Where are the best places to publicize your kickstarter Film project?
Last activity on  |  5 answers
Hey Chris,My Kickstarter campaign for my film just ended this morning actually.  Because I didn't have a large network to rely on, I reached out to several people who I knew would want to promote the project through their larger networks.  They really liked the story and wanted to support the making of the feature film.  My personal project became personal for them.  They really wanted it to be successful and therefore they promoted independently of me.  I didn't have to push them.  Also, since Kickstarter is the largest crowdfunding platform, most of your non-local traffic of people looking to contribute will come through here.  But also, because of the fact that there are so many projects you have to find a way to make your's stand out.  I would really recommend shooting a proof of concept or putting some of your previous work on the project page.  People would rather give money to someone who is presenting examples of what their project will be like rather than just talking about what their project will be like.  For example, for my film, we made a proof of concept trailer on no budget.  Our argument was, "This is what we made with no money.  Imagine what we could make with your contribution".  So in more direct response to your question, I would say that Kickstarter really does provide a lot of non-local contributors.  You just have to find a way to make your film stand out from the others!
