The recent phenomenon of ‘crowd funding’ film projects through sites like Kick-starter has not really borne any real fruit yet.
With projects like the upcoming prequel to Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon being solely funded through Kickstarter donations it’s only a matter of time before one of these projects hits big and changes the system forever. In the meantime after the recent Absentia showed what you can do with performance, atmosphere and a low budget made up of donations, now we have the Australian internet funded movie The Tunnel.
The Tunnel is presented in the faux documentary format and follows the misfortune of a journalist Natasha Warner (Bel Delia) and her crew (Andy Rodoreda, Steve Davis and Luke Arnold) who find an intriguing piece of footage on YouTube that leads then to believe that there may be a story lurking in the sewers below Sydney.

.We wanted The Tunnel to appear real in every way., says Harvey, producer and co-creator of the hit Australian horror film, .but for Event Zero, we.re going for a hugely cinematic feel. Hopefully people will be caught off guard by what we accomplished with the money we had. We wanted to show people that we could tackle the big scenes..
Event Zero is a collection of seven stories all centered on a train derailment near Circular Quay. When the emergency services arrive at the scene, seemingly unaffected people begin to die. The story is loosely based on the 1995 Sarin gas attacks in Tokyo.
Tedeschi and Harvey received funding for Event Zero through Screen Australia and Movie Extra after their concept won the 2012 Movie Extra Webfest 2.0 competition. »
