The Age of Stupid – the brilliant new film about climate change and why we all need to wake up to it, crowd sourced funding – for the film’s production and distribution. For a while now, in the States, A Swarm of Angels have also been funding films via their group of business “angels” – everyday folk like you and me! A Swarm of Angels is a open source feature film, and participatory filmmaking community. Its a new kind of film process and movement pioneering extreme collaboration & digitally-native cinema.
You can also read more about crowd sourcing funding for cultural projects via this blog post I wrote on the subject last year, and there’s more examples and a great discussion about it on David Parrish’s Creative Enterprise Network.
