    Creating crowdfunding magnetism! Product designer raises over $400,000 on Kickstarter AND Indiegogo

    Creating crowdfunding magnetism! Product designer raises over $400,000 on Kickstarter AND Indiegogo

    Sometimes a product comes along that you know you don’t exactly need, but the way it’s made and the skill with which it’s presented makes you buy it all the same. That might go some way towards explaining what happened with the Kickstarter campaign run by our guest on Crowd Scene today.

    Noam Bar Yohai – a London-based product designer – created a set of refillable, magnetic felt-tip pens and made such a fun campaign video that it made his product irresistible to thousands of people.

    Noam set a goal of £7,000 in order to bring his product – called Magnetips – to life. After five weeks on Kickstarter the total amount raised stood at a whopping £260,000. He then took the project to Indiegogo and carried on raising money there, this time in US dollars.

    In total, his crowdfunding efforts for this one simple product have brought in an impressive $425,000 from 7,000 backers.

    Best Animated Oscar Winner? Ivan Mactaggart on “Loving Vincent” & the Future of Crowdfunding Films

    Best Animated Oscar Winner? Ivan Mactaggart on “Loving Vincent” & the Future of Crowdfunding Films

    In this episode we’re talking with Ivan Mactaggart, the producer of the hotly-anticipated movie “Loving Vincent” to find out more about its unique production and how exactly it got funded.

    Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered what would happen if it came to life? What would the portraits say if they could tell their story? That’s what the Oscar-winning creators of “Loving Vincent” had in mind when they decided to make a film about Vincent Van Gogh. This is no ordinary film though – the team behind it are creating the world’s first feature film where every single frame is an oil painting.

    Having already secured a grant for the movie, the team turned to Kickstarter to raise enough to begin production. In 24 days they raised £53,000 – about $75,000 – from 800 backers.

    Part 2: Elvis, The Beach Boys and The Wrecking Crew: Denny Tedesco shares his Kickstarter story

    Part 2: Elvis, The Beach Boys and The Wrecking Crew: Denny Tedesco shares his Kickstarter story

    This is part 2 of our conversation with filmmaker and crowdfunder Denny Tedesco.

    Denny has a direct link to some of the greatest pop music ever recorded. Throughout the 50s and 60s, a group of session musicians in Los Angeles – known as The Wrecking Crew – became the go-to musicians for producers and musicians including Elvis Presley, Ella Fitzgerald, the Beach Boys and dozens (if not hundreds) of others. Their phenomenal contribution to pop music was largely uncredited by record labels who may have been too embarrassed to put the same names on so many records.

    At the centre of The Wrecking Crew was guitarist Tommy Tedesco and in this episode we’re talking with his son Denny who directed and produced an incredible documentary that tells the whole story.

    Denny released his documentary – also titled “The Wrecking Crew” – back in 2008 and it did fantastically well in film festivals around the world. But to release the film to wider audience he needed to raise enough money to pay the licensing fees for the 120 classic songs featured in the film. Even after receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations, he was still short.

    So Denny turned to Kickstarter in 2013 to raise a further quarter of a million dollars to cover the rest of the fees. Happily, more than 4,000 music-loving backers shared his vision…

    Eat Your Spoon! How the genius idea of edible cutlery attracted nearly 10,000 backers on Kickstarter

    Eat Your Spoon! How the genius idea of edible cutlery attracted nearly 10,000 backers on Kickstarter

    In this episode we are talking about edible cutlery and huge Kickstarter success with crowdfunder Sarah Munir. ‘Edible’ and ‘Cutlery’ are two words that don’t normally go together and yet this is a remarkable idea that may play a significant role in reducing toxic, plastic waste.

    In India alone, it’s estimated that 120 billion pieces of disposable plastic cutlery are thrown away each year. So, the invention of edible, biodegradable cutlery provides an alternative that’s good for everyone.

    Our guest on Crowd Scene today is Sarah Munir, the US representative of the Indian team behind edible cutlery, which recently hit the big time with this idea on Kickstarter.

    The edible cutlery product is called “Bakeys” – which is a reference to the production technique. Sarah launched the Kickstarter campaign for Bakeys two months ago with a goal of $20,000. 30 days later, she had raised close to $300,000 and her campaign was backed by 9,293 people (including Pete). We find out how she did it and – perhaps more importantly – how it’s possible to eat soup with an edible spoon.
