Today, we’re excited to announce a partnership with Morgan Spurlock’s multiplatform production company, Warrior Poets. With this new partnership, Warrior Poets will identify, develop and produce select documentary films funded through Indiegogo.
We know filmmakers need more than just funding to be successful, and this new partnership helps filmmakers throughout the lifecycle of their projects. For each film selected, Warrior Poets will provide production and post-production services, as well as film festival, financial and distribution strategy and consultation. In addition, they’ll offer backstop distribution through iTunes Movies & Virgil Films, ensuring your film finds an audience regardless of theatrical release. And if all of that isn’t enough, Morgan Spurlock will even serve as Executive Producer on each film!
The first film supported by this partnership, a feature length documentary called “We Believe In Dinosaurs,” launches their campaign today. “We Believe In Dinosaurs” documents Creationists who built a $100 million, 510-foot Noah’s Ark in rural Kentucky with the express purpose of debunking evolution. Stay tuned, there will be more films to come – maybe even yours!
We know great things happen when smart, creative people collaborate, and we’re excited to connect Indiegogo film campaigners with industry leaders. Morgan Spurlock and the pros at Warrior Poets are top-notch talent. Since 2004, they’ve produced a number of critically acclaimed films, including “The Eagle Huntress”, currently a “Best Documentary” finalist nominee for the Oscars, the award-winning FX series “30 Days,” and CNN’s “Morgan Spurlock Inside Man”, which has been greenlit for a fourth season.
In the same vein, Indiegogo has helped tens of thousands of filmmakers finance and distribute their projects, and seen some pretty incredible results, like 4 time 2016 Independent Spirit Award-nominee, “Free in Deed,” Gotham Award-winning/Emmy-nominated web series, “HER STORY,” and the Sony Pictures Classic “Miles Ahead,” directed and starring Don Cheadle.
We’re excited to help filmmakers get their great idea to the screen as easily as possible with support from a world-class production company.
