Back in the days, it will cost you millions of dollars to producer a movie or even a ten minutes documentary, but thanks to the famous Almighty technology, oh sorry! did I say something wrong?
Well if you have ever wanted to produce a movie this is your opportunity. A group is offering you a life time opportunity to become an Executive Producer with just one dollar ($1).
With one dollar ($1) you will become an Executive Producer of the film and will be listed in the credits (unless you don’t want to). Your name on their “Thank & Credits” page on their website www.hackitat.com.
They recently started a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo to finance the making of the documentary. their target is to raise 80, 000 dollars.
Below is the purpose for making the movie :
What compels some people to spend a lot of time and energy on setting up servers, creating programs and even committing crimes to help people in a dictatorship in another country to communicate freely?
Who are the people building a nation on the Internet and why are they doing it? How are the hackers in Bolivia working to integrate indigenous languages into computer software so that all people can access the technology?
Who are the hackers in the middle east that some call terrorists and some call freedom activists. What drives this activism and does anonymous in Bahrain share a common ideology with anonymous in Brazil?
Around the world there is a network of hackerspaces that explore, hack and create new ways of expressing themselves with technology. Hackerspaces that by some are seen as a threat to our digital society.
What is it that drives these people? What are their purpose and their reasons for what they do? How do they live their lives? These are some of the questions we will seek to answer with this movie as we meet hackers and visit their hackerspaces.
We need your help to realize the production of this full-featured documentary film about the hacker culture. When technology is taking over our lives the battle over free digital communication will be one of the defining struggles of our time. This film will explore this conflict by talking to the people that are in it.
This money will enable us to visit hackerspaces in five continents and feature them in the film. After the film is finished it will be released on the Internet with a Creative Commons license for everyone to enjoy.
If you don’t have the possibility to help financially you can always help us by spreading the word! <3
Thanks for showing interest in our project!
