Hey guys!

Last week, I published a quick blog of the photo RB posted of the final proofs for Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers - Indiefilm and the Power of the Crowd. You can read that entry here.

Today, I'm excited to share the final cover proof for the book and announce that the scheduled release date is now set for September 22nd.


Indiefilm  the Power of the Crowd  Heres the Cover

As a reminder, this is the very first book to be published on the subject of film crowdsourcing. Here's what's being said about the book:


I cannot imagine a better match than Richard Botto writing about crowdsourcing for filmmakers in the digital age. RB is masterful in his knowledge of the digital space and attracting an audience, as he's shown with Stage 32, and this is the next logical step: applying that expertise to making successful films, which is one of the most important things to learn for breaking into today's and tomorrow's entertainment industry.

Dean Silvers - Lawyer, Author of Secrets of Breaking into the Film & TV Business


As a subject matter expert as well as someone who has lived it, RB has a massive amount of wisdom to impart throughout Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers that enables entertainment industry participants to build and take advantage of their personal and social media networks to reach their goals.

Paul Hanson - CEO, Covert Media 


Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers should be required reading for any writer, director, or producer looking to build a career as a filmmaker. The book is a perfect encapsulation of the expertise RB developed through founding and growing Stage 32; it couldn’t be more relevant to the world of independent film.

Although the book won't be released until the 22nd, it is available for pre-order through Amazon right now by clicking here
