Crowdfunding to Build Independence
Limited Capacity seats available

Crowdfunding to Build Independence

Presented by Seed & Spark

Malco Commons, Friday, Noon-130 p.m.


Crowdfunding to Build Independence is workshop designed to help you leverage the tools for great crowdfunding to build a direct relationship with your audience that will last your entire career. The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding has become a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. But most filmmakers miss the opportunity to leverage the power of crowdfunding for one film into an audience-building opportunity that can last an entire career – and provide the groundwork for effective distribution. In order to leverage this opportunity, it requires a new way of coming to work, and that’s what you’ll learn here. We’ve taught this class at over 100 film festivals, schools and organizations around the country, and gathered learning from the thousands of filmmakers we’ve met and hundreds of campaigns we’ve supported. Fun Fact: Filmmakers who have attended these classes have a Seed&Spark crowdfunding campaign success rate of 100%!


Panelist: Julie Keck tends to media and communication strategy at Seed&Spark. She joined the team with 10 years of filmmaking experience and 5 of crowdfunding under her belt. Julie has run or consulted on crowdfunding projects that have raised over $300k total, and she’s spoken about social media for creatives, sustainable filmmaking, and audience engagement at SXSW, the University of Notre Dame, the Chicago International Film Festival, and more. Julie is co-author of Social Media Charm School, a social media guide for filmmakers, available for free on the Seed&Spark site. Play with her on Twitter as @KingIsAFink
