STEP ONE in our funding strategy was to crowdfund keeping the project operational in our early pre-production phase (and during COVID) for the Thorn Trees TV pilot by inviting influencers & supporters to:
- FUND our social media campaign to get the word out and attract more influencers/supporters.
- FUND creating an LLC business entity for producing Thorn Trees.
- FUND RACHEL’S GAZETTE, our unique publication for supporting witches stories’ and our outreach to influencers/supporters (Our female protagonist is the editor!). Get to know RACHEL before she comes to life in the pilot for our series.
- FUND subscriptions to Internet Database (IMDb Pro) and other resources required for cast and crew outreach.
- FUND our Assistant Producers Internship Program for Thorn Trees (We’ve been supporting interns since they lost their prior paid educational positions due to COVID in March 2020. What we raise beyond our funding requirement will go to them.)
