Kickstarter for a feature?

Launching a kickstarter campaign soon for a feature called LUNCH It's my first rodeo on kickstarter launching for a film. LUNCH is a fantasy horror comedy feature. My crew and I have so many questions. We have a crew of twenty five onboard. I hear a video can greatly up your success but do we need over 2000 fans or likes on Facebook before we launch to secure $30k-$100,000k in backing? And is it wise to start our goal low at $30k instead of setting it at $100,000k? I'm asking any kickstarter veterans out there for your advice, please. Thank You


- Crowdfunding for a feature without a video is lunacy. People want to see you can pull it off.
- Can you make the movie for $30K? Because when you reach your goal you need to fullfull your part of the deal.
- Do you think the 545 likers are enough? Do you have an idea of how large your reach is? Do you have a marketing plan? Do you already have people who promised a contribution?

Honestly, you'd probably be better off producing a small "proof of concept" short film first, using that to garner attention and build an audience, and then launching your Kickstarter after all of that.

It's also worth noting that fans on facebook are practically worthless unless those people are actually invested you and your ideas. Spend time producing content around your film. Show them exciting bits from the script and pre-production process. Get people interested before asking for money. Otherwise, you'll probably convert a woefully inadequate percentage of your FB likes into Kickstarter donors.
