Studio creative development we give is similar to what you'd get with one of the top of the line broadcast video companies. They usually charge $20,000+, yet at a much smaller amount of the cost, and significantly more heart, passion, and connection with our clients goals.

Where We Work

We live around innovation center points, similar to Mountain View and Silicon Valley, New York's Silicon Alley, and LA's Silicon Beach. Our filming takes place in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, Seattle, Portland, Miami, and New York City.

OUR EXPERTISE IS IN MAKING COMPLEX PROJECTS SIMPLE.

THE END OF BORING COMMERCIALS

The thing about Kickstarter video companies

Most crowdfunding video companies come from an age where they were supporting existing companies, and the traditional ad budget to include video production have almost always been out of reach for startups or inventors. Until Start Motion Media came along.

Would you rather pinch every penny and have it come out like a boring 90’s era infomercial? Finally, history went a new direction, and our company was 

designed with kickstarter video production in mind. We strike a perfect balance with slim, efficient budgets, but still providing market research, benchmarking, and performance video editing, similar to companies that charge double, or even triple.

Kickstarter without video

You might be considering launching a kickstarter without a video, but that’s a really poor idea – studies show that a backer is three times more likely to support your kickstarter if there is a video in it.

Your kickstarter video pitch:

When Start Motion Media begins developing a video pitch, we use a proprietary discovery process to learn about your project features and the definitive benefits that can be provided, but we don’t just stop there. Because a video with features must also cater to the culture you are creating with your project, and the emotional impact. Don’t believe us? Try watching a 3 minute infomercial on daytime TV that is just talking about the features, and let us know if you buy the thing. The important component to your kickstarter pitch is that you must address the modern culture of our times – people love supporting kickstarter projects because they want to be a part of startup entrepreneurship culture – you have to bring them into the back end, and help them explore both the inspiration and the risks associated with making a kickstarter, and your journey as a founder. Another way to look at the pitch is to go for a more comedic approach, because people actually take you more seriously when you make them laugh – it shows your confidence and your preparedness. Don’t be meek. Build a video on culture.

 

How much does a kickstarter video cost?

Pricing out a Kickstarter video is simple. Have a look at this chart to see what we mean. The hard part is when you are looking for Kickstarter video production on a budget, because then you are having to trim and let go of the more normal components.

Most video makers and videographers are amateur.  They fail at all the details.

Video Marketing Tips and Tricks

We like to say "keep is brief" . A 90 second video is proving to be the most effective from a conversions standpoint.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kickstarter Services

The way we like to talk about Kickstarter is the fusion of a documentary, a product launch campaign, and a commercial. It started out as documentary style, and has now evolved into a more commercial space, especially for product companies. We like to think that the approach you make should be usable for more than just a startup idea, so a hybrid approach is needed, but overall there are multiple reasons you’d want to get across to your backers - why you need money, what it is you are raising funds for, and the envisioned future - all of it needs to be covered within about two minutes. The crowdfunding platform has lots of supportive info for the things they see well in their visual sales pitch, and we also wrote our own guide on the subject

Top 10 Craziest Crowdfunding Projects

  1. Duration
    Every video on Kickstarter has a fairly typical length in terms of attention. Therefore, it should take about three minutes (do or take) for your video to orient the viewer in a lovely place that will keep your viewers engaged throughout the video.

You can pass on your message that doesn’t last long and lose interest while informing the public about the product and how it can solve the problem it may have. 2. B-roll recording/application demo
If you’re trying to generate interest in your product, it’s best not to make straightforward, low-engagement content.

Screenshots or screenshots of your speech as you talk about the video and demonstrate product benefits is an efficient way to engage with audience.

B-roll records can be an example of people being happy and excited when using the product, showing the product in a different environment, or other products. You try to focus your eyes on the screen while revealing the product’s featuresPerhapse spend some time offering your audience a chance to wander elsewhere while announcing the value of your product. The faster you can change the image, the more often you can capture the human mind in a great state. Please consider taking a look at an example of a b-roll on my recent trip to the Philippines.

