CROWDFUNDING TO BUILD INDEPENDENCE
CO-SPONSORED BY G-TECHNOLOGY®
We're traveling the country all year, shouting from the rooftops: The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience! Crowdfunding is becoming a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. However, many filmmakers miss the opportunity to turn their film funding campaigns into audience-building opportunities that can last an entire career — and provide the groundwork for distribution that the filmmaker controls. This class for film-related projects will provide the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, direct relationship with your audience.

Seed&Spark is a truly independent film community where filmmakers and audiences join forces to fund, promote and watch the best new independent films. Seed&Spark's film-specific crowdfunding tool — the "WishList" — allows supporters to buy or loan specific items to a production. Our fees are the lowest in the business, and our success rate is the highest (80%!). Every time an audience member supports the making of a film, they earn rewards points called "Sparks" which they can spend to watch films on the streaming platform. Supporting films gives audiences greater access to watch them. Filmmakers who stream their films on Seed&Spark keep 80% of the transactional revenue, and 100% of the rights. It’s your film! Build your audience and earn your money.
