Bonusode #36: Crowdfunding Web Series with Joanna Gaskell

In May of this year the Zombie Orpheus team came to our part of the world to film a pair of companion pieces for the third season of their successful series Gamers, and they brought their friends and partners. Partners like Standard Action‘s Joanna Gaskell.

It was interesting timing for Joanna since she ended up being on set for the last couple of days of the Kickstarter campaign for season 3 of Standard Action. Maybe that helped her keep cool and relax and let nature take it’s course. Nature was already on her side anyhow since they had achieved their initial goal and were well into their stretch goals by then. And rejoice! The fans have demanded a musical episode.

We talk to her about the nature of crowdfunding, who should or shouldn’t be asking fans for money, and how to run a successful campaign. Spoiler alert, it ain’t easy!
