You’ve got the killer film project. Now

it’s time to finance it.  So the question really is: How do you raise

the money you need for your creative project by inspiring those around you to

reach into their pockets… with no begging at all necessary?

Learn how from people who have

already done it successfully!

Here’s how crowdfunding too

often looks (but shouldn’t!):

Step #1)  You

upload your video and info on one of the many crowdfunding website


Step #2)  You start plugging

like mad to your mom, dad, friends from college, high school, elementary

school, the guys from band camp, your neighbors upstairs, your sister’s

ex-fiance’s highschool girlfriend’s cousin, the Boy Scouts, the guy who owns

the liquor store on your block (because you know him well), and your dog

Sparkie. (You know he has a secret stash somewhere.)

Step #3)  You plug your

project… Stress… hold your breath… plug again… plug some more…

Stress… beg… beg… BEG!!!!  Crowdfunding endsäó_ and you still may

not have hit your goal.

Crowdfunding can be overwhelming,

confusing and stressful.  Very stressful.  It’s a mad dash in

a short span of time to grab the largest amount of money that has ever come to

you in a single sitting, all on the backs of those you know. Some can’t wait to

help.  Others can’t wait for you to stop hounding them.

But there is a better, more effective

way to do crowdsourcing – and actually hit your funding goals. This workshop

will show you how.

Who should attend:

Anyone who 1) wants to do a

crowdfunding campaign but hasn’t yet;  2) did one but didn’t reach the

goal; or 3) did one and was successful – but now has no idea how to replicate

that success.

By the end of this class you’ll

return you can actually expect and how to INCREASE it

momentum going through your ENTIRE campaign

and raise your money threshold to ATTRACT INVESTORS
