Two enterprising students are using the Internet to offer people worldwide the chance to be part of an ambitious enterprise to make a million dollar feature-length film – and also gain a world record. Andrew Cargill and Tony Lane, who are studying at the International Film School Wales (IFSW), plan to enlist the help of hundreds of thousands of people, all of whom will be given a credit as Executive Producer on the finished film which they hope to have premiered in the West End.
From the article, ‘Quite simply, via the internet, we invite people all over the world to help fund the film in return for a screen credit as an executive producer. For as little as Â£3, anyone anywhere could see their name up on the screen – and hopefully, as an added bonus, we’ll break a world record for the longest screen credits. At the same time, they will have contributed towards the making of a film which we hope to show in festivals all over the world.’
The website, www.themilliondollarmovieproject.com, is officially launched at midnight this Friday (27th January) and is already attracting hits from all over the world.
