Tips from my crowdfunding experience

The great chaps at Arts Professional have run a piece on my crowdfunding experience. If you remember, I was aiming to pay professional actors and director to help workshop my quantum mechanics script.

Here’s a link to my original crowdfunding video – https://youtu.be/JTjduZoCWpk

And here’s the piece: happy reading!

12 hours

I’ve just had an astonishing 12 hours.

Overnight, the talentbacker campaign for script development for the quantum script (see previous post) hit and then exceeded its target with 6 days still to go. It’s not like running a race, cheered on by friends. It’s like asking them to run for you, while you keep yelling from the sidelines.
Then, I got a mail saying I’ve won a place on Screen Yorkshire’s Triangle 2014!
Links and details will follow, but there are times for sharing and times for more info. After bombarding everyone I know to ask for cash for three weeks, now is definitely a time for just sharing.
And then shutting up.

To fund or not to fund? A Q&A on QM with actor Annette Chown

To fund or not to fund? A Q&A on QM with actor Annette Chown

The thoughtful and thought-provoking Bristol actor Annette Chown has a bit of a thing about quantum mechanics. Which is lucky for me.

Annette has very generously given over a blog posting to a Q&A with me about my quantum mechanics script and current attempts to crowdfund enough cash to pay for a day in the rehearsal room. Here it is: http://downstagewrite.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/to-be-or-not-to-be-that-is-question-but.html.

It goes without saying: I’d love you to be one of our theatre angels – please feel very at liberty to pledge your support before 15 January ’14 here : http://www.talentbacker.com/talents/view/gill-kirk) – You can start at a fiver and there are quantum-related rewards!

Thanks!
