Finnish Director Opens Movie Sourcing
Small time indie producers around the globe will have a chance to use free footage from a documentary road movie called Escaping Cold. First in the loose menu will be some 13 European countries. One individual producer-director is willing.
Online PR News – 20-November-2012 – Helsinki, Finland – Helsinki, Finland, November 20, 2012 -- Online world is changing fast and one of the latest proofs of that is the simultaneous global release of a full feature indie film called Escaping Cold. It is a brain child of a Finnish born director, producer, videographer and inventor Pekka Kossila who chose not to attend any film festivals, get video distribution from main protagonists nor organize immense press party to present his production.
Independent production called Escaping Cold was shot in 14 countries with whatever assistance of friends and bystanders who would pick up the camera and shoot some of the situations while director would get some his 'acting' on the screen. All of the footage shot in this road movie was originally shot in 3D which version will come out at fall 2013.
What makes this road movie feature documentary rattling is that the director-producer, as owner of all the rights, has promised to provide the scenic footage for open source use for indie producers in certain countries world wide. This means that starting from year 2016 indie movie producers can use the footage shot in this film for free (with some discretion's) and all the scenic shots from these countries will be available for use in their productions without charge. Normally copyright ownership of the movie footage lasts at least 50 years after the death of the rights holder.
Whatever is the success of the first movie, sequel has been planned and set to start from Chile next fall. Random person from somewhere in the world will be chosen as a co-pilot and co-star. More details on how to participate; www.indiegogo.com/escapingcold
Escaping Cold movie premieres globally online on Tuesday 26th November at EscapingCold.com and costs 2,99 Euros / 4,39 USD to watch.
