“We have successfully funded the 1st ever crowdfunding feature for Greece and the 2nd for Europe, while we educated the Greek public as to what crowdfunding is and why it is something that is of interest to us all. Crowdfunding is largely unknown in Greece, but not anymore! We are now on our way to bring cinema out of the cinema!” -Stathis Athanasiou

“When I was thinking of starting a campaign, my editor said that her friend had promised to put up $100. I thought, ok: there won’t be a zero. We passed our goal, and that’s financially and emotionally exciting. We want to finish now, and we can. Momentum is invaluable in filmmaking. And we got it.” -Caroline Kepnes



Location: Concord, California

“We set out to give a birthday gift that could never have been expected. Indiegogo made it possible for us to gather thousands of people to show their love for one incredible person. Our tag line was ‘This could be magic.’ Thanks to Indiegogo, it was!” -Danny Kahn
