We're going to try this. It might be a total disaster, but I'm thinking it won't be.

One of the great things about social media is how it's made it a lot easier to interact in a variety of ways with other filmmakers. It's a great learning tool and a great community building tool. Film Courage is a great example.

Behind the Scenes with 4 OF A KIND: Day 7

As promised, I'm back with a look behind the scenes of the campaign for Jack Marchetti's 4 OF A KIND.

Behind the Scenes with FOUR OF A KIND: Day 1

It's really easy to talk about a campaign from a distance, or with the benefit of hindsight. Any idiot can do that. But being a Monday Morning Quarterback is only helpful up to a point. Because as much as you research and plan and plot and scheme a Kickstarter campaign, it's like a game plan for a boxer. It all goes out the window as soon as the other guy punches you in the nose.

So I thought I'd take you behind the scenes of the campaign as it happens, a peek behind the curtain.
