If you’re a first-time filmmaker, you should market your film or other project first. This is what Stage 32 CEO Richard “RB” Botto covers in the next video in his continued series that dives deep into crowdSOURCING for filmmakers.

Rb is the best-selling author of Crowdsourcing For Filmmakers: Indie Film and the Power of the Crowd, and he covers this crucial point in the video below.

Most of the time, as a first-time filmmaker or content creator, no one really knows who you are. Therefore, pushing out content about the project should be your first step. By giving your audience ownership of the project (let them name the dog in your film or choose the food you’ll be serving in a certain scene), they’re going to remember you. And then they’ll begin to do their homework on you.

Watch the video below to fully take in what RB means:
