a documentary film

The Five Dollar Movie takes you on a journey to one of the most innovative and oddest versions of the gig economy: But it is also a meta-documentary that uses its subject to create the film—a documentary made about Fiverr, with Fiverr.

Meet our Backers

Posted on 22 Nov 2013 in Blog | 4 comments

Back in August we ran a Kickstarter campaign offering only one perk: in return for a $5 pledge, individuals would have their photo and a credit in The Five Dollar Movie (note: we did add an additional perk after reaching our target). In total 160 people backed us online and a further 41 in person (most of them at our Kickstarter launch party).  We’ve spent much of this week editing and printing the photographs to create our backer wall. You can see the work in progress below.

These photos will eventually be mounted on the wall in our studio and feature in the final film.

We’re still missing about 50 backer photos. If you’re one of them and want your photo in the film email it to us asap!
