Fanfunding Crowdsourcing
Maiia Brindle

Everyone from Spike Lee, Sylvestor Stallone to Ricky Lake and Willie Nelson have been there. 

Fan or crowd funding began around 2001 with Artists Share coming online about the same time as us in 2003, when systems were much slower than they are today. Their projects have received 6 Grammys 21 Grammy nominations.  So it bodes well for growth in this sector due to much improved social media and video tools.

Indiegogo is the largest platform.  "-IndieGogo takes 4% of your earnings if you reach your goal and 9% if you don’t. Kickstarter is all or nothing. If you don’t reach your goal no money is exchanged, but if you do reach your goal you get the full amount minus 5%."
