In response to people asking me how I created my Kickstarter campaign, I offer you this Google Doc called “Raising Funds on Kickstarter”:

Quick background:
Last year, I was skeptical that anyone would be able to raise more than $10,000 on a crowdfunding site. My friend Ned Gubbins spoke with the folks at Touscoprod (a European version of Kickstarter and IndieGoGo) as well as a European representative of Facebook. The document includes his methodology and my edits, as well as advice from various people. Best of luck with your campaign!

Ned produced this film:
(No) Laughing Matter – the Film (Blagues à part)
Ned built the film’s FB fans to over 1000 during the course of the campaign
Raised: 25,370€
419 coproducers
Btw, Ned still needs help with distribution contacts here in the U.S.

Also I’m a member of a film collective called The FilmShop. We’ve raised about $140,000 for our individual projects on both KS and IndieGoGo thus far. See examples here:

Please share your success stories with me!
