Why Is Crowdfunding Just Now Taking Off? [Video]

Last night, the filmmakers posted part of the interview on their YouTube channel, as part of the ongoing ‘Crowdfunding Stories’ series. Some of the other interviewees include Zach Braff, Amanda Palmer, and Brad Wyman, chief creative officer at FundAnything, the Donald Trump-backed crowdfunding platform.

Esposti and Kartaszewicz-Grell discuss the size of the crowdfunding industry, why backers don’t mind waiting for months for a product at an age of instant gratification, and why crowdfunding is just now taking off. Check out the interview below!
