Click on above image to read Peter Broderick’s newsletter article describing how recent changes in the crowdfunding market is helping fund innovative films like “I am I”. Sights like IndieGoGo.com & Kickstarter.com are now raising sums in excess of $100,000 for intrepid indie filmmakers!
Today I attended black Swan producer Jennifer Roth’s Master Class hosted by Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum. She pointed out the advantages that come from a limited budget, forcing the filmmaker to focus on telling a good story. As a line producer she offers her directors “three” things, such as a great script, great locations and some A list talent. An alternative might be amazing sets and costumes, amazing music and a cast of unknowns.
It’s up to the director to take these three things and make a great story. The alternative is a bloated projects & a story that dies. This continues Ted Hope’s recent blog about the future of Indie Film being in the million dollar and less motion picture. As someone who shoots with a DSLR and edits on a Mac I can tell you that 1 million put’s you in the range of a great film with almost guaranteed return for investors.
