Crowdfunding to Build Independence
150 min.
Thinking about making an amazing movie or show? GREAT! We wanna watch it. But first: how are you going to fund it, and - when you’re finished - who’s going to watch it? Most people think about crowdfunding simply as a fundraising tool, but it is so much more than that: it’s a great way to start (or continue) developing a direct connection with your audience, which, as we all know, is essential for building a sustainable film career that leads to distribution and the opportunity to, you know, make more than one thing.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:
  • Why audience building is essential for a film career (and crowdfunding)
  • How to define, find, talk to, and grow your audience
  • How to prepare for a successful crowdfunding campaign (incl. goal, incentives, communication plan)
  • Why staged financing might be right for you

This session led by Emily Best and sponsored by Seed & Spark and G-Technology.
Co-Presented by Women in Film Dallas.
