Join me to dis­cuss the state of crowd­fund­ing your movie projects at the 2012 Fly­way Film Fes­ti­val this week­end, on Sat­ur­day, Octo­ber 20th. I’ll be joined by Slam­dance co-founder Paul Rach­man and con­sult­ing film­mak­er Lucas McNel­ly.

Armed with the data from our own mul­ti­ple suc­cess­ful cam­paigns, as well as the data from hun­dreds of oth­ers, we’ll break down how to plan, launch, run and wrap-up your next cre­ative fundrais­er. Find out what days have the most impact, what reward lev­els are most pro­duc­tive, what real­ly gets things mov­ing and what to avoid at all costs. You’ll also learn about how things change the 2nd or 3rd time around, how big to go, and how the new guide­lines may affect your art.

The dis­cus­sion takes place Sat­ur­day, Octo­ber 20th at the Break­wa­ter Bar (1st and Main) in Pepin, WI at 1:00pm and is a free event. This will be an invalu­able ses­sion full of insights and use­ful data. First come, first serve.

Stick around after­wards for some great films!
