This case study will present a candid discussion on alternative funding options, distribution options, marketing and audience development in the digital age. Guest speakers will individually discuss digital distribution, marketing, their successes and failures in seeking crowdfunding for their films and how they were able to connect directly with their audiences to do so. The panel will also discuss what types of projects benefit the most from crowdfunding and which types do not.
