OK, so the target was to raise $1,000 in a 1 hour live show via my Livestream channel. A FIRST for an Indie Filmmaker. The result was that we didn’t quite make it. However, I think I proved that this new format of crowd fundraising CAN work as I raised over $600 during the show to go towards my next short film, Love Like Hers. Not bad I’m sure you’ll agree in sixty minutes.
Not only did I raise over $600 during the show, it proved to be a great source of inspiration for other indie filmmakers around the world. This is evident from all the amazing feedback I’ve been receiving since the live show.
The idea behind the show was to introduce new ‘perks’ and special offers to encourage viewers to contribute towards my next short film. I was utilising skill sets I have in other areas of expertise (i.e. graphic design) and offering creative and fun services in return for a contribution towards the film.
Below is a list of those extra special offers that I promoted during the show. These are different ‘perks’ to what you will find on my Indie GoGo page. Just to keep things fresh and interesting.
Please note that you can still contribute via any of the perks below. Payment is accepted through my Paypal account. Please send your payment to the following Paypal email address – email@example.com
HERE’S HOW YOU COULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE NEXT SHORT FILM OF AN INDIE FILMMAKER WITH THE OSCARS FIRMLY IN HIS SIGHTS:
1. TWITTER BACKGROUND DESIGN – $30 / £20
Having the right look is so very important if you are a serious indie filmmaker. Like I mentioned on the last live show; indie film is a business, and a business needs good, clear and effective branding. So, I’m offering to design you a professional Twitter background (including a small thumbnail graphic). If you’re interested please email me direct firstname.lastname@example.org
2. SKYPE CHAT (one hour) – $100 / £65
I get so many emails and DM’s via Twitter from other new indie filmmakers wanting to know more about my journey, more about how I’m raising funds for my next film, more about the resources for my filmmaking education and so on. So I thought that it would be a great idea to offer this Skype Chat package as a way of killing two birds with one stone. I get to raise a little extra cash for my next film AND answer and inspire other indie filmmakers. We will chat via Skype for 60 minutes about film and I GUARANTEE that you will be inspired after the call!! Please email me if you are interested in this perk as there is VERY limited spaces available email@example.com
3. GUEST PRODUCER – $500 / £320
This really is the BIG DADDY of packages available for my next short film. You’ll be involved during EVERY process of making the film.
During pre-production – you’ll receive regular updates via email and Skype on our progress. You will be one of the FIRST to receive the final shooting draft of the screenplay. You’ll also see budget sheets and other private production documents.
During principal photography – you’ll have FULL access to the set/location when we’re filming. Access to a private website that will feature stills and videos from the shoot.
During post-production – you’ll get regular updates on how we are progressing through the editing and grading process. You’ll be invited into the edit room to see us editing the video in person. There’s also a very special credit at the end of the film. Your name on it’s own as ‘Guest Producer’
And so much more. There is only room for one Guest Producer so get in touch NOW to avoid disappointment. Being a Guest Producer really does make you a part of the filmmaking team. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course there are more perks available through my Indie GoGo page http://www.indiegogo.com/lovelikehers including my personal video pitch recorded at a 95 year old picture house.
Finally, the next live show will be Friday 19th February at 6.30pm GMT UK time at http://www.livestream.com/dannylaceyfilm where I will be talking in more detail about my next short film Love Like Hers and my push to win an Oscar within the next three years.
