One Freaking Dollar: The Movie

$597

26

What can you do with a single dollar? Go get something from the cheap menu at a fast food joint? Print off 10 pages at the library? Make a movie? Wait what was that last one? That's right we are proposing to make a movie, and you can help shape the world, characters, dialogue, music, and plot for just a dollar. We are not just crowdfunding this film, we are crowdsourcing it. Meaning every backer gets to have a say in the finished product. So what do you want to see on the screen. Chip in a dollar and tell us!

Think of this film as a social experiment of sorts. What would a collective group of people want to see if they had control of their entertainment directly. Almost like a choose your own adventure book. We have made several short films and a few features in the last 5 years. Many have premiered at festivals all over the world and we won an award for best editing this year for our horror short "Judge Jury and Executioner" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5293092/?ref_=rvi_tt

I have great faith that we can get this film into a festival as well. We have a huge variety of rewards to choose from. If you want to write a line or set up a scene, it's yours. If you want your music or artwork in the film let's do it. Perhaps you want to be involved in the casting process? We'll set up an exclusive area on the website for you to watch audition tapes and provide feedback on who you'd like to see in the film. Maybe you just want to add time to the films length or be featured as a wacky crew title. Crew titles will be added as others are taken so there should be plenty of those to go around. Check out the add ons for those that want to bundle up and do multiple things. All backers will get a special thanks on the website wall of fame.

                           Lets talk about rewards

 *A note on the Help Cast the Film add on. We will record all of our auditions and invite those who pledged for this to a private page to view them and provide feedback on who should be in the cast.

*A note on all submitted materials. Everything must be in good taste and not demean or discriminate against any person or group of people. All submitted materials must also be wholly original and not infringe on the copyrights of any third party. All submissions must be approved by our staff. 

Risks and challenges

The film is funded as of backer #1. As this is an experimental film the amount we end up with at the end of the day is the movie you all choose to make. There may be delays or production mishaps but we are used to these sort of things and can work around them very well.
