The MovieGoer App: You are More Influential than Roger Ebert. Nettle’s MovieGoer app makes you the critic I want to listen to.
Nettle’s new MovieGoer app is only one example of the dominating trend. The Google Ventures-backed startup created MovieGoer with the goal of making going to the movies a more social experience. With Facebook and Twitter integrated into the app, MovieGoer lets you comment on movies you see and follow the movies your friends are seeing too. This is not a totally novel idea. Popular movie sites like Rotten Tomatoes have already gone social, allowing you to comment on and like content on their site through your Facebook account.
Nettle is capitalizing on something that’s increasingly more true with digital everything. The voices we trust, and will continue trusting, are the ones that appear eloquently and efficiently through all our social networks. Follow Kyle @KyleKouri.

How 'Titanic 3D' Will Have an Awesomely Social Premiere [EXCLUSIVE] James Cameron's historic blockbuster Titanic will be re-released next month, but its 3D big-screen presentation isn't the only modern twist.
The film's March 27 premiere in London will also feature a possibly unprecedented level of social integration. The event will be live streamed at live.titanicredcarpet.com, where the company BumeBox will be integrating interactive conversational capabilities for Twitter-savvy fans at home. As Alex Zane hosts the red carpet arrivals and never-before-seen footage is interspersed with the live coverage, tweeters at home will be able to join the fun by submitting questions for arrivals and providing their own commentary using the hashtag #titanicredcarpet. BumeBox has provided similar setups for other brands and events including eBay, Universal Sports and Marc Jacobs. Click here to see how BumeBox worked with Marc Jacobs during New York Fashion Week. "We build the platform backward from whatever their objective is," Farhner says.
Grassroots Social Media Campaigns Help Crowdfund Indie Films. Don't be alarmed if you're approached on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace or Foursquare to make a donation to a film. Indie filmmakers are bullish on social media, using tenuous relationships with social media friends to fund their films. Some films have raised as much as $25,000 or more (or so they say), while others struggle to raise enough money to feed their film crew for a weekend. Indiegogo, Biracy and Kickstarter are three social media crowdfunding platforms that facilitate the process of collecting contributions.
Scan the stream on Twitter on any given day and you'll see increasing numbers of filmmakers asking for money. Pleas go hand in hand with a deadline the filmmakers have to raise the money, or forfeit all of it (Kickstarter). One such film is "Legend of Black Lotus" -- a film, which as June 10, 2010 has only five days remaining to complete its funding campaign on Indiegogo. This project is a short film incarnation of a proposed feature film.
