“Broken Glass” is the next short film from award-winning filmmaker Chaz Harris and tackles the issues of bullying and domestic violence within the context of a modern-day fantasy story. They independently raised 70% of the funding, and used PledgeMe to raise the final $2,000 to ensure the film could be greenlit. They raised more than their goal, and will start filming soon!
What did you like about pledgeme? Pledgeme is New Zealand based!
How did you find the experience? It was straight forward and easy process. Friendly staff who talk to you one to one and you feel like your project is being looked after, rather than a computer system.
Any tips for newbies? Do personal emails to people you know who will spread the word or invest themselves.
Anything you’d change about PledgeMe? For certain projects where the limit needs to be higher but any money raised could be used towards achieving the goal and so then not having to reach the target would be good. I think this has been done on Fracking project?
I say crowdfunding, you say: Phew! Yes please! Fund me!
