KICKSTARTER INVESTORS SEEM HAPPY WITH ZACH BRAFF MOVIE “WISH I WAS HERE”

wish-i-was-here-zac#17Fcut

Zach Braff finished that movie he made with Kickstarter money and took it to Sundance. A friend of ours had donated to his project even though we asked “Why are you sending money to a wealthy actor?” She believed in his talent and enjoyed receiving emails about his progress. The movie, titled “Wish I Was Here,” is a dramatic family comedy written by Zach and his brother as a follow-up to ”Garden State.” Braff is the leading man and Kate Hudson plays his wife, with Mandy Patinkin as his father. Braff turned down traditional financing in favor of Kickstarter to maintain creative control and film at his own pace. When the movie screened at Sundance, some critics called it rather “self indulgent”, but Braff’s fans laughed and cried and LOVED it, and gave him a standing ovation.

    What’s the difference between giving your money to a wealthy actor for their film project and giving money to a wealthy company so you can watch a movie? IMO, Not Much. Yet the former is supposed to be a bad thing, and the latter is socially acceptable. In the end, these entertainers get paid by a public willing to pay for this entertainment. I’d rather the entertainers get paid without a cut taken by the movie studios.