  1. lighting
    Lighting can enhance film feel and improve product quality. It’s easier for viewers to pick up your movie less and edit it if it’s back or covered in shadow. On the other hand, poor lighting can lead to skepticism and a lack of professionalism.

Understanding can lead to hope and appreciation for your product and make your audience think, “Damn, I want this product in my life.”

  1. Tell a story
    The best commercial products have stories about the actual users (using the case) of the products. The more usage you can provide, the more impact your product will have on who will benefit from it. We want your audience to feel like this product creates energy for them. They will start to associate your product with the lifestyle they want. Imagine someone buying a GoPro and using it as a license to go on a crazy adventure. The product is a gateway.

As a seller, your show is a great way to show value and impress your audience. So why was this product created? How does this affect your life?

You can hire a professional photographer to shoot the videos if you like that. It can be an excellent investment, but a good video that tells a satisfying story should be beneficial to your career.

  1. Image Preview
    Thumbnails are listenable and allow people to see what your videos are about to show. Overviews are the first in the challenges users face when browsing your financial aid plans, so creating a visual picture is vital.

You want to respect your audience in the future. It’s more art than science, but try to keep it simple and curious. Thumbnails can inspire an audience that wants to know more, so make sure they play for real and get distracted by the movies, finally buying the product!

5 Best Crowdfunding Videos

A good film is the essence of any fundraising event. In some public services, you cannot start without a platform! Tell your brand story and why it’s a great idea to promote your product and invest in your business.

We recently asked a start-up from SeedLegals which films they inspired the most to produce their films. So here are 5 of the best crowdfunding video contests.

Because it works
Atari has been a part of many childhoods, and that’s how new products have appeared that evoke nostalgia. With the 80s being so trendy, now they are appearing back in 2022. This Kickstarter product seized the right moment to create a crowdfunding event. There’s alot working in this video:

Why it works
Chip shows us how People seeking more audience retention on Kickstarter can use humor very effectively to convince us to invest in this record-breaking campaign. A pacy and funny script compensates for the slightly longer-than-ideal length of the video (3:20). Other things working for the video:

The video shows that you don’t need a huge budget to tell a compelling story. The video conveys the message of the significant impact an excellent Kickstarter video has on your potential customer community and compels the audience to help in a company’s further development. We think the best componends of the video was thayt we see cooking lessons and the community enjoying it, and the story of the founder drives that video – enhancing customer trust.

Tim Ferriss Kickstarter Earnings Guide 2022

Tim Ferriss is undoubtedly the golden son of the digital world. He is so successful in his credit that all the entrepreneurs in the world seem to admire him. So if you have a unique idea or product to market, Tim’s 100,000 Boost in 14 Days will be what you need to build a successful business. Kickstarter is a global platform where communities of creative people encourage new ideas. For example, you may have a unique and unique idea or object. However, a project may not start due to a lack of funds and the absence of a partner to carry it out. If so, Kickstarter is the best way to make your wish come true. It works on crowdfunding. How we decide to understand this are the critical elements of the Kickstarter campaign to complete the platform.

Tim Ferriss guides how to grow 100,000 in 14 days.


In 2012, Tim Ferriss shared the full story of founder Soma on his blog. As part of this effort, he partnered with Mike Del Pont. Almost seven years have passed, and we have seen many changes in the industry. But Tim also encourages dynamic entrepreneurs with his unique experience. According to Tim Ferriss, there is a way to hack Kickstarter in 2022 and grow to 100,000 in 14 days.

Tim Ferris

Related research data is essential.
Tim Ferriss always thanks his friends and fans for his success. He also did not forget to accept what he had learned from his generation. Tim Ferriss has acknowledged the involvement of business friends on numerous occasions. For example, the Board testifies that Tim has seen others succeed.

  1. No hard work: innovative work is the key to success
    According to Tim Ferriss, you need to make your Kickstarter strategy “smart.” Consumers are more able than ever with the internet to create intelligent and more profitable ideas. It teaches to keep essential things in mind before the race is interrupted. 3. Plan your business in advance
    Tim Ferriss is still planning the stages of his Kickstarter campaign. The team will receive a quote for their project. For example, you can prepare mailing lists and commercial products in advance.

