If you hear someone mention Kickstarter or perhaps Indiegogo, do you wonder if they are talking about a motorcycle part, or some hip new indie band?
If you do, then Raindance Canada Executive Director Jaimy Warner’s ProFusion main stage discussion “Crowdfunding & Social Media Demystified” might be for you…
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…
For most of us, these are are simply something we log on to everyday to get our news, keep in touch with friends & family or follow our favourite celebs.
But what if they could be used for something more powerful?
The power of the crowd…
Did you know that Director Zach Braff recently crowdfunded over $3,000,000 for his 2013 movie, Wish I Was Here and the now in production movie Super Troopers 2 has raised over $4,000,000 with their campaign?
Right now, you might be thinking to yourself, sure, but those are big “Hollywood” productions, it would never work for me, but the fact is, it could.
The beauty of crowdfunding and social media campaigns is that they can be successful for anyone, but the key to running a success campaign is understanding how it works.
Join Jaimy Warner at ProFusion as she shares her extensive knowledge (watch out for her upcoming book “The Science of Crowdfunding for Film“) on crowdfunding and social media and you’ll soon see that it’s not as scary as you think.
