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? Crowdfunding isn’t just a fundraising tool: it’s an opportunity to develop a direct connection with your audience, which is essential for building a sustainable film career.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • How to find, talk to, and learn from your audience

  • How to pick the perfect crowdfunding goal and incentives

  • What goes into a successful crowdfunding communication strategy

  • How to grow your audience after you rock out your campaign

Fun fact: attendees of this workshop have a 100% success rate on Seed&Spark!
