I am a freelance film maker, camera and sound man. I am involved in a couple of film projects related to monetary issues and reform.
As a side line to other monetary related film projects underway and in the pipeline, I would like to do a high quality piece on bitcoin. I find bitcoin an extremely fascinating experiment as I also have a prior background in technology as a software architect, so I do not find the technical details too difficult understand or explain. I have also been fascinated by the question of 'what is money' and 'what is economy' since 2008 when the shit became very apparent.
A little bit on some money related film projects, am already involved in and planning for future:http://monkeybrainsmedia.com/monetary-reform

One series of short documentaries I want to make is about alternative currencies, people who simply choose to bypass the current system and try to create something new. I want to make the first episode on bitcoin as this experiment seems to have taken off quite well and with a good amount of success.
I wish to gauge what the interest and support levels there would be from the bitcoin community in having a professionally shot (plus motion graphics/animation etc) film on bitcoin doing the rounds?
As an experiment, the episode on bitcoin I would also like to fully finance via bitcoin as this seems very appropriate. I am set up with bitcoin so could accept donations towards this project.
Also, if this piece gets funded to completion with enough speed, relevant parts of it may make it into the mainstream film due out at the end of the year.
As you may be aware, film making to a decent quality is a very labor intensive and quite expensive process involving many practical costs in production such as travel and extra equipment. I already have a great deal invested in professional broadcast quality equipment.
What do people here think? How would you like it to turn out? Would you be willing to chip in to make it happen.
PS As a newbie to this forum I was only allowed to post here, rather than in the sections I thought would be more relevant to this message and get seen more.
