It was just three days and the Kickstarter project of Zack Braff reached the 2 million dollar goal.
He had launched the Kickstarter in the last week on Wednesday to make funds for his film titled Wish I Was Here. Now, the question is whether the celebrities having tons of wealth, fame, access to Hollywood, and also a crazily running sitcom which is presently in syndication on about a hundred channels, should go crowd funding for their movies!
The system of making a film by donation has started earlier this year with the Kickstarter to Veronica Mars. This system, though it compromises with and undermines the Hollywood ethics and principles, has helped Zach Braff to reach his two million dollar goal in real short time.
The movie maker has explained the reasons behind his going the Kickstarter way for hisnew film in the interview with THR or The Hollywood Reporter. Braff said that what he wanted was to have control over some of the aspects of his movie. He has said in the same interview that though financing actually works for certain movies, he would consider an idea of giving away the final cut to someone, devoid of sense, in matters of such small personal art films.
