If you thought Kickstarters & Indiegogo fundraising campaigns were only for students, guess again. David Fincher, Eric Powell and Blur Studios created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their new comic book-turned-animated movie, The Goon. Because Hollywood isn't too keen on putting money on original ideas these days, it appears they need some help funding a feature-length story reel based on Powell's script in order to persuade Hollywood to create this film. The campaign states, "Because this movie isn't a sequel or filled with dancing animals we'll need more to bust open the gates." Check out their Kickstarter campaign here.
So far the campaign seems pretty successful. Hopefully they achieve their goal!
