UPDATE: Funding successful! The documentary was fully funded overnight and the project is a go.
Kickstarted, the Kickstarter documentary crowdfunding on Kickstarter, is teetering on the edge of missing a funding goal with less than 24 hours left in the campaign.
We first reported on this campaign in May and I (erroneously) predicted that the film would have little problem meeting its $85,000 goal. I must admit I’m shocked that the campaign is in the position it is in now, especially after a recent high-profile news story involving Kobe beef jerky and a narrowly-missed 6 figure Kickstarter fraud apparently surfaced by the team behind this documentary.
They’re also behind the excellent interview with Zach Braff following his own controversial Kickstarter campaign. They also secured interviews with Amanda Palmer, Chris Roberts and other high-profile crowdfunders.
The good news is that (as is often the case) funding has picked up late in the game. The campaign has picked up at least $10,000 in the past 24 hours, but with $15,000 left to raise in just 16 hours the project creators have to be feeling the pressure. Could this be an instance where a single funder or the project creators themselves step in to supply the remainder of the funding? We’ll have to wait and see.