According to the Kickstarter site, 165,971 jobs benefited from the platform, while 281,399 received no funding. But why do the 281,399 projects feel like a futile test for founders?

Yes, you’re right. Slow implementation and poor planning can ruin any project.

In an interview with ZURB, Tim describes its importance for marketing strategies. For example, what he did on his first Kickstarter was awesome. First, Tim presented his work to the public and selected 1,000 people to spread the record at lightning speed.

  1. Use of MED rules
    Savvy marketers are always aware of the tiny connections between ideas and product launches.

Tim Ferriss aims to build success in 100,000 runs using a policy called MED. MED means minimum valid. We recommend that you identify the critical points for a 100,000 increase in 14 days and focus on those situations.

How to calculate the MED for a Kickstarter project?

Crowdfunding platforms provide additional power for large operations.

When creating the project plan, Tim instructed us to use all available references to complete the project adequately. You can assign traffic management tasks to virtual assistants. The platforms such as facebook and Linkedin are the best options to get more traffic to your project. Tim Ferriss also encourages you to use your website and blog to sell your work. Affiliate blogs and websites play a vital role in the Kickstarter campaign.

Email marketing is an old and reliable way to invite the public to your work. Since many social media sites are available today, they may not work well as before. However, it is also one of Kickstarter’s most important communication tools.

According to the 2016 Adestra Consumer Acceptance and Use Survey, 43% of consumers sent an email to register for the website. Therefore, it is a good indicator of consumer behavior for the Kickstarter project. Tim Ferriss also considers email marketing the most reliable tool for Kickstarter campaigns.

Top 5 Best Kickstarter – Earn Extra Money
Di Cali (Carlos) Cardoni
disaster. posted April 4, 2022, 5:48 PM EST

When it comes to crowdfunding platforms, Kickstarter is probably one of the first names that come to mind. Kickstarter is where small ideas can become the next big thing. Use Shovel Knight mission and OUYA game console. Games, gadgets, and even TV shows can see their niche thanks to people’s financial promises. And thanks to Kickstarter, these jobs can make a lot of money. The following sentences follow the announcement.
Some of the most successful Kickstarters have received millions of dollars in crowdfunding. As a result, many successful products, such as books, intelligent devices, and board games, started and are still prevalent in popular places.

These five Kickstarter contests are the highest performing contests since Q1 2022.

  1. Pebble 2, Time 2 and Pebble Core (2016) – $12,779,843
    Pebble Launcher
    Source: gravel
    The Pebble 2, which replaces the use of technology with a cheaper smartwatch (more on that later), has improved every way. New look with better tracking, easier reading, and water resistance up to 30 meters. The competition includes the Time 2, a stable, fair, and high-performance smartwatch. In addition, the Pebble Core is a power tracker and comes with remote access to Spotify, that way you can always leave the phone at home.

The details continue

  1. Haven of Frost (2020) – $12,969,608
    Frosthaven is a sequel to the award-winning board game Gloomhaven. The new game takes viewers in a “European-inspired” snowy fantasy world. Players control a mighty army as they battle new demons and dangerous invaders to protect Frosthaven from destruction and survive the winter. Gloomhaven History also debuted on Kickstarter, earning $386,104, surpassing the primary goal of $70,000.

Frosthaven will be available for pre-order from 2022. This line continues as a post.
Three. Coolest Cooler (2018): $13,285,226

Source: Kickstarter
Producer Ryan Grepper wants to create an upcoming movie that can do more than just store drinks. So in addition to the water-cooled cooler, Coolest has a rechargeable battery charger, removable Bluetooth audio, and a USB charger for your device. It also has LED lights for the night and lots of storage space. Since the July 2014 update, Coolest has reached its initial financial goal in 36 hours.

The following sentences follow the announcement.

