For those of you out there that are trying to source funding for their next production, you’ve most likely considered crowdfunding at some stage. Whether it will work for you or not is debatable, but it will certainly depend entirely on how much research/groundwork you do first.
Personally I have crowdfunded before to different levels of success. One of my campaigns would not be considered a financial success by any means, but the campaign connected me with people who provided free access to equipment and people who became part of the crew. So it was a success in a different way.
It can be stressful creating a crowdfunding campaign, and making the pitch video can often be most daunting. What do you put in a 90 second video that will attract people to your production? Hopefully this video will help you there:
Good luck to all of you creating campaigns. Make sure you send me a link.
