The following trailer offers a sneak preview of the coming documentary, “The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin,” which is still in production but was previewed at Bitcoin 2013. According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), the film is scheduled for release in October 2013:

Backed by Daronimax Media, Fair Acres Media and 44th Floor, “The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin” features actor/musician Ben Bledsoe as the film’s narrator.

The documentary follows the journey of a married 35-year-old computer programmer with three young boys from Pittsburgh who become obsessed with Bitcoin. Along the way, the film also features some names familiar in the cryptocurrency world: Gavin Andresen, Charlie Shrem, Roger Ver, Mike Caldwell (Casascius) and Erik Voorhees, among others.

The Hollywood Reporter reported last month that the filmmakers are “using the controversial robo-money to complete production” through crowdfunding.

“The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin” is produced and directed by Nicholas Mross.
