A kickstarter is a really good idea ::) High Crime is crying out for a proper release

I have just sent them an email about the Kickstarter idea.  Fingers crossed.

So, I got a very prompt response from Rick Knight, the CEO of Dorado Films.  He says that they have been looking at the possibility of using Kickstarter for a while now but are still reeling from the low sales of previous titles.  The cult DVD market really looks to be struggling.

But here's the good news.  They are considering releasing a box set of High Crime, Special Cop in Action, Roma Violenta, Napoli Violenta A Gun for a Cop, The Black Hand and Weapons of Death if it is economically viable.  How cool would that be?

No brainer - put out a box set and use kickstarter to get it going.

I get the impression that they don't know how best to use Kickstarter.

I suppose you could have different increments. So, for a basic version of the box set you could charge $30, $40 for a steelbook, $50 for a numbered limited edition, $75 for the box and a printed poster and $100 for the box and their other DVD releases.  Could get quite creative with it.  The best thing is that they would not have to press the DVDs unless they met their funding goal.

I gather if the goal isn't reached you don't pay?

Nope, very little risk. Would be a better way to gauge interest than using the screener approach.

Would enough people be interested enough to buy it though?

Perhaps we should use the approach to fund the first official LL&L DVD ;).

Let's hope they go with the Kickstarter idea. Mike Malloy managed to get nearly $15,000 for his documentary and at the moment The Lost Films of Herschell Gordon Lewis Restoration Project is up to about $6,500 of its $10,000 goal with nearly three weeks to go.
 
I'm not sure how much Dorado would need to raise to release the box set, but considering calibre of the titles they're mentioning, I'm sure they'd have it funded within a week or two with the help of the euro cult community and some curious Kickstarter regulars.


I hope the low sales of their previous titles won't stop them from releasing these, because in all honesty I'd never heard about Dorado film until this post (which might explain why people haven't bought their previous releases)

I see you corrected it  ::)


I did think you messed up rather than didn't want them to release it  :D

Okayyyy. Whilst it is encouraging to see that they are using Kickstarter they have gone about this the wrong way with completely the wrong title to test the waters with. My suggestions for the increments were the same as the ones I listed in an earlier post in this thread and were purely based on packaging. Perhaps I'll be wrong, some strange things get funded on Kickstarter and the rewards might attract some support.  $25,000 might be possible but $40,000?  Will be interesting to see what happens.

2000 copies, each copy sells for $20 - that would make $40,000... I also thought it was a high target to aim for, but when you fire up the calculator it isn't that unrealistic. The only problem is that (I'm guessing) you're very unlikely to find 2000 people who are willing to buy the DVD's.
