Veronica Mars Backers Weren’t Going To Back Your Campaign
Joe Wilson (@joewilsontv) believes that backers of the Veronica Mars project were backing the project because of the high profile nature of the campaign, but he does not believe that the frenzy caused any other independent filmmakers to lose contributions. He also has a campaign running on Indiegogo. Watch below.
Metronews.ca caught up with Braff to interview him about his experience on Kickstarter thus far and how he has handled the criticism he has faced. Notable quotable: “I think it started a giant conversation that we’re probably due to have.”
Firstly, the idea behind crowdfunding is that someone has an amazing idea that they cannot finance and so they bring this idea to the people to see if they are interested in supporting said idea. Regular people with great ideas now have a forum to share and support one another. It almost has a utopian type of aura to it. Anything is possible with the help of others.
But when celebrities get involved to fund their own projects, this grassroots flavor is confused.
