Adventures in Crowdfunding - Film Alumni Updates

Written by Jim Kolmar | August 20, 2013

You've probably heard about some high profile Crowdfunding campaigns hitting headlines lately, and it seems like the revolutionary financing model is here to stay. Indie filmmakers, ever intrepid and resourceful, have known this for a long time. Without the likes of IndieGoGo, Kickstarter and USA Projects, for example, the SXSW Film program might look very different.

This occasional series of posts will look at SXSW Films as they continue their post-fest momentum, galvanized by the potential of crowdfunding.

Filmmaker Lindsay Dryden premiered Lost and Sound at SXSW 2012, a sublime documentary "about what happens to music if you lose the ability to hear it like you used to". She's looking to raise £9,700 to help fund additional soundtrack work, sound design and editing, and for master tapes, DVDs and downloads.

Watch Lindsay's campaign video above, and head to the campaign page for a full description, including available perks for contributors.
