How To Harness Twitter For Your Film’s Crowdfunding Campaign

At Film Sprites PR we have a particular fondness for Twitter. After all, it’s how we got started. We’ve seen how incredibly powerful it can be to convey a message, bring people together and grow a film’s audience.

It can also be a powerhouse when it comes to spreading the word about your film during a crowdfunding campaign. In 140 characters you can spread the word, share your vision and have contributors helping to back your creation. We’ve assisted with many crowdfunding campaigns for films, both in pre-production and post-production, and we’ve seen how well Twitter can work for crowdfunding. Most recently we assisted with the successful Kickstarter for Daphne Fisher’s Enough, helping to not only secure the $6K goal but also helping to raise an additional $945.

So how can you, as a filmmaker, harness the little blue bird to help secure the funds you need for your film? Here’s a few tips to help you make the best of Twitter during your crowdfunding campaign.

Exciting Updates and News in the New Year

Film Sprites PR has been back in the office from January 14th, so we wish everyone a belated Happy New Year!

We had a tremendously exciting 2016 and 2017 looks set to be just as exciting.

What 2016 Taught Me (And How It’s Changing Things At Film Sprites PR)

Firstly, I had been seemingly treading water for a very long time. As much as I love what we do here at Film Sprites PR, I was itching to make even more of an impact and make even more of a difference. Thus, in addition to all of the genre films we assist with publicity and digital marketing services, we’re also looking to have more of a social impact by also assisting the wide spectrum of projects I talked about in a previous post. Part of the reason is that connection is at the heart of what we do here at Film Sprites PR, and so connecting filmmakers with these types of content to a wider audience that will support them is a huge privilege. One of the things I discovered whilst assisting with the Enough Kickstarter (albeit for a short time) was that social impact films encourage people to share their experiences. It helps create a wider dialogue around an issue or a subject. It moves people to a purpose.
