About

Hi Kickstarter (and Crypto) Community, 

A lot has happened since our first Bitcoin documentary from 2014 / 2015. Unfortunately, the mainstream media and most common people still don't understand the topic. You probably still have a few friends who don't 'get it' yet. 

With our new film, we aim to create an entertaining and hands-on documentary that covers the entire crypto-currency industry and the most interesting people, projects and products in this space. 

Production Stills from 2015

The last film went viral in mid-2015 and achieved major distribution on TV stations in China, Taiwan, Sweden, Kenya, Spain, ... and on platforms like Amazon, Vimeo, iTunes. This time, we aim for even wider global reach. Our former clients include NatGeo, Netflix, Discovery, Hulu, Sky, Canal+, ...

We already have a lot of great interview footage from: 
Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Vitalik Buterin, Roger Ver, Matt Miller, Bernard von NotHaus, Nicolas Cary, Trace Mayer, Jeffrey Tucker, Paul Vigna, Bruce Fenton, Naomi Brockwell, Michael Terpin, Michael Casey,  Diego Gutierrez, David A. Johnston, Max Wright, Elizabeth Ploshay, Rui Rodrigues, Ryan Zhou, Scott Li, Stephan Livera, Nicholas Gruen, Mark Bainbridge, Domenic Carosa, Niki Scevak, Sam Lee, Juan Llanos, James Canning, Eric Benz, James Jalil, Joseph Vaughn Perling, Eric Spano,

 

 

That's great - but only the start. Since our interviews in 2014/2015 a lot has happened in the crypto world, and with these folks: Massive Wealth. New Ventures. Scams. Imprisonment. We will revisit some of these experts and follow their most interesting of stories more in-depth. 

In terms of style we will do much less "talking heads" - you can find a lot of that on YouTube or on financial news channels nowadays. Instead, our new film will feel much more like a "Netflix" documentary. 

Further, we like to explain Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash and how 'beginners' can use it. Less academic, theoretical and boring (some criticisms we received from the audience last time) and more hands-on and entertaining. We will also use more animation to illustrate some points. 

3 years ago, Torsten's company paid for about 80% of the production budget. This time, we estimate the production costs to be around $100,000 (USD) and with your help we hope to raise 30-50% of this budget here on Kickstarter and the remainder via corporate sponsors and/or wealthy private supporters. 

Our rewards are what you would expect from a documentary project on  Kickstarter. As fun little give-away we offer these cool Zimbabwean banknotes (please note that this currency has been discontinued due to hyper-inflation). Please share this with your friends and follow us on Twitter

Risks and challenges

As you can see above, this project is being managed by a very experienced team of documentary filmmakers. We have already recorded lots of interviews (Miami, Toronto, New York, London, Melbourne) plus a lot of other footage. If this Kickstarter project will not reach the goal, we will still finish the film (at a lower quality level). In fact, it is planned to be mostly self-funded by Torsten's company 3D Content Hub Pty. Ltd. anyway. The risk, in our view, is timing. The world of bitcoin moves so fast, there may be additional angles we want to cover, or new opportunities with high-profile interviewees may come up. Also, distribution partners, broadcasters, film festivals may ask us to edit the film. Festivals often require 'exclusive premiere' and might slow us down. Since our main goal is to bring the film to millions of viewers, we will have to listen to requests like these which would slow down the finalization of the project. This could affect the timing re: access to the film digitally.
