European crowdfunding website

Crowdfunding from a european perspective [english]

Although running an international campaign is important for creating awareness for the upcoming DVD release and further cinema releases, it is really not that easy keeping it alive. In the first days of our campaign both campaigns started quite well and soon we had reached a few hundred Euros/Dollars. Most backers were friends, but also people we knew from festivals showed their support.

At first, we translated each German blog post into English, but soon we totally focused on our German campaign, simply due to a lack of resources. We blogged, tweeted and posted on facebook, but most importantly we emailed and contacted members of the press and possible supporters. Now, with only a few days left to go, it seems that we will finish our German campaign successfully. Thumbs up!

But our IndieGoGo campaign still is way behind our expectations and we only reached 3% of our goal. We chose IndieGoGo because it’s well known in the indie film scene and you can keep all the money you raise. Which is crucial for our project, because every cent counts. But how do you find those random people who love films or would like to support independent filmmaking? I follow many filmmakers and crowdfunding projects on Twitter and do have a helpful network there. Some of them already contributed to or shared the project (btw, thanks John Paul and Marcella for spreading the word!).
