Yesterday the filmmakers behind a new documentary called Kickstarted, all about Kickstarter and the so-called crowdfunding movement, released a clip of actor/writer/director Zach Braff explaining the motivations behind his successful but somewhat troublesome Kickstarter campaign. The interview doesn't really do much to win me over to the celebrity Kickstarter cause, especially when Braff says that he would love to give his contributors some share in the profits, but that he can't because it's not currently legal. But that's coming soon, he thinks. Well why not wait then? I don't know. I'm decidedly biased about this. Watch and conclude for yourself. One thing I think we can all agree on is that one should probably clean oneself up a bit more when being interviewed for a documentary.
