Crowdfunding: PBS Digital Studios Partners with Stations
by Brionne Griffin | Marketing Associate | PBS Digital on
PBS Digital Studios, in partnership with Texas Tech Public Broadcasting and KLRU, launched two IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaigns to fund the next season of their original web series. In addition to receiving really cool premiums (read: an Intergalactic Nemesis tee), when a person donates money to either of these projects, PBS and PBS Digital Studios will match dollar for dollar, up to $20,000 each. So check them out and tell all your friends!
Texas Tech Public Broadcasting is raising funds to hold art and music events for the PBS Digital Studios program "24 Frames," in Lubbock, Texas.
They want to expand the reach of the show by holding events to engage with their audience in new and interesting ways. Imagine a TED event, but only about musicians and artists with music, stories, and entertainment! They want to continue to build on the arts and music community in Lubbock and West Texas and help connect to them, to each other, and to YOU!See more >>
KLRU, the Austin PBS and producer of web original seriesBBQ with FranklinandWhat’s That, Buzz?,has partnered with Austin-based The Intergalactic Nemesis to bring the popular live-action graphic novel Book One: Target Earth to the web.
They're raising funds to record the production in front of a live audience and create a web series totally unlike anything else. Imagine an action-packed 15-episode season comprised of high-energy, creatively-edited episodes 5-7 min in length, each ending in a dramatic cliffhanger. They will then take the stage production and re-imagine it for the internet.See more >>
