How Crowdsourcing Helped a Feature Documentary Become a Film Festival, Netflix & iTunes Success

Posted by Joleene DesRosiers

Welcome back to our ongoing crowdSOURCING series. In today’s video, join Stage 32’s very own Richard “RB” Botto as he talks about how the team of the feature documentary film, Mile…Mile and a Half, used crowdsourcing to help fund their film AND create an army of support that led to selling out film festival screenings and debuting at #2 on iTunes, right behind Jiro Dreams of Sushi (with all sorts of incredible successes in between).

And they’re still crowdsourcing their audience today!

Prepared to get hyped up and inspired to use these crowdSOURCING techniques and apply them to your own project.
