About this Event

The link to the livestream will be emailed out to you 1 hour before the event starts!

Thinking about making a movie, show, or web series? Great! We wanna watch it.

But first, how are you going to fund it? And when you’re finished, who’s going to watch it?

We've got answers!

Most people think of crowdfunding as ‘friends and family’ fundraising for a project. But we're going to show you how crowdfunding can not only get your project off the ground — it can help you build a sustainable film career through a direct connection with your audience.

Join Seed&Spark’s Film Community Manager, Bri Castellini, for this can't-miss Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop to learn:

  • Why audience building is essential for a film career (and crowdfunding)
  • How to define, find, talk to and grow your audience
  • How to prepare for a successful crowdfunding campaign (including goal, incentives, and communication plan)
  • Why staged financing might be right for you

Make sure to RSVP to receive the livestream link, as well as our follow-up email with our workshop deck, plus additional educational resources!
