Good question!

 

Even so, there is a more fundamental question: Can Kickstarter serve as a platform for celebrities looking to raise six- or seven figures without somehow intimidating or deflecting attention from aspiring artists and inventors with more modest ambitions who might otherwise use the service? As it turns out, it's Strickler, the Kickstarter co-founder, who best expressed this concern in an interview with Fast Company earlier this year.

 

"The thing is, if Michael Bay came along and wanted to do a Kickstarter we'd probably tell him, please don't," Strickler said at the time.

Hopefully Kickstarter will not go the way of eBay, completely forsaking the little guy in favor of major players.

Thought I'd put a plug in for my local art house cinema looking to convert to digital.

Good luck Cam.  I have seen a number of these and haven't felt compelled to take part.  I believe that efforts which are highly location specific have a very tough road ahead.

They aren't doing too badly with 19 days left, though their support may have plateaued. There's potential, being in a college town and being just off campus, they can tap into some the alumni nostalgia for the place.

You gotta appreciate a guy who actually listens to the comments and subtly modifies his stance for the stronger, without either backing down or doubling down.

In general I don't get hung up on the costs of rewards in deciding which projects to back.  I want to support this one.  But a $30 minimum to get the digital download of the film is stupid.
