PYLON.FM @ ANIMAGO

Next week on Oct 25, there will by a talk by Toby at the renowned ANIMAGO AWARD / CONFERENCE in Berlin about the basic principles of crowdfunding and its risks and chances (in English). Among the questions he will answer are the following: What’s the best way to develop Crowdfunding concepts? How do you implement a Crowdfunding campaign? What are the potential risks or problems involved?

PYLON.FM goes to LONDON!

Sorry for the silence around here, but we are busy working on some marvelous projects, some of which will be announced (and shown!) soon…
By the way, Toby will be in London next week, from Sep 10 to Sep 16 – so if you you want to meet with him for a chat or project proposal , feel free to let us know. 🙂

Project Update: Hybrid Vigor

Wow, great news for “Hybrid Vigor”!

As you might know, we are associate producers on “Hybrid Vigor”, an entirely crowdfunded feature film shot on location in Latvia.

Last year a successful Kickstarter campaign allowed the shooting of the film in Latvia.
Now there is a crowdfunding campaign for raising the money to finish this movie in post-production – with a a truly Hollywood finish:

haeppchenweise

We are proud to bring Maike Brochaus’ “haeppchenweise”, a post-pornographic experiment that we helped to fund, for a limited cinema screening to Munich!
“Six people, one room, one night, one dinner, a lot of sensuality and much to discover. A film that shows how bodies and minds might meet, when allowed to.”

More info and a trailer in German here:
http://haeppchenweise.net/index.html
And in English here:
http://haeppchenweise.net/en/index_en.html

We will be showing it (in German language) at the “Werkstattkino” in Munich
(Fraunhoferstr. 9) from 07/07 to 07/10 each day at 10:30 pm.

Finally: Update of IMDb score calculations!

Good news for indie filmmakers that have their movies on IMDb!

As of today, IMDb has finally revised their calculation scheme for the IMDb score, which for films with few votes will now display the score as the arithmetic mean instead of the “mysterious” weighted average.
The problem has been known for a long time (I think it was more than 2 years ago that we first complained about this), but got increasingly worse because of misuse during the last months.

Site update and new projects

Today we updated this website a bit with galleries for most movies, extended descriptions, larger trailers and images, etc.

And we added three more projects that we supported or are working on:
Annex
Self Inflicted
Zombificador

Enjoy!

Zombificador!

We are proud to announce that we are now producers on “Zombificador”, a horror anthology to be directed by legendary “Godfather of Gore” himself – Herschell Gordon Lewis. That is – if we get enough money to fund the film. 🙂

You can check out the official Zombificador website here, or follow this project on Twitter and Facebook.

More news coming soon…
