Through the span of 8 years, a variety of creative crowdfunding campaigns, email blasts, and a ton of tenacity, we raised over $316,000 from 800 strangers all over the world. Not only did we raise the money, but equally important, we built a group of solid followers.
This ”slow drip” crowdfunding method laid the groundwork for the grassroots distribution of the film. I grew a “tribe” of people who were hungry to share this film with their community, friends and family.
But many of these people lacked the knowledge and/or resources to produce a screening event. I suspected it could be a potential nightmare if I left them to do this on their own. This is where Cinema on Demand was a perfect match.
