The ‘asking for money’ part for independent filmmakers is often the biggest hesitation to even making the movie you want to make. It’s awkward, success is not guaranteed, you have to defend your story and answer gazillions of questions.

But it doesn’t have to be distressing. You can learn many things from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, fundraising is one of them.

They make it fun to watch, they answer good questions, they are honest and genuine – which is why we’re instantly attracted to them. And for good reason – they deliver quality work.

Watch their crowdfunding video and you’re guaranteed to learn from these two independent filmmakers.
