If you are serious about your crowdfunding campaign, you absolutely have to make a video.

Don't fret, though. This video won't need a Hollywood production budget. You can produce a perfectly fine video for your crowdfunding page on a budget.

The co-founder of crowdfunding platform RocketHub, Brian Meece, talks to us in this sixth episode of Crowdfund with Cat about what an effective crowdfunding video should look like. He also lays out the framework for how to produce one with limited resources.

RocketHub was acquired by entrepreneurship resource center EFactor a year ago. Since then, Meece has left and is now pursuing independent projects.
