Crowdsourcing for film and music should have a built in audience. Example, fans waiting for the next release of a band they like... or, a filmmaker with a successful short looking to make a feature. It works well for gadgets and inventions without a fanbase because they are a fan of the "idea" (and usually get the actual gadget for in advance). But with art, you need those fans built in.

To answer your question, it can work before or after. Before, being the concept, after, being finishing funds. If you don't have fans the latter would have the possibility of being more successful, because, you could show portions of the shoot to try to get them enticed.

The best campaigns have video and interviews! Make sure they know who you are and your mission.

Good luck!
