A production company has a vision for an FC Cincinnati documentary -- and it's taking to internet crowdfunding to make the vision a reality.

Spontaneous Productions launched a Kickstarter campaign Friday with the goal of raising $5,000 to film and produce "HomeTeam Advantage," a film "about fans, supporters, partners, and home town pride," according to the fundraising page.

"FC Cincinnati (FCC), is truly a representation of who, what, and why we stand #CincyProud at every home match," the page reads. "Breaking national attendance records pales in comparison to FCC’s real success; not just creating a local fan base, but a local extension of the team itself. 

"'HomeTeam Advantage' seeks to capture and explore the unique dynamics between the supporters and FCC, ultimately creating a new benchmark for rising futbol teams nationwide."

The film would be broken up into three 15 minute parts and would be available to the public for free, according to the Kickstarter page.

Regarding foreseeable obstacles, the page says "there are no true problems that would crush this story, because this is the story of all the fans, and residents that have come out in droves to support and represent their city."

Spontaneous Productions mentions projects filmed in Dayton, Ohio, and in Over-the-Rhine; the projects are listed as "Miami Valley School" and "Pleasantry OTR" on the company's website. The website also lists one crew member, Filmmaker Erin Kirby, as a graduate from Xavier University. 

The deadline for the Kickstarter campaign is Sept. 8.
