The actors who play Benny, the vampire and Hannah, the angel on Supernatural are moving to more earthly roles in The Legend of Davy Crockett.
The Internet is creating more ways for new and unique projects to be produced. Cinecoup is a new platform working to find and support independent films that appeal to fans. One of the projects in the race for funding is The Legend of Davy Crockett. Ty Olsson has been cast as Davy Crockett. Erica Caroll plays Elizabeth Patton.
So how does this work? CineCoup’s model is
The CineCoup Film Accelerator is a disruptive studio model for indie filmmakers to develop, market and produce feature films. Filmmaking teams apply to CineCoup with a movie trailer then advance through a gamified selection funnel using CineCoup’s social web platform. Our model has been specifically designed to help filmmakers develop their projects and pitches by building fan support through online marketing while generating new creative content.
All filmmakers who participate stand to gain valuable audience feedback, social media savvy and a professional pitch package bolstered by fan support. The Final 5 projects will be optioned for development and one will be selected for (up to) $1 million (CDN) in production financing and a release in Cineplex theatres.
The Legend of Davy Crockett is currently one of the top 60 projects in contention for production financing through CineCoup. Voting to select the top 30 projects will start Monday April 20 at 6pm PDT and run through April 24.
Ty Olsson explains the Cinecoup process
In order to move through the voting process each project must meet certain mission goals. One of these goals was making a trailer for the project.
We also have two posters created to prmote the movie.

Good luck to the creators of this project. It would be wonderful to see Ty and Erica in this production.
