The office of Handrawn Pictures (HDP) is buzzing with the kickoff of our crowdfunding campaign! We are busy connecting with people and organizations who agree with HDP that Citizens* has a message that must be told.
Crowdfunding is a collaborative funding process for people who share a common goal. It creates a community. For independent filmmaking, crowdfunding is the new standard for raising funds to get a film out to the public. Filmmakers regularly raise from $10,000 to well over $1,000,000 through contributions based upon a return for perks or rewards.
Along with a tax deduction (see this article), we are excited to offer our supporters “get involved” perks such as meeting us for coffee, lunch or dinner to discuss filmmaking or whatever the conversations flows. Or, meet with Jake to take on an active role in the additional filming, editing or animation.
And for those of you who like contests we are offering you a chance to win an Associate Producer’s credit along with other prizes just by sharing the campaign.
