i realize with feedback and discussions with other people who have tried this before i am re-working the project goals. I am unable to cancel the current campaign on indiegogo and i’m not going to stop the project or my goals. i’ve just come to realize that i’ve been going about it ALL backwards.
i need to start local and work my way up to the main objectives. I am going to instead fund a cross country trip int he untied states and use those prints for shows and gallery hop. then use the money i make from those investments and fund the european expedition by promoting it the whole way across the country and at gallery hops/festivals.
build a grassroots fundraiser by going out and experiencing america and meeting the people that i’m trying to get to donate to my future projects.
i was trying to go for the whole cake instead of eating one piece at a time. ;D but i think how i’m on the right track. and that’s always for the best.
now don’t get me wrong if from now until the 40 days are up and i get the funding i am DEFINITELY still going to europe. but i think 7000 is just too much when i have put in the networking behind it to gather enough support from all over the map.
