"The truth is that not many people will give money if you only post a set photograph or a film trailer. A trailer is a sales tool, not a pitch tool. It’s designed to make people want to see your film, not fund it. In other words, Do Not Use A Film Trailer or Scene as your video.

People give to other people, not necessarily to projects. Many filmmakers make the mistake of not appearing in their pitch videos. Be. In. Your. Pitch. Video. Say a few words to your potential funders, be as personable as possible, and chances are you’ll be rewarded.

Looking for statistics? Campaigns with a pitch video raise an average of 114% more than campaigns that don’t. In other words, have a pitch video. And don’t make it too long! It’s a pitch, not a dissertation. Keep your video fun, loose, informative, and from 2 1⁄2 to 3 minutes in length." - Source: http://www.indiewire.com/article/exclus ... -crowdfund

Do you think if i can shoot a video of me and my students making music live, can increase the chance of raising atleast 30% of our funding goal?

Could you paste the link to your campaign? It doesn't seem to go anywhere.

Yes - definitely would recommend creating a video pitch. Just look at the stats - "Campaigns with a pitch video raise an average of 114% more than campaigns that don’t."
