I recently had the opportunity to sit down with John Trigonis, Film Campaign Strategist for Indiegogo and author of Crowdfunding for Filmmakers, 2nd Edition. John began his career as a poet and has since written screenplays and directed short and feature film projects. He is currently writing a comic book series.
His experience with crowdfunding began with a short film called Cerise. He was doubtful that it would work at first, but was converted to crowdfunding after his campaign raised more money than he expected. He has since become a crowdfunding guru and helps other filmmakers achieve their goals at Indiegogo.
