With the success of donation based funding through companies like KickStarter and Indiegogo, 

Check out this great article on Indiewire that showcases the funding campaigns for 2014 Sundance selections:

I’m very excited to see the expansion of funding implemented through the JOBS Act to include equity crowd sourcing and the companies that are creating matching funds. Check out this article on Deadline:

This type of funding opens up film financing to a broader audience  and more investors will increase the success rate of getting independent projects off the ground!
