The objective of this lesson is for students to develop creative projects that they will “pitch” to investors on Kickstarter.
Many people have used Kickstarter as a way to gain exposure and financing for projects that, otherwise, would have fallen through the cracks. Most recently, the creator of the TV show Veronica Mars posted a project to make a feature film of the TV show, and, to date, it has raised $5 million dollars of financing.
Some media may contain mature content. Discretion is advised when viewing with students.
Students should watch the videos above and work individually, in small groups, or as a class to develop a project idea that they can post on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is an online platform that aims to help fund creative projects ranging from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology.
