Crowdfunding PR Press Release
Promising Filmmakers Pitch Online to Raise Funds Independently
Los Angeles, CA -- Independent filmmakers and actors, Amanda Markowitz and Bradley Fowler, are turning to the Internet to raise funds for their latest feature film project, Love Meet Hope, an inspirational project meant to instill hope within each and every viewer. Funding is a major obstacle to getting any film off the ground. Filmmakers have had to become more innovative in their fundraising tactics, and the independent filmmaking community has embraced sites like Indiegogo.com.
In line with Indiegogo.com guidelines, artists set a fundraising goal and have a set number of days to raise all the funds. Love Meet Hope has a 60-day fundraising window, from start to finish. If the
allotted budget ($18,000 US) isn't completely raised before the deadline, the film will not be fully funded and they will lose a larger percentage of the funds that they were able to raise.
When asked why they find Indiegogo appealing, Markowitz and Fowler noted, "we feel it is an invaluable resource because it allows us to reach out to our peers quickly. It is beautiful in that it allows artists to create and encourages people to support one another.”
A Three Tales Productions, the film Love Meet Hope examines what it really means to choose hope amidst tragedy and unexpected circumstances. A feature-length film, Love Meet Hope contains elements of romance, action, drama and comedy. Thematically organized around life lessons that reflect a wide range of human emotion and experience, the film seeks to illustrate that once you choose hope, anything is possible.
If the film is successfully funded, Markowitz and Fowler expect to deliver the final cut early next year.
