I cannot imagine a better match than Richard Botto writing about crowdsourcing for filmmakers in the digital age. RB is masterful in his knowledge of the digital space and attracting an audience, as he's shown with Stage 32, and this is the next logical step: applying that expertise to making successful films, which is one of the most important things to learn for breaking into today's and tomorrow's entertainment industry.

Fact: No one knows crowdsourcing better than RB. And now, all of his unparalleled knowledge and detailed case studies are packed together into a single volume –– Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers. From gathering feedback and ideas to piecing together film crews and connecting with an audience, this book will without a doubt become an invaluable resource in every filmmaker's journey from script to screen.
- John T. Trigonis, Author, Crowdfunding for Filmmakers
Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers should be required reading for any writer, director, or producer looking to build a career as a filmmaker. The book is a perfect encapsulation of the expertise RB developed through founding and growing Stage 32; it couldn’t be more relevant to the world of independent film.
