The Five Dollar Movie takes you on a journey to one of the most innovative and oddest versions of the gig economy: Fiverr.com. But it is also a meta-documentary that uses its subject to create the film—a documentary made about Fiverr, with Fiverr.
Over the last six weeks I’ve been busy editing some of The Five Dollar Movie footage in order to piece the different parts together and create a cohesive narrative story arc. What’s exciting about this process, is that for the first time I’ve been able to use Fiverr to outsource content that will be seen in the film. I’ve purchased stock music, motion graphics, animation and even promotional videos. Part of The Five Dollar Movie’s ethos is to show exactly what goes into making a film and in keeping with this i’ve created a YouTube channel where I’ve uploaded the raw, unedited versions of evert video i’ve purchased from Fiverr. I’ve also included a link to the seller in case you want to buy the same gig. Since it’s christmas, I thought it only appropriate to also outsource The Five Dollar Movie’s christmas message.
