Amazingly personal and honest documentary
14 July 2016 | by nilsvermeireSee all my reviews

I haven't seen anything like this on the subject of crowdfunding before. This is just such an honest and personal film with real life characters pursuing their dreams, ups and downs and strong will to carry on. Jason Cooper and Jay Armitage traveled around the USA and captured all those intense moments everyone doing a project on Kickstarter goes through. Success and failure belong together and even so success is no guarantee for a happy life. Many a creative soul came up with and excellent idea only to discover they weren't able to fulfill in the end. The cool thing about the film is maybe it provides a really simple and down to earth explanation of what crowdfunding truly is and the filmmakers cover all the aspects you have to keep in mind whenever you decide to ask the crowd to help you achieve your dream goals. And the best thing? Yeah this film was crowdfunded as well! A whole bunch of enthusiastic backers from around the globe made it possible for these guys to tell the story of others... what a concept! What a joy!
