One of my favourite British authors, Iain Rob Wright, has a book that might, just maybe, if they can raise enough money, be made into a movie. The book is an apocalyptic horror called The Final Winter and the money for the project is being raised on Kickstarter. It seems a lot of great projects are being funded through crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Have you ever funded a project? Donated even a dollar? If so, did the project ever get made and did you like the end result?
The cool thing about these types of campaigns is that no money is removed from your account until the project is about to begin or in some cases as they hit certain landmarks in the projects completion
I have never funded a project. I think The Final Winter might become my first. I love the idea of crowdfunding though. If you find something cool, toss a dollar at it, it's your way of endorsing the creation of things you love. I like that.
