If you have a film idea that isn’t just a crowd-pleaser but is also a catalyst for social change, look no further for funds. You don’t need a high budgeted production house to fund your film, and then have them dictate the way you make it. All you need is a unique concept. And for funds, read on to find out 5 reasons why you should crowdfund your film today –
The cost of pre-production, production, and post-production can be covered through the amount you raise via your crowdfunding campaign. Additionally, it is a very quick and easy method of raising funds with little or no investment. Innovation in technology allows everything to happen digitally, including the donations from supporters.
Gain a loyal supporter base
Film crowdfunding has much more to offer than just funding. The only reason that a person would contribute to you is when they think your film idea is worth it. Therefore, you can develop a large supporter base of people who have donated to your film, and are eager to watch it. This can further lead your supporters to share the enthusiasm with their close network of family and friends.
Maintain creative control
You might think that the easiest way to fund a film is by going to a production house. Yes, it is easy, and the budgets might be large, but it come with disadvantages. Very often, the filmmaker loses sight of how he/she envisioned the film concept because of excessive interference from production houses. The benefit of crowdfunding is that the filmmaker can not only keep his creative freedom but also have the rights to it.
Efficient marketing tool
Crowdfunding for films is about interaction. The success of your campaign relies heavily on how you market it, and to whom you market it. A filmmaker can raise money online and use his crowdfunding marketing activities to bring traction to his film, and vice-versa. If there are known actors onboard, then the task gets even easier.
Make a difference
Last, but most importantly, if your film has the ability to add value to society, or spread awareness about a certain cause, there is no reason why your crowdfunding ideas should fail. If you know that your film has elements that benefit others, then that’s your biggest reason to crowdfund it.
If your film is for the people, it will be funded by the people. So, get started with your campaign on Impact Guru and post your teaser now!
