Wreckamovie is a collaborative film production platform, where anybody can come, set up his own film production and find a community to collaborate with, or find interesting film productions and become a collaborator in a worknet. Its aim is to make filmmaking easier, more effective and possible for everyone. [3]



Star Wreck Studios Oy Ltd and Wreckamovie were created by a group of filmmakers from Finland, who in 2005 created the freely downloadable Star Trek parody movie Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning, which has been changing the whole chain of filmmaking. It gained fame on the internet for being created and distributed by a community of enthusiasts over the internet and for its spectacular special effects only made on a shoestring budget and standard home computers. The experiences of the group creating the aforementioned film, which was their first feature film, led them to develop a platform that's open and easy to use for everyone.[4]


Wreckamovie is considered a model example of the potential of Web 2.0 according to Cisco Systems Finland Oy. As a business model it presents the exact opposite of the traditional way of making movies. With it a community creates and distributes the film, and only then, once popularity has already been gained, profitability steps in. [5]

Wreckamovie serves all kinds of audiovisual productions, from short films and music videos all the way to full feature-length films. In it anyone can summon a community around one's movie or any audiovisual project and ask for assistance in desired tasks for the production.[3] The service makes it possible to produce films together with the community, and thus to create a real interaction with the audience right from the development stage.[6]

The service doesn't make difference between "professionals" and "amateurs", but emphasizes on enthusiasm. However, the community recognizes combining both enthusiasm and professionalism will yield the best results of all. [7]

In addition to internet, the creators want to distribute movies in every possible way ranging from traditional movie screens to cell phones.[8] Then the existing community serves as a strong potential base for viral marketing.[4]
