Smarthouse Creative's Leroy Mack sits down with "The Choice" creators, Misty Eddy, Molly Silverstein and Nick Escobar, to learn about the creative inspiration behind "The Choice" and what elements make the series unique, for example including an animator on the team to help listeners visualize the tone of each episode. Misty, Molly and Nick describe the fundraising tips that they've learned through their current Kickstarter campaign, ways to encourage your audience members to become "brand champions" for your work, long-term branding strategies, for example creating a project media-plan, and much more!
