You know how people raise money for a movie they're going to make? We've already made it--and we'll release it to EVERYBODY for free!

FEATURE FILM. DONE.

We know--a lot of people are raising money through crowd funding like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but here's how ours is different.

We've already finished the movie. We paid for it ourselves, and went out and made it. We're not asking you to help us fund something that may never get made. It's finished.

If you want to see it, put in a buck or two...it's like paying a rental price on a movie that you'll OWN...

Now we want to harness the power of the internet and the torrents to get this movie out there everywhere.  If we can recoup our budget--which will entirely go back into our next film--we'll release this movie everywhere. WORLD-WIDE. FOR FREE.

We know $52,000 sounds like a lot. It's not when you consider we shot a feature-length film on a Red One for that(The Red One is a professional-level camera used for films like "Pirates of Caribbean", "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", "Dredd" and more). But we know it seems like a giant figure when you look at it.

But with the millions of people on the internet who torrent videos and watch them on Youtube/Vimeo, it really boils down to this: a lot of people each contributing a little. We're out to prove that there are ways outside of traditional distribution to get your movie distributed to the masses.

And if you contribute even a $1 and we make the goal, you will have helped EVERYONE in the future see it for free!

The film will be in hi-def on Youtube(watch it on your Xbox or Internet-enabled TV/Blu Ray Player) and Vimeo, PLUS we will seed it in Blu-Ray and DVD-quality on the torrents! If there are other video sites worth uploading it to, we'll do those also!

Note that some of the Kickstarter money will be used to author/encode/burn the Blu Rays to fulfill the rewards.

WHY?

I know another question you may have is "Why?" Why give your feature film away for basically what you made it for? Why not go with a distributor and get the movie out traditionally?

First, the reality is that it takes an average of 2-3 years for the distributor to actually release a film once the contracts are signed.

And second, it could then take 5 years before a filmmaker starts seeing revenue, depending on the deal you've gotten. (and in most cases they won't see any money since distributors have very creative accountants)

So a big plus is the speed at which we'll be able to get this to the viewers.

I'd be lying if I didn't say that this scares the pants off me. Giving my movie away for what we made it for? Putting it out into the internet for free, where it will remain forever, with no chance at getting any foreign deals at all?

Scary stuff.

But another part of me is thrilled at the newness. I don't think it's been done before--I've certainly never seen it. Perhaps it's a viable source of distribution in the future.

And getting it out to everybody right away...as a filmmaker one of the reasons you make films is that you're hoping people connect to your story the way you do. You want to hear from the people who "got" it...even if you also have to hear from the people who didn't.

Now I can get feedback the instant I release this online. Instant gratification. It's my favorite thing (if you don't count Slurpees).

FAQ

  • You won't pay until after the campaign ends, the first week of June. And you'll ONLY be billed if we're successful, so there's nothing to lose! Pledge today!

  • Think of it this way: You're paying whatever you would like to be able to own a copy of our new movie. We hit our goal, you'll be able to own and/or watch the movie anywhere you can get the internet.

    In addition, you will have helped anyone in the future to see our movie for free--because if we meet our goal, after July 2013, anybody will be able to watch the film for free.

    So it's part selfish on your part("I'm getting a copy for myself!") but part good-will gesture for people who maybe never saw the campaign...your pitching in has enabled everyone in the future to watch the film for FREE. But we have to make our goal, or nobody gets it for free.

  • No--and that's another great perk to this! If we went with traditional distribution it would roll out in the US, and eventually they'd sell foreign territories--but the only way to see it right away would be with a region-free DVD player. But with this, EVERYBODY can download it as of July!

    So if you're out of country there's even more reason to drop a couple of bucks and spread the word!

    Last updated:
  • It was impossible to put a high-quality copy of the movie plus all the extras on a DVD. In addition, since we shot on the Red and edited at 4K resolution, it just feels wrong to me to show it at anything other than the best resolution you can see it at(short of a theater).
