Why I Choose Seed & Spark.com to Crowdfund THIS IS MEG
With all the choices out there to crowdfund your film, it can get kinda crazy! Kickstarter and Indiegogo are the two Goliath’s in the arena with Seed&Spark.com playing David. If you know the story the two Goliaths don’t fear David but this David has a hella of a punch.
I choose Seed and Spark to crowdfund my new feature film THIS IS MEG, because of a few reasons:
- They have a 75% Success Rate (2 times any other platform)
- The average raise is $17K (2.5 times any other platform)
- There average fee is only 3% (40% Less than anyone else)
- They guarentee distribution if you hit a certain benchmark
How is this possible you ask, well it’s because they focus on one thing…FILMMAKERS. They don’t crowdfund for the next transforming coffeemaking pen. Seed and Spark is all about indie filmmakers and creating independence for film artists. Take a listen to this episode and find out how we are putting our crowdfunding campaign together for THIS IS MEG using this awesome platform.
Here’s the trailer to the film THIS IS MEG we crowdfunded:

ABOUT THE CLASS:
Crowdfunding to Build Independence is an easy-to-watch online course designed to help you leverage the tools for great crowdfunding to build a direct relationship with your audience that will last your entire career.
The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding has become a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. But most filmmakers miss the opportunity to leverage the power of crowdfunding for one film into an audience-building opportunity that can last an entire career – and provide the groundwork for effective distribution. In order to leverage this opportunity, it requires a new way of coming to work, and that’s what you’ll learn here.
We’ve taught this class at over 100 film festivals, schools and organizations around the country, and gathered learning from the thousands of filmmakers we’ve met and hundreds of campaigns we’ve supported. Fun Fact: Filmmakers who have attended these classes have a Seed&Spark crowdfunding campaign success rate of 100%!
This introductory video will lay the foundation to engage your audience at every stage of each project, leverage that audience for distribution, and carry them over to the next project.
