Have you considered Kickstarter, 4mrdncr?
Of course, and I may still do it (though I've been warned that:
(a) 90% of your time must be devoted to social networking--something I'm not that fluent with--to get people to the Kickstarter site and/or to donate. So little time is left-over to actually work on the film, and
(b)that self-contributing is not unheard of to reach a goal in the desigated time allowed).
But more importantly, there already was a way to support the film...
Since January 2009, the trailer to the doc has been posted at www.dancemedia.com/v/1528
(run by Macfadden Perf.Arts Media conglomerate which publishes Dance Magazine, Pointe, etc.etc.etc.) with links to the Dance Films Association (my film's fiscal sponsor-- which allows donations to the film to be tax deductible, and allows me to apply for other grants by giving me "nonprofit status" under the DFA.)
The DFA has a page on its website for its 'fiscally sponsored works-in-progress' which DOES have a "Donate" button
As you can see, this page has a link to the DFA PayPal account which then allows funds to be directed to the appropriate project(s).
Maybe the DFA-sponosored w-i-p page was hard to find on the DFA site, (there is no link on the DFA homepage, it must be reached thru a drop-down menu), or maybe it was just the economy, but there hasn't been much action in the last two years. And yet there is such a clamor for news about Angel and/or his company. It's so puzzling and ironic to me--especially now, when the chance to see Angel dance will be even less after June 28th.
But anyways, thanks for the inquiry.
