The NFT Drops
Captured Moment: The Master’s Process will consist of two NFT drops: one for Process photos, which reveal the delicate behind-the-scenes construction that’s involved in the production of a Master work, and one for 1/1s of the aforesaid Masters.
The Process Series
- Six Process pictures of each star, with 30 unique images in total
- Each Process piece will have a different rarity (150, 100, 50, 25, 10, 5)
- A total of 1,700 Process Series NFTs will be available for mint
- The Process photos will be revealed December 5th
Each NFT in the Process Series will cost 0.05 ETH to mint.
Holding a photo from the Process Series will permit you to join Auerbach’s upcoming NFT photography Discord—focused on the hottest conversations in NFT photography and style—and allow collectors to bid in the Masters Series auction.
The Master Series
Each celebrity will have their own NFT set, including:
- A dynamic NFT highlighting different aspects of the Master photo, by displaying various edits of the image at different times of day
- The high-res digital photo NFT of the Master (one Master per featured star)
- A high-res and autographed print of each Master photo (framing is optional at an additional cost)
- A unique video NFT of the behind-the-scenes interview detailing Auerbach’s creative approach, from Process to Master
The minimum bid for each photo in the Master Series will be 3 ETH.
A separate auction will be held for each set. The auctions will begin on December 17th.
One Master buyer will win a private photoshoot with Frederic Auerbach, valued at over $12,000, in Los Angeles.
Auerbach Gives Back
Auerbach will donate part of his proceeds from this project to Farm2People, an LA-based non-profit working to create equity in the food supply chain by supporting local farmers and food-insecure communities through regeneratively grown produce. Read more here.

3. You can bid on the Master Series auction on December 17th for the rarest pieces in the collection.
Curse Ticket holders were the first to be informed about the whitelist through Discord, and so the first to have access to the top 1,000 slots.
They will be the first to have access to mint the Process Series collection.
Curse Ticket holders will also receive an exclusive animated NFT from the collection after the auction has ended.
Collectors who signed up on the whitelist will be able to mint an NFT from the Auerbach Process Series on December 7th at 5pm PST. Each ETH address will be able to mint up to 10 NFTs.
The whitelist will be tiered by time, as follows:
- First 15 minutes; 5:00-5:15 PM PST: Only Curse Ticket holders will be able to mint.
- Next 15 minutes; 5:15-5:30 PM PST: First 1,000 collectors who signed up for the whitelist will be able to mint.

- After 5:45 PM PST, all other collectors who signed up for the whitelist will be able to mint.
Each Process Series NFT will be numbered in the order of minting for that specific image, making every “print” unique. You can print yours out and put it on your wall, or use a digital frame to display it.
Owning a Process Piece does not entitle the owner to use the image for commercial purposes, other than reselling the NFT.
The first airdrop will happen on December 6th. The top referrer drop will take place later, prior to the Master Series auction.
