CROWDFUNDING - MISSION STATEMENT


Why we need your support? /////

In a time of ICO hype, when crypto has become synonymous with easy money it is not hard to forget why the developers, designers and pioneers started it all. There are projects out there whose aim is to use the same technology to make the world a better place. This film is going to tell their story. And we can make it together.

Decentralization is not an idealistic dream anymore; we can already observe its ideals becoming reality. Open-sourced blockchain is being used to implement new ways of voting, to monitor corruption, provide transparency in the way financial aid is distributed, to make bank services more accessible... We are not far off living in a world without third parties or central authorities and their often unnecessary and even malign influence. So the moment to capture that change, and tell the world about that set of values is now.

Like the technological projects it seeks to understand, this movie should be crowdfunded by the community of decentralization enthusiasts. So support this doc by making your donation to the Refugium Foundation, a non-profit organization created specifically to produce “Decent” and - after the film’s premiere - to trigger a discussion about ideas described in the movie. As part of the “Decent documentary” community you will be regularly updated with our plans and achievements on the course of the film production.

Contact us if you feel you can efficiently inspire us by tossing an idea for a project that we should take a closer look at in a documentary.

Please review all the details regarding the crowdfunding by pressing the DONATE dot on the right side.

Let’s make this “Decent” documentary together!


Who’s making this film?

“Decent” documentary is being made by a group formed by a journalist and cryptospace communication expert, an international aid specialist and a scholar with passion for film cameras. They met in the Middle East working there, each of them representing their own craft but sharing the same passion for documentary filmmaking. They decided to collaborate and make their own documentaries.


Marek Osiecimski Director /////

Marek was recently gaining his experiance and knowledge about decentralized technologies as Golem Project’s Chief Communications Officer. Before that for ten years he was a journalist, a reporter and foreign correspondent for the biggest private news channel in Central Europe - TVN24. He reported from the conflict zones in Ukraine and Middle East. He also specialised in reportages depicting the influence of technology on lives of people. His documentaries “God’s Shale” (about fracking in USA) and “The Time Bomb on the Baltic” (about corrosion of chemical weaponry thrown to the Baltic after World War II) were among the most acclaimed. He loves historical topics, especially when it requires in-depth research using archival film materials. It helped him to create documentary films about the lives of Poles and national minorities in pre-war Poland. He started his career in newspapers in Poland and USA.

Sebastian Strzelecki Cinematographer /////

Sebastian holds a Ph.D. in linguistic studies, he is a professor and teaches tv journalism in the University of Warsaw, he’s a cameraman in TVN24 news channel, the author of cinematography for several documentaries; one of his latest works “Zakopiańczycy” about Polish school of Himalayan mountaineering received a main prize at Ushuaia Mountain Film International Festival. He was awarded a Medal for Sacrifice and Courage by the president of Poland for saving a man and his dog drowning in the frozen lake. First of all he is befriended with his Ursa Mini Blackmagic camera and Sigma Cine lenses and knows how to use it to to turn what he sees in the viewfinder into a poetry on the screen. At the University of Warsaw, he’s starting a scientific project using drones as “narrative machine”. He’s actually flying drones and filming with it in our documentary. Loves to play flute and recite poetry but only when nobody’s listening. He’s also a very humble man and would never write non of the above himself.

Anna Konieczna Producer /////

Anna studied journalism and international relations and uses that experience in the best way possible. She gave up her career as a PR specialist in an international advertising agency to become a communication expert for the Polish NGO. She is helping journalists to show the organization work in such countries as Ethiopia, Uganda, Lebanon, Palestine, Georgia or Ukraine. One of her greatest skills is becoming an interpreter and connector between cultures. She is very spiritual - she writes poems and practices Kundalini Yoga. At the same time, she’s very practical when it comes to film production. She’s ruthless about creating, keeping and fitting within the assumed budget. But her biggest weapon is her smile - it wins over everyone she meets, breaks barriers, builds bridges...
