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…

“Hollywood Will Permanently Adopt Crowdfunding”

“Hollywood Will Permanently Adopt Crowdfunding”

Indiegogo co-founder Danae Ringelmann doesn’t think it will be long until every studio in town is taking advantage of the crowdfunding model not just to raise an audience, but also to raise money, for their their own blockbuster ambitions. “Its not that far away, actually,” Ringelmann said at TheWrap’s Media Leadership Conference, TheGrill, Tuesday at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. “What we are going to see is studios recognizing the value of unleashing a fan base early before the film comes out, as a tactic to actually identify social influencers online.” “The way they will dabble in this,” she said,” is carve out a…

How Crowdfunding Tells the Story of a Hollywood Legend

How Crowdfunding Tells the Story of a Hollywood Legend

By Robert J. Mullins CFB Sr. Staff Writer: The classic Hollywood image of the film industry was parodied in the 1992 film “The Player,” in which Tim Robbins plays a studio executive constantly being pitched movie ideas like “It’s ‘Out of Africa’ meets ‘Pretty Woman,’” or “’Ghost’ meets ‘Manchurian Candidate.’” But today, you don’t have to grovel before a studio exec, you can just go online and pitch to the crowd. Film is one of the most active categories of crowdfunding tracked by the major platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and others. But the proliferation of film and video pitches to the crowd means those…

Unlocking Your Crowdfunding Campaign’s True Purpose

Unlocking Your Crowdfunding Campaign’s True Purpose

Guest blog: We as filmmakers must strive to create something more experiential than another movie campaign Everywhere you turn, it’s as though everyone, and I mean everyone — from indie film pioneers to Hollywood’s household names — is raising funds online for a new film or video project. A mere three years ago, crowdfunding was in its infancy and just learning how to walk. Now, it’s on its feet, running and moving faster month after month affording artists, entrepreneurs and conscientious individuals and institutions the ability to more easily fund the things that matter most to them. More easily, but by no means easy, of course. Because…

Historic Theatre seeks online crowdfunding for a digital upgrade

Historic Theatre seeks online crowdfunding for a digital upgrade

It’s just a novelty. It’s never going to last. Or will it? That question has dogged every movie-technology upgrade since silents became talkies and black-and-white went Technicolor. And that’s the question dogging a timeless movie-going couple in a frankly hilarious Kickstarter video — a so-called “Kigstarter” video — posted by downtown Vancouver’s historic Kiggins movie theater. The Kiggins is looking for an $85,000 kick from Kickstarter — which means you — by Monday if it is to join the 21st century and upgrade its movie-showing equipment from celluloid film to digital. It’s not an elective decision, according to Kiggins owner Dan Wyatt. Wyatt said the…

Michael Eisner on Kickstarter: ‘I Think It’s Only Positive’

Michael Eisner on Kickstarter: ‘I Think It’s Only Positive’

Kickstarter may be popular among producers of the maker variety. But what about producers of a more traditional strain — say, Hollywood producers? And record companies? And movie studios? During a discussion with Kickstarter co-founder Perry Chen at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Walter Isaacson asked Michael Eisner, who was watching the discussion from the audience, what he thinks of the crowdfunding service. The former Walt Disney Company CEO, Isaacson pointed out, made a living helping to build up artistic projects in the same way Kickstarter does — but he did so through a studio system whose model is pretty much the opposite of crowdfunding. So what…
