Veteran Documentary Filmmaker James Braves on the Brave New World of Crowdfunding
Documentary filmmaker James Braves' (Hoop Dreams) latest project, Generation Food, is about international efforts to solve the food crisis. To make it, Braves is turning to crowdfunding (via Indiegogo) for the first time. He writes, "I’ve never done this kind of fundraising before. But for some time I’ve been intrigued to see that people have had success with it and excited that filmmakers now have a way to raise some money for their films that bypasses traditional funding sources. It opens the opportunity to attract private individuals to support their work."
