Back when crowdfunding for independent film was still a relatively new concept, I launched a campaign on Indiegogo for my short film Cerise.
I hoped to raise $5,000 from the crowd. This was to add to the $10,000 I’d already saved up.
I didn’t know it then, but I had not only run a successful campaign, raising a total of $6,300 from 117 funders, but I had also created an immersive campaign experience for not only my funders, but my entire network on Twitter, Facebook and email.
