A documentary about the Unsung Heroes of Crowdfunding

About this project

CHECK OUT OUR LATEST UPDATES BELOW:

UPDATE #1 

Everyday, hundreds of projects get funded on Crowdfunding sites where the creators have a platform to pitch their ideas and tell their stories. "BACKERS" is a documentary about the people who actually make it possible for these creators to achieve their goals and pursue their dreams.  

We think it's high time to turn the spotlight on these unsung heroes who continue to keep the Crowdfunding machine moving. We want to hear from as many backers as we can and find out their stories - what motivates them to give their hard-earned dollars to help someone else reach their goal.

Below is a breakdown of how the pledge money will be allocated. Our goal of $20,000 of course, is the bare minimum we need to complete this film.  Anything beyond that goal will allow us to interview even more backers from all over the country. There are also marketing costs, once the documentary is completed and hits the Film Festival circuit.

CALLING ALL BACKERS! 

If you're a backer and would like to be featured in our documentary, please contact us and tell us your story. If you know anyone who you think we should include in our movie, feel free to reach out to us.

We urge everyone else to tell your friends about this project and spread the word. 

The goal is to make “BACKERS” available in as many platforms as possible, in order to make it easy for viewers to see it and hopefully bring some well-deserved recognition to these generous folks behind the Crowfunding phenomenon.

Risks and challenges

Inherent in making documentary films is the challenge of knowing exactly how long it will take to complete the project. However, based on the track record of the producers of this film, we feel confident that we will be able to complete this project in the next 18–24 months. Although the reality is that we all work full-time jobs and coordinating everyone's schedules as we travel all over the country to shoot these interviews can cause delays in our projected completion date, we will strive to make sure to have it in the can as soon as possible.

Regarding our rewards, it is our intention to deliver all the physical rewards out to our backers by the end of Nov 2014.

The world premiere screening and final delivery dates are also subject to our production schedule, which may shift over the course of the next few months.

Having said that, we are confident that we will be able to deliver our promises and are committed to make a documentary that will celebrate backers and make them proud to be a part of the crowdfunding community.

We thank you in advance for helping to make this documentary possible!
