On My Radar: Theatrically Released Films Powered By Facebook and… You!

Crowd sourcing online as a method for funding your film may seem unlikely but it actually happens.

Sites like aswarmofangels, artistsshare and indiegogo offer filmmakers the opportunity to pitch to potential angel investors who (after contributing) have a collective say in your film (with mixed results).

But this is new…

Collectively generating content online for a corporately funded film – with confirmed theatrical release – is a groundbreaking development that, coupled with lowering costs in prosumer technology and increasing bandwith, may change the way films are created in the future.

Supported by Intel, Mass Animation has created a crowd sourcing initiative on Facebook asking animators to contribute to a new computer-generated animated short slated for theatrical release. This collectively created film will be produced and directed by former Sony Pictures Digital President Yair Landau.
