If you didn’t know there is a website called Kick Starter which allows users to post their ides for movies, games etc. This website is free to use and allows any form of media to be created, if people like the idea they can support it by sending money which helps fund the project and if the creators have set up goals then it could allow for more development for example with a game if they reach $150 then a exclusive item will be released for everyone.
My example is the game known as Darkest Dungeon (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460250988/darkest-dungeon-by-red-hook-studios)
This game started off with a small team making the game and due to the support of the audience the game made lots of progress and the game was finished way before the date the creators had originally told. The power of audience is what makes this website work, it helps produce independent media which the audience wants but may not be able to make it into main stream media.
