"Thanks Steve. Making those videos was one of my favorite parts of the process, and it did not cost anything other than time."

"I know it was your behind the scenes videos that got me excited about the series. So much detail went into that village townsquare. I would have to say that those kind of videos would be part of a marketing budget since it takes time to make, edit…"

"Happy Dance!!! I like that! HA! Yeah, I really appreciate people's creative solutions to crowdfunding. It's harder than it looks, for sure. "

"Hi Adam, We put out a press release. That was a waste of $. We hit the film festival circuit. We paid for Google Advertising when it hit YouTube. Google helped us get a lot of YouTube views, and in that respect, it was worth it. I think the most…"

"Thanks, Dawn. This is all really interesting.  You say you thought people wanted something tangible... I liked one Kickstarter reward which was to do a happy dance for a small donation.  Definitely a tip to check postage rates, and perhaps…"

"Thanks for sharing, Dawn.  This is some really good information.  I am interested in what you did to market and distribute the series after you had it funded and created.  Can you share some of your experience on that end with us?"

"I don't know anything about the Neil Gaiman case, so I can't speak to that. But I do believe it is easy to get swept up in the rewards part of crowdfunding. Of course we checked shipping costs before we began production, but as if by…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Dawn Brown's discussion House of Monsters Kickstarter Budget Breakdown
"I'm curious as to what you would do differently in hindsight. Presumably make a bigger allowance for postage costs and/or offer more virtual stuff? Any tips in that direction? Wasn't there a famous case involving Neil Gaiman's…"

"Thanks for sharing this Dawn. I think it is a great tool as we all have to make some kind of budget and this is a great starting point as it was created by somebody with experience. Glad to see it dug up."

House of Monsters Kickstarter Budget Breakdown

Hey everyone, I have been asked to share our preliminary budget from the House of Monsters Kickstarter campaign from a few years ago. This was our early plan for how the funds would be spent. One of these days I would like to update this to reflect what we ended up spending. I can tell you, the Kickstarter rewards ended up costing 3x what we planned. International…See More

Dawn Brown replied to tam hinton's discussion colouring silicone
"It is best to use the pigment designed to work with the PlatSil Gel-10 you are using. I know they are expensive, but they are designed to work together. And, a little goes a long way. One set of silicone pigments should cover your needs for a very…"

Dawn Brown replied to tam hinton's discussion colouring silicone
"Hi Tam, working with silicone has its unique challenges. One of the main things to consider is nothing will stick to silicone but silicone. If you try to paint your silicone piece later with acrylic or whatever, it will just rub off. It is worth it…"

Dawn Brown replied to Dawn Brown's discussion New stopmo short on SYFY channel
"Hi Nick! Thank you! Glad you like the character. Fortunately I did not have any problems animating the head. The helmet splits in two. The back half is permanently attached to the collar, so only the front pulls off, and is keyed to fit back into…"

StopmoNick replied to Dawn Brown's discussion New stopmo short on SYFY channel
"Nice character! So I guess you would have had the same problem of animating a head inside a clear helmet as Mars Attacks.  Did you remove and replace the helmet, as they did before giving up and going cgi?  Or is it possibly only the front…"
