photo-main-350x262

by Alan von Kalckreuth The Alternative Funding Forum, a one-day mega-fest of insight and networking is taking place on November 21st at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. For me this is all part of the new world of film entertainment, because change is a-coming, ready or not!  At a committee meeting in 2008 I was amused to realize we were prepping to bring on board a RED camera… the very same day the Hollywood Reporter (once owned by my good friend Bill Miles and his wife Tichi Wilkerson) was reporting that Lionsgate was pulling out of its independent film track.  Here we were sitting around…

SEC’s Crowdfunding Rule Proposal Turns One Year-Old – But Still Not Final

By Matt Kitzi, Armstrong Teasdale LLP,  States, issuers and investors find different crowdfunding methods for raising capital while waiting for the SEC On October 23, 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission staff proposed a 500+ page set of rules and regulations for Title III of the 2012 JOBS Act, better known as Crowdfunding. Crowdfunding was the most publicly discussed portion of the JOBS Act, but the Reg D general advertising change was finalized first, and the Reg A+ component may have generated more excitement in some circles. Now, one year after their proposal, the federal Crowdfunding rules have not been adopted or finalized, so the nascent…

The Joy of My Kickstarter Fail

The Joy of My Kickstarter Fail

BY Alicia S. Writer, Filmmaker at Creedmoria, LLC   Last year, I wrote “My 7-Step Guide to Mastering Kickstarter. I hope” for the Wall Street Journal Speakeasy blog on my expectations and challenges with crowdfunding and guess what? I mastered nothing. Total fail. My goal had been to raise $60k. In the end, unfortunately, 176 wonderful backers who pledged $28,296 (assuming that I reached my goal…which I didn’t) equaled $0. The money raised was going to enable me to make my feature film, Creedmoria. I had some incredible cast members lined up and was in the process of searching for our lead actress. After ten years of working on the…

Hype About Crowdfunding Is Too Good to Be True

Hype About Crowdfunding Is Too Good to Be True

BY DAVID NILSSEN Why I Think the Hype About Crowdfunding Is Too Good to Be True Crowdfunding in one form or another has been around for years but has become a sexy buzzword of late. The majority of news articles about it are positive, to the point where many seem to view crowdfunding as a cure-all for small-business funding woes. But this hype has clouded a number of pitfalls both entrepreneurial hopefuls and prospective investors need to be made aware of before jumping on board. Crowdfunding has little application to business unless an entrepreneur only needs a small amount of money to get started. For projects requiring…

Woodstock Film Festival: Panel sheds light on burgeoning practice

Woodstock Film Festival: Panel sheds light on burgeoning practice

Woodstock Film Festival: Crowdfunding – it isn’t a dirty word “Today, just about everyone I know is doing a crowdfunding thing,” said Meira Blaustein. It’s true. Today’s creative workers are asking their friends, and their friends – and so on, and so on – for both emotional and monetary help to finish their projects. Thanks to the internet, an emerging sense of global collaboration and a greater variety of avenues, it has become easier for creative workers to find funding opportunities. But there is still risk, and there are still issues to tackle when attempting to fund through friends, family and regular people. In the…

Closing Hollywood’s gender gap: Women directors crowdfund film

Closing Hollywood’s gender gap: Women directors crowdfund film

Catherine Hardwicke, Julie Taymor and Julie-Anne Robinson are all celebrated directors with the same complaint: They had no role models when they started out. “I certainly didn’t know any female directors when I came to L.A.,” Hardwicke, director of “Thirteen” and “Twlight,” told TheWrap. Taymor, too, lamented “the worship of the enfant terrible — the brilliant young male.” “If woman is a maverick or an auteur, she often is labeled a bitch,” the “Frida” and “Across the Universe” director said. Robinson (left) is a Golden Globe-nominated director who has a large catalogue of episodic TV work, including “The Middle,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Now…
