Not sure if this is the right category but this was a super helpful article and it’s not even about filmmaking crowdfunding technically!! And I wanted to share
I was gonna share this in a bit- so good! So often people forget about the basic FRAMING of campaigns and how much that influences your success.
This is exactly what I needed to read as we gear up to launch our crowdfunding campaign for My Death Co. The fear of failure and “weirdness” (for lack of a better word) of asking friends/family for money are constantly in my head and powering through those negative thoughts is really tough at times. Keeping in mind to make sure the campaign isn’t framed by those thoughts is going to be big.
This is really important for me to keep in mind, I know there’s a good chance I would do the same thing and try to beat defeat to the punch. Learning to stay positive, and embrace imposing on others, I think are very important things to learn when being a self-starter.
