Top 3 Most Successfully Funded Films and Videos on Kickstarter

If you are an avid film producer, an ordinary movie enthusiast or a business savvy individual, crowdfunding platforms have opened up doors to unthreaded territories. Sites such as Kickstarter provide an avenue for film and video makers to gather funding for new projects as well as to get feedback or information from the general public.

And Now Here’s a Kickstarter to Raise Money for Educational Live-Action Role Playing

And Now Here’s a Kickstarter to Raise Money for Educational Live-Action Role Playing

For a nice change of pace, here’s an innovation in education that’s got absolutely nothing to do with iPads.

And I know how we can…

Crowdfunding makes its way to Broadway

bilde

When Jeff Bowen’s off-Broadway musical “Now. Here. This.” closed last year, he and his collaborators were left with some great things — plenty of good reviews, some new fans and memories. That was great, but what they really wanted was a cast album. A recording would be both a great marketing tool and a souvenir. But “Now. Here. This.” wasn’t a blockbuster Broadway show, and it had already ended its run. Major record labels weren’t exactly beating a path to his door to get it recorded. So Bowen, who starred in the show as well as wrote the songs and lyrics, turned to the show’s…
