Who am I?
My name is Brendon Marotta. Recently, I finished a feature-length documentary called American Circumcision, which explores the modern circumcision debate and growing movement which believes all human beings have the right to make their own choices about their bodies.
Now, I'm starting our festival run and launch, and would like your helping getting our film and story to the world.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is an ongoing monthly crowdfunding platform. Unlike Kickstarter, where backers give a large sum all at once, Patreon allows backers to contribute a small amount each month. Plus, like any crowdfunding campaign, there are rewards.
Where will the money go?
I need your support for three things:
- Travel: This movie is getting accepted to festivals all over the country. Plane tickets add up fast.
- Promotion: I'd like to document our experience at each festival, by getting footage of our Q&As, and audience reactions. That might mean hiring someone to film, or buying new gear.
- Advertising: Can you imagine our trailer playing on the feed of potential parents? If this patreon is wildly successful, I'll use the extra money to run targeted ads for the film on social media.
With your support, I believe we can turn our festival screenings and release into significant attention and a growing grassroots movement.
What do you get?
Patreon supporters get an exclusive behind the scenes look at our film release, through private updates, podcasts, video from festivals, and a monthly livestream.
Plus, you'll help get this film out the world.
Thanks for supporting my work!
P.S. If there is a larger reward you'd like that you don't see, message me here. If it's reasonable, I'll add it for you.
