    • Crowdfunding is perhaps the most significant social development of the past decades. It democratizes culture, innovation, and the way we do business.

      With insights from renowned crowdfunding experts – like designer Scott Thomas (Design Director Pres. Obama) and best selling author Seth Godin (The Icarus Deception) – CAPITAL C is the first documentary on the crowdfunding revolution.

      The film follows the endeavours of three independent artists, who reach out to the crowd in order to change their lives forever.

      After trying for 20 years through traditional channels, video game legend Brian Fargo finally finds a way to reboot his classic ’Wasteland’ through a multi-million dollar crowdfunding campaign. Now the eyes of more than 60,000 supporters are on him to deliver on his promises for Wasteland II.

      From the beginning, quirky inventor Zach Crain and his team rely on the crowd to create knitted bottle koozies. The success of his crowdfunding campaign even catches the eye of TV execs at ABC’s ’Shark Tank’. But success also leads to unwanted attention when a multinational company rips off Zach’s ideas.

      As his crowdfunding campaign for hand-drawn poker card decks goes viral, illustrator Jackson Robinson is given the opportunity to make a viable career as an artist. However, he has to learn that the fruition of his dream comes at a price for him and his young family.

      CAPITAL C is independently produced and crowdfunded by 586 people from 24 countries.
