Produced over 4 years with shoots in 9 countries, this feature documentary has many lessons to reveal and many great behind-the-scenes...
stories from the filmmakers. How do you land Zachary Levi (Chuck, Tangled) as a narrator? How did Kickstarter work as a funding source? Are film festivals important? Why the long production schedule? How does an indie make money? …and more!
This documentary captures how the classic board game of MONOPOLY became a worldwide cultural phenomenon, and follows the colorful players who come together to compete for the title of MONOPOLY World Champion.
