On a lookout to reach independent film/documentary makers making social awareness films on Covid-19, Crowdera has launched a new venture called, Yellow Scooter.

Crowdera, a SaaS-based fee-free global online fundraising platform for non-profits and social innovators, has launched a new venture Yellow Scooter for empowering and helping out young, talented and upcoming artists amidst the lockdown. Yellow Scooter Studio offers fair and transparent business practices and a new hybrid fundraising model to the artists from the entertainment world.

Yellow Scooter Studios aims to empower the rebel filmmakers who want to retain their creative control while making a film dictated by their vision. YSS will help such filmmakers build their audiences, raise funds through Crowdera – its crowdfunding platform, and build careers.

To begin with, Yellow Scooter Studios plans to reach out to those filmmakers who wish to make social awareness movies related to Covid-19. Films having a social message to spread awareness shall be selected and supported with 25% to 50% contribution in their production costs. The selection criteria of the movies will be based on specific and transparent parameters.

Commenting on his new venture, Chet Jainn, Founder & CEO Crowdera, said, “Yellow Scooter Studio has begun as a simple platform for raising funds for films and creative content, but we intend to provide a 360 -degree support for all aspects of film-making that an independent filmmaker (non-studios) requires. Think of this as an attempt to create an alternate reality for independent filmmakers where they have all the support just as a studio project receives. A lot will change but good things take time.”.

​Yellow Scooter will help creators to move from funding through distribution by investing in partnerships that provide education, resources, and tools to create and exhibit content that matters to audiences.

“Retaining creative control and ownership of their craft should be the fundamental right of every filmmaker. The hybrid fundraising model that combines donations and rewards crowdfunding with investment syndication can help the filmmaker achieve their creative goals while providing an opportunity to the high net worth film enthusiasts to be the co-producer & stakeholder of the film; Yellow Scooter will bring the two together and we expect the result will be phenomenal,” concluded Chet Jainn.

😍 Taking slow, deep breaths can help to keep out distracting thoughts. To engage in deep breathing, try to find a quiet place in your home where you can sit or lie down comfortably. Then, close your eyes and focus on taking slow breaths for at least 10 minutes. 🌏 While breathing in, ensure the air coming in through your nose fully fills your lungs, and your lower belly rises. Breathe out through your mouth and repeat. #Inspirational #Charity #instadaily #coronawarriors #DidYouKnow #crowdfunding #motivational #summer #lockdown #COVID19 #Freefundraising #WorldUnites #StayHome #I4I #Share #Love #Instagood #tbt #F4F #like4like #SpreadLoveNotFear #MakingTheDifference #ProtectYourselfAndOthersToo #SupportDailywageEarners #AbundanceStartsWithGiving #Crowdera #humaninterest #support #repost #inspiringpeople

Crowdera’s previous successful fundraising campaigns for the entertainment sector include RK/ RKAY by Rajat Kapoor, Disguise by Riya Mukherjee, and many other musical bands.

Yellow Scooter Studio aims to be a disruptive film studio that will help filmmakers raise money, build an audience, connect with other creators, and generate employment in the entertainment industry. YSS is powered by Crowdera, a global leader in online fundraising and fund syndication.

The platform is functionally ready to operate in 150+ countries, however, the current focus is to support Indian filmmakers from Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and other regional languages.

Besides India, the platform will soon start supporting crowdfunding for independent films in Singapore as well by end of this year. The plan is to create a community of content creators helping each other. By 2025, the company intends to have supported 1000 films in getting produced and exhibited, while also supporting music videos, short films, and documentaries.

It is important to be kind because everyone has a right of their opinions and suggestions. 🤝 We understand that some people are different from you, while other people have disabilities which makes them really struggle. Kindness will make them feel loved and like people like them. Just because people are different doesn't mean they need to be treated differently. It is important to be kind because it makes you feel good about yourself. Doing things for other people helping them with maths or homework or anything it just makes you feel warm that you accomplished something. Kindness is a give and get thing a bit like respect. If you want respect you must give respect. Kindness is the same thing if you want kindness you have to give kindness. #Inspirational #Charity #instadaily #coronawarriors #DidYouKnow #crowdfunding #motivational #summer #lockdown #COVID19 #Freefundraising #WorldUnites #StayHome #I4I #Share #Love #Instagood #tbt #F4F #like4like #SpreadLoveNotFear #MakingTheDifference #ProtectYourselfAndOthersToo #SupportDailywageEarners #AbundanceStartsWithGiving #Crowdera #humaninterest #support #repost #inspiringpeople
