"When people watch your video, they kinda have to fall in love with you a little bit, because they're not just giving money to your project, they're giving money to you."
- Julie Coniglio of Awkward Hug discusses her team's successfully funded campaign
for alternate reality game Socks, Inc.
at GDC 2012.
Kickstarter head of community Cindy Au joins Coniglio in this video, now free courtesy of GDC vault. Topics include figuring out how much money was needed to make the game, who was going to fund the game, and how Awkward Hug planned to reach those possible funders.
This video has also been made free as part of Gamasutra's week-long series on alternative funding methods.
