What Projects Work Best On Kickstarter? [Pics]
Charts created for the company's 2nd Birthday, shows the amount of dollars pledged to each category, percentage of successful projects and more.
To celebrate their 2nd Birthday, Kickstarter posted numbers and charts on their blog demonstrating the success of their projects and campaigns. The top chart shows the number of dollars pledged to each category. Film is way out in front with nearly $20 million in pledges and Music takes second place with just over $13 million. 10 of the 13 categories have received over $1 million each in pledges.
The fact that Film is leading the categories on Kickstarter is promising for the future of independent film funding. In January, the Sundance Film Institute announced a partnership with Kickstarter that will offer its community of indie filmmakers guidance and support in funding and promoting their work by highlighting selected film projects on the crowd-funding site.
