Zach Braff Needs Your Help to Fund His Next Movie!

Zach Braff - Wish I Was Here - Kickstarter - SDCC - Comic-Con - HeaderZach Braff has a project on Kickstarter to make a movie called, Wish I Was Here. This is his follow up to Garden State. He didn’t want to sacrifice anything to hurt the movie doing a typical financing deal, so he turned to Kickstarter. He should be pleased with the outcome of this! Go check out his project… It’s already heading towards his target on the first day! Zach is already over one-third the way to his goal of $2,000,000.

Oh, and by the way… He’s going to be filming parts of the movie at Comic-Con!

Update: Zach found a larger venue for the screening in New York City!

Here is the last update for the VERONICA MARS Kickstarter page…

Gang,

Hard to believe, but it’s almost over. We’ve got 24 hours left until our Kickstarter campaign ends. Yesterday we got 2,400 new backers. Today, we’ve gotten 3,600. Tomorrow, we only need about 5,000 more to break the all-time record for most backers.

That’s less than 220 backers an hour. We can do this.

In other news, we may have underestimated the level of interest you’d have in the new rewards we offered this morning, since all of the SDCC and Logan packages disappeared in under 10 minutes. If you were hoping for one of those, good news: we’ll be able to offer another (final) round tomorrow.

Also, many of you asked if there was an option to get both Jason’s personalized signature and the signed poster. Good news there, too. We’ll be adding a limited number of Logan Lover’s Deluxe packages for $250, which will include both the signed cast poster and the personalized headshot from Jason. Ask and ye shall receive.

For those of you keeping score at home, that means we’ll be adding the following rewards tomorrow, April 12, at 1:00 pm EST.

COMIC CON REWARDS

  • 50 SDCC Fan Packages ($150)
  • 20 SDCC VIP Packages ($450)

PREMIERE TICKETS

  • 50 pairs of tickets to the LA Premiere ($750)
  • 50 pairs of tickets to the NYC Premiere ($750)

LOGAN LOVERS

  • 50 Logan Lover’s Packages ($150)
  • 100 Logan Lover’s Deluxe Packages ($250)

If you’re determined to get one of these, you might want to set an alarm. I don’t expect them to last long, and with the campaign ending tomorrow night, this will be your last chance.

Since I’ll be over at the Dog and Duck Pub tomorrow night, this will also be one of the last updates I send before the campaign ends. I’ve said this a lot this week, but I want to say it one more time before this ends:

Thank you. For everything.

Whether we break this final record or not, Kristen and I could not be more amazed, thrilled or grateful. We’ve always known that we have the best fans in the world. Now we’re pretty sure everyone else will know it too.

I’ll let Kristen have the last word for tonight:
— video not included here–

LoVe and Gratitude,

Rob and Kristen

Hollywood visionaries start a new Sci-Fi franchise from scratch with a little help from their fans.

Stars and producers to appear on panel at Comic-Con on Friday, July 13th from 8:30 – 9:30pm (rooms 5AB), to discuss how Kickstarter.com is instrumental in their film-making process.

Space Command, a new and original feature film series from Award-Winning writer/producer Marc Scott Zicree, Oscar and Emmy-Award Winner Doug Drexler and Digital Film Pioneer Neil Johnson and is the first-ever series to be supported by crowd-funding site Kickstarter will appear before its fans Comic-Con 2012.

At this one-of-a-kind panel Sci Fi enthusiasts and film geeks alike will have the opportunity to learn what it takes to get a film into production and how the support of a crowd-funding site like Kick Starter can help surge interest and funds. On Friday July 13 from 8:30-9:30pm their producers of Space Command will present their star-studded panel Space Command: Bold Adventures In The Far Reaches Of Space.

The panel will feature Science Fiction Legends Marc Scott Zicree (The Twilight Zone Companion, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Doug Drexler (Battlestar Galactica), Neil Johnson (Humanity’s End), Michael Reaves (Star Wars, Batman-The Animated Series), and Ian McCaig (The Avengers, Star Wars) where they will premiere original footage from the highly anticipated epic adventure series that spans 200 years of Galactic History.

The visionary team will offer fans a sneak peek at the original Character design, along with producer David Raiklen’s extended version of the existing VFX trailer.  The film and its score are inspired by heroic science fiction of the 50s.  The film is currently in pre-production where its Award Winning production team is currently crafting original space costumes and space ships. Production will take place in October 2012 and the film will be released in a multi-platform manner: DVD, Bluray, digital download with DVD and Video on Demand.

The credibility of the project itself is resulting in a great deal of support from the Hollywood Community.  Leaders in the Sci-Fi genre including Damon Lindelof  (Prometheus, Lost) Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods, Dr. Who, Coraline), Glen Mazzara (Waking Dead) , David Brin (leading author), Jane Espenson (Game of Thrones) and Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) have shown their support and have boosted the project into the mainstream media.
