Kung Fury’s Crowdfunding Doesn’t End with Kickstarter

Action comedy KUNG FURY is keeping the crowdfunding love alive by giving new fans the chance to buy in to the same rewards as their $5-level Kickstarter campaign backers. 
At the beginning of this year, they tripled their goal and raised over $630,000 from more than 17,000 fans. Now, thanks to their VHX site and the private Updates feature, newcomers can get in on private backer perks including the Production Diary for a contribution of five bucks. 
It’s an awesome way to let new fans show their support — and to continue raising money for the project — after their Kickstarter has come and gone.

Pro-tip: Use your trailer

Fans want to see a trailer. Make it easy to find and click on your site. Sounds like a no-brainer, but we’ve seen some great projects who somehow miss this opportunity, or who direct traffic away from their site. (SEO hint: All free VHX theme designs open your trailer without taking the viewer to a new page.)
Even if your final, polished trailer isn’t ready, this is the chance to give your audience a taste of your work. Now they have a reason to buy, or just to get excited and start following the project.
Not ready to release yet? Use your crowdfunding video, or tease with a rough cut of a scene. Heck! Turn the camera on yourself and just talk about the film. It’s important to show stuff if you’ve got stuff. Get more trailer upload tips.

A must-see political doc

Citizen Koch dives deep into the waters of modern political spending. And boy are they murky. This fast-paced doc explores the maneuvering that went into the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, and the super-corporate political landscape that emerged since. According to both Democrats and Republicans profiled in the film, it doesn’t look good for either party. 
Speaking of murky, there was a moment where Citizen Koch itself wasn’t going to happen, due to some strange production dealings. Luckily, the filmmakers took to Kickstarter to crowdfund, and are now distributing directly from their website to citizens everywhere. 
Hot tip: Check out the Special Edition for lots of extra footage, including a conversation with Michael Moore.
