About this project
“Classified: The Edward Snowden Story” is a biopic that will tell the story of Edward Snowden starting from the time he enlisted in the US army. In this 2 hour feature, we will explore the events leading up to the release of classified information on the National Security Agency’s various surveillance programs.
Please Note: We have now switched from our own website www.snowden.sx to kickstarter for our crowdfunding campaign. The URL: www.snowden.sx will now redirect you to our new Kickstarter campaign. The $87,700 raised on our website and the $746,050 raised on bitcoin and via product placement have been deducted from our $1,700,000 goal, as a result the Kickstarter campaign goal is now $866,250.00
Filming will begin January 2014 in Vancouver BC.
During production the entire budget will be made public and available for all to see at: www.snowden.sx
This film will be distributed under the Creative Commons license which allows for anyone to share it freely, whether that be on youtube, vimeo, or via a torrent. When we reach our goal you have already paid for your ticket to “Classified: The Edward Snowden Story” and it will be available for free via The Pirate Bay on September 19 2014, which for those of you who don’t know is international talk like a pirate day.
Over the last decade, Jason has written and directed a wide variety of TV movies, series and documentaries, as well as over 60 commercials, short films and music videos. His resume includes the internationally renowned documentary "Shadow Company" narrated by Gerard Butler and over a dozen Syfy movies.
He is best known for his work as a producer on the pilot for the controversial television series “Hacked”, a half hour reality series which takes you inside the mind of a computer hacker. In addition to producing, Doering has served as a hacking consultant on the Canadian science fiction series “Continuum”, and before that on the bond film “Skyfall”. In 2012 it was revealed by The Vancouver Observer that after cutting ties with Hacker group Anonymous, Doering had served as a penetration tester for multiple Canadian companies. Before producing, Doering worked in the casting department on many film and television projects.
We have a fantastic script that was written by a very well-known writer that our producer has worked with in the past. At this time the writer wishes to remain anonymous. The script is now being revised by various consultants, some of which are currently employed by the US government and others have personal ties to Snowden himself.
At this point we have only cast 3 main roles, as we near production updates on the entire cast will be available at: www.snowden.sx
Please Note: This is a preliminary cast which is still in negotiations and is subject to change.
