Students seeking funding for Eve Online documentary through crowdsourcing

A group of Swedish media students are currently raising money to fund a documentary called A Tale of Internet Spaceships about massively multiplayer online game Eve Online and its community.

If funded, the documentary will follow players who take part in Eve Online Fanfest, an annual celebrate that takes place in Reykjavík, Iceland's capital. The festival is three days long, and players spend their time discussing, playing and bonding over their Eve experiences. According to the project's page, it will aim to "capture the spirit of the game and explore the sometimes complicated relationship between said community and CCP Games themselves."

The project is being funded through Indiegogo, and its creators are asking for $6,000 to cover the cost of production. There are three different reward tiers for backers: the $10 tier, which is worth your name in the film's credits; the $50 tier, which warrants a picture in the credits; and $100, which allows for a much larger portrait in the film's credits.

At the time of this posting, A Tale of Internet Spaceships has raised just over $800 of its $6,000 goal. The campaign will end on Monday, March 18.
