Shareconomy has officially launched on Indiegogo.com! We have spent the last several months working on our network and preparing a campaign for the public. We invite you to check out our Indiegogo page and let us know what you think!
Our focus has been following the West Coast movement, including CEOs, thought leaders, the first major SHARE conference in May and everyday people like you and me using sharing to change their lives. We've made it this far with just us, a sound crew, great advisors AND friends and supporters like you!
Resources are strained, people are tired of struggling to eke by, and innovation has skyrocketed. In response, the sharing economy has become a kind of massive overhaul and restructuring of business, government, and life.
This is our first feature film, financed to date by us (roughly $30,000 of our own money + our own professional gear), an amazing $10K donation and tons of in-kind. We have made it through pre-production and are mid-production, with more than 50 interviews to date, and so many great stories on camera.
We need to raise $35,000 to:
- Get back on the road - we need to get to Chicago, Detroit, Austin, Boston, DC, and NYC to show how this movement is transforming life, big and small, in major cities.
- Grow our much needed communication, fundraising and outreach efforts
- Prep for paying more crew, which will soon include editor Eric Frith, whose credits include 'Finding Hillywood' (Big Sky 2014), 'Song of the New Earth’ (SIFF 2014), 'Eden’ (SXSW 2012) and ‘The Heart of the Game’ (TIFF 2005)
- We also have one big stretch goal, which is to go global, to bring stories to the film from Spain, Seoul and Paris -- places where the sharing economy has scaled up (like Spain’s Mondragon Corporation, the largest co-op in the world, which now employs more than 80K people). Spain is also considered a kind of 'battleground' in this movement.
