On March 20 at the WGA West in Los Angeles, I’ll be on a panel for new film financing models (eg, crowdfunding). Others on the panel include actor-director Mark Duplass, and Brad Wyman of crowdfunding site IndieGogo.
Here’s the description from the WGA calendar page: 7-9 p.m.– WGAW 2nd Floor. RSVP by 3/18: MemberServices/Organizing or (323) 782-4567. Writers and filmmakers are taking advantage of “crowdfunding” and other emerging entertainment finance models; will you be next? Panel discussion includes writer/director/actor Mark Duplass (Kickstarter projects), William Mapother (Slated), and Brad Wyman (IndieGoGo). Moderator: Josh Welsh (Film Independent Co-President). Open to WGA members in active status (no guests) and Film Independent Fellows. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
And here’s a great NYT piece on crowdfunding clean energy (and just about anything else, too).
