Lessons from SeriesFest: Crowdfunding is for Introverts, Too

August 11, 2016

• Julie Keck

"You really find the people who connect with (your film), and they're into the same things you are. And it's not scary."

As part of the launch of our New Voice Crowdfunding Rally, we went to SeriesFest to talk to the biggest and brights stars of this year's hottest original series.

In this second video, the team behind the series AT ALL COSTS (Ryan McDuffie, Daniel Clark, and Michael Tucker) talk about their experiences with crowdfunding and how it can actually enhance your storytelling. We also wrote about it on No Film School.


If you have a series up your sleeve and could use some help getting it off the ground, join our New Voice Crowdfunding Rally! Submissions are open NOW through September 1, 2016. Prizes include $30k in finishing funds from Mastercard, TV development from Band of Outsiders, a premiere at SeriesFest 2017, an additional 'Straight to Screen' prize from Fullscreen, a Filmmaker Gift Box from Seed&Spark worth over $8k, and more.
