Hey AN Community,
My name is Steven Christian. I play Safety for the Oregon State University Football Team. I am going into my senior season after recovering from two hip surgeries, transferring from University of Hawaii, getting my undergraduate degree, getting accepted into graduate school, and playing my first season at OSU in 2012. Among other thing, I am an aspiring artist and animator who has various projects going on, which include creating my first animated series. If you would like to help be apart of my project or have any information that would be very valuable. I would greatly appreciate it. If anything else, I would appreciate if you could share this email with other so that more people are aware of what I am trying to do. It is about time student-athletes like myself try to utilize the skills we learn from playing and incorporate them into other avenues of life. Hopefully, what I do can serve as an example for those with the same aspirations as me.
I only have 3 pledges right now and there are only 15 days left to pledge!!!
At Least 6 Episodes and Shorts
Remastering the Current Webcomics
Possible T-Shirt designs
Here is the kickstarter link: http://kck.st/WVoah6
Much like my comics, I plan to incorporate sketch comedy and combine them with various themes and trends in social media to show the relevance and impact that they have on the future of our society.
The characters will go on mundane adventures that include the road to becoming a rapper, taking over social trends, and dancing...Lots and lots of dancing!!
Thank you very much. Hopefully i can reach my goal. at this rate it doesn't seem like i will though...
Thank you for taking the time to watch it, as well as the other 41 people thus far.
Crowdfunding takes some doing. "If at first you fail your deed try again til you succeed" - Underdog
Your story is fantastic. What you need is the publicity which you should use social networking for. Look at the demographics your story and property should target and post on those sites. Seek out people on social networking sites that your Kickstarter campaign would be appealing to.
Hey thanx for the information. Ill try to hit the social networks hard for these next two weeks.
Here's another tip that will be in my upcoming crowdfunding ebook.
It's called your fan base or list. I have a fan about a few years older than you. He does his own webcomic and over the past few years he's built up a fan base of 25,000 people. These are people who accept every post, every email. Now, when he wants to crowdfund, all he has to do is say to these people is to donate $1 each. He then gets an instant $25k. If he asks for $5 each he's looking at six figures.
This is a staple of internet marketing. You may need to build up a fan base via your newspaper exposure. It takes some study but once hatted things should go smoother.
that makes sense, so consistency is the key to success in this area.
Good luck! If it doesn't work out this time around take the good advice offered and try again. You'll be successful by committing to the project and developing it further. No matter what the outcome learn from it and keep creating. Create your way to a successful project.
