Big Couch is the ‘crewfunding’ platform that empowers filmmakers to connect with crews that invest in projects they believe in. An innovative start-up, Big Couch is a part of the SIRIUS programme, funded by the UKTI and mentored by Oxygen tech-accelerator. As a film platform, Big Couch connects vetted crews with producers working on quality film projects. On one hand, we aim to energise the independent film market through a new concept of film production, based on shared economy principles. We call this crewfunding.