  1. The Time of Pebbles (2015) – 203 $38986

Pebble 2 may have made the most popular Kickstarter campaigns list, but it doesn’t come close to Pebble OG. Time Pebble was the first to be designed as a low-cost smartwatch with a proper “e-form” design. Connect your phone to receive notifications, track your energy, and track your time. Kickstarter Pebble is Kickstarter earned over seven years.

The following sentence in the presentation.

  1. Brandon Sanderson’s Four Secret Novels (2022) – $22 million; First

Research historian Brandon Sanderson plans to release four “secret stories” throughout 2023. His recent efforts have been dubbed the most successful on Kickstarter. . Three of the upcoming stories come alive in the world of his Cosmere book.

As of March 4, 2022, Brandon’s offering had raised over $22 million, well above its starting goal of $1 million. Now that we see the contest, it still has 27 days off until funds close.

Edit Edit with WPBakery Page Builder
The thing about fundraisers are that they are all about one thing - establishing trust in an emerging brand. Most of our clients haven’t promoted anything before. So there is a whole set of branding work to do - identifying the ideal customer archetype, coming up with story elements that take video production for product launch to the next level, so that the project creator can walk away with more than just an explainer ad, but a better idea for how to teil their inspiring story.
Every morning we get up and ask ourselves the same thing. It’s not about being cookie cutter, it’s about being unique, and yet one of the most important items for how to make a commercial ads for emerging brands is the way of including the normal, expected items, while still being inspiring, energizing, and engaging to the audience. It always starts with super awesome script writing, and then it goes into product photography, creative direction, and advanced editing and coloring techniques. There are alot of guides out there for people who are going to do a DIY approach, but the reason why folks hire experienced creatives is that is really is a skillset, and it’s hard ot replace 10 years of experience.
We love pebble watch, and the peak design videos. Also really cool videos were shown for analogue cameras, as well as this swiss army knife of jackets, which we did to help our client raise $9 million! An exhaustive list of the best video was something we spent a lot of time studying, and you should too. Benchmarking is an important concept that helps people move beyond standard view of how a film is supposed to come off, and you can see what really works.
Yes! The number one rule is: don’t be boring! Number two - don’t embarrass everyone by showing us a long and windy crap video! Literally, this is your chance to sell us on why to trust your emerging brand, and intuition goes along way. If we see ten seconds and it’s all shaky and bad audio well, that’s it, toast! Other rules are self-explanatory, like show something that actually exists and dont fake out your viewers, usually you want at least a functional prototype before launching. And the final rule is : keep it brief! Our research head did a massive data analysis and shouted that 25 minutes is th e absolute maximum. Some projects are doign quite well with 90 seconds. If you need more info on rules you can check out some of the helpful guides that they made.
Capture our attention and help us “get it” in the first 10 seconds Show us the why and the background of the project Explore the solution features and the insights that customers receive End with a distinct and actionable request: your call to action should include a active statement, like “back us now!” Platforms like indiegogo can accept 1080p and 4k video files, however 4k files sometimes have weird frame issues. We recommend 24p framerate; it looks much more cinematic - 60p is not really a production framrate as it actually makes things look fake - we use 60p only when we plan to slow it down in post production. Encode it to h264 . video depends on how complex the product is, but in general a two minute length should be sufficient. Research is suggesting that anything longer than that and your viewers are being asked to commit too much time, it’s most likely that someone will give us your frame size, as well as pictures inside of it. Make sure to use a nice camera with advanced lenses, so your work appears to be at a professional level, phone recordings might seem convenient, but because everything is so sharp, people will know you recorded it on the phone and that will lose trust for the project. The best size for a kick starter project is one client span between five and $10k usd to bring a professional production company and to support it
Time and time again we are asked this question, and the numbers don’t lie. Of the projects that get funded, for yours to get funded, it’s going to be five times more likely to do so if it has a Gone are the days of a simple sales page and lots of available backers. Your page needs to review and match the style and design guidelines, which are similar to all other projects being funded at that level. usually this means graphic design, and a video on your page. to go without video, to save some money, ultimately make it much harder to convert customers.
TV ads can take years and cost many hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce, not to mention the price of listing an ad on a major network is not achievable for many emerging brands. Good production however aims to make things as affordable as possible, was still retaining a professional approach. The creations are usually slightly longer, to help you have more content to work with for your emerging brand, and yet the price to produce it is almost always more reasonable. Professional studios charge 10 K enough, and if you’re willing to work with a less experienced video technician, you could probably get it done for five or 6K. But the nice thing about having a producer is that during your media production you can create contacts which more accurately match the way you hoped to go as a brand, focus on not spending too much at the start, but producing a professional result, that way you can work your way up to larger advertising costs.
When we first started writing this guide for how to make a better fundraiser, we realize that most first time prior developers have no idea about the proper iterative approach of motion advertising development. A kick starter anything I want, but to get customers is another story. Usually before anything is found, the script with a shotlist is written, and all the stakeholders creatively engage in understanding which studio shots to produce. Only when the plan is final and signed off, do we move into production phase. The best kick starters . do tremendous amounts of research about which videos are succeeding, that way you can learn from the production techniques that others have employed, to make yours look and sound somewhere. This is the best way to guarantee that you achieve a good result, it’s called benchmarking, and the best place you can go is to start right in your industry, and see what the success for a video ads from there already look like
