2) Film Courage Written Q & A - $25.00 (what you'd pay for an SD card) - Receive at least five (5) questions from FilmCourage.com on you, your project and creative process. The Q & A will then be posted (with your written response) on FilmCourage.com and promote via our social media (FB, Twitter, Tumblr, G + and more social sharing sites). We must receive the Paypal payment first and will need about three (3) days to do research. Once posted, we can include your crowdfunding campaign video, trailer, a few photos and links to you and your project(s). Here are a few examples of the Q & A style interviews. To purchase via PayPal and get payment instructions - contact us here.
3) Submit Your Project's Press Release for Promotion OR Write Your Own Article About Your Project - $15.00 via Paypal (What you'd pay for a movie ticket). - Up to this point we have been able to offer filmmakers/artists to share their experiences and projects with written articles that we publish. Because of the time and energy (i.e., editing, uploading photos, hyperlinking, embedding videos, emailing back and forth, etc.) that the articles take, we now can only offer to publish articles on FilmCourage.com as a service... the demand has been overwhelming and we were close to shutting it down. After much discussion, we have have decided to offer it as a service for $15.00 via Paypal as we hate to close this avenue entirely to our fellow filmmakers. In addition to your article appearing on FilmCourage.com, we will also share it via our Facebook Page, Twitter, Tumblr and Google Plus. Here are a few examples of the press release style posts 1, 2, and 3.

We generally put in at least 4 hours each preparing for our interviews (depending on how much information is available on you/your project), often times it is many more hours than that. The interview itself will be for one (1) hour about your project, film, acting work, book, service, etc. We will edit the interview into multiple videos and upload them to our YouTube channel (the Film Courage Youtube receives approx. 120,000 plus video views per month). We will then share the videos on our Facebook page and on Twitter as they become available.
We release our video interviews over the course of many weeks (and months) so this serves as a long-tail form of promotion for you and your work. The first video segment will be posted within a week and a half of the initial interview. In general, the first four (4) videos will be posted the fastest.
Although we cannot guarantee how many views your video will receive, none of our completed interview series have less than a 1,000 total views. And in many cases at least one video from the series will surpass 1,000 by itself.
