KICKSTARTER IS GO!

Our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finish our feature documentary is now LIVE and already taking pledges.

Click the link to become part of Team Paa Joe. Tweet & facebook it too!

Now that our Paa Joe & The Lion Kickstarter campaign is officially live (YAY!) we thought it was a good time to share some pics of the fabulous perks our backers can get.
Not to brag or anything, but we’ve got some seriously good merch for you to get your paws on.
First up, tees… the most practical of all items of clothing and probably the coolest too. We’ve got 3 awesome colours for you to choose from, in small, medium or large sizes. You can have:
white print on navy
white print on black
black print on sand
They all feature the exclusive Paa Joe & The Lion artwork by talented artist Amy Blackwell, you can’t get that anywhere else!
Next up… tote bags! Carry your stuff around in our fabulous bags. Take the Lion out shopping and avoid carrier bag overload while also looking rather marvellous. These are available with the Lion design printed with quality black ink on a natural coloured tote.
Visit our kickstarter page and pledge to the project to get hold of this exclusive, limited edition merchandise AND support this fascinating documentary.

Doc. Campus Masterschool | Sheffield | Day #1: Crowd-Funding

Yesterday, the very lovely and incredibly busy Charlie Phillips, Director of the Meet Market at Sheffield Doc/Fest, gave an inspirational talk on the beauty and importance of Crowd Funding.

Quote of the day:  “Yes, crowd-funding is very un-European but get over it and take pride in your work”. 

Some of the Do’s and Don’ts…

DO crowd fund for specific things, e.g. studio time, travel & accommodation costs.

DON’T try to crowd fund the entire film, it’ll never happen.

DO reach out to people / groups who can spread the word for you.

DON’T directly reach out to people / groups just to ask them for money.

DO keep you funders regularly updated with what’s going on with YOU and your PROJECT.

DON’T bombard them with emails saying “We still need x amount of money”.

Crowd-funding is important, highly respected and very well represented. 

17 films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival were Kickstarter films.

15% of films at this year’s SXSW were Kickstarter films.

If you’re going to do the crowd-funding thing then be prepared to PLAN.

PLAN your team

PLAN your daily out-put

PLAN who you are going to target and how

PLAN your costs and include them into the overall target.

If you want further tips on successful crowd-funding then take note from Jennifer Fox, director of My Reincarnation, a crowd-funding campaign that exceeded its target by over $100,000!!!
