The CrowdCrowd Episode 15 (Film Distro w/@CineJoe)

on Friday, Sep. 13th

We talk a lot about indie film on The CrowdCrowd, so today we're jumping in with both feet. Joseph Beyer of the Sundance Institute's Artist Services joins host Noah Nelson along with returning special guests Emily Best of Seed & Spark, Jason Cooper of Kickstarted the Movie and CrowdCrowd regular Cindy Marie Jenkins for a discussion about the relationship between crowdfunding and film distribution.

That's just segment one.

We also tackle what the latest Ouya-related controversies mean for the practice of running matching funds promotions alongside crowdfunding campaigns. Plus, as always, we have our #LatteFund picks for you.

Show Notes after the jump.
