Crowdfunding and independent screen content production in Australia: A direct economic relationship between producer and audience

Laycock, Rebecca A. (2015) Crowdfunding and independent screen content production in Australia: A direct economic relationship between producer and audience. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis examines the significance of crowdfunding for Australian filmmakers and provides an empirical basis to current claims about the role of crowdfunding in the film production and policy sectors. It has found that crowdfunding is a small but growing source of supplementary finance which is opening up new possibilities for Australian independent screen content producers. This project also highlights the discussion within Australian film policy circles that is opening the way for crowdfunding to potentially become a larger and more formalised component of current and emerging policy initiatives.
