  1. Poll: ^I really think the model could work though. ...

    ^I really think the model could work though. Maybe more for short films if you set an exact screening date. I think it's just how we frame it though and although they are getting the exact same...
  2. Poll: I think the big issue is people don't want to...

    I think the big issue is people don't want to pre-order a ticket for a screening when they don't know when the date is. Everyone keeps asking when is the date. So I told the cast/crew that I...
  3. Poll: ^Well you're probably right about all that. I...

    ^Well you're probably right about all that. I can state it but everyone will interpret it how they want and ultimately the proof is in the numbers and people are not pre-ordering. People say they...

    I think that could work but in my opinion there isn't a lot that is more exciting than going to a glitzy premiere with photographers present, people dressed nice, actors and crew (director/others)...
  5. Poll: Great point Doc, that is probably failure on my...

    Great point Doc, that is probably failure on my part because I should have had more of that stuff done prior. I was hoping the draw would be in the pitch we had and people wanting to see it based on...

    Hmm...I guess that would be interesting. Set the date of the screening exactly on a certain/date and time. I'll have to think about that.
  7. Poll: What's naive about it? Would like to hear it so...

    What's naive about it? Would like to hear it so maybe I can fix it. I put in there any amount over $10k Gary. Obviously you can't get those guys and shoot the movie for $10k, I agree that would be...
  8. Poll: Hmm, that is a very good point and a possibility...

    Hmm, that is a very good point and a possibility maybe on something in the future..since this is already launched. So far one of the biggest deterence has been when is the date? People are...

    @Gary, I list the celebrities on the kickstarter. These being people who have read the script and are interested.

    @Zaza, I definitely agree and I think ultimately if people want to see your...

    Thanks Stefan! You're the best, appreciate it! :)

    Our lead actor had a shootout scene with Nick Cage in Drive Angry. Nick Cage won of course! :)
  11. Poll: @Gary, I think a bit of the draw comes from...

    @Gary, I think a bit of the draw comes from possibly having celebrity cameos at the screenings. If they were 100% a lock, you could probably pre-sell easily for $20 a ticket. I believe Kevin Smith...
  12. Poll: Thanks timbook2! There are a lot of independent...

    Thanks timbook2! There are a lot of independent features being done for around $10k lately with all the HD equipment that is out there. They tend to be dramas or comedies though. Action movies with...

    I have to say I'm a bit surprised by how there really are people on Kickstarter that are looking up projects. I've gotten a few people I've never met before pre-order a digital download of it. One...
  14. Poll: @hscully, thanks! We'll see how it goes....

    @hscully, thanks! We'll see how it goes. Kickstarter says that the majority of funding usually happens in the first week and the last week. So we may have a good idea after this first week what our...
  15. Poll: @Chris, I agree and I think ultimately it just...

    @Chris, I agree and I think ultimately it just depends on how many people want to see the movie you're making. If you or I can't even get enough people to want to see it, it might be best to go...
  16. Poll: When I screened Killing Holly in 2008, we did a...

    When I screened Killing Holly in 2008, we did a 200 seat theater and sold it out. I remember seeing you there! The place usually runs I believe around $1k but back then we knew the guy who ran the...
  17. Poll: I agree. And that was something else I was...

    I agree. And that was something else I was thinking when launching it. I notice most filmmakers, after their movie is completed, scramble around to do a few screenings. They do one with maybe 200...
  18. Poll: Can you pre-sell the theatrical premiere screening to finance an independent film?

    Alright, so we all know that independent features when they are completed, have a big movie premiere on the big screen where the entire cast and crew come out. The going rate is usually $10 a...
  19. SHORT: Yeah that's one thing about filmmakers, they see...

    Yeah that's one thing about filmmakers, they see it all. I know all the mistakes I made intimately and have planned ways to make the next thing much better. As a director though unfortunately you...
  20. Sorry, I probably should have made my intentions...

    Sorry, I probably should have made my intentions more clear, I'm not really interested in using it to book director work on commercials or anything like that. It's more towards attracting more...
  21. Thanks for the kind words. I think I'm going to...

    Thanks for the kind words. I think I'm going to look at cutting it shorter some. I do feel like it could use one additional sequence in there but I got some other footage from a feature but it just...
  22. Hmm, those are good points and I agree that...

    Hmm, those are good points and I agree that watching the full shorts would be a better way to tell. Well my idea behind creating a reel is that I think people in general don't like sitting through...
  23. Thanks Ted for the feedback. I was thinking of...

    Thanks Ted for the feedback. I was thinking of maybe cutting a 2nd one that is more dialogue oriented. I noticed some directors have reels like this with no dialogue and some have them with full...
  24. Thoughts?

    Thoughts?
