    I don't know if this is allowed but hopefully it is, I am currently working on a documentary web series focusing on urban exploration and the different elements that surround it. If I have put a lot of work into planning it and I am ready to create what I want to create but I need help getting it off the ground. I am using crowd funding to help it become a reality, it would be a real help if anyone could check it out and have a read.

    Plenty of people have done this sort of thing before, it does get a bit tedious after a while

    Have a look at crack the surface, that was a reasonably well put together short video, and touched on some of the ethics around the silly hobby

    Who are you and why should we give you money?

    Better still, why would we give you money to film a documentary on something we already do most days of the week?

    I would never condemn anyone for having a go at anything so goodluck with the project, but I would say that after checking your page and links I dont know if you are Cai or Will, but to be honest, (and this is my personal opinion) the content of the links dont look as though they would inspire people to donate cash, I reckon that you could do with some more relevant content to show potential donors that you are credible as film makers, creatives or even explorers or whatever, Also £750 probably is not a lot when making a documentary but it would be good to give the people with the money an idea of what you plan to spend it on.
    Lastly you say that you have spent a lot of effort planning the project but I could not see any info about a plan or planned content on the page or links, that may help too.

    fingers crossed for you mate.

    All very valid responses, you are all right. I'm not trying to con anybody out of money just purely trying to fund a film. I appreciate your comments.

    No one's saying you're looking to con people out of it. But we get many people popping up saying they want to document the "hobby/lifestyle" from an outside perspective which doesn't really work. The best videos that have come to fruitation so far have been made by people already in the scene.

    Have you made any previous videos about it that could show people the sort of shooting style it would take on?

    I don't see the point in attempting to document something that has been previously done by people associated with the scene

    What is the purpose of your venture may I ask and what I you hoping to achieve with the end result ?

    I don't understand what you mean by outside of the scene? This is something that I do and am interested in, I enjoy film making so why not make a film about something I like to do?

    This thread gives me a Dragon's Den feeling. In order to receive cash for your productions, you will need a lot more information on your website. Anybody who donates money, likes to know what the money will be spent on or used for. I am a follower of 'Stinson Hunter' who never asks for people to donate, they donate because of what he does and the style that he uses. He uploads everything to his website, facebook, twitter, youtube, etc for free.

    I understand that the example is different from what you are doing but it relies on the same concept. Maybe you should upload some sample videos as already suggested?

    Goodluck with your project and I hope your dreams are fulfilled.

    Thank you for the feedback, I am in the process of editing a preview so I will get that up as soon as I can. I will take a look at Stinson Hunter.

    Stinsons homepage will give you some better ideas of how to set your page own up. Please also note that I am not promoting Stinson in any way, it is purely for an example purpose. Once you have everything laid out correctly and the right information, people may happily donate.

    It just didn't think it was a relevant question, suggesting that you cannot document something that has been done before. There are always more than one angle when looking at something.
