I just did a quick podcast / video update on how things were going with my Kickstarter campaign.
Podcast: Play in new window
As I approach the final week I still have a lot of work to do. If you’ve thought about contributing but haven’t quite gotten to it yet, please don’t delay any longer. I’m on the home stretch and need all the support I can get.
You can find the Kickstarter campaign here:
I am also offering a ton of new rewards (see below).
Also, if you have any cool ideas for rewards that you would like me to offer, please let me know. Any reasonable request will be accepted! Please be as specific as possible and tell me exactly what you would like and exactly how much money you would be willing to contribute for that reward. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: All the rewards mentioned below include a digital download of The Pinch when it’s finished and any contribution that is $100 or more will include the digital download and the DVD of The Pinch.
Tee Shirt – Do you like The Pinch image? I’m going to be putting it onto a high quality tee shirt.
Micro Budgeting Film Making Online Class – Once I’m done with The Pinch I’m going to be running an online course that clearly lays out exactly what I did to make this movie happen. How I raised money for the film, things I learned from running a Kickstarter campaign, and exactly how I produced this micro budget film. I will be revealing everything there is to reveal about this project. How I spent the money and how much I earned back from this film.
Plug Your Kickstarter Campaign On The SYS Podcast – Are you thinking about running your own Kickstarter campaign? Would you like to talk about it on an upcoming episode of the SYS Podcast? I’m offering this as a reward if you contribute $100 to my campaign. This is a great way to reach an audience of people who are very supportive of crowdfunding campaigns. And it doesn’t just have to be Kickstarter. It can be any crowd funding campaign you’re trying to promote.
5 Page Challenge – Would you like me to read 5 pages of your screenplay and critique them on an upcoming episode of the podcast? If you contribute $100 I’ll do exactly that. Or if you just want me to critique your pages privately, that works too. I think this reward will be a lot of fun for everyone involved, me, the writer, and the folks who listen to the podcast.
