After the last couple of years of struggling to get films made its become clear as to the way I want to move forward. The aim for the next year is to make Jpm Films Worldwide completely self sufficient in regards to funding.
What I mean by that is to generate funding in a way that won't cost anyone anything financially. But how can I do this?
Easy. But your help is needed.
How can you help?
As a YouTube Partner I can generate income from views on any video content I upload to YouTube. If you watch our videos you are actually helping Jpm Films Worldwide financially.
The key to really helping is to watch 100% of the videos. YouTube operates on a watch time basis meaning that the longer you watch the higher a video / channel rises in the YouTube search rankings.
People think that by simply clicking into a video and leaving right away will give the channel a view count. That is no longer the case as many people created fake accounts to bump up the view counts on their real channels.
I have a passion to do this and do it right. I'm now again at a point were I now have a small group of people willing to pitch in to help for free but that won't last forever. We were there before in the Worthless Insanity days. But as always people have bills to pay and mouths to feed and eventually lose interest in helping for free. I don't believe that it is fair to always expect people to do favours all the time. I'd like to get Jpm Films Worldwide to the point where it will be generating its own funding to both fund filmmaking projects and paying people.
Indeed there are always other avenues of getting funding from external 3rd parties but I'd far rather create a platform that is 100% independent from 3rd parties.
That is just the first option.
The new podcasts will be second option.
Unlike YouTube right now I'm unaware of any way to monetise podcast content but there is a very real chance to get companies to sponcer podcasts. Again the best way to help us with this is to listen and share our podcasts. We are in the very early days of Podcasts but we are ready with a mobile studio set up that can be built and recording within 5 minutes. I've a few ideas for different audio shows and a few friends have shown interest in getting involved.
Again I'd like to achieve the ability to exchange some monetary compensation to the people that will work with me in the future.
As well as Soundcloud I'll be moving the podcasts to iTunes if and when the audio content becomes successful enough.
In recent years some people have encouraged me to produce and sell apparel that would both help promote and fund the channel and short films. I agree to a certain degree but at this point I don't believe there is the support to justify apparel. Plus it means it would cost people money to support Jpm Films Worldwide. I don't want to do that right now.
If you'd like to help support us and generate income for free it's this simple.
