a year-round metaverse that authentically celebrates world cultures and amplifies the voices of independent creators everywhere. And your OrnaMint isn’t just a slick digital asset, it’s your ticket to join Walk Off The Earth and EDH Animation and ACTUALLY be part of the whole journey from start to finish!
Walk Off The Earth is the hugely viral, platinum-selling indie pop/rock group who have sold out headlining concerts in more than 50 countries and notched over a BILLION views on their YouTube channel alone.
EDH Animation (co-founded by Ornamental creator Ross Venokur) was established in 2018 with one mission: to disrupt the way that movies are financed, produced and distributed and level the playing field for independent creators everywhere.
Each OrnaMint is a unique, hand-drawn digital collectible with a dynamic animated background that will change throughout the year. The OrnaMints collection will live on the eco-friendly Solana blockchain which also happens to offer the fastest transaction times in the world.
When you BUY an OrnaMint, you get:
OWN A PIECE OF THE MOVIE!
Upon completion of the movie, all token holders will receive an airdropped U-DAC (Unique Digital Animation Cel). This is not just some gimmicky 2nd NFT — it’s a first-of-its-kind digital asset and it’s going to change the way animated films are financed in the future!
ETERNALIZE YOUR ORNAMINT!
We’re going to run a contest to include several OrnaMint cameos in the film. PLUS, every single person who mints on day 1 will get a credit in the movie!
GO BEHIND THE SCENES!
OrnaMint token-holders will have exclusive access to monthly behind-the-scenes livestreams on Discord featuring members of Walk Off The Earth, EDH Animation and some very special guests. We’re going to show you exactly what progress has been made on the film each month, provide a glimpse of where we’re going next and introduce you to the whole cast and crew of Ornamental. Q+A sessions, physical redemptions and surprise airdrops will all be happening monthly as well!
VIP METAVERSE ACCESS!
OrnaMint holders will be granted first access to The HolidayVerse and enjoy an elevated "Founding Member" status that will include an assortment of VIP perks, gifts, and event invites.
BE IN THE MOVIE!
Ornamental will star the members of Walk Off The Earth, but it could also star YOU! We’ll be casting all supporting roles within our OrnaMint holders community, and the community will decide as a group who gets cast. No voice acting experience required!
TELL YOUR STORY TO THE WORLD!
Ornamental is the first story that we want to tell in The HolidayVerse, but the next one that we tell will be decided by our token-holders. Since The HolidayVerse is a celebration of ALL our holidays and cultural celebrations, it’s the community who will decide what we're all celebrating next! Once we identify the subjects of subsequent holiday books and animated films, we’ll be passing the mic and collaborating with REAL members of those within our communities to help them share their stories with the world.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
We're building our very own metaverse called "The HolidayVerse", and Ornamental is just the first of many groundbreaking projects that we have in store.
With The HolidayVerse, we want to bring the world closer together and celebrate humanity through the spirit of the holidays - ALL of our holidays.
We have the vision, we have the experience, we have the story...heck, we even have the rock stars!
Grab yourself an OrnaMint this holiday season and let's make history together.

After over two decades in the entertainment business, and having written for nearly every major studio and network, Ross Venokur pivoted his attention in 2013 to the indie animated feature world because he saw an opportunity to disrupt the traditional filmmaking process. After directing two original features, including CHARMING (Sia, Demi Lovato, Avril Lavigne, Ashley Tisdale) which premiered globally on Netflix earlier this year, Ross co-founded EDH Animation Co-op in 2017 to continue to upend traditional production. As half of the team behind “John Cleese Sells The Brooklyn Bridge NFT” (March 2021), Ross recognized a huge opportunity to leverage his new book Ornamental and the Year Round Holiday Universe it imagined into a truly mainstream family project on the blockchain. Ross is currently wrapping production on his third animated feature, THE SILK ROAD RALLY, (Jimmy O. Yang, J.K. Simmons, Chloe Bennett, Lisa Lu, John Cleese - wraps production early 2022), which he also wrote.
Walk off the Earth is a Juno Award-winning multi-platinum musical phenomenon that was thrust onto the international stage in 2012 and continues to take the world by storm. In the past couple of years alone they’ve headlined the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater and Wembley Arena, sold out the historic Sydney Opera House, notched a top-10 single in Canada for 30 straight weeks, and made it all the way to the top of the Pop Album chart in the United States, notching billions of online views along the way. Since the group’s inception, WOTE has continued to push the boundaries of what an artist can and can’t do. Locked down with the rest of the world due to Covid-19, WOTE pivoted and commenced production of a new animated series called “WOTE In Space!” The chemistry between band members Gianni, Sarah, and Joel continues to exhilarate fans all across the globe.
J. Gonzo is a Chicano artist. His formative years were shaped by the rigid tradition and Byzantine iconography of the Catholic school he attended juxtaposed with the DIY aesthetic of the late 70s, Orange County Punk counterculture peppered with the bright, bold, Latino hues of his grandparents’ generation. After attending a terrible trade school for a degree in Graphic Design, he tattooed professionally for years before entering the world of advertising and design. Gonzo has spent the past 25-plus years using his creative skills at ad agencies, toy and comic companies, design studios, freelancing, and creating his own comic book title La Mano del Destino, as well as handling art duties on La Voz de MAYO: Tata Rambo for Top Cow/Image Comics.
Pete is a veteran open source developer. He has been building for the web since 2005; he co-founded a full-service digital agency; and he has engineered solutions for numerous Fortune 500 brands. Naturally skilled in turning around development projects, improving team productivity, and creating dynamic solutions, Pete brings his unique skillset to everything he touches, including several sellout NFT projects on Solana, where he’s investing most of his focus these days because of his passionate belief that Solana can be the blockchain that delivers value and ease of use to the masses, all while doing no harm to the environment.
Adam is our marketing guy! He’s here to help spread the word about this amazing project while helping us build a community that can help bring it to fruition. After originally having a background in engineering, he fell in love with the possibilities of the marketing world and became immersed in it. First in the “Web 2” marketing realm, where he excelled at selling products online, building communities, and driving data-driven results. And now in the “Web 3” metaverse he’s here to help us take this project mainstream while doing so in a way that spreads awareness to the Solana system as a whole.
Ornamental is a book-turned-film project that will be the first of many groundbreaking community-driven projects to live within The HolidayVerse.
An OrnaMint is the name of our NFT - the driving force behind Ornamental!
An NFT is a unique digital asset with ownership verified on a blockchain. While many NFTs are a digital piece of art only, OrnaMints are full-fledged social tokens that offer a wide variety of exclusive perks and benefits to holders.
A blockchain is a publicly-accessible digital database containing information (such as financial transaction records) that can be shared and utilized within a decentralized network.
The HolidayVerse is our very own metaverse that will aim to spread year-round holiday spirit through cultural education, inclusion, acceptance and awareness. We intend to commence production on The HolidayVerse in early 2022 so long as we’re able to meet our Ornamental funding target!
A metaverse is a digital environment driven by shared virtual experiences. Land, avatars, clothing, accessories and other digital assets can be bought, sold (often using cryptocurrency) and displayed in the metaverse.
The HolidayVerse is for everyone! It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa or Diwali (and those are just the big December holidays) - there’s a place in the HolidayVerse for you. We want to create opportunities for everyone to learn about the wonderful traditions around the world that they may not have known much about prior, and we’ll be engaging our community every step of the way. Early access will be given exclusively to OrnaMint holders with general public access starting in Q4 of 2022.
