WE MADE OUR GOAL!!! This is HUGE. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We made this goal in less than two weeks - BECAUSE OF YOU! You are truly amazing, and you are the ones making this film happen.
But it's certainly not the end!
$60,000 was the bare bones, minimum amount needed to make this project. With each added dollar, the project only gets better and better. This is your film. These are your stories. Let's bring the film from bare bones to phenomenal.
We are setting our first "stretch goal" at $100,000.
We would love more funds to assist in the following:
Research, research, and more research
Traveling expenses to follow up on all research!
We want to have the opportunity to speak with experts to bring you a factual story. With your continued help and support, we will make this a huge success! Thank you, thank you, and thanks again for making this happen!

Billion Dollar Bully is an investigative documentary about Yelp that examines the claims by business owners of extortion, review manipulation and review fabrication. In this documentary you will meet business owners from across a broad spectrum, whose commonality is their allegations of Yelp's questionable business dealings.
For years, Yelp has been accused of unethical business practices, all of which Yelp vehemently denies and chalks up as conspiracy theories.
Business owners and consumers deserve to see arguments for and against Yelp's business tactics. After so much debate in the media, this documentary is long overdue.
However, your help is needed to turn this documentary into the quality production that it deserves!
With 50% of our project filmed, we need to raise money to finish production and take this through post production. Your contributions will go towards:
- Color correction
- Music composition
- Legal fees
We expect this film to be widely viewed, and we want it to look stellar!
Risks and challenges
Without raising the funds, we simply cannot complete this project. To ensure we do this on the tightest budget possible, the staff is not taking a salary so all money can go towards outside contracted work. We are confident we can produce a high quality, impacting, hard-hitting movie.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
