Come hear, John Trigonis of Indiegogo, Elisabeth Holm of Kickstarter, and Nicolas Gonda of Tugg give their thoughts on the potential of the crowd.
"The Art of the Hustle/Hustling for Art: Kickstarter + Indie Filmmaking" by Elisabeth Holm
From 2010-2013 over 90 Kickstarter-funded films have played SXSW, raising funds and engaging communities throughout their creative process. From GIMME THE LOOT and 12 O'CLOCK BOYS to "Slomo" and GIRL WALK // ALL DAY, Kickstarter-funded films of all stripes are the toast of Austin and beyond, and they're made by some of the 12,000+ successfully-funded filmmakers who've seen over $188M pledged to their films. These creators are true hustlers — growing communities, raising the profile of their projects, gaining new resources, contacts, and insights into their audiences, all while funding and making their art. To date 50,000+ Kickstarter creators have connected with over 5M backers pledging not only for rewards but to be part of projects they love. Can't knock the hustle. Time to get yours on.
"Crowdfund a Simple Idea to the Silver Screen" by John Trigonis
Take a look at crowdfunding with John T. Trigonis, Indiegogo’s Campaign Specialist for Film & Video, and Author of 'Crowdfunding for Filmmakers: The Way to a Successful Film Campaign,' and learn how it is a very smart option for up-and-coming filmmakers and not just A-list movie stars. Trigonis will discuss how he helps hundreds of industry professionals use Indiegogo to open doors and create the movies they want to make with less hassles afforded them by the more traditional modes of film financing. With new campaigns launched on the platform daily, Trigonis will use the latest, hottest film and video campaigns on the platform as examples on how future filmmakers can successfully crowdfund their upcoming projects.
"Why We Should Crowd Source" by Nicolas Gonda
Crowdsourcing is the most powerful new tool for building communities and engaging fans. As co-founder of the audience-driven theatrical distribution platform, Tugg, Nicolas Gonda will explore how crowdsourcing is democratizing the entertainment business, by empowering artists, influencers, and audiences to collaborate and achieve together what would otherwise have been impossible. By looking at examples of crowdsourcing today – from funding consumer products like Pebble to bringing together a city for Batkid – we’ll assess the future of crowdsourcing and its increasing presence in our lives.
