Once we complete post production we will submit the film to film festivals, and attempt to seek out some kind of distribution deal that can bring the film to the widest audience possible.
Because distributors usually buy the rights for online distribution and DVD's, offering these as a Kickstarter reward can make negotiating a deal difficult. Yasha went through a similar problem when publishers picked up his book Surveillance Valley.
So hold on! You might be thinking.. Not only are they going to be selling this film for big bucks, but they are also going to charge me to see it after I helped them get it made?
Firstly, it's not guaranteed we would make back the money we spent on production (never mind years of unpaid work) if we get a distribution deal. The independent documentary world is no cash cow, this project is a labour of love!
And secondly, we want everyone who backed the film to be able to watch it for free - whether its private screenings in major cities, a digital download, or comps for festival screenings. We just don't want to promise anything until we know exactly what we can promise.
