Don’t Flatter Yourself, Flattr These Great Creators Instead
So, you’ve heard of sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, right? I first found Kickstarter earlier this year (thanks to the guys behind the Leisure Suit Larry video game) and I think everyone discovered indiegogo when that bus monitor got harassed and was (overly) rewarded with $600k+. Well, Dailymotion has a similar crowdfunding capability known as ‘Flattr.’ The ‘social micropayment’ service is a simple way to donate to your favorite creators. So, how does it work?
I know you hate to read, so just watch this…
So, who in the holy hell should you Flattr? How about these guys…
“How To Be A DJ” is an inFAUXmercial from Tyler Gildin, a young comedian with a penchant for crappy sports teams, a dependence on technology and a case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He’s able to relate with America’s youth while still making fun of America’s old.
“Today of All Days” is an action comedy about a groom that mistakenly gets pulled into a gun fight by his best friend 30 minutes before his wedding. Everyone can relate to that, right? It’s directed by Jared Ward and written by co-stars Drew Cohn and Josh Negrin. Check out more of the series here.
Hey ADD | ADHD sufferers, do you like mashups? Then “Walking In Your Mind” is for you. We got Inception, Jay-Z, Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine, Rod Stewart, Kill Bill, and more coming together thanks to Ithaca Audio. Your mind’s not so bad after all. Put down the gun.
There you have it. Gotta give it up for these dreamers who dropped dough to make you a happier soul. So, return the flavor and Flattr. I don’t need to remind you about that time you supported the Kickstarter project to drop a grand piano onto a pyramid of champagne glasses. Whatever happened with that, dude?
