Do any folks here have experience with these crowd-funding systems, and can I get your opinion about which (of any) of these I should consider? For nearly a decade, I have had a tiny business recording concerts. I bring in eight cameras, place them everywhere, tie into the sound board and produce a fully edited concert video. The majority of my work, more than 300 1.5 to 2 hour shows, has been for various locations of the School of Rock. The schools have three seasons a year, and I have been delivering the edited shows on DVD for $25 each. Here's the problem - people don't appear to want physical media any more, and my sales have been declining. Some of the younger parents may never have bought any optical discs or may not have any way to play them. I'd love to deliver digitally, but obviously as soon as I put a file up, it is going to be shared everywhere. Even the password-protected sites like Vimeo offer no special protection, and a password would be shared on Facebook as well. So I've been thinking about a crowd-funding system - "If I get enough of a commitment, I'll put the complete show up on YouTube and/or Facebook." I have a long history of quality work and have established my trustworthiness. Most of these sites seem to be oriented towards continuing support for an art project or band, or a single album. In the schools, some kids are only involved for a single four month season, some are committed for years - but most would only buy DVDs 3 times a year, spending $75 a year. So, what is your take? If you had a child in a music school, how much would you consider fair as a monthly continuing contribution, or requested donation. Should I do it per season, and is that an option with the systems I mentioned? Please: I would ask that this thread not be derailed over issues of copyright. Thank you.
