Anyone can start a blog (and so many people have). But producing a internet-based video series – that’s a different beast. There’s a lot more work and expenses to take on, which means there’s that much more at risk.
Caroline Shin is a multimedia journalist who has had all kinds of success “offline” (such as helping with the production of a JayZ video for New York Magazine). Recently, with the help of a Kickstarter (crowdfunding) campaign, she’s preparing to launch a web series called “Cooking with Granny,” which is a cooking show that aims to feature recipes for traditional dishes and stories that have been (and are being) passed down for generations. Personally, I think it’s an amazing concept.
In this interview, we not only discuss the story behind this web series, but we talk about Caroline’s experience using Kickstarter to raise over $11,000 (including her tips for anyone else thinking about crowdfunding a project), what her plans are for the distribution of the web series, and how she plans to actually make money from it.
It’s an interesting story – check it out!
