Crowdfunding has become THE biggest trend in financial support for small business. With a seemingly endless list of projects launched every day, it seems like a pot of gold without sacrificing equity. Since launching in 2009, over $1.22 billion has been pledged through Kickstarter by more than 6.6 million people, funding over 69,000 creative projects.
Through her own experiences, Christa shares the benefits and pitfalls of using crowdfunding.

The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding is becoming a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. However, many filmmakers miss the opportunity to turn their film funding campaigns into audience-building opportunities that can last an entire career — and provide the groundwork for theatrical distribution that you control. Seed&Spark and Tugg are combining forces to invest in the future of independent film by offering a comprehensive Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop. This two-hour session for film-related projects will provide the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, direct relationship with your audience.
