Crowd-Funding For Better Movies

Jessica Mae Stover has come up with a pretty nifty idea to fund her movie, ‘Artemis Eternal‘. Cut out the middleman and let the people fund the movie.

The idea is simple enough: visitors get to follow the entire process. Contributions for the film range from $1+ with the contributor getting an online credit for the contribution, $25+ gets the contributor a credit in the film, and $100+ gets credit in the film and Wingman status that offers name credits on the silver aurum, the development map on the front page of the movies website. So far the project has raised $40,000 of the $100,000 required to produce the movie.

Micro-funding and Crowd-funding has been picking up steam mainly due to the ease of the transaction through the internet. I can’t really think of a better industry to relinquish its powers back to the people than Hollywood… well, maybe the music industry.

Donations and ‘crowd-funding’ are near the core of most of today’s popular internet media outlets like Podcasts and Internet TV studios. Just outside of in-media advertising. Personally, I’d much rather live in a world where interested parties fund projects up front rather than everyone being subjected to advertisements in the end product.
