And be part of the first global, fan-financed film where backers share in all net revenue.
The movie business is one of the last industries not radically improved by the internet... We’re about to change that. MAD INVEST is a revolutionary new concept that enables fans to directly and transparently share in the revenue generated by the MAD HEIDI film.
Soft cap must be reached by Thursday, December 31st 2020 12:00 AM CET. Otherwise all investments will be refunded (read Proposal.pdf for more details).
The original Heidi book has been translated into more than 50 languages and sold more than 50 million copies. 12 feature films, 8 animation films and 5 TV-Series have been produced around the globe. It’s a story that moved the hearts of whole generations around the world. Time to reinvent this story and pump some fresh blood into it.
Now all grown up, Heidi is just a girl from the Alps in an alternative Switzerland that has fallen under fascist rule. Little does she know that her yearning for personal freedom will be the spark that ignites a revolution. From fondue torture to death by chocolate, MAD HEIDI is an action-adventure horror-comedy interpretation of the much-loved children's storybook character Heidi, and a true Swissploitation film. If you liked Mad Max, Kill Bill, or Iron Sky, then you'll love MAD HEIDI. Watch our promo teaser below.
MAD HEIDI has already proven an amazing traction. Since producing the MAD HEIDI promo teaser, a wide and active fanbase has been put in motion through social media and the MAD HEIDI webpage.
Crowdfunding Gross Revenue
From cosplay challenges to reaction videos, the passion and creativity of our fans is not only great fun, but provides the type of social marketing that money can’t buy. We will continue to actively expand our community, engage the fans and give them exclusive access to the film production. The fans are our most valuable asset. They multiply our marketing efforts and grow our market.
MAD HEIDI will be globally available on streaming from day one after the release, following a pre-release phase, where the film is available for fan events, festivals and sponsor screenings. This allows us to minimize the number of middlemen, minimize piracy and therefore maximize the profits. Straight from the creators to the fans. In comparison to traditional film distribution with all the distributors and sales agents, revenues are increased up to 6 times!
Become a Mad Investor!
For as little as CHF 500, you can become a Mad Investor and get your piece of the cheese. Only about 1'000 investors can take part, so don’t miss this opportunity! Every share participates in the film’s revenues, such as digital streams or downloads, sales of DVDs, Blurays and TV-Sales.
Investors can get additional exclusive privileges such set visits, premiere tickets or participation in merchandise revenues depending on the amount of investment. The money we receive from selling the shares is used to produce and market the film. Please read our proposal paper for detailed info.
Instead of sending around a paper contract, your investment is automatically written into a digital smart contract on the blockchain, operated by our partner FilmChain, where you can monitor revenue as it comes in and access any returns that are generated. FilmChain acts as a collection agent, which means that all revenues will be collected by them and then immediately and automatically distributed among all participants. It's based on blockchain technology to ensure the highest levels of security. No paperwork is required, because it is automated and secure. Welcome to the future!
The process is automated and paperless.
You can track revenue streams at all times.
Revenues are automatically distributed among investors, tamperproof.
The soft cap deadline is December 31st 2020. Until then we must have raised at least 1 million Swiss Francs. The deadline may be postponed until April 30th, 2021, at our discretion, else all investors will be paid back.
The film shoot is scheduled for spring/summer 2021 and the film will be released in 2022. Revenues for investors will start to collect and pay out as soon as we have sold all Mad Invest Shares or else 10 days before the worldwide digital release of the film.
Swissploitation Films LLC was founded in 2019 by film-industry veterans Tero Kaukomaa (IRON SKY; DANCER IN THE DARK), Valentin Greutert (ONE WAY TRIP, PARADISE WAR-THE STORY OF BRUNO MANSER), and the highly talented, up-and-coming director Johannes Hartmann.
The three are on a mission to break new ground in the way films are financed and distributed, levelling the playing field for small, independent film companies and allowing fans to participate like never before. Swissploitation Films is responsible for the funding, production, marketing and distribution of MAD HEIDI.