After launching hundreds of projects, and completing production for a various set of fundraising and emerging brands clients, we are happy to say that all of our projects have successfully generated a more engagement for their companies. Whether it was to convert new customers on the sales page, or to tell the stories of the founders, we’ve done it every time, and as a production company we pride ourselves in reducing the risk often inherent and creative investment, by using a format that as well regarded, effective, and repeatable.
Really, the only requirements for your kick starter, is that it be engaging fearlessness, and that people don’t get bored. A long preamble without ever seeing the products, it’s not really the way to get noticed. Your product should have his features front and forward, and a hug viewers in the better understanding what is included Period when we think about the requirements for that type of screen capture, we always imagine product shots being the most meaningful, and then having a lifestyle story elements to support it. Many products are unusually small, so one of the requirements is macro photography to be able to interpret the close-up image more effectively. The final requirement is there a need to have background music and script writing, so that the viewer can understand what the pitch is, and feel energized throughout.
Whether it’s somewhere across the country, or right in your hometown, deciding where to make your commercial production, is a difficult task. We’ve taken film making to the maximum customizability and convenience for our customers, allowing them to produce very often right in their home city, or in one of our production hubs. Whether it is climbing the cliffs in San Diego, crossing the Golden gate Bridge in San Francisco, getting a Hi-Rez view in downtown Denver, or paddle boarding the river in Austin Texas, or walking the Highline in New York City, we have film crews standing by who work directly with our remote executive team, to produce award-winning creative visual content.
Way to download it, is to look into the source code, in the chrome browser simply right click on the html5 object, and looked for the embed code that shows the referenced data blob, which will contain the URL of the mp4 file. Choose the file name with the word high and it will be the best quality to download, just right click on that link, and opening a new window. Then you can save the MP4 direct to your computer. KS does not even serve their videos in HD, so probably a smaller than HD size is the best you’ll be able to get.
First off you need to do an in-depth brand intake and decide the main points of your video, and the product, and the services that provide your customers the best benefits. Then based on the information, look at how your competitors are doing and come up with a shot list that is similar to what has been done. I feel the shot list is complete, you can look into writing a narration, which either you can record or record with professional voiceover. Once the filming day is complete, edit the to the correct length, and add in the properly licensed background music. We found that music and color grading are some of the most important elements.
Affordable production is something that we all seek after, because of how outrageous most of the prices are in the domain of professional creative content production. That is why we designed a streamlined five step process, that makes it affordable for any client to be able to access high-level production ability. The first step is deciding on the scope that is feasible to film with an a single day, and the second step is deciding on locations which will not cost too much to rent. After that working with top camera talent is a must, that is where we would never sacrifice fees, because the highest quality equipment and having a real artist work in the camera, is really the only way to do it. z finally, being efficient and contained with your editing team, means that there are only a few turnarounds needed to achieve the final results. That is one of the best ways to achieve an affordable creative service product, because you will not be overcharged during the editing, as we will not promise any random animations or extra things I can end up costing more. The result? A professional looking streamline services for under $9,000, and amazing.
The best film making template starts with a really good story board, and for this we opt in to use the Stanford persuasive technology lab approach for how to make a pitch for your startup business. Ultimately, the best templates will include all of the following. First start by exploring the issue and challenge with your part of the problem with your product is hoping to solve, then explore the features and explain to us why it is a solution to the problem. Then, when you are ready, you can tell us about the insights and the customer outcomes, basically… How does your customers life improve once they have funded the kick starter? I probably have something to do with what your product does, or what the fundraiser will help achieve on a larger scale. Eventually, make sure that the viewers know perfectly about your background, and how you envision the future to play out with your company. Finally you can end with a call to action, which is most important especially for any time you want a customer to provide a distinct commercial action, such as buy now! Or, become a backer!
The cost of a film team is something that we are proud to offer as a flat rate. Although it varies between communities, and production companies, our production company can use it if you do it for between seven to $8000. The reason for this cost includes retaining a studio for between 4 to 6 weeks, and all of the equipment and labor time that goes into it. We know it’s not cheap, but on average your clients raise about $72,000 once they have the video, and we’re looking to help keep your costs below 10% of the expected revenue generation. This is a video that you’ll be able to use for years to come, and ultimately has incredible impact on how you can reach your community.
Use world class technology, and advanced writing systems, to help ensure higher converting video products. In terms of creation, we walked clients step-by-step the whole way, So that creating a kick starter video is fast and seamless. Even though it’s not instantaneous, or a kickstart or online tool that you can use, he usually ends up looking much more cinematic and commercially viable, that something you can do in the house. We all know you can spend four weeks fiddling with your phone to make a project for no cost, but is that really where you want to invest your time or energy? I figure affordable creators are in short supply, so we wanted to make sure you know the best and most direct method for visual advertising
The pathway to create a film, whether you’re making from scratch or if you have already have a pre-written script, is to engage with a creative agency, that knows the process of video development and script writing from end to end. When I start out to create a kick starter video, I always think of the end result, the viewer.

