In the age of crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc.), projects can either live or die based on the heat generated by an audience. I’ve backed a few projects in my day, most notably the American Psycho
musical, produced by Jesse Singer and Act4. For my $100 “donation” I received an autographed poster, t-shirt, flash drive and more. An exciting and nerve-wracking experience, I’ve been paying attention to crowdfunding more and more as time has gone on.The Louise Log
, created by Anne Flournoy
, is a tremendous success story in that the webseries, now commencing its third season, netted around $22,000 in funding to proceed.
