Michelle is off to Chicago

    Michelle and her team worked on the film ‘Ellen is leaving‘ for over year. The film is about Ellen who is heading overseas, and decides to find her boyfriend a new girlfriend before she goes. This film is premiering at the Chicago International Film Festival, and with the help of 57 pledgers, Michelle raised $3414 to accompany her film and help promote it on the ground. This is what she had to say about using Pledgeme to help her raise the money:

    What did you like about pledgeme?
    It was easy to use and was for a New Zealand audience so there wasn’t too many credit card or currency conversion fees.

    How did you find the experience?
    It was a bit nerve racking to put myself out there like that, but great to see all the support the project got, so overall it was a positive experience.

    Any tips for newbies?
    I wonder if my video was a bit too long, so just keep videos short I reckon.
    Word on the street is that her premiere screening was sold out – and the feedback was awesome. Well done, Michelle!
