Completely crowd financed film The Tunnel could be better than The Descent
We’re absolute sluts for underground monsters and cave dwellers. So when we found out about The Tunnel (a mockumentary type movie) we were interested. But when we discovered how this horror movie was financing their production – we were invested!
The Tunnel, a movie about a news crew that explores Sydney’s mysterious collection of underground tunnels, is being financed by online donations. Interested parties can purchase a frame for a buck. And as of a few minutes ago, 22,492 out of 135,00 frames have been sold. And if you look at the above poster you can see it’s made up of names that contributed to the film. So, why should you invest in this project? Besides the fact that the trailer is pretty fantastic (below), there’s the fact that after the project is finished, the entire film will be released onto the internet via torrents.

Guillermo del Toro Opening His Own Production Facility, Calling It an ‘Imaginarium’ for Filmmakers
If there’s one thing about Guillermo del Toro that shold be evident by now, it’s that he is passionate about film and filmmaking.

Guillermo del Toro is opening Mirada, a company intended to be a workspace for filmmakers in which they can conceive, develop and launch their own projects. He’s not doing this alone — also on the team are cinematographer and frequent GDT collaborator Guillermo Navarro, Matthew Cullen and Javier Jimenez.

We really want to be a filmmakers’ resource… I think the future of storytelling needs to be very, very rooted in tradition but very nimble toward the future, and that’s the philosophy behind the company.