WANDERLUST:

My company, Greenheart Creative, has hired Start Motion Media as a videographer for three consecutive years at the Wanderlust Festival Lake Tahoe or Whistler BC.  they have been responsible for in-depth shooting with very little supervision. they performed well in this production environment, always finding solutions when technical problems arose.  they confidently did what needed to be done to help our production succeed. Start Motion Media is a very mindful person, and is very aware of how others are feeling. I would say that this places him at an advantage when working with clients that may need to be put at ease, or need extra help feeling comfortable with the filming process. they takes extremely good care of himself and others on a personal and professional level, and thus seems to manage stressful situations with grace.  they communicates with compassion, and is very clear and organized. I have hired Start Motion Media 3 straight years, and plan to bring him on board again next year. I think they would make a great addition to any video production project, because they really cares about continual improvement and doing a good job, always learning from each experience.  

Sincerely,

Jefe


STANFORD UNIVERSITY:

I didn’t feel just like another client or business opportunity. Start Motion Media was able to help me work towards my goals by: organizing my thoughts into a sensible story, helping me create my answers to interview questions, gathering footage, editing footage, and overall creating an awesome video. The most helpful services were storyline creation, pre outlined interview questions and awesome shooting, editing, and video creation. Start Motion Media is thorough, organized, pays attention to detail, prompt, open-minded, and patient. Start Motion Media’s process is very effective. From the first phone call to shooting day, everything was well organized and thought out. I like that they had a list of questions prepared so that they can learn more about the project and the person behind the project – I really think this was an important part of the process as we we’re able to connect with the project better and really define a high quality video. On the day of our shoot, Start Motion Media had a check-list of all the scenes and all the shots we wanted to capture and made sure we had ample footage of each one. they was very strict on the production timeline despite me wanting to add things that were not discussed – I liked that aspect as it would have thrown us off schedule and off track…he kept us together. Start Motion Media provided a quick turnaround during the editing process and followed through with agreements made in our decision to work together. Overall, I am very glad that I had the opportunity to work with StartMotionMEDIA.

