Award winning film maker Anthony Baxter will discuss the essential elements required for running a successful crowdfunding campaign. As an increasingly popular method for financing your projects, crowd funding has truly revolutionised independent film funding over the years.
Anthony will provide insights into the full process of crowdfunding by discussing the methods he used for his award winning documentary ‘You’ve Been Trumped’. This provocative film used separate crowdfunding campaigns for both making the film and for distributing at international film festivals. This is a great example of a successful campaign and will offer excellent hints and tips for filmmakers seeking more information in this area.
