- Amazon Wish List (props, wardrobe, nonperishable crafty, etc)
TL;DR: For a series just looking to fund concrete items rather than people/insurance, is it better to do a shopping wish list for folks to purchase specific props or to just go straight crowdfunding?
I’m in pre-production for season 2 of my web series and we’ve been toying with the idea of opening it up for people to help us out. It’s a show designed to be low key from most angles, but it also has a lot of escalating visual gags that require specific (if cheap) props and food to satiate our wonderful friends who make up the cast and crew.
We’re 99% sure we aren’t going to be able to pay the 5 people who work on the show (that’s cast/crew TOTAL) and everyone was aware of that when they signed on, so a full-fledged crowdfunding campaign isn’t something we were planning to do. At most, we’d be looking to raise like $500 to help with expenses, almost entirely for concrete items.
We put a poll on Facebook and Twitter and on Twitter everyone agreed “wish list” and on Facebook everyone agreed “crowdfunding” and I’m curious to hear your thoughts!
