Last month, Indiegogo’s Campaign Specialist and writer of Crowdfunding for Filmmakers: The Way to a Successful Film Campaign, John T. Trigonis, offered up his funding advice during a TEDx event in Jersey City.
The discussion’s description reads:
“Ever since the Statue of Liberty, crowdfunding has been bringing people together in unprecedented ways. Most recently, this phenomenon of online fundraising has reignited a sense of possibility and an empowering belief that each one of us has the potential to do remarkable things; whether it means bringing to life a hip new restaurant or producing the next Sundance darling, that’s entirely up to us.
“John T. Trigonis, author of Crowdfunding for Filmmakers: The Way to a Successful Film Campaign, will demonstrate how we the people are contributing to the creation of the bravest new world yet, and he will also impart a few insider tips and tactics to enable you to bring to light that one thing you’re passionate about making a reality.
“Writer, independent filmmaker, and renowned crowdfunding expert John T. Trigonis has mentored thousands of filmmakers, storytellers, and other creators worldwide to help them craft compelling crowdfunding campaigns that not only reach, but oftentimes exceed their online fundraising goals.
“Trigonis also literally wrote the book on Crowdfunding for Filmmakers after running his own Indiegogo campaign for his eighth short film Cerise. The advice offered in Crowdfunding for Filmmakers has not only proven useful to creatives, but also to those raising funds for everything from setting up a local restaurant to gaining awareness for personal or social causes.
“After spending a few years as a private crowdfunding consultant for a number of creative projects on various platforms, Trigons was brought on board Indiegogo’s film team as its head specialist and now works behind-the-scenes, all while continuing to nurture his own creative multimedia projects.”
