Hey thanks for your reply and feedback, I really appreciate people having the time to look. I am actually going to purchase a better image, but right now it's the end of my month, and i am right out of money, payday is in 3 days, so then i will start pushing forward with stuff. The image i have is a bit naff because it was from a site that stocked non-profit, non copyrighted images - because i don't want to pilfer anyone's artwork.
I've been doing some background work, and it seems like a lot of it is about social media and getting the message "out there". The problem basically is that crowdfunding sites have a ranking system, and when your project starts off, it's got nothing so it starts at the bottom of the ranking tables (i.e. so far down the listing, you cannot see it). Once you get it in the top 3 pages, it becomes a lot more visible and people start seeing it a lot more. So far it's only had about 100 views, but I spoke to someone who is putting out tech news, and she is going to link to it, which is cool, and someone has just added it to their twitter tech news and they have 26k followers. I basically need to do more of this.
I agree with the video stuff. Basically I don't have any money at all, I even had to make my own teleprompter because it's very hard to remember my lines!
It's such a big project it's hard to condense, so I tried to get as much information in there as possible. I am kind of hoping that people pick up on the tech side of things and find it interesting / informative, because there's some genuinely innovative stuff in the project.
The nice thing about crowdfunding seems to be that you can try again and again, so this is still new to me.
