I need a press release written about my short film and it's online crowd funding campaign launching 8/1/16.
We are using our fiscal sponsor Southwest Alternate Media Project as the online platform http://swamp.org/the-cabin/. There you can find short bios of some of the cast/crew members. One note about the SWAMP platform is that all contributions are tax-deductible (this is an incentive for larger contributions). Also, since it is not a traditional crowdfunding platform (ie. one that offers perks), we will be updating the FB page @TheCabinShortFilm daily with exclusive content to make up for the fact that there are no "perks".
The exclusive content includes interviews with the director and executive producer, links to the director's previous films for free, a glimpse of pg one of the script, inspiration lookbook, music playlist, and more. Additionally, I am providing two special edition incentives: a special edition button (designed by Megan O'Sullivan) given to those who contribute in the first week and a sticker (designed by Rogue Hearts) to all contributors.
I also have an old proposal (I will attach) and a flyer I've made for the campaign (on FB pg). One point about this project is that we will only use Houston talent as a way to highlight our creativity. And, perhaps another angle could be emerging filmmakers collaborating with established professionals.
I will send this to local writers and genre blog writers to generate interest to get publicity. The end goal is to get contributors.
Please let me know if there are any other questions.
