At a time when Hollywood gives us nothing but top-notch oral discharge like Fast Five and The Green Lantern, it’s refreshing to see an auteur pursue his art with absolutely zero commercial consideration.


At a time when Hollywood gives us nothing but top-notch oral discharge like Fast Five and The Green Lantern, it’s refreshing to see an auteur pursue his art with absolutely zero commercial consideration. He’s come up with a revolutionary idea of shooting an entire feature film on something called an “iPhone” (pronounced “i-fohn”). Produced by a virtually unknown California-based electronics company, the phone apparently comes equipped with some kind of video camera. The film’s director is throwing a huge bone to this mom-and-pop operation and in true grassroots spirit, has even gone off the beaten path to find non-traditional funding.

Instead of going through a major studio (all of which were chomping at the bit to get a piece of this obvious cash-cow-to-be), he’s decided to mount a campaign on Kickstarter, which means the project is completely free from the machinations of any kind of corporate influence or association with a potentially sinister multinational conglomerate. It is untainted.

It is up to us to keep the flame of independent film-making burning bright through these dark times. They need our help and they are so very close: They’ve already raised $330 of their $40,000 goal and there’s still 11 days days left! That means they only need four people to give roughly $10,000, or even just 120,000 people to each give ยข33.333. We can do this.

    What the fuck. Who gives this guy money? Did he just ask to sit in a disused shopfront for that ‘intimate’ part? Or is that his studio? Please tell me he doesn’t have enough money to have his own studio. He wears thongs with tight jeans. Enough said.

    What I really mean to say was; If I was very wealthy I would go around, funding projects like this, making the ‘producer’ sign outrageously complex, length byzantine contracts that make no sense but buried inside them are provisions for me to be a total ass. I would turn up on set and slowly crush their ideals and dreams under my Italian wingtips. It would feel good. I would make cast members do sexual scenes with siblings as well.

    i love gimics and people who solicit money from their friends and family through a ‘fundraiser’.

    “hi guys, sorry about the mass email, but it would mean so much to me if donated some of your real job money to my new film project, check it out, it’s my dream to be acknowledged for something. Also, please forward this to everyone you know, friends family co-workers and make sure to tell them they can right it off their taxes as a donation. Sincerely, Mr. The world owes me something/I’ve had it too easy”

    fuck you

    I know some people using Kickstarter. It’s like next-level YouTube, where one’s banal video dreams become bigger and better by spending the money of friends and relatives.
