FilmFunds Launches Mobile Search App For Film Info
Los Angeles-based FilmFunds, a new startup focused on connecting aspiring and professional filmmakers with financiers and actors, said this week that it is launching a new, mobile search app which recognizes and provides information on movie trailers, posters, billboards, and ads. The firm said its app, which will be available for free at the iTunes store, allows users to take a picture of movie related items to recognize and provide information on those movies. FilmFunds.com is an online site which helps filmmakers to post information on their projects, providing both potential fans with information on those projects, as well as help filmmakers build support and funding for those projects. FilmFunds is headed by Jason Scoggins, who founded ItsontheGrid.com, which he sold to The Wrap in 2011.
