Two weeks ago, I arrived abode from judging a speech communication meet, turned on my computer, together with saw that my Twitter together with Facebook feeds were overrun amongst Veronica Mars posts. I clicked on 1 of the links together with learned the. best. news. Series creator Rob Thomas (not the guy from Matchbox Twenty) had struck a bargain amongst Warner Brothers—if he could heighten $2 1000000 through a Kickstarter campaign, Warner Brothers would greenlight a VM movie.
I’m quite familiar amongst Kickstarter, equally I’ve backed 2 (failed) projects inwards the past. Here’s how it works: the creator sets a finish (in this case, $2 1000000 inwards 1 month). He or she together with thus offers “rewards” to people who back upward the projection (these people are called backers). H5N1 backer tin flame pick out how much coin to grade based on the vantage he or she wants. (A backer tin flame too grade to a greater extent than or less than the specified vantage amounts.) If the finish is met, the projection is funded. If the finish isn’t met, together with thus no 1 is out whatsoever money.
For a pair hours, I debated whether I wanted to acquire a backer. Of sort I wanted to consider the movie, but did I desire to genuinely throw simply about of my difficult earned coin behind the project? I in conclusion decided “yes” … for exclusively selfish reasons. I alive inwards small-scale town Nebraska, where chances of a Veronica Mars movie playing inwards a theatre close me are slim to none. Sure, I could await for the DVD, but did I genuinely desire to create that? No! So I’m backing the Veronica Mars movie at the $35 level, which volition acquire me a pdf of the script (don’t care), a t-shirt (kinda cool, but non necessary), together with a digital re-create of the cinema inside a few days of its theatrical release. Now that’s the form of vantage I want!
I backed the cinema when the projection was at $1.8 million. Shortly thereafter, it rolled by $2 million. Right now, amongst xvi days left, it’s at nearly $4.1 million. So it’s definitely going to happen! Yippee!!!
Thomas together with serial star Kristen Bell set together this video announcing the project. If you’re a VM fan, you lot demand to spotter this! (Just live on aware at that topographic point is simply about language, thank you lot to “Dick Casablancas” [Ryan Hansen].)
And here‘s a dandy article close the cinema … including spoilers! (For something similar this, I desire all the spoilers!)
