A quick update on my current Kickstarter campaign. As of right now I’ve raised a little over $5000, which is around 43% of my total goal of $12K. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. It really is very much appreciated. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
I created a video / podcast episode with an update. In it I talk through my own feelings and thoughts after running the Kickstarter campaign for 10 days. I also announce the winners of the email/fax blast drawing. And I talk about the new rewards and bonuses that I’m offering.
Time is running out, so if you haven’t had a chance to check out the campaign yet, please check it out now. You can find it here:
I want to announce the email / fax blast winners from last week’s group of contributors. In the video I actually recorded myself choosing the winners. I ended up giving away an extra blast, so 5 total. The winners are: David Santo, Janet Fisher, SuperMercado, and Julianne Bianchi (twice). Congratulations to all of you. I’ll be getting in touch with you soon to arrange the blast.
I’m also offering some great new rewards…
If you contribute between now and Sunday night at midnight (January 31st) you will get access to two online classes that I taught and recorded.
Online Class #1: Choosing A Marketable Concept (How to avoid the single biggest mistake made by new screenwriters)
Online Class #2: Before You Begin To Write Your Screenplay
Contributions start at just $5. And again, any contribution, no matter how small, will get you access to these two classes! But you must contribute by midnight on Sunday (January 31st).
I’ve also added a new reward to the Kickstarter campaign. I’ve bundled together a 1 year subscription to SYS Select ($199 value) with three producer email and fax blasts ($159 each x 3 = $477) so a total of $677 worth of screenwriting services. And I’m offering them through Kickstarter for only $500, so you’re saving $177. I rarely discount my products. And I’m only offering 10 of these, so once they’re gone, they’re gone. So if you’re interested in this package, please take advantage of it quickly.
If you’ve been thinking about joining SYS Select and/or using my email and fax blast service, this is great opportunity to get them at a deeply discounted price and contribute to my Kickstarter campaign, too. Win-win!
To claim this reward, just look for the reward called “The Screenwriter Marketing Package” on the Kickstarter page.
Also, a quick update. One of the rewards through Kickstarter is a “Story Consultant” credit on the film. If you claim this reward your name will be listed in the film’s credits and on IMDb as a “Story Consultant.” Here’s how this reward works:
#1. You contribute at the $300 level.
#2. You read the screenplay and give me notes on it.
#3. Your name will appear in the film’s credits and on the IMDb page.
So if you’re looking for a writing credit, it’s great way to get listed on IMDb. There are only 3 of these rewards left and I’m not going to be offering anymore. So if you’re interested in this, please do contribute quickly.
Once again, a big thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
