Deep Web: The Untold Story of Bitcoin and The Silk Road closed this past weekend and the crowdfunding film made goal during the final hours of the campaign. Alex Winter, the project creator, is a well known actor, director who may be best known for his roles in films such as Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Lost Boys. The film was looking to raise $75,000 and slipped past that amount closing at $78,700 garnering support from 1,222 backers.
Winter’s encouraged supporters during the last days of the campaign promising that,
Whoever pledges the amount that gets us to our goal will receive a personalized video greeting from me! Whatever you want me to say, that allows me to remain clothed and retain a small shred of dignity 🙂
Apparently someone will receive the personalized video.
Alex urged supporters to up their pledge to make goal and if backer comments are an indication of the impact of this request – many came through with additional support. Most backers came in at the lower levels but one supporter delivered $5000.00 to the project capturing a reward of being part of the commentary for the film. The reward for the signed Lost Boys Poster, available for $200, did sell out.
The story line for the film covers the dark side of the internet. The portion most of us never visit but allegedly represents 96% of the internet. Alex previously directed the film “Downloaded” about the Napster revolution. Deep Web is expected to premier in 2015.
