presentation: crowdfunding and direct-to-audience strategies

In the age of social media, fundraising has taken on a new look. We know filmmaking can be  an expensive venture, and seeking the right investors can take one away from the creative side of production. With mounting expenses, seeking sufficient funds is definitely a hassle. Crowdfunding is an option to explore. 

A publicist, Marcin J. Sobczak has successfully raised impressive amounts of money using crowdfunding and will share his knowledge on how to get the best out of it. He will provide insight on the types of crowdfunding; the available platforms; how it can create an engaged community; the importance of communication; how it can speed up the development process; and how crowdfunding is tied to distribution.
