‘CROWDFUNDED FILMS GO TO SUNDANCE FESTIVAL’ VIA CROWDSOURCING.ORG’S @ANTONROOT



Special thanks to Crowdsourcing.org's Anton Root for his article 'Crowdfunded Films Go to Sundance,' where he spoke briefly with Film Courage's Karen Worden and David Branin on crowdfunding

Here is the excerpt from Anton’s post on Crowdsourcing.org:

'Two people intimately familiar with crowdfunding for films are Karen Worden and David Branin, hosts of the Film Courage podcast and filmmakers themselves. (They also created the Film Courage site, which has great tips for those looking at crowdfunding their movie.) The pair isn’t surprised that a number of crowdfunded films are going to the festival.

“You’re seeing a higher caliber filmmaker [turn to crowdfunding], a higher caliber of product and talent,” Branin told Crowdsourcing.org.
That's part of the reason why Branin and Worden also believe any sort of stigma against crowdfunded films that may have existed in the past is going away, especially with money for films getting increasingly
harder to come by.

But, that doesn’t at all mean that crowdfunding films will get any easier moving forward. With more high caliber projects appearing on platforms, Worden thinks the initial “honeymoon period” with crowdfunding is wearing off, and it will take serious efforts for individuals with little or no fan recognition to reach their campaign goals.....'
