Are you ready to launch your crowd-funding campaign?  Are you sure?   In an environment where we are seeing new campaigns launched everyday, how is your campaign going to rise above the noise?

Film Courage hosts Karen Worden and David Branin lead a comprehensive look at crowd-funding with panelists who have raised nearly $100,000 combined.  Each with their own lessons and story to share.

Meg Pinsonneault (Feast of the Foolish), Lucas McNelly (Up Country, A Year Without Rent), Zak Forsman (Down and Dangerous), Victoria Westcott (Locked in a Garage Band) & Distribber CEO & Chief of Distribution at IndieGogo Adam Chapnick.

Crowdfunding for 2011 and Beyond is two hours and forty-five minutes of straight-talk about what it really takes to reach your crowd-funding goal.  Nothing is sugar-coated.  This audio series is loaded with practical ideas, insights, what works and what doesn’t work.

“This panel convinced me to do a crowd-funding campaign for my next feature film. It also told me how to run it.
                                                      -Filmmaker Jonathan Schiefer
TALKING POINTS (A small sample of what is covered.)

-Debunking the myth that crowd funding is “easy” and why it’s a full time job.

-How to determine how much you can raise.

-How the length of your campaign can affect your success.

-Why IndieGoGo is setting you up to fail or is it?

-Do backers generally back the project or the people behind it?

-What time of day is best to tweet?

-Is crowd-funding for everyone?  Who should not crowd-fund?

-What separates people who donate thousands of dollars from those that donate less than $100?

-Changes at IndieGogo you may not be aware of yet.

-How crowd-funding affects your film in ways outside of just finances.

“This was a fantastic panel that really got into the nitty-gritty details and issues ever-present in a crowdfunding campaign. I was there for the recording and despite many years of crowdfunding experience I still came away with a bunch of good ideas and information.
Well done all!”

                                                      -Filmmaker Dom Zook
