What many people don’t know: Mark Tapio Kines is actually the first filmmaker to ever crowdfund a movie. Some sources say the birth of crowdfunding took place in Europe, in 2004. Wrong! Mark’s first feature was crowdfunded in 1998. Listen to what else this down-to-earth film expert has to say.
Screenwriters get Personal, Episode No. 9, Sarah Rosenkrantz
In the ninth episode, Hans-Peter’s guest is Sarah Rosenkrantz. Born in 1989 in New London, Connecticut, Sarah went to live with her aunt and uncle in L.A. when she was 15 (with the permission of her wonderful and nurturing parents). Her aunt and uncle are independent filmmakers and took Sarah on a physical and psychological journey through all sorts of artistic landscapes.
No wonder, Sarah, now 24, is already writing and directing her first feature film. Its title is “All is Forgiven” (http://allisforgivenmovie.com), and Fox TV picked it as one of the projects to promote on “The Crowdfunder Show”.
Hear about Sarah’s exciting life and her encouraging wisdom she gathered in that short period of time!
