Hello everyone, my friend and I have come into a bit of a financial road block. I met recently with a lawyer who was able to give us a price for copyrighting both the novel (my friend wrote) and the screenplay (I wrote). We wanted to be able to cover all ends since this is our first time getting anything published. Her and I work as a team on every part of this project, but we're having difficulties on how we should approach this financial issue. She's in college (paying classes, room and board all on her own) and I work commissions for Cosplayers. We both aren't ones to normally ask for money, so I wanted to know if there is another way to fundraise? I've set up a Patreon account and so far we received our first donation. The funds would go to us paying the copyright, publishing company and the beginning of our movie making expenses. The first goal on the Patreon site is $2000 to cover the first two expenses. What other ways of funding would you suggest? Thank you in advance!
