Interactor: An Interactive, Film Crowdsourcing Platform
A new initiative gives audiences an integral role in the production of films.
Twitch Film and Instinctive Film are teaming up to add another layer to the crowdsourcing trend already provided by Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. The platform will focus exclusively on film and will give audiences an opportunity not only a chance to fund films they like but to actually have more of a voice in which films get made in general. Likening themselves to a request engine, the funding will work in a way that films the audience wants to get to see will get made. Audiences will choose among three films to be produced annually, one of which will already be in production. Unlike other crowdsourcing sites, however, funders who give enough to certain projects will be able to qualify as Executive Producers and be able to participate in the production of the film at certain levels.
