Crowdfunding Your Creative Project

Sunday, August 6, 2017
8:00 am - 9:30 am
Cascade B
Evan Stuart recorded an original story that his seven-year-old daughter told her stuffed animals at bedtime, then crafted it into a children’s book and did the original artwork for the project. Through the crowdfunding site Kickstarter he and his daughter raised over 200% of the stated goal, and the book ” Ellia the Elephant” is being released this summer.  This course clarifies the Kickstarter process: For authors, filmmakers artists or just people looking for a deeper understanding of the entrepreneurial nature of Kickstarter as well as the social doors that it can open.
The course will provide an overview of writing a simple business plan for your project, assessing your existing network of friends, family and possible backers, plus courting possible bloggers to amplify the message, making a compelling two minute Kickstarter video, and finally, surviving the 30 or 60 day crowdfunding adventure.  This class will be a dynamic and interactive experience .
