As outlined in Changelings #22 Vlog update, I’ve put together a list of perks I thought people might be interested in if they were to donate to a horror film, crowdfund campaign and placed them here for discussion.
Consider this market research for my @fundition campaign. Are these perks you’re interested in? Do you have any suggestions for perks you MIGHT be interested in for a project like Changelings? I’m looping in @ashtv, @namiks and @brian-rhodes for their feedback. Hope you don’t mind!
The list below is a combination of perks I found on other, successful horror film crowdfunding campaigns along with some of my own ideas. Those films are: Muck, The Rat, Blue Ruin and Gehenna.

Finally, please spread the word to anyone who might be remotely interested in horror and / or sci-fi films and stories. It would be fun to have conversations about these kinds of movies so I can get a better idea of what people want in not only the horror space, but the cryptocurrency space. Maybe there’s some overlap there. 🙂
