This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Super Academy is a comedy/action superhero webseries, based on the short film of the same name, created by Minnesota director, Ben Lifson. In a world where superpowers are commonplace, being a superhero has become accepted as a valid career choice. In this world, there is a university called “Super Academy”, where young heroes are trained in controlling their powers, and how to apply them towards their careers. This involves hands on experience; fighting villains, tutelage in abilities, and studying of techniques. The original film can be viewed below:
You will be funding three new episodes that will debut in a serial format. Each will be 15-20 minutes and will combine to tell a fun and exciting story arc. The money will be used to pay industry professionals a competitive wage, costumes, equipment rental, set insurance, location fees, craft services, and transportation fees. A large portion of the budget will also go to post-production, where their team will mix sound, add special effects, and edit the footage into a complete project. As indie filmmakers they know how to stretch each dollar – but they still need cash to get the job done. To deliver you a professional final product, they need the money to get the professionals and tools required to ensure the quality you deserve.
As of May 8th, this project has raised around $7,848 of their $8,000 goal. This project only has 10 days left to raise the $8,000 or it will not be funded!
