Awesome video buddy!! If anyone here is serious about Crowdfunding, this might interest you. I enrolled in « Incredible Dream Machine program by Greg Jacobs and Tim Godfrey » You can google it, It’s one of the most complete educational program available about Crowdfunding and how the guys show how they raised 100K in 24h and explain everything in a clear step by step. This program cost me $2900 to get in and it was worth every penny. Now I’m willing to sell my copy to anyone serious about Crowdfunding at a very tiny fraction of the price.

Hello my name is Luis Santiago and I'm writing a book about tattoos. I'm also a poor veteran and need a shout out for a Indiegogo. Please help me promote my book. God bless you all. -Lou
Brilliant and perfect timing. Was just thinking about a crowd funding campaign for my film based on best selling book A Mango Shaped Space about synesthesia. Tired of waiting for producers and was JUST about to powwow with the book's author about raising money to go out to Tilda Swinton and Geoffrey Rush to attach, who both have synesthesia. I learned so much watching this. ALSO love the Skybell product and would definitely want one. Additional concepts I'd love to see - control my radiant heat settings from my iPhone while I'm out and about. Same for porch light and some interior lighting. I do like the chocolate milk concept tho. A kill switch for WiFi while I'm sleeping would be great too.

Amazing piece and love the story. The focus and message is spot on. Damon asked the right questions and the answers drew me in. I agree the "after" the campaign is just as and more important after the successful raise. Great job and thanks for sharing the message.
Great piece. What crowfunding platform did he use?
What would I like to see in my home? A rectangular dining room table that easily expands to fit 12 - 14 people. But can shrink back down to regular size. I have a big family and often do family dinners.
