: Kickstarter.com for fundraising
is a web-based fundraising platform for creative projects. The site covers creative efforts in film and video, books, writing, journalism and theater, to name just some.
When your project is featured on the site, readers/viewers can donate money toward your stated goal. The interesting thing is - if you don’t raise at least 100% of your target, no donor is billed for their pledge. It’s all or nothing!
Kickstarter.com is in Beta right now, so the projects it can feature are limited. They do encourage you, if you’re truly passionate about your project, to sign up and submit your idea.
Check out their blog for info on projects successfully funded, as well as tips on how to generate more interest (and money) for your project. You just may find money to get your screenplay produced and screened.
