Just listen to this podcast and get to know more about ‘How To Create Short Film Crowdfunding Campaign In Online Via Shortfundly’ on #SoundCloud #np
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is all about creating a community around your short film project. A community that funds the creative project and also helps in spreading the word about your project. It’s all about asking for small amounts of money from many people instead of finding that one or two people to cut you a large cheque.
What are the advantages of crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is not just about money in hand, it’s about getting social validation. With many people funding your creative short film project, you can get access to direct distribution, creative independence since there is no investor, and a community that can support your creative ambitions for your filmmaking life!
What do people get in return for funding your project?
Shortfundly is a rewards-based crowdfunding platform, which means that funders do not get any monetary return (such as profits, equity, etc.) for their funding to your creative short film projects. They are asked for small amounts (such as ₹ 500, 5000, 10,000, etc.) in return for intangible rewards such as an early bird or special access to the project they funded (invite to film premiers), limited-edition merchandise, experience in the making of the project, etc.
Who are the people who fund these ideas?
Funding usually begins at the General public audience! By this we mean, a project creator’s personal contacts such as friends, family, colleagues, alumni, as well as Facebook fans and friends, twitter followers, etc. If the creative short film project becomes viral and gains popularity, and it connects with a lot of people emotionally, then it has the potential to even get funds from complete strangers on the internet! So, it really depends on the awesomeness of your creativity and efforts you put in your short film project.

Not only India, From Global Crowdfunding perspective, experts consider ‘All or Nothing’ as the best practice for all crowdfunding platforms. Under this policy, we become your partners.
