Thanks to sites such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter, prospective filmmakers no longer need to wish for investors or harass friends and family for cash. The Heartbreak Fund is the latest crowd-funded feature film and it's packed with a charitable twist: The film's three producers are soliciting donations and promising to give 50 percent of profits to charity.
Implications - The featured video introduces you to Patrick Walsh, who takes on the role of producer/director of the Heartbreak Fund. He says that their first feature will be set to release in April 2011. The video also features a "showreel" that shows off some very creative video making. The films that the Heartbreak Fund will be releasing look like they will be action-packed.
