Compensation is a percentage based on total crowdfunding campaign revenue. Compensation will only be provided if campaign funding goal is met and please keep in mind it could be a year or longer until you get paid – however long production takes is how long it will take the crowdfunding campaign to start, which means the more eager and productive you are, the faster we can get through the production of this series, and the faster not just you but everyone on the production team will get paid.
