So I’ve gotten through three full days of the Kickstarter for Pin Up! The Movie and I’m feeling good.
As of 12:01am MT, we were at 35% of our goal. That’s fabulous.
Check this out. This is what the progress bar looks like for the current project.
Let me give this some context. Those of who have been following the project know that this is a relaunch. I did a Kickstarter over the summer that I cancelled because the funding just wasn’t there. So here’s what the project for that project looked like.
Zoom into that first few day section. We were at 0% funded. We never reached the 35% mark.
Here’s another point of comparison. First the current project:
And then the previous one:
Backers are giving on an average of $75 more this campaign than last. That’s fabulous.
We still have a LONG ways to go (almost $9,000). But according to folks who’ve studied Kickstarter metrics, the first three days of a successful campaign on average reaches 28% of its goal. I’m cautiously optimistic.
The next challenge – to get us to be a Kickstarter staff pick/featured project, a most popular documentary, and a most popular film and video project. But it’s only with backing that we’ll get there.
