TTLR - EP 121 - Phelim McAleer.png

Our guest, Phelim McAleer, who is a documentary film director and producer, has succeeded in raising money from five separate crowdfunding campaigns for his controversial Kermit Gosnell film project.

But before he got there, he and his documentary film partner and wife, Ann McElhinney, encountered resistance from Kickstarter, a global crowdfunding platform, which censored the project from their website and anticipated a lack of interest from the media.

They immediately kicked back and switched to Indiegogo.

They took it seriously then proved themselves and sold the film by utilizing social media, word-of-mouth, and reaching out to non-media influencers to garner support for the film.

Their creation quickly became the highest-funded crowdfunding project of all time.

  • Use every possible ways to reach out to everyone
