The CineCoup Film Accelerator (A Pretty Life)

(This CineCoup pilot project was open only to Canadian filmmakers this year – BUT it will be available to US filmmakers next year!)

The CineCoup Film Accelerator is a disruptive model for indie filmmakers to develop, market and finance their feature films.

Filmmaking teams apply to CineCoup with a two-minute trailer then advance through a gamified selection funnel that’s designed to package their projects and build fan support on the CineCoup social web platform. http://cinecoup.com/

All filmmakers who participate stand to gain valuable audience feedback, social media savvy and a professional online pitch package bolstered by fan support. The Top 10 projects will be optioned for development.

A jury of industry professionals and a CineCoup Superfan will select one project for up to $1 million (CDN) in production financing and guaranteed release in Cineplex theatres in January 2014.CineCoup has up to $1 million to finance a feature film and a slate of projects to choose from. You have the power to help your favourite ideas and indie filmmakers advance to the finals and Cineplex theatres.

A Pretty Life

A very good friend of mine, Jacquie Gould, has produced a trailer for her film “A Pretty Life” which is about social media as told through the lens of a 17 year. It’s about us and our role in social media. We watch, don’t we? http://cinecoup.com/pretty-life

SYNOPSIS: A 17 year old girl posts the story of her life online and creates a viral sensation. Interactive filmmaking on all levels. We watch as a 17 year old girl becomes a viral sensation with her online posts and videos. As her story unfolds the audience is drawn in and cannot look away. She taunts the viewers, begging for their input on what she should do with her life. Does the audience become part of the problem or ultimately is this plea for help heard?

This is what Jacquie says about her film: “We began developing A Pretty Life in February 2012. I was fascinated by the online world of my son and his friends and how it defines their generation. Social media has changed everything and the complexity, immediacy and the permanence of the online world are the backdrop to this film. The question is: How can we feel so alone in a world so connected?”

You can help Jacquie and her team by watching A Pretty Life trailer and, if you like the trailer, add it to your watch list. This will help the film get votes so they can move on to the next stage. http://cinecoup.com/pretty-life
