A sure sign that the crowdfunding race is on? Seed&Spark has teamed with Film Independent and curated artistic membership community Big Vision Empty Wallet to offer discounts for their members.

Here's the deal:

"As part of the partnership, Seed&Spark will offer discounts on crowd-funding campaigns and streaming distribution on the Seed&Spark site to Film Independent and BVEW members. In addition, the Seed&Spark team will provide individual consultations on how to develop audience-building campaigns to their community members.  

In return, Film Independent and BVEW will allow Seed&Spark users to redeem their Sparks for membership discounts. Sparks are rewards points that Seed&Spark users can obtain for following, supporting and sharing Seed&Spark Studio crowd-funding campaigns and Seed&Spark Cinema movies."

FIND copresident Josh Walsh calls S&S "a very creative, smart set of tools for indie filmmakers to get their films made and get their films seen, and the focus is on building community rather than just raising cash. It's very much in line with our mission and approach at Film Independent."

The partnership benefits are available to all of FIND's Filmmaker Pro members and BVEW members. 

Here's a video about S&S:
