All such changes in the Rules will be effective from the Effective Date stated above.


The Project Manager Forum allows you, “Project Manager” to create and post a project “Project” to its site for the purpose of sharing information, meeting and collaborating with other members and receiving funding contributions from other registered users.


MovieHatch is not liable for any of your dealings with individuals or organizations on the site. MovieHatch is not responsible for any damage or loss incurred as a result of such interactions. All interactions are solely between you and such individuals and/or entities.

In the event of a dispute with any third party, you release MovieHatch, its officers, agents, employees and successors from claims, damages and demands of any kind, known or unknown, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes.


It is a breach of these Rules to include any false or misleading information in your Project Manager profile or follow-up responsibilities, in your Project profile, or with any communications with members providing contributions -financial or otherwise -to your Project.


The following are the requirements for creating and posting a Project in the Project Manager Forum.


Number 1.

The 1st step in creating a fundraising project using the MovieHatch Service is to register on the Site -create your personal profile by clicking on the registration link and filling in the required contact details.

The next step is to create a Project profile - once logged into the Site, you will need to create and submit a funding Project. You will need to include the following information: funding goal (amount you seek to receive for your Project), deadline date (1–60 days), project title, genre, medium (film, TV, web etc.), logline, synopsis, pitch, team member bios and photographs, list of acceptable funding support amounts and non-monetary thank you rewards. You are permitted to offer non-monetary rewards for the financial support of your Project, provided that this offering is lawful under all applicable laws, including state and federal securities laws, and complies with the terms and conditions of the Terms of Use of the Site and these Rules.


Number 3.

In order to receive the funding support/contributions, you will be required to designate a legal PayPal account into which the funds will be directed. Upon supplying the name of that entity, you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the Project with the authority to enter into the terms of this Agreement, and the responsibility and accountability for the use of any funds received for the Project. You understand that MovieHatch shall have no liability for your funding account with PayPal or your transactions or interactions with this processor.


Number 4.

All financial contributions made to a Project will be monitored and coordinated by MovieHatch and processed by PayPal.  Upon each financial contribution, you will immediately receive 92% of the amount, after PayPal processing fees are removed. Upon completion of the deadline date set, all financial support/contributions made to a Project will be calculated. The total project contributions, less third-party processing fees, MovieHatch commissions (stated below), and amounts already distributed to your account will be disbursed to the project  funding account as specified in the submission process. MovieHatch is not responsible for any error or omission in the funding account information you provide.

If you reach your Project campaign goal by your project deadline date, MovieHatch will receive a 4% commission on all funds received during the project campaign period. If your project campaign goal reaches a 50% - 99% achievement by your Project deadline date, MovieHatch will receive a 6% commission on all funds received during the project campaign period. If your Project campaign goal reaches less than 50% achievement by your Project deadline date, MovieHatch will receive an 8% commission on all funds received during the Project campaign period. It takes approximately 5 business days from the end of your Project campaign deadline date for any remaining funds that were contributed to be transferred to your account.
