My Kickstarter Video as well as promotional art is currently in production so Visuals are a little lacking currently. I need some opinions on a few things I will list below.
Reward Levels: Any feedback is welcome. Right now I have the rewards set as just the bare bones meaning it will be the actual finished product that the campaign is for which is making a book. Considering adding art prints, posters and maybe bookmarks.
Characters: Wanted to know how I should display their images as well as their bio's. I have three layouts in mind but not sure what way would look the best. The first way is to have the character images in a line going across the top 1, 2, 3, 4 then list each characters bio in the order that the images are so 1, 2, 3, 4. The second option is to have a large image above each character's bio. The third is two have a smaller character image next to the corresponding character's bio.
Creators: Refer above to characters since I will be using the same layout most likely for the creators section unless I get feedback from you guys that says I should do something different.
Creator Images: Should the images be professional looking or more casual.
Comic Pages: Thinking of doing something like this that the creators of Dark Beach from this reddit just did for the campaign but I'm not sure if having something like I have now just with finished pages might be better since people could actually read it where as with this image its unreadable but you can see the art. ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/005/1…
Video: Last question is in regards to the video I'm thinking of having a hybrid video of a animated trailer maybe not animated but moving from panel to panel so slightly animated with maybe some audio if not just just subtle background music. Then having an interview with me after. I'm thinking the video will probably be 2 minutes tops. 30 seconds for the trailer and 1:30 for my interview. Let me know what you think of this idea or if I should just do a trailer or a interview instead. Also for the interview portion I would like to know if you think more professional looking or casual would be better.
My final question is about printers, I have been shopping around for some time now and I have ideal printers but could always use more suggestions as the way kickstarter works your final profit to use for printing will fluctuate heavily depending on what reward levels are backed so its important to be able to adapt to these variations if necessary.
Any advice you have regarding kickstarter will be much appreciated if your experienced with this and have had a successful campaign and by successful I mean not exceeding your budget and having to pay out of pocket for extra's I would love to get some eyes on my budgeting and what not to make sure I have thought of everything and that my math is correct.
Thanks again for all the help from you guys much appreciated.
