Crowdfunding Movies

Filmmakers seeking money for movies have been jumping onto the various crowdfunding platforms to seek sponsorship monies. And if you’ve been following the trends, you know that crowfunding is becoming an increasingly viable way for filmmakers to raise money from sponsors.

And even with the buzz surrounding crowdfunding, whenever I put on a filmmaking workshop, I am always surprised by the amount of filmmakers who never heard of the concept.

If you’re a filmmaker seeking money, I’d like to provide you with two filmmaker friendly crowdfunding resources.

Untapped Crowdfunding Site For Filmmakers

As a filmmaker, one of the challenges you face is how to finance a film. When I was starting out, things were much different. Back then, if you wanted to finance a movie, you had to cross your fingers and wait for someone to grant you permission…

The problem is, many people in Hollywood are still waiting for someone else to give them permission. Permission to make a movie. Permission to be successful. Permission to live the best life possible. UGH!

Here is a little secret. If you’re looking to raise money for your movie, set up a crowdfunding campaign. This allows you to test your concept from day one. And if successful, crowdfunding also allows you to find the people who may be most interested in your movie. In addition to providing you with funding, some of these folks will help you spread word of mouth.

Two popular crowdfunding platforms are IndieGoGo and KickStarter.
