Infographic introduction to crowdfunding


Long, scrolling infographics like the one linked here have become a bit of a fad – the best ones tell an engaging story by visualizing related information in ways that make that information easier to understand. This one doesn't quite reach the heights that I've seen in really great infographics – it's too monochromatic, and some of the information isn't helped by its graphical presentation. Still, there are some good tidbits here. Raising funds through sites like Kickstarter is now an essential part of independent filmmaking so it's good to know all you can about the phenomenon of "crowdfunding."
