So, I’m Going To Make A Movie… UPDATE #3

We Have Our Captain!

I am pleased and honored to announce that we have found/been blessedly bestowed with a Director for our film LEAVE.

With a captain now at our film’s helm (yes, I do love my sailing metaphors), we will soon be launching our Indiegogo funding campaign, where we will happily and proudly announce all Cast & Crew.

Even once the Indiegogo campaign launches, we will continue to run our website funding campaign here for those Indie Authors and other Indie Creator-types who would rather receive one of the Reward Packages as a donation incentive to promote their books or other projects versus the incentives that will be offered with the Indiegogo campaign.

To be notified when the Indiegogo campaign goes live, please sign up here.

To learn more about the website funding campaign and how you can promote your books or other projects, please visit here.

To go ahead and just donate now, please do so here.

After you donate via the website campaign, you should be automatically directed to a page where you can select your Reward Package. If you are not directed to the page, please let me know and I will personally assist you.

Right on?

Write on!


PLEASE SUPPORT ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORT OUR FILM.

So, I’m Going To Make A Movie… UPDATE #2

Well, as grand, collaborative endeavors often do… we’ve run into a few delays in our effort to launch our Indigogo campaign to raise funds for our short film LEAVE.

Fortunately for us the delays are good problems to have because it may allow us to have an even stronger team and announcement once we do go live.

But I got to thinking (I know, I know…), that even though the Indigogo campaign may be delayed, why can’t I begin seeking funding support now right here at my website?

In fact, here I can offer unique donation incentives that I won’t be able to offer at Indigogo.

Seeing how a great majority of you all out there are Indie Authors and Indie Creators of other sorts, why cannot I offer you an opportunity to promote your imaginative wares here for a few dollars in donation to help me pre-fund my film?

And by “pre-funding” I mean funds that I can use to hire someone to make killer graphics (as opposed to my black-and-white snoozers) and a killer trailer; and funds I can use to promote and market the Indigogo campaign as it is running.

Twitter and Facebook ads are expensive. And while I have a large Facebook following at my Author Page, Facebook throttles every post I make there so hardly anyone sees it unless I pay to promote the post.

So what do you think? Would you be willing to support my film if I were willing to promote your work here?

For example, the campaign incentives would look something like this:

1. $5 = I will list your name with a link back to your site on a special Donors page.

2. $10 = #1 plus I reblog a post of your choosing

3. $25 = #1 plus you publish a Guest Post about your book or whatever you wish to write about

4. $50 = #1, 2, 3, plus I advertise your book, etc. on the sidebar for a week

5. $75 = 1, 2, 3, plus I advertise your book, etc. on the site scrolling header for a week

6. $100 = 1, 2, 3, plus I advertise your book, etc. on the header and sidebar for a week

7. $500 = 1, 2, 3, and 6 for the duration of the campaign, plus you will receive Executive Producer credits on the film

Or, if you have ideas for additional incentives, I’d love to hear them.

During the campaign, I would take down all the advertisements I now run to supplement my disability payment (yes, I just took a blatant tug at your tender heart string) to create a better environment.

All of the sidebar promotion would be at the top above all of my work.

And I would have a link directly to Paypal where you could donate all easy-peazy like.

Of course all donations would NOT be tax deductible. However, unless you intend to donate more than the present $14,000 gift exemption for the 2016 tax season, your donation will not be taxed as a gift. Because I am not a lawyer, for more information, please see the IRS GIFT TAX FAQ.

This all is just a rough of what the campaign would look like… but what do you think?

Would you help me help you by donating to support my film?

Of course, submissions to the Relating to Humans feature will remain open throughout the campaign so all can continue to freely share and promote their creative expressions and ideas regardless one’s level of support.

So, about this Snapchat #socialmedia thing…

I wonder…

Are any Indie Authors using it to promote their work?

And if they are, are they finding it worthy of the time and brain cells it took them to learn yet another social media thing for which to suck them away from their writing (not that I need it for an excuse to do that… I have many, many others from which to draw from)?

I am filled with such wonderment for this Snapchat thing from seeing more and more written about its value in marketing to the social media-consumed Millennials.
