Crowd funding – what on earth is it?

Being busy is great!

But recent events are stretching my funds to the max.

So, I’ve been looking into Crowd funding.

Basically you get lots of people to give you small amounts of money for rewards. And hope to get enough people interested to fund your project!

It’s not without it’s trauma’s but once you figure it out it’s relatively painless.

Essentially you put a project proposal together, work out how much you need to make it happen. Create a video and your project. Set some rewards for donations and launch it!

And there’s a lot of virtual hand holding throughout!

My first attempt was to investigate www.kickstarter.com. After struggling with the video editing, the project looked fine and was going well…

But setting up an Account I couldn’t submit an address outside the US.

So, I tried www.sponsume.com.

And no such drawbacks. It was actually much easier to use. So here it is. Still feels odd doing this, but why not? Big films get made this way all the time…

So why not a little old exhibition in Milton Keynes?

Dislike being on camera though.

Maybe that’s why I avoided a singing career?

What do you think?

On second thoughts DON’T ANSWER THAT!

Anyway this is the end result…

 

Now all I have to do is get lots and lots of people to share it and back me…

OK, now I’m nervous! I mean… now I’m excited!

Yes, that’s what I meant!

Please could you share or donate?
