Crowdfire is available for iPhone and Android, but you can also access it through its website, which is what I’m going to show you in the video below.

Interview with Film Trooper – How to monetize feature films


Scott McMahon of joins Subscriber Nation to talk about monetizing feature films, making videos with basic gear and creating video content for your audience.

Film Trooper is designed to help filmmakers become entrepreneurs.

How do you monetize a feature film? How do you make and sell a product online and where does your film fit into that?

Your film is an advertisement that you’re using to sell something more valuable. You don’t need to sell to everybody – you only need to sell to a small group of people that will buy it.

How did Scott get into filmmaking?

He went to film school, made a lot of bad short films, but created one that was decent enough to get hired at Sony PlayStation. He was there for 12 years and ran their cinematic department.

But there’s always been that need to make a feature film himself and he really wanted to figure out how to make something with just the gear that we own in our backpack. And so he made his film, The Cube, for $500 with no crew.

What inspired Scott to start Film Trooper?
