Digital Silver Imaging Presents: CREATING A SUCCESSFUL KICKSTARTER  (Crowd Sourced) CAMPAIGN

During this webinar three very successful photo-related Kickstarter campaigns will be reviewed. It takes more than a good idea and a little luck to reach your goal, it takes a knowledge of the crowd funding process. In this presentation, Lou Jones, Barry Schneier and Digital Silver Imaging will tell you the elements that made their campaigns a success. If you are considering a crowd sourcing campaign, have run your own, or are just curious about the process we invite you to attend.


Barry Schneier raised $109,000 for his Kickstarter project, making his photo book Kickstarter one of the most successful ever. Barry is a photographer and writer who began his career in the 1970s working with up and coming as well as established musicians in Boston, San Francisco and later in Los Angeles. It was there that he became immersed in the world of video and film production working on features, commercials, documentaries and eventually migrating over to the “new” genre of the era; the music video. Barry’s work has been exhibited in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, The Grammy Museum and is housed in permanent collections at Paramount Studios, CBS, MTV, The New England Folk Archives, The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music, Morrison Hotel Gallery, and Proud Gallery in London. His work has appeared in numerous books, publications and on album art. Barry is most noted for his work capturing a young Bruce Springsteen at The Harvard Square Theatre in 1974. Website
