I am not sure if I should find a way to raise money for one of my ideas or what to say about this. I need some opinions about how Crowdfunding works because I have never did it before. I am interested in what someone has to say about this.

Do you have a big following on social media?
If not it's gonna be crickets..
Do you know how much it will cost to promote it?
crowdfunding needs lots of email contacts, social media audience and advertising budget to work. And it's a ton of effort.
just use your credit card
How many friends do you have between Facebook. Twitter, SnapChat, LinkedIn, et al? Because that's 90 percent of where your funding will come from if you aren't a name of significance.
Here's an awesome podcast you can listen to where Richard "RB" Botto talks about crowdsourcing AND crowdfunding - it's a great place to start: https://www.stage32.com/blog/Creatives-Prepare-to-Get-Motivated-Film-Tro...
Thank you everyone for your comments and support
There are about 4 sites that cater to creative projects. They are fundly, indiegogo, kickstarter, and wemakeit. You can put a campaign on any of them or all of them. Some insist that you only get the funds if you meet the funding goal while others allow access to any funds you secure. The truth is that your contacts will be your main source of funding. Remember to use it wisely such as to get a film in pre-production as some film insiders view it negatively.
