Creating a Video for Your Crowdfunding Project

Our most successful projects have videos that are simple, quickly inform viewers of how their financial support makes a tangible difference, and cost little to no money to produce (cell phone videos are great). It's best to keep video length between 30 - 45 seconds but no longer than 1 minute (so we can share on Instagram). Convey emotion.
