Crowdfunding Your Art - Wins and Heartaches
Jun 29, 2020 Episode 5
Paul Carganilla and Kevin Gregg

“All I have to do is push a button and collect tens of thousands of dollars for my project!”

That is a concept that creatives dream of when it comes to crowdfunding on sites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo

The reality is it takes a plan and a lot of work. The good news is that you can get funding to support your creative project.

In this episode, Paul and Kevin talk about their wins and heartaches with crowdfunding.


Highlights from this episode include:

How Paul was able to raise $50,000 for a feature-length film (and the challenges that come after you get the money)

How Kevin had a fully funded project ready to go…. that he had to cancel!

What is necessary for a successful campaign.
