I make a lot of my living recording for what are now termed "video assets".  This is a better term than "content" in that "asset" implies value.  But there is currently a great hostility to spending what it takes to do what it takes to make great video.  There is a huge suspicion among many younger (and not so young) business people (esp in tech) that the business of movie making is a big scam, and that they can do just as well with their pal's kid, a 5D, a GoPro and FCX.  What I find among these folks is a willful blindness to the crappiness of what they are accepting from their newbie filmmakers--the "good enough"aesthetic.  It's been ascendant for awhile now, maybe fashions will evolve, finally.

Some of these crowd funding things are really starting to pick my ass as well.

Just techniques day, is a wine where they had shot a pile of footage! traveling around the country.

And now want $2k to get color correction sound design etc done.

First off, if you can travel around the country filming, then you should save up the $2k yourself.

If you can't do that, you shouldn't be making films.

And how can you get all the finishing down for $2k?

Oh, right. They will use that money probably for materials, and have everyone else work for free.
