Directors turn to crowd sourcing for funding

Crowd sourcing sites like Kickstarter provide aspiring directors with an alternative source of funding.

    The world's most famous independent film festival - Sundance - is under way in the US state of Utah.

    The event is a chance for low-profile film makers to show their projects. 

    But with studios unwilling to fund every film, many struggle to get their ideas made into movies.
