THE FIVE DOLLAR MOVIE

a documentary film

A documentary made on a five-dollar budget about an online community that buys & sells services for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

Filmmaker Stephen Wright attempts to make a documentary for next to nothing by joining the ‘five-dollar movement’, an online community that buys and sells weird and wonderful services on the (extremely) cheap.

Stephen meets the online entrepreneurs who for five dollars will like you on Facebook, hand out flyers in Faisalabad, or even pretend to be your ex.

 

But the real challenge is locating the five-dollar mercenaries – scriptwriters, composers, voiceover artists, graphic designers and SFX specialists – who can help him produce the first ever film to be made for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

It’s amazing the rage of things you can get done on Fiverr. From someone delivering you a video message while brushing their teeth to 1500 words of translation for only $5! Each user has their own story to tell and we’ve tried to do those stories justice in our documentary.

Stephen Wright sits down with the film’s producer, Arthur Jones, to discuss the rules that go into making a documentary about it’s own creation.

In October 2013 I travelled to New York City to meet the people behind the Fiverr website. I had made provisional arrangements to meet them for an interview, but on the day of the visit I hadn’t received a confirmed office address. This is what happened.

Can you get a good movie poster designed for $5? We put this to the test when buying the poster design for The Five Dollar Movie on Fiverr.


The film began with a Kickstarter campaign which was intended to turn our $5 investment into $1000.

IT ALL STARTED WITH $5, WHICH WE USED TO HELP RUN A KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN.
