Kickstarter is a threshold based online donation system to fund creative projects like music, film, books among others. It is one of many sites used for crowd funding.
Sweet Momentum used crowd funding via Kickstarter as a way to finance post-production on the film, “In His Footsteps”. Shelley Taylor had already invested the large majority of what it took to complete this film. The Kickstarter funds paid for most of the editing and sound engineering of the film (some of the editing had already been done).
The best part of this campaign was that it created a big new family of friends for the film, complete strangers who supported the film and its mission.
