Tugg is a service for filmmakers and film-lovers alike. It works by expanding the reach of independently made films outside of their usually isolated circles to connect with people across the country who are passionate about film. Unlike services such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Tugg is a vehicle made by filmmakers for filmmakers. That way you can rest assured the right audience is seeing your project instead of you trying to compete among completely unrelated projects. Additionally, Tugg provides “Tugg School” to help educate filmmakers of all levels who may need a little extra coaching to get where they want to be.
