You may have already heard that Zach Braff has a kickstarter page for a new film he wants to make-

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1869987317/wish-i-was-here-1

Dirty bastard. No, Zach Braff, crowdsourced funding isn't for you, you're famous and worth $22 million dollars (source). No. Not for you.

Discuss.

Uh, if people want to see him direct something on his own then more power to them. It's not like they are being forced.
#14
The last I saw of Zach Braff was when he was an asshole to that kid on that shitty Ashton Kutcher show.
Also he's the voice on the commercial for that water purifier thing.

Also Scrubs was shit and I hope he gets run over by a rogue train.

I don't know no Zach Braff, nor do I care. Nor do I think you should either, but that's your thing.

But what's your opinion on Zapp Brannigan?

Edit: Oh, Scrubs guy! Yeah he's cool.

No one is sitting with a gun to anyone's head and forcing them to donate. You kickstart things that you want to kickstart. If you want to kickstart Zach Braff's stupid movie, then kickstart Zach Braff's stupid movie.

You have too much time on your hands if you're capable of becoming enraged over someone's kickstarter project.

Get over it, TS, you colossal twat.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

*sigh* I know everybody can Kickstart whatever they want, but ffs it shouldn't be a "free money" pool for rich celebrities who could easily afford to pay for it themselves.

This pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter.

Why not? In theory anyone who uses Kickstart could pay for their project themselves if they worked and saved up.
#23
On the one hand, it's exploitative. On the other hand, people are free to do what they want with their money. On the third hand, I don't particularly care about this situation, but I would watch the spoof film.
#24
I hate the whole idea of kickstarter and think one day every single form of entertainment(movies,film,products etc) will have to be funded by all of us. On top of us having to pay for it also when it comes out. But I'll defend him doing this. He was in talks with some people and just didn't like the deal we was about to agree too. He wanted to have 100% creative control. And movies are expensive as hell to make. Just because he is a multimillionaire doesn't mean he can just go an risk millions and millions of his own money on a movie that might completely bomb. But I still think kickstarter is stupid.
#25
$22 million dollars is barely enough to make a film these days, just saying. He could with that money, sure, but then if it bombed he'd be completely broke. Plus he wouldn't have any money at all in the 6-month or so gap between finishing shooting and the film actually coming out.

No, I know that.

Most people's idea of Kickstarter is that it's for people who want to start a project but don't have the immediate means to fund it themselves.

There has already been huge backlash in the gaming community for big publishers like EA or whatever doing Kickstarters, when they don't really need to.

The reasoning behind this is the fear that if more and more big names start using Kickstarter, eventually they'll simply push all of the smaller projects aside, and people will start expecting only big, corporate projects from a website that was made primarily for indie projects.

It's great for Kickstarter itself, obviously, since big projects with big goals mean more money for them, but it's kind of a disheartening idea to imagine a Kickstarter of the future with nothing but "Fund Niki Minaj's new album!" and "pledge money for the next Michael Bay film!" on the front page.

EDIT: that being said, this is just one guy making a movie and using his star power for some extra security in making it. It's nowhere near as bad as ****ing EA asking people for money.

The cast and writers of the tv show Veronica Mars did a kickstarter so they could turn it into a movie. Kristen Bell isn't as successful as Braff but she's got a hit show on Showtime with Don Cheadle and has a couple of movie lined up so she's getting paid for sure. Is it really that different? Both are well known but they aren't like elite movie stars, if Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise was doing a kickstarter that would be more of a head scratcher.

Also, that video thing is excellent. I've never seen his first film, I don't watch Scrubs, but I kinda wanna give him some money now just because that video was so good.

How come? This is what I'm not getting. He's stated elsewhere that he's already putting quite a bit of his own money into this. He has no problem taking a risk, however he didn't like the deals offered by the studios, so he's getting the rest of he funding elsewhere. He doesn't want to give up control over the final edit. This is understandable. It's his film. He wants to cast freely, he wants to edit freely, he wants to shoot where he wants. He sees another option, he exploits it and he doesn't lie.

No one is being forced into putting their money into this. They're well-aware that it's not an investment, but a donation. In fact, you may proceed to NOT put your money into this project.

Yup, plus from the description of it, it might be using CGI/heavy production design.


I disagree about that: he should have complete confidence in his project and a willingness to take a risk. In a way, he already has.

It's a small indie movie. Could be made for under a million
