Salute Your Shorts & Epiphany Space are partnering with Seed & Spark to get you prepared for your next crowdfunding campaign! Crowdfunding expert, Gerry Maravilla, will be teaching on March 21st, 7:30pm-9:00pm.
About the workshop:
Seed and Spark is the world’s only crowdfunding and streaming destination, supporting inclusive films and film-related projects with funding, audience building, and distribution.
At the heart of our popular “Crowdfunding to Build Independence” workshop is our dedication to connecting creators with their audiences. Identifying, and then enthusiastically engaging, your supporters is essential to a career of successfully funding and distributing your films. That’s why in our class, we teach you how to find and engage your fans, run an effective crowdfunding campaign, and then distribute your film—all while preparing you to make your next film. Because after all, this class isn’t about crowdfunding: it’s about career building. Your film career starts here!
