Podcast Ep. 2: Crowdfunding Success Story – James Burgess Cox & CTRL ALT DELETE
In this episode I interview James Burgess Cox about his successful Kickstarter campaign for CTRL ALT DELETE, a Crichton-esque science fiction thriller about artificial intelligence run amok.
We begin our discussion talking about Cox’s background, then move on to a discussion of his film’s story, and its context in the history of science fiction film.
17 minutes in, we get into the nitty-gritty of his Kickstarter campaign, discussing how exactly he succeeded in raising over $20,000 for his little film.
This episode features some great, actionable advice on running a successful Kickstarter campaign.
