Rajat Kapoor, one of India’s most talented actors who has starred in many low budget classics like Bheja Fry and Ankhon Dekhi, is crowd-sourcing his upcoming film RK/RKay. Out of the 2.5 crores that he wanted, he has already collected more than Rs 3 Lakhs by the time this article was written. We hope that he is successful in this endeavour, and the film sees the light of the day.
Internationally, many films have been crowd-sourced (either the money, or the content) and we’re listing the best ones that you should watch.
With a 97% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Veronica Mars is arguably the best film on this list. After all, not many stories show a high school student doubling up as a private investigator.
He’s been a part of some amazing Hollywood films like 500 Days Of Summer and Inception, but it’s clear that Joseph Gordon Levitt is a true artist who does what his heart desires. In A City is a crowdsourced short film, that is extremely unique and has two versions – with one of the versions being shot by 54 cinematographers from all over the world.
Just like Life In A Day, India In A Day captures the diversity of experiences people have in the country. “We started on a blank slate. There was no set agenda on what to present. We were responding to what people had given us, and look at India with a neutral gaze,” director Richie Mehta was quoted as saying by India Today.
