Ask Me anything about my web series funding campaign Melody Match.Me

Helena Clarke
Sep 11, 2017

Melody Match.Me is a romantic comedy in a modern setting. It is a non-dialogue story told through visuals and music with references to a music video style narrative.

Felicity is the main protagonist, a desolate introvert soul at first, seeking love and confidence. Her clumsy, geeky and nerdy nature is a formula for a tragic comedy.

The story concentrates around Felicity and her match Donald, who is confused, gentle and also a geeky character, unaware of his perfect match – Felicity. His girlfriend Raquel – who is the obnoxious, self-centered antagonist of Felicity, compliments Donald’s character.

A short series of events lead to the transformation of Felicity from the ‘ugly duckling’ to the beautiful ‘swan’ with the MELODYMATCH.ME dating website being at the centre of this comedy drama.

Can you consider seeking the help of digital marketers in growing your online presence and getting funds you need for this project? Why or why not?

Sep 11, 9:05AM EDT0

I do consider it   absolutely it works i am sure but i can't finance them currently . In the future  with a finished product that needs promoting and one which i have the budget for digital marketing i will!

Do you think long distance relationships can work?

Sep 11, 6:05AM EDT0

Hello Blake, 

Yes i do believe it's possible all depending on the people involved , their genuine feelings for each other and a lot of work and commitment. I know people who it's worked for but they eventually cut the distance part of it out :)

What are your back-up plans if your crowdfunding campaign fails?

Sep 11, 1:04AM EDT0

I will have to postpone the web series and save for about a year ! Unless I find someone willing to invest in it.

How do you deal with people who lie on their profile?

Sep 10, 11:01AM EDT0

Honestly for me if they are lieing already and i haven't even met them i tend to dissolve contact with them , then again it depends on what kind of lies they are , if they say they are 2 years  younger or two inches taller , or love to do yoga but dont , those little details dont bother me , but if they lie about being single or something like that it is a big NO!

What advice do you give for online dating?

Sep 10, 8:11AM EDT0

I am no professional when it comes to dating online but i can certainly recommend being honest with the photos you put up , to put details of what you love to do in life , just a few important ones, to most of all enjoy the experience and use it to build confidence in the dating world and to be very very patient!!

What are the drawbacks, if any, on using crowdfunding platforms?

Sep 10, 8:07AM EDT0

To be honest i have not found any drawbacks to it as yet. If by chance though you dont succeed in the funding though you will have to find a way to make it as once it's out there everyone knows about it and will be asking you when it's going to made !

Do you have a plan for spending funds that you raise through your campaign? Will you make your costs transparent? 

Sep 10, 5:06AM EDT0

Hello Shilpa , 

Yes I will make the costs as transparent as possible, it's only fair to those people who have made the contribution !

Do you think religion or culture matter?

Sep 10, 4:55AM EDT0

In what way do you mean ? If it's related to online dating I guess that depends on the person themselves if it's something that they value and need in a partner then it does matter to them but it's an individual and very personal thing.

How much research did you do in regard to crowdfunding before you settled on this particular site?

Sep 10, 4:50AM EDT0

I spoke with friend who had funded campaigns and also read a book on crowd Funding by Jamey Stonemaier which was very insightful but I have so much to learn still , I think running one reaches you so much more !

Is the population you are targeting to donate the same as your target group?

Sep 10, 4:22AM EDT0

Hello Matthew, 

Yes most of them are then some are family and friends and also to increase publicity of the web series while funding the campaign.  I think it's a story that many people will relate to so the target audience is quite broad .

Does it cost me anything to start a crowdfunding campaign?

Sep 10, 3:58AM EDT0

Hello Perez ,

The crowd funding platform doesn't charge anything but does take a miniscule percentage of what raise very insignificant amount .

Would you consider getting a specialist onboard in order to help you make this campaign a success?

Sep 10, 2:36AM EDT0

Hello Derek ,

It would be ideal but unfortunately I don't have any funds to pay a specialist hence the crowd funding.

What do you feel the biggest benefits of Crowdfunding are?

Sep 10, 12:42AM EDT0

It gives the ability to make something better than I would have without it and to also show what I have been working on to people.  It also made me personally realise ho w supportive people are of each other!
