Filmmakers: USE SEED&SPARK TO RAISE FUNDS - OR NOT?

You've probably heard of Seed&Spark by now.

If not, then I've got a quick, easy primer that you can go through right now to get a mental jumpstart on your next film / video crowdfunding project. 

They are built FOR filmmakers and their cut is reasonable (though by no means better than Tilt).

Very quickly: 

  • 80% or more is what you need to raise to be "greenlit" - KS wants all or nothing, Indiegogo doesn't care what you raise
  • Low fees, with the option for supporters to bear part of the fees
  • You can itemize what you would like funds for (like a new camera body or lens)
  • People don't have to contribute $$$; followers are just as important to every project

Light fare there. Now for the main course. Buckle up. This will blow your hair back.
