Calling all Criminal Minds Fans…….. and blogging enthusiasts. Here’s an interesting tale about the influence of social media and how its changing things in Hollywood.
How would you like a phone call from Actor/Producer Shemar Moore star of television’s Criminal Minds? Does attending a Criminal Minds screening party with the cast sound fun? What about being an extra on the set?
Thanks to social media- Blogs, Twitter @bouncebackfilm, Facebook’s Bounce Back Page, these perks and others were revealed to fans of Mr. Moore’s in exchange for helping fund his latest film project “The Bounce Back“. Through a publicity campaign using just 40 bloggers, the film project exceeded its goal of $500,000 on Sunday making it the 4th most funded film of all time using crowd funding – an effort to pool resources, usually via the internet to support efforts to a cause or organization. In this case, its funding the film “The Bounce Back”.
How did this happen? Many of the film’s 2000+ contributors are loyal fans of Shemar Moore and of course they want to support him and help him succeed! In return they get some great perks. Check out the perk list via Indiegogo.com – act fast though, you have one week left to get these cool perks.
While the campaign attained its initial goal last Sunday, they forge ahead for another week to try to continue to cover costs of film distribution. As a supporter of the film you can share in the journey of getting this film to your local theater.
After previewing this video on the film….um yeah $25 for a Valentine from this guy sounds PRETTY.GOOD.TO.ME.
In the ever changing world of film production and film financing, online crowd-funding is still rare but it is becoming a real force. The “The Bounce Back” is the latest success story in this new media fund raising forum – the film exceeded its goal of $500,000 on Sunday making it the #4 MOST FUNDED FILMS OF ALL TIME USING CROWDFUNDING.
Who are the top 3??? ….drum roll please!
Is it really any surprise that bloggers know how to reach the right people with information they are looking for? No surprise to me I mean we bloggers are not just moms typing about food and clothes searching for coupons sitting at the computer while our kids are mindlessly watching TV or playing video games – OK, maybe not ALL the time.
So what do you think? Would you help fund your favorite star’s next project for an autographed photo or phone call from them? Have you looked at the Perks associated with “The Bounce Back”? Which would you be most likely to get? I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
