Kickstart Your Year by Kicking Ass on Kickstarter!

Home  /  Workshops  /  Online  /  Current Page

Marc Zicree had a project he wanted to launch on Kickstarter and set out to raise $75,000 — but instead, he raised over $221,000!   Now he and his partner Elaine Zicree have their own studio and are writing, directing and producing their own slate of films!

They’re happy to share the secret… that you no longer need the studios and networks to greenlight your dreams – you can go directly to your audience and greenlight yourself!

In this fun and informative class, you’ll learn everything you need to launch your own crowdfunding campaign – and succeed wildly!  There are many important tools needed to do a crowdfunded campaign. We’ll review:

  • Designing a kick-ass Kickstarter Page!
  • Shooting an awesome pitch video!
  • What to offer as rewards – and what not to!
  • Attaching famous actors – with NO upfront money!
  • How to get perfect strangers to send you thousands of dollars!
  • Getting worldwide publicity for free!
  • Building momentum, sealing the deal – and taking it to the bank!

Who should attend: Writers, Directors, Producers, Actors, and anyone interested in learning about crowdfunding.

Requirements: Something to take notes.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll know how to:

  1. Start Your Own Kickstarter Campaign
  2. Publicize Your Project
  3. Use Kickstarter to get talent on your project.
