„Wish I Was Here“ – Zach Braff goes Kickstarter
Bevor ich endgültig entscheide wieviel ich Zach Braff für seinen neuen Film spende, haue ich noch schnell diesen Beitrag raus.
I was about to sign a typical financing deal in order to get the money to make „Wish I Was Here,“ my follow up to “Garden State.” It would have involved making a lot of sacrifices I think would have ultimately hurt the film. I’ve been a backer for several projects on Kickstarter and thought the concept was fascinating and revolutionary for artists and innovators of all kinds. But I didn’t imagine it could work on larger-scale projects. I was wrong.
After I saw the incredible way “Veronica Mars” fans rallied around Kristen Bell and her show’s creator Rob Thomas, I couldn’t help but think (like I’m sure so many other independent filmmakers did) maybe there is a new way to finance smaller, personal films that didn’t involve signing away all your artistic control.
Financing an independent film the traditional way often means having to give away your right to “the final cut,” casting choices, location choices and cutting down your script to make it shoot-able on the cheapest budget possible.
In der Zeit, in der ich die erste Zeile geschrieben und das Zitat einfügte, kamen 8.000 Dollar hinzu.
Geht gut ab..!
Wenn ich doch nur 10.000 Dollar hätte…
