Kickstarters and crowdfunding campaigns have become a new normal for independent games, but how do you tackle this stuff if you're not a Double Fine or a Star Citizen? In this talk, merritt will share some insights from her experience crowdfunding small to medium-sized political, personal, and creative projects. You'll learn tricks like rolling your own campaign platforms to keep your costs low, working with your networks to raise interest in your project, and telling a story without giving yourself away. Because everybody needs money. That's why they call it money.
