I would love to start a site dedicated to photographers and similar artists where it works like Kickstarter and allows people to fund creative work or equipment purchases for artists that might never have been able to push their career forward could with donations or assistance from other photographers…
Has anyone used Kickstarter to try to do this? Have you been successful? Would it need a different audience?
Very interested in people's points of view on something like this…
Maybe we can get the big guns involved….et all..
What are your opinions?
Would the ability for people to privately fund artistic projects be a good thing?
Would it turn into a disaster?
Would zero or limited payoff to the investor be acceptable?
Much like Kickstarter selling your creative idea is a key part to most sussessful projects – this could help people hone their creative pitches and get support in the process..
So community – what do you think?
This was spurred by the recent success story ofand his need to sell everything just to survive, then the community has chipped in to help him recover what he needed to lose and allow him to continue on his career path….
Micropayments for artist support?
Heycould we do this with Google Checkout? right from an artists Google+ page?
