I have heard about Kickstart along the grapevine but never looked up what they are about.


Kickstarter is a way of pitching for finacial support for your own independent creative project. People like film makers, musicians, artists, game developers, comics, fashion, all sorts from the creative world!

You upload your project proposal and hope people like it and opt in a pledge. If you get the the full amount your proposed then you get the money. but only if you get the full amount sponsored.

Unfortunately this is only in the US but there has been news of UK creatives being able to launch projects this autumn (2012)
