Indie Director Makes “TwitFlicks” To Fund Movie

by Dan Koelsch

What do you do if your Kickstarter-like campaign to fund your independent short film isn’t working? If you’re Dutch director Eddy Terstall, you take requests for mini-movies on Twitter for a fee, calling them “Twitflicks”. By doing just that, Terstall raised about €120,000, way more than the €20,000 he was looking for, so he is actually turning the project, titled Deal, into a feature-length film. Watch Terstall’s video about how he did it after the break.


That’s a pretty inventive way to get your funding. How have you seen social networks used to fund a project? Let us know in the comments below.
