Two Big Kickstarters Concluded Today – ‘Massive Chalice’ And ‘Kickstarted’ – Did You Kick In?

June 27th - via: flesheatingzipper.com
It’s not terribly often that two (or more) major Kickstarters conclude their campaigns within hours of each other, but that’s what happened today. Often times, we give our dollars and they just kinda go on without us until we get the e-mail that they’re done and our bank accounts were charged. While it’s too late to chip in now, let’s go over and see what you may have missed! Disclosure: I’m running my own Kickstarter campaign at the moment and I backed both of these projects. (Read More)

Get the skinny on crowdfunding before you invest

June 22nd - via: hlntv.com
Crowdfunding seems like a simple process: Make a post about your project, explain your idea and see how many people believe in it enough to put up a few dollars. It's exciting for a host of reasons, the most focal being that it allows products to see the light of day that might normally never be produced. But sometimes, what sounds too good to be true actually is. (Read More)

@KickstartedFilm research & uncover possible fraud with the nearly-funded Kobe Red: Beef Jerky project

June 13th - via: reddit.com
For the last couple days, my business partner and I (both producers and directors on a crowdfunding documentary called Kickstarted) have been looking into a project called Kobe Red Beef Jerky. Soon after, a number of concerned backers messaged us about Kobe's potential illegitimacy - so we investigated even further. Here are some of our findings...

(Editors Note: At the time of cancellation, the "Kobe Red" project had $120,309 in pledges, over 5000% of it's original $2,374 goal)

How We Uncovered Biggest Fraud in Kickstarter History

June 13th - via: kickstartedmovie.com
A couple of weeks ago, we reached out to the project creators behind Kobe Red, a company that was raising funds to make 100% Japanese beer fed Kobe beef jerky. Their product sounded delicious and we were intrigued to hear more about their crowdfunding story for our documentary film, Kickstarted. We thought these guys would make for a great interview. Plus, their project had massively exceeded it’s modest $2,374 goal, eventually reaching over $120,000 in pledges from 3,000 backers. However, after emailing back and forth with these guys, we started to get very suspicious about the legitimacy of Kobe Red. We decided to look more deeply into their operations and as a result helped to uncover what would have been the biggest fraud in Kickstarter’s history. (Read More)

Project of the Day: Kickstarting Kickstarter in Documentary "Kickstarted"

May 30th - via: indiewire.com
This is the first documentary to look at the crowdfunding revolution and the people powering it. The film will follow the inspiring, dramatic stories of a handful of crowdfunded project creators as they raise money and then, with all of their dreams and social capital on the line, have to deliver. Those journeys are set against the background of a bigger cultural and economic sea change — where the creative/entrepreneurial class can create their own projects independently. The film will also have interviews with Zach Braff, Amanda Palmer, John Vanderslice, Brian Fargo and dozens of other prominent crowdfunding personalities. (Read More)

Best Indie Film Trailers Of The Week: ‘Haute Cuisine,’ ‘Kickstarted,’ and More

May 29th - via: screencrave.com
We tend to hate on Hollywood studios because of the movie projects they choose to fund (Transformers 4, anyone?). So much of typical Hollywood product tends to be huge, expensive spectacles with little-to-no story, heavy special effects and poor acting. So, we at ScreenCrave have decided to help jump behind the indie film. Every week we’ve been bringing you an Indie Fundraiser Roundup, which features projects seen on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Now we’re adding on to it by including some of the Best Indie Film Trailers Of The Week. Check out this week’s picks below. (Read More)
