Action Film Pre-Production

I assembled a small team from my high school to begin the pre-production phase of the action film that I wrote in middle school. We ultimately disbanded after realizing we would not be able to raise the funds.

Make the Movie Happen

I started a crowdfunding website to raise funds for my action film project. I was the inventor of the perk-based tiered model of crowdfunding rewards. After trying straight donations for a while and still producing no results, I realized I needed to actually offer something more tangible to the donor, other than a simple “Thank You” in the credits. You now see these models used on sites like IndieGoGo and KickStarter. Ultimately, my donation-based fund raising methods failed.
