We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for our current documentary film project. It feels strange asking for money, but then that’s how it works in the indie film world. I suppose I’m getting used to it. And Kickstarter is much better than going door to door selling overpriced caramel corn like when I was in the Boy Scouts.
Ultimately, it’s about building an audience as much as it is about raising a few bucks so that we can travel to places and shove cameras in peoples’ faces.
Since our subtitle is “An American Wine Movie,” and we are trying to tap into a national personality trait that makes folks in the New World chuck everything to follow a crazy dream, we decided to end our campaign on July 4th.
