“Classified: The Edward Snowden Story” will be the first film to be produced using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Any donations made via Paypal will be converted into BTC when we reach our one million dollar funding goal.
When we go into production in early 2014, our accounting department will be using Bitcoin as our currency of choice for payroll. Every cast & crew member will receive each weeks payment to their wallet address. They will then have the option to leave their salary in Bitcoin or simply withdraw it for cash at the Robocoin ATM in downtown Vancouver B.C.
“Classified: The Edward Snowden Story” is a biopic that will tell the story of Edward Snowden starting from the time he enlisted in the US army. In this 2 hour feature, we will explore the events leading up to the release of classified information on the National Security Agency’s various surveillance programs.
Filming will begin January 2014 in Vancouver BC.
During production the entire budget will be made public and available for all to see at: www.snowden.sx
