• Seed&Spark Crew

We are very proud to report that in our first 60 days, half of our Founding Filmmakers successfully got the Green Light for their projects. We want to make sure you have all the information you need if you're researching crowdfunding platforms, learning about crowdfunding behavior, or trying to decide which platform you would like to use. We're including some stats below, but if there is other information you would like, let us know!

Seven films raised $146,429.90 in cash, goods and services. It breaks down like this:

Cash: $97,984.90

Loans of goods and services: $48,445.00

Supporters: 737

37% of those supporters chose to cover our 5% fee on behalf of the filmmakers.

Net of all fees (our 5% fee and credit card fees), filmmakers kept an average of 94% of their crowd-funding revenue.

We've seen contributions from all 50 United States, and 8 countries.

Combined, the seven Green Light films have 983 followers and counting.

There are currently NINE job openings for Cast&Crew for these films.

Three of the successful films threw parties (like, actually face-to-face ones) in support of their fundraising campaigns, with entry dependent on a certain level of contribution.
