The Iron Sky team is testing nine popular crowdfunding services that are available on the internet. The aim is to get 50 000 euros in each or 300 000 euros in total, in just 60 days. You can follow our progress here!
The amount is the combined sum of money gathered on the crowdsourcing services updated once a day.
We embarked on a journey to find out how deep a crowdfunding campaign can go, using available crowdfunding platforms. We launched Iron Sky on 10 different crowdfunding platforms, with the goal of racing them to 50000€ each.
The Race begun on 1.4. and ended on 31.5., with the German platform StartNext being exteded for a while. That gave us two full months to succeed. However, we did not. When the race closed we had secured some 10 000 euro, much of that in services where money was not committed unless the goal was met.
* Flattr functions differently than the other platforms and the amount of money is not known until the end of each month.
The idea is to use the most prominent existing services and try to offer similar conditions in each of them. Most of the services have levelled the contributions to pre-determined sums, and accompanied Perks to them.
The idea is to write an article about collaborative film financing so that all the filmmakers around the world can take advantage of the experiences we’ve had with Iron Sky.
This project will kill two pigs with one bird: we can help the other film makers, and we can use it to help us finance the movie. As you may remember, the weather wasn’t kind for us in Frankfurt or Australia, and it caused some additional expenses. We went over the budget, and we’ve been busy getting money and sponsors to cover the gap. We are halfway there, but the proceeds of this project will be a great help for us!
