Outsourced Film Production

Short film
8:30 min

What happens when you outsource every single step of a short film production to an online marketplace? What kind of creative piece will be generated out of this labor power if you just give it a budget to work from?

The so called micro-job platforms are mainly offering services online like graphic design works or programming jobs for dumping prices. But you can also order video greetings or ask for creative writing. The range goes from fake costumer testimonials for your company’s new product to bizarre pranks and birthday wishes.

The cooperation with amateur and semi-professional service providers of the platforms is the focus of this film project. The creative work generates itself from the financial investment. All steps were created and produced by the members of the online markets.

Funded by Bauhaus-University Kreativfonds and crowdfunding backers.
