If you're using IndieGoGo to raise funds, you're familiar with the way social media revolutionize a simple concept, like fundraising.
This film, The Real Social Network, is about how social media is revolutionizing something else: protesting.
Three filmmakers, Isis, Srdan and Ludo, set out to make a documentary about how social media is revolutionizing the way students protest. The majority of their footage was shot during recent student protests in the U.K. about student tuition hikes. Protesters were using Twitter, Facebook, and even creating mobile apps to help them organize and evade police action.
The filmmakers shot hundreds of hours of footage from inside the protests and now their looking to cut it into a feature-length documentary. And they're a Sheffield Doc Fest sponsored project.