I was also surprised by how helpful and directorial they was when helping me tease out my story. they interviewed me and transcribed the whole thing for spoken content for the video, and the questions they was asking were so insightful; they really helped me understand what I was asking from my community of supporters, and what they would get out of supporting me. Lastly, I appreciated that if I would freeze up during filming and forget what to say, Start Motion Media was very gentle but firm about prompting me with pieces of my own story/words from our interview to keep the flow of the narrative going.

knew exactly what I needed. From his script to production to editing, he just kept on wow’ing me. His production is amazing and quality of his videos (and photos, he took a lot of photos for me as well) are out of this world! He is very professional who is extremely easy to work with and he is so accommodating to meet all my needs as well, even very difficult ones!

It made me rethink my kickstarter funnel by building it up first and testing the crowdfunding video with customers. I feel far more comfortable with the list I have now.

The biggest breakthrough I noticed while working together:
To work with someone who is as passionate about the project as the project founders was an amazing feeling. it reinforced why we do what we do. Granted the Kickstarter was not a success but I enjoyed and appreciated having Start Motion Media on our side.

creating a short video documenting inspiring work from the past decade of peace activism. Start Motion Media was thoughtful, organized, and worked quickly to meet our project launch deadline. they accommodated our needs and feedback quickly. I would highly recommend engaging the pre-production brainstorming sessions regarding video content and storyline with Start Motion Media who, in addition to having the technical skills necessary for a production, has a lot of wisdom on effective and persuasive narrative creation as well.

It was an outdoor shoot in a remote area of a park. The video involved about 22 people, a lot of them dancing and singing. The soundtrack was recorded separately. Start Motion Media was the cinematographer, director, and editor. It was simple and direct. This project was done within budget and on time.

There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have been able to raise the money I did with my Commercial without their help. In this extremely thorough and high-integrity service, I received everything I could know about the strategy and science behind a Kickstarter, how to ensure a fully funded project and even email templates to send to backers. On top of all that, Michael was there every step of the way with answers to my questions and an IMMENSE amount of support. He is the best cheerleader!

We got prompt responses. Start Motion Media is very informational when it comes to actually kickstarting a project. This kickstarter video process can be very overwhelming and they will sit down and walk you through it. They want you to succeed in your kickstarter and this is obvious.

I heard Michael give a talk about crowdfunding, and it was clear he had really put in the effort and had the experience to really know it inside and out.

How to Find Best Fundraising Sites on the Web

Implement your inbound content strategy:
So now that you have outlined the editorial strategy and you know what you are going to post about, I’m going to teach you how to have the best results for when this content is posted to your blog.  Some people call this SEO, but the best way to think of it is “content”, because you really are writing for humans rather than machines, but the goal is to get people to organically discover your content.  When you think of headlines and headlands throughout your article, it’s important to focus on your main keywords.  And the content strategy is only “turned on” when people who find you have a way of contacting you.

What to include in a kickstarter video? Here’s what our friends at video brewery recommend:

Kickstarter is all about community. In most cases, people are funding you as much as they’re funding your project. They want to see you, hear your passion, and get excited with you. Viewers also want to make sure you seem competent and trustworthy. When you’re on camera, bring all the energy you can muster, have fun, and smile often.

  • Tell viewers who you are.
  • Tell viewers the story behind your project.
  • Come out and ask for people’s support, explaining why you need it and what you’ll do with their money.
  • Talk about how awesome your rewards are, using any images you can.
  • Explain that if you don’t reach your goal, you’ll get nothing, and everyone will be sad.
  • Thank everyone!

Should I choose a kickstarter video company?

In most cases, a video agency that “does everything” is a lot less experienced than one who focuses on a specific video type. We have been in the realm of crowdfunding videos since 2009, and were the first company in the United States to focus specifically on crowdfunding video production. After $23 Million raised, our company has proven that we know the culture, attitude and direction of kickstarters, much more than your average production company.
