Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
It used to be that movies were only made in Hollywood, funded by studios at a cost of millions of dollars.
But today, technology has made it possible for independent filmmakers to create their own feature films, with the Internet offering a means to fund and promote their projects.
Class Clown Pictures, a feature film production company based in Austin, Texas, has announced the start of their new project Code Enforcer, and is seeking donations from anyone who has ever wanted to get into show business.
“Our goal was to raise $40 from 1,000 people, and the donations have already started coming in,” said Class Clown producer Greg Dorchak. “Right now we’re more than 25% of the way toward the start of production.”
The company offers a range of incentives in exchange for a donation, from Class Clown bumper stickers and T-shirts to the chance to be listed as a producer of Code Enforcer, or even to appear in the movie.
“For a donation of $100 or more, you can see your name as a producer on a real film,” Dorchak said. “For a $250 contribution, you will be listed as an executive producer. And the three highest donations will score on-camera parts in the movie.”
Regular updates are posted on the company’s website, and on its Facebook page. “The Facebook page has been where we’ve not only made announcements about the movie, the story and the characters, but we’ve also solicited stories from our fans that relate to what the film is about,” Dorchak said. “What began as a funding source has grown into a vibrant creative community that we’d love to see more people join.”
