WeFunder -anyone experienced with setting up a film project campaign?

I'm currently setting up a campaign but am unfamiliar with many of the legal questions/incentives We Funder needs answered.  If you have experience as a film producer using this site I'd like to know what your recommendations are for a Low Budget Feature campaign.

Is WeFunder a site? I've never heard of it. That's not a good thing, because if people aren't familiar with the site, there's little chance of people running across your project because they simply don't know it's there.

Every site has its advantages or disadvantages. I couldn't tell you where the most traffic goes for sure, but I'd presume Kickstarter. The challenge there is that KS is all or nothing, so if you don't make your goal  - You get nothing. 

Seed & Spark is only film related and I think they require either 80 or 90% funding to get anything. Indiegogo will give you everything, but they take a large chunk.

I'm not sure what questions they want answered, but it seems like  it might not be your best bet anyway.

I've zero experience of this but recommend checking out Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers: Indie Film and the Power of the Crowd (American Film Market Presents) by Rich Botto.
