This is not an Ad – It’s film funding.

Crowdsourcing is the thing now.  When you want to make a film  you take it first to  family, friends, supporters and potential audiences. By the process itself of revealing your intentions in public, you transform an abstract idea (a dream?) into a plan. By asking for contributions in exchange for (clever, fun) rewards, your film becomes a project, one that you are responsible for. Just by posting on Kickstarter or Indiegogo (among others) you become a storytelling entrepreneur, a making-of artist  in the web-circus.

What are you selling when you crowdsource? Your ideas, your talent, your role as an innovator in an innovator world

Your video. good=funds, bad=redo, rethink, remake.


“The Elevator” straps you in the HOT seat again.

Two years ago Riccardo NERI produced the film H.O.T.

H.O.T. is a powerful doc about global Human Organ Traffic. It screened at festivals the world round. It helps raise awareness about the forced extraction of body parts, and the resale and distribution system behind it. Yes I know, you’ve heard about it, but this has narrative and visual detail. Did you see it?

Now Riccardo and his Rome-based company Lupin Film went fictional about the same crazy matter.

The link opens the sales-teaser of the new film “Elevator”, a feature directed by Massimo Coglitore and written by Mauro Graiani and Riccardo Irrera.

“Elevator” presses key global buttons about the business of human organ trading.
It will be coming soon to a stairway near you.
