Thanks to Cory at BoingBoing, I found the Swarm:
“A Swarm of Angels reinvents the Hollywood model of filmmaking to create cult cinema for the Internet era. It’s all about making an artistic statement, making something you haven’t seen before. Why are we doing this? Because we are tired of films that are made simply to please film executives, sell popcorn, or tie-in with fastfood licensing deals.
We want to invent the future of film. Call it Cinema 2.0.
To do it we need your help.”
I’ve already signed up as one of the first one thousand. My username is dlove on The Nine Orders (the forum for members). In USD, the basic individual subscription is only roughly $45. For the cost of a special edition DVD, you can be part of something fun, new, and different (and get a movie out of it, too!). If we want to change the way film is done, we have to put our money where our mouth is. Will you?
Besides, it’s going to be a soft sci-fi thriller. 🙂
