  • <26 Years> to Crowdsource Funding
  • by Kim Seong-Hoon /  May 02, 2012

  • The film project <26 Years> (Cheongeoram Film, CEO CHOI Yong-Bae) has officially been resurrected.
    <26 Years> is based on an Internet cartoon of the same name, written by well-known webtoon author KANG Pool.
    The film is about a secret plot, developed by characters involved in the violent May 1980 Gwangju Democratization Movement, to punish “the One” -- the main culprit of the massacre -- on the same day of its 26th anniversary.
    This project had originally been developed in 2008, but was shelved numerous times after funding suddenly disappeared. Given this, the producers of <26 Years> have decided to try to crowdsource the funding.
    Crowdsourced funding refers to a way of promoting ideas or potential projects through social media or other Internet venues, then returning any profits to individual investors after the project’s completion.
    “Prime the Pump for the <26 Years> Project” is officially en route to its goal of KRW 1 billion, and public funding will remain open until the end of May.
