In this economy people have found many creative ways to raise money for creative projects.

But so many filmmakers are turning to online sites like Kickstarter to fund their projects that one Birmingham woman decided she really had to stand out to be heard.

Jen West and her team created a site to promote their ideas and raise needed funds. For a small donation, supporters can then vote on one of three short film ideas. The one with the most votes will get the green light from West and her team.

"You are essentially making a film happen...choosing which one we are going to get to do," West said.
