Lots of knowledge gaining this week. First up, I attended the Transmedia New York City (now StoryCode) immersive meetup about project funding.
Mike Knowlton, cofounder of StoryCode, discussed the various options that are available to storytellers to fund their projects including self-financing, crowdsourcing, markets, investors/VCs, and grants/labs.
Sparrow Hall, a cross-platform storyteller and producer, discussed breaking into branded entertainment.
I tweeted during the event – which I try to do as often as I can. An attendee, Jenn Levine created a Storify for the event, where you can follow along with the conversation. It also includes Mike’s slides, which you may found helpful.
Read, then go off now and raise some dough. Or not.
