Last night I had a great crowd funding strategy session with a buddy. Kickstarter is the bigger, better known platform but Indie GoGo seems to have a lot of positives (fewer fees, no all-or-nothing model, more focused audience).
No matter which platform we go with, it's pretty amazing that we will have this opportunity to make the quality film we want thanks to friends, family, and complete strangers. It will be the difference between making a feature length doc - something I've always wanted to do - and having to settle for a short that tells a good story but doesn't look like a professional piece of work. I feel very strongly that in order to honor not just our story, but the subject itself, we need to make this project as high quality as possible.
That's the latest for now. Whichever way we go, our fundraiser will be up and running in a month or so. Stay tuned.
