Can You Crowdsource a Marriage?

Can You Crowdsource a Marriage?

May 26, 2013

Crowdsourcing is a very simple concept that is available to people thanks to the internet. The idea of Crowdsourcing was first targeted by entrepreneurs and developers or directors who are looking forward to execute a certain project but faced a problem with the funding. In order to overcome this obstacle, they would post their project on one of the many Crowdsourcing websites such as GoFundMe.com, kickstarter.com and Fundeverything.com. They would lay out their project and people from around the world would donate to make the project happen. Celebrities and Crowdsourcing This concept has started to be approached by celebrities as well. For example, Veronica Mars led a very successful Kickstarter campaign recently that managed to even surpass its goal for a Veronica Mars movie. Zack Braff is also leading a very successful campaign on the same website, Kickstarter. The point is, Crowdsourcing can be used by anyone, including unknown developers as well as celebrities. Normal People Like You and Me These projects can also include simple people who are looking to raise funds to overcome a certain obstacle. This includes projects that raise funds for medical treatments, weddings, honeymoons, wishes and dreams among other things. For example, there is a Crowdsourcing project at GoFundMe.com about a man from Egypt who is trying to overcome the obstacles in order to marry his girl. As the project states, according to the traditions of Egypt, the man will have to buy an apartment before proposing, so he needs help raising the amount of money that he is missing. This is only one of the many projects of this nature that can be found online, there are hundreds of touching stories that the internet Crowdsourcing community is funding. Types of Crowdsourcing Websites Like anything, there are numerous types of websites, each one has its own rules. For example, Kickstarter only funds projects that reached their goals. Each project will set a goal at the beginning, it can exceed the goal but if the project does not reach the goal, they will not be paid and the backers will get their money back. There are other websites such as Gofundme.com and Fundanything.com that would pay whatever funding the campaign...

The Bohemians Movie

The Bohemians Movie

Nov 20, 2012

This modern day telling of La Bohème takes place in the gorgeous city of modern day New York. If one is unfamiliar with the original Opera, it is a four act, Italian Opera that is actually quite famous. The story is about bohemians, or artists. Being a story about artists, New York City is an excellent backdrop. It is reminiscent of the Latin Quarter in Paris with its industrial setting. The hustle, bustle, and subtle artistic attitude of New York made it the perfect choice.But even with such an amazing choice of location, bringing out this side of New York in a way any audience member can recognize is no easy task. One can easily see the skills of the cinematographer and lighting crew. The scenery is very nice, but it is the lighting and the inventive camera work that makes this film as artistic as the artists it is portraying. The story does a great job at capturing the life of struggling artists. The tears, the joys, and the struggles are all shown in a way anyone watching can relate to. The cast is made up of young singers that not only bring the music of the original four act opera to life, but make the characters seem real. Each member is very talented and their craft really shines through on screen. The combination of a fantastic cast, great camera and editing and a wonderful backdrop make this classic opera adaptation not just another re-imagining or retelling of the same story like we have seen from Hollywood time and time again. By even just watching the trailer, one can see that every member involved with the film wants to stay true to not only the original story but the art of Opera. Each element of the film blends together perfectly, and nothing is lacking. It is perfect execution that makes films worth watching. It doesn’t happen always in the film world, and when combining two art forms like opera and film it becomes even harder. But this film stays true to both art forms and blends them perfectly. The producers and filmmakers have opened up an opportunity for backers at Kickstarter to actually...
