Film CrowdfundingOur favorite crowdfunding incentives of 2017
December 21, 2017
As we count down the last few days of 2017, our team looked back at the year in crowdfunding and came up with a list of some of our favorite incentives this year. If you’re looking for some inspiration or to see the creativity of our filmmaking community, you are in the right place.
And if you fall in love with one of these projects, go on and click through to follow their journey through email updates (and help them unlock amazing rewards for building their audience.)
The Vitale Brothers were already known for their murals and visual art, so a custom mural painted by them connected their artisty to the film world while giving the contributor something truly original and DOPE.
Get into the spirit of the film and look the part! In this campaign, $75 got you made over as an alien greaser by the film's makeup artist.
When you're raising funds to make a musical feature $25 for a personalized song is a great way to personalize an incentive and tie it to the world of your film, as well as showcase your singing chops to the audience. (The director did 200 of these over the 30 days of the campaign!)
Not only does this incentive grant you festival access and passes, but they made it into a whole package with personal golf cart service and a very popular (and cozy) hoodie. Physical incentives are not usually advised (are you sensing a trend yet?), but the festival was planning to have them available for their event anyway, so the merch already in the works.
