€10k Crowdfunding Bootcamp for Filmmakers
Event on 2016-10-02 09:00:00
Most filmmakers don't and there simply aren't enough grants to go around, which means if you want to raise a budget for your film, you need to take back control. After researching every Kickstarter film project that had ever run, over 50,000, I began to notice patterns. Patterns of success. And patterns of failure. And I realised something really important. Success is not a matter of chance, by breaking down every single element of those winning campaigns we can 'hack' crowdfunding & produce something amazing; In this one day, intenseive Bootcamp I'm going to guide you through every stage of planning, creating and running your film crowdfunding campaign to raise a €10,000 budget for your film. Based on data research on over 50,000 film crowdfunding campaigns as well as interviews with filmmakers who ran successful campaigns and with some of the top people at major crowdfunding platforms and services, this is years of my life poured into information that will give you everything you need to take on crowdfunding in the most confident way.
