Throughout our CrowdSOURCING video series, we’ve shared how content creators can spread the word about their film, TV, or digital projects. Is this next video, Stage 32 CEO Richard “RB” Botto, author of the best-selling book Crowdsourcing For Filmmakers: Indie Film and the Power of the Crowd, talks about the most viable ways to spread the world about any creative project so that it is seen, heard, and funded.

More exclusively, he hones in on why some filmmakers don’t believe they have to say or do much at all to attract attention. Unfortunately, even the very best projects can go unnoticed because some filmmakers think their message will take on a life of its own.

Watch the video below to discover why this misconception can hurt filmmakers, and what they can do differently with their brand to change it.
