CAPITAL C is the first documentary on the crowdfunding revolution. It follows the endeavors of three independent artists, who reach out to the crowd to change their lives forever: Brian Fargo finds a way to reboot his video game 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. Zach Crain and his team rely on the crowd to create knitted bottle koozies. But success also leads to unwanted attention when a multinational company rips off Zach's ideas. As his crowd-funding campaign goes viral, 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 family.
JØRG KUNDINGER and TIMON BIRKHOFER started to create artworks and music videos for their independent band in 2001 and for artists such as Lady Gaga, AVICII, Sunrise Avenue, Schiller, Rea Garvey, or Glasperlenspiel. In 2012, their debut film CAPITAL C was funded by 586 people from 24 countries through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
