But they do it very well though, it's very high profile, and they are
almost certainly the biggest?
That means a good number of the projects end up reaching their target funding.

Sure, all marketing and distribution helps, but of course the most
important marketing is the hard work you put in yourself.
As for torrents, when I released an ebook quite a few years ago on
torrent I simply hosted and listed it myself and within a few days
(with no publicity at all) I got notified by my web host that I had
exceeded my multi GB web site traffic limit it was so popular!

Not an issue for Youtube Partners.
If you've got a good film/doco/whatever I suspect it wouldn't be too
hard to find a youtube partner to host it for you (specially if you
let them get some or all the ad revenue).
I'm doing this for a filmmaker friend of mine:
(only a trailer now, but I will be hosting the 3 x full length doco
episodes on Youtube for him)
