Last month, I was part of a highly successful campaign ran by a very motivated and driven group of bloggers, to help promote and raise funds to make a film by Shemar Moore called The Bounce Back. The campaign was so successful, Indiegogo, extended the fundraising period for another week. I am honored to be a part of this group of dynamic, powerful women who proved that women are a force to be reckoned with.
Here's the official press release from Erica Pena-Vest, CEO of Entertainment New Media Network:
The film reached and exceeded its goal of $500,000 on Sunday with still 7 days left making it the #4 MOST FUNDED FILMS OF ALL TIME USING CROWDFUNDING. (as of July 28, 2013)
1. Veronica Mars Film - Kickstarter - $5.7M - campaign ended 91,585 funders
2. Wish I Were Here - Zach Braff - Kickstarter $3.1 M - campaign ended - 46,520 funders
3. Road Hard – Adam Corrolla – FundAnything $837,5K (campaign still running) – 8,571 funders
4. The Bounce Back Film – Indiegogo - $547.1K (campaign still running) - 2980 funders
The Bounce Back used a unique approach to reach its audience by turning to social media and online media influencers to spread their message. They recruited 80 bloggers, part of the Entertainment New Media Network, to help their team do outreach through online channels throughout the campaign. “Mr. Moore was relatively new to social media and didn’t have much of an online presence. He’s one of the most popular (and loved) male actors on television but without online reach, many of his fans would not have known about this rare opportunity to partner with him on this project,” stated Erica I. Pena-Vest, Founder of Entertainment New Media Network,” Mr. Moore and the uniqueness of this project are why fans and supporters showed up to help fund this film. We just told them where to find it”.
Many of the film’s 2000+ contributors are loyal fans of Shemar Moore’s. The Bounce Back Indiegogo campaign offers perks from a phone call from Mr. Moore to being an extra on set.
ABOUT THE BOUNCE BACK - "The Bounce Back" is a heartfelt romantic comedy about finding the courage to love after love has let you down. It started its crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo on JUNE 11, 2013. The campaign will end Aug 4, 2013 at 11:59PM PST.
