The Biracy Project (http://www.biracy.com) announces the appointment of Connie Dolphin as Producer and Jason Bourque as Director for the Project’s first film. The Biracy Project is a social experiment in crowdfunded filmmaking that will build the audience in advance and give the audience the power to make decisions on how the film will be made. The unique way in which the members of the Biracy Project are engaged through the entire filmmaking process will present new and fascinating challenges for both Dolphin and Bourque.
Connie Dolphin has a rich and diverse production experience garnered over twenty years of involvement in the film and television industry. She is a graduate from Simon Fraser University with a BA in Communications and subsequently from the Norman Jewison ‘Canadian Film Centre’ -- TV Drama Producers Program. Connie has worked on projects of all budgets and for all audiences. She cut her teeth as Post Production Supervisor and Associate Producer on a variety of television dramatic series, movies of the week and feature films. In the past ten years, Connie Produced or Co-Produced numerous TV series, feature films and direct-to-DVD projects for CBC, GlobalTV, Fox Home Entertainment, Alliance Atlantis Entertainment and NBC/Universal DVD, among a host of others, Connie held a position as guest professor for two years at the University of Industrial Art & Design Helsinki and has guest lectured at innumerable seminars on the topics of Post Production and Production. She is very much looking forward to working with the Biracy Project model and producing a top-quality film.
Jason Bourque’s eleven years of Directing experience include a wide variety of TV movies, features, series and documentaries, commercials, short films and music videos. His award-winning work has been broadcast on History Television, A&E, Bravo! TV, CBC, and on movie channels globally.

The appointment of these two key positions signals a significant milestone for Biracy. Membership continues to grow among the professional community as well as the fan-based community. The Biracy Project believes the crowdfunded model of financing movies, offers the film industry an innovative hybrid option to source funds and engage the audience at the same time. Having distribution assist in the marketing of memberships in return for releasing the product is a win-win for all parties involved.
The Biracy Project is the pilot project built on Binoir Media Inc.’s new social utility platform SoKap. Once out of Beta phase, Binoir will make SoKap available to qualified producers of digital media to allow them to crowdfund, crowdsource and define their audience while incurring no debt in the process. The Biracy Project is currently seeking 1 million members to participate in the making of a movie.
