So you have a crazy idea. Now what?
Now more than ever can you execute a simple thought into a glorious master plan. The internet has given us the capability to learn anything we need to know, all it takes from us is some dedication and perseverance. There is not a lack of brilliant ideas, there is a lack of the willingness to execute them.
Times are a-changin’
The glory of today is that when you do have an idea, the idea can now be backed by the public – not strictly investors. Crowdfunding provides people like you and me a platform to bring your ideas to blood pumping life. Zach Braff’s Kickstarter campaign is a remarkable example:
“I was about to sign a typical financing deal in order to get the money to make “Wish I Was Here,” my follow up to “Garden State.” It would have involved making a lot of sacrifices I think would have ultimately hurt the film. I’ve been a backer for several projects on Kickstarter and thought the concept was fascinating and revolutionary for artists and innovators of all kinds. But I didn’t imagine it could work on larger-scale projects. I was wrong.” -Zach Braff
Zach’s Art, Zach’s way
Zach didn’t want the usual investors to change anything about the movie he was about to produce. He wanted it his way. $3,105,473 and 46,520 backers later, Wish I Was Here is a favorite in theaters. No alterations made by investors, no budget cuts, no casting changes – a movie precisely the way he wanted it to be. Backed by the public. Zach’s way.
Can’t you see the magic?
