Crowdfunding Documentary to be Crowdfunded

No, this isn’t an Onion article. Filmmaker Timon Birkhofer is currently planning Capital C, a movie about the crowdfunding movement made popular by Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and you. And what better way to finance the documentary than by creating a Kickstarter page?

Birkhofer already has interviews lined up with Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola, Obama campaign Design Director Scott Thomas, “Wasteland 2” creator Brian Fargo, former CEO of Universal Music Europe Tim Renner, and several others to discuss the philosophy, potential and popular impact of finding hundreds and thousands of investors for interesting ideas.

They’re looking to film this summer after reaching their $80,000 goal. They’ve already got close to $14,000 covered, so if the project sounds interesting, feel free to help them out. It will be the most meta thing you do all day.
