The crowdfunding of Coins is primarily aimed at the completion, post-production and promotion of the film - which has for the most part already been shot. We have made it cooperatively, using a system whereby each person who has worked on the film becomes the owner of a number of shares equal to their working days with respect to the total. We have not resorted to public funding due to the risks associated with filming in the areas of L’Aquila still destroyed by the earthquake. We have therefore had to be flexible and, having filmed in the Red Zone, not always compliant with the demands of state bureaucracy. Crowdfunding is now essential in allowing us to complete the film and bring it to life - meaning that we can make the leap from the production period to the public release of the film: editing, mixing, post-audio and video, standardising DCP, translation, marketing, entry to film festivals, etc. These are some elements that cost more than shooting the film itself, in the impetous way in which we have managed all of our projects so far.
