Do you want to help fund a tennis project. My last post introduced you to a book that was written with funding from Kickstarter. There is currently another tennis based project on Kickstarter that is looking for funding called Jock Boyz.
Jock Boyz follows the journey of Jullian Sullivan and Arsenio Culver, two best friends from North Philadelphia on their journey to become professional tennis athletes. Throughout the series, viewers will have the opportunity to experience the trials and tribulations that these young men encounter.
The project – started November 29th, runs through December 29th @ 3:00 pm. The project needs $16,000 in funding to get off the ground. Unfortunately, they only have $7 pledged so far. Maybe my readers will make a difference. Go to the web site and learn more about the project. Here is a link to the shows Kickstarter page. There is a promotional videothere too.
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Since our launch on April 28, 2009, over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding more than 30,000 creative projects. If you like stats, there’s lots more here.
Thousands of creative projects are funding on Kickstarter at any given moment. Each project is independently created and crafted by the person behind it. The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control and responsibility over their projects. They spend weeks building their project pages, shooting their videos, and brainstorming what rewards to offer backers. When they’re ready, creators launch their project and share it with their community.
Every project creator sets their project’s funding goal and deadline. If people like the project, they can pledge money to make it happen. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, all backers’ credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short, no one is charged. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing.
