My writing partner and I created two seasons of a web series without any formal film training. That’s scary. But one of the scariest things we had to do was create and run our crowdfunding campaign.
In this series we’re going to discuss the finer points of some things you should try to avoid.

What kind of lighting package do we need?
Today is a tough day in the Seed&Spark office, as we bid farewell to our incredibly talented Director of Content Amanda Trokan, who was recognized and snapped up for one of the most prestigious programming jobs in the world: Film Programming & Acquisitions at HBO.

Especially today.
