"In these financially precarious times there is endless rhetoric about crowdfunding being the knight on a white charger come to the save the creative industries. But is that realistic? For those that do, is the benefit more than just the money raised? Is it worth crowdfunding a portion of your traditionally financed project purely for the audience interaction? WARNING! This is not a "HOW TO CROWDFUND" seminar. You may not get richer. An eclectic panel will discuss the highs and the lows of their own successful projects and the benefits of crowdfunding for reasons other than money. Remember: An audience is for life not just Kickstarter."
