A Canadian filmmaker is asking people to help fund his film project, one frame at a time.

Casey Walker launched a web site earlier this year to raise C$1,000,000 ($988,457) and is selling frames of the yet to-be-made movie over the Internet for C$10 a piece.

In return, investors will get a credit in his movie, advertisement rights on his site, as well as a cut in the profits if the film makes money.

So far he has sold more than 17,000 frames, bringing in about C$170,000, including the biggest single sale at C$52,560. Walker has also attracted investors from the United States, Europe and Canada.

He hopes to reach a million in four months.
