PR, Kickstarter, and Building Community & Brand.
Axanar exists because of all of you, those who have supported the project through Kickstarter and other avenues. What began as a top-notch fan film has grown into a full-fledged independent production. It’s more than we ever originally imagined. In fact, as Arlo Guthrie said, you may think it’s a movement—and that’s what it is.
In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Mike Bawden, the marketing and PR pro who will be heading up the next Axanar Kickstarter, to talk about building community through supporters, being accountable to those who fund projects, and how continuity and collaboration are key to success.
In our news segment, Alec and Rob recount their experiences presenting Axanar at WonderCon in Anaheim.
