About

The World of Skins

Language: English
Length: 50 minutes
Availability: Steam / iTunes / Amazon / tbd
Release: March 2018

   

The turnover of in-game items, i.e., virtual weapons and other items in computer games, amounted to $48 billion in 2016. Meanwhile, a massive industry and an enormous community have grown up around this, which is centered around this phenomenon every day.

One of the biggest Games with a huge ammount on virtual items and weapons is Counter Strike: Global Offensive, developed by VALVE.

In “The World of Skins” we want to penetrate this world, make it accessible to the viewer, explain what happens there every day and how people earn money with it. Lots of money.

To show the different facets, we bring some people into the camera who tell us their story in this world.

THE STORY

We are already in contact with these 5 People, they already agreed to be part of this movie and the script is written.

The Idea is not to just let them sit down in front of a camera. We want to show their personality, how they live and listen to their story that brought them into the World of Skins. 

We also want to explain how this community works, what is the crucial factor for prices of items, how did the market work and why are there items that are worth 10.000 or 100.000 of Dollars.

How did this began, how can people make money with pixel weapons and what is the controversial part of this world?

Now we need your help to make this movie reality, we need you help to fund and produce this documentary.

THE CHARACTERS

These are the 5 outstanding personalities in the movie:

The OG, the Legend. His YouTube Channel about CS:GO Skins has 800.000 Subscriber and he is the number 1 Source for Skin related News and Rumors. He knows every rare Skin, every special item that got unboxed and get his hands on the most exclusive collector inventories.

The CS:GO Trading Expert and former High Tier Skin Trader is doing Livestreams on Twitch for around 50.000 Follower.  Everyone can have their Items Price checked on Stream and watch him do risky Trade Ups and discover special or very rare Items.

The Pro Gamer and Youtuber with 2 Million Subscribers is part of the CS:GO Community from the beginning and experienced every up and down of the skin history. He has a lot if insights and knowledge about the world of skins.

The fulltime Designer created 9 official Skins for the Game. The most famous are the AK-47 Bloodsport, the P250 Wingshot or the G3SG1 Ventilator. Many other creations are loved by thousands of gamers.

He was the Collector with the most exclusive inventory in the game. He owned the rarest and most exclusive Skins in the world and was always on the hunt for the next special item.

REWARDS

First of all, we are thankfull for every Euro we get to make this movie possible. But we tried to offer you interesting rewards to make it easy for you, to support this projekt.

These are the rewards you can get:

The Movie Poster 

The T-Shirts

 

The Fineprint Artwork  

The Black Karambit

This is a 3D Rendering of the Stand and Karambit. It is a 1:1 sized Karambit, but not sharp like a real knife. They are numbered by hand from 1 to 100.

The golden Karambit

This is a 3D Render of the Stand and Karambit.  It is a 1:1 sized Karambit, but not sharp like a real knife and not made of real Gold. It is gilded. They are numbered by hand from 1 to 5 and signed by the team.

What do we need the money for?

The Money is for the poduction of this movie. The Core-Team has to travel around the world to visit the personalities and talk to them in front of the camera. The Core-Team are 3 People: 1 Camera-Operator, 1 Audio-Guy and Richard, the Director.

After visting some countries and filming the interviews, we need to produce a movie out of the tons of material. So a lot of watching stuff, cutting, post-production has to be done. At the end there will be Voice-Overs and Audio Engineers that have to be paid as well.

What happens to the movie when its done? Where can I watch it?

As a Baker you will get the movie as digital download or on BluRay/DVD. All the other people can watch it on iTunes, Steam, and many other plattforms for a small amount of money.

Stretched Goals

If our Project gets overfunded, we have 2 stretched goals for you:

1. Time extender | EUR 35.000

If we hit 35.000 Euro, we will extend the length of the Movie to 70 Minutes. That will give us additional time to talk about this fascinating industry.

2. The 6th Man | EUR 45.000

csgo.exchange is one of the biggest Databases to find special skins, lookup floats, find owners of special items and many, many more. It is made by a guy named LeonSK and he lives far, far away from us. If we hit 45.000 Euro we are going to visit him and make him part of the movie too - and extend the movie to 95 Minutes.

Risks and challenges

As with every movie project time and budget management is a big thing. Production costs can double up or more very fast, if things are not planed very well.

We reached out to every person in this movie before, talked to them, planned the trips and looked up the costs to get from a to b as smooth and cheap as possible.

We produced a documentary before (called "Projekt Silva", its 95% done) and learned a lot about hidden costs and timing with this movie.

We made our homework and tried to minimize the risk for this project as good as possible.
