OK, that’s a big statement. But have a look at the well-produced case study of Nazi-SciFi-spoof ‘Iron Sky’ that is hitting cinemas worldwide at the moment.
The German-Finnish-Australian co-production had about 75% traditional funding and manged to rake in the rest via crowd-sourcing and crowd-investing. More interesting from a creative stand point is how listening to the audience and working with the supporters led to a a quicker, yet visually high-quality production that was going to please the followers. At the same time it minimised the need for traditional film marketing. Now I am already liking the film for actor Udo Kier’s character name: Wolfgang Kortzfleisch. Probably the worst name in the history of film making. Check out one of the teasers below:
Great Article Tim. Love the Idea of Crowdsourcing and Crowd Funding for projects like these. Would be great to catch up again soon.
We should crowd fund one of your iphoneography photo trips, Alex!
I think you gave me an idea in regards to a mobile photography crowd sourced project. Might put a little proposal together for kickstarter.
Awesome, look forward to it! Please post the link here when it is up…
