Storyline

In just a few years, crowdfunding has empowered a whole new generation of artists to create things in a way that's never been done before. CAPITAL C is the first feature length documentary dedicated to crowdfunding, focusing on the hopes and dreams as well as the fears and pitfalls of independent creators in the wake of the digital age. Over a period of three years, the film is following the endeavors of poker card designer JACKSON ROBINSON, hippie ZACH CRAIN, and video game veteran BRIAN FARGO, all of whom reach out to the crowd in order to change their lives forever: With the unforeseen crowdfunding success of his hand-drawn poker card deck, JACKSON ROBINSON is facing the opportunity to make himself visible as an artist.

Direct connect passion
23 February 2016 | by johnapplerSee all my reviews

This movie conveys so well the passion, energy and responsibility which is created when developers of products work directly for consumers of products.

Developers don't work for a boss in the way who theorizes about his view of what people want - they work for users who want their product.

The excitement of the financial gain is portrayed well by the real-time updates but so too is the associated product delivery responsibility.

Of particular interest was the "Freaker" product whose off-beat personality made him completely unable to obtain funding via traditional channels.

The developer / buyer connection displayed here portends well for this movement - loved the production !
