Crowdfunding is still an option for us. We just have to be very careful to use this tool well. And use it better than how other people use it. It will require a lot of upfront effort, but if we aim to build an international audience the potential of it could be huge.
Here are some conclusions for using crowdfunding to fund films:
*A film costs a lot of money to produce and market and using crowdfunding to fund the whole thing is somewhat unrealistic and has only been done successfully on a couple of occasions.
*Using crowdfunding as an investment model, rather than a donation model would perhaps be more viable and sustainable, in the way The Age of Stupid has done it.
*Overseeing your own funding (and distribution) requires a lot more personal effort and creates a lot more paperwork.
