Well that's great for you. Well done!
Really now my thoughts on pricing would be like really "how much would be pay for something that's an hour long compared to something that's two hours long and of it's availability." You see when I go to the cinema and spend €14 on a film I want to get my money's worth so I go see the longest film on that has got good reviews as well. My film is only fifty minutes so I thought at first I should charge people €5 at most. Then again it's only available through Vimeo so I might as well charge an extra €1 because also my film is a non-profit film, I take that into consideration I have keep my pro account alive so any revenue coming from that helps keep my account alive and if I get more than it would go into the current film I am working on now.
As for promotion I thought I gathered a small following with the film gathering more funding than it needed through Kickstarter. I try to focus mainly through Facebook and independent review sites. I only got one review so far but a very good one and through Facebook I have a business profile where anyone can be my friend and talk to me and I just spread word about my film, when it'll be released and what I am working on at the moment.
I don't know but perhaps when it is released people will more than likely pay to see it because I believe on pre-order they might think I don't have the film on it and might steal their money. I don't blame people if they think that but really getting the word out when it is released I think is the main thing. Of course some promos and shorts really do help, it really helped with my Kickstarter.
Thank you for the kind words.
1) I'll be sure to add a picture of myself on the project page because all the videos will be animated, giving out shout outs and updates but it's going to have a better voice next time :)
2) That's a good idea, I'll get to work on that straight away, a nice picture would be really helpful, you're right.
3) I'll make sure to do that right now thank you so much.
Pretty much what the above said, do start one! And as for equipment, if your school won't spend any money on ye, then I'd suggest using your phones, always remember, story is KING.
India has a huge film industry - Bollywood! And if you're interested in it, my advice would be to try it out, to see if you like it, take photos, mess around with lighting, look up how to videos and try it out, do take the class and whatever else can help you.
It looks like you got over your goal, congrats! But as for advice, I was advised to have a lot of Facebook friends, not just people that you don't know but rather people your friends are friends with, if you have over a thousand, I was told, you'd have a successful campaign.
Hey thanks there. Really glad you liked them, would you mind sharing (spamming) them to other people who you think would like them and also would you mind if I check out your work and share it if you have any? I'm really am interested in what other people have worked on. Even if you don't want to, just checking them out and liking them was enough, thanks again!
