Now they're seeking a little over $20,000 to pay Fox for use of photos in their documentary

One of the photos in question:

From wiki:   "People cannot invest in Kickstarter projects to make money. They can only back projects in exchange for a tangible reward or one-of-a-kind experience, like a personal note of thanks, custom T-shirts, dinner with an author, or initial production run of a new product."

Let me see if I understand -- people farking do this?

They also usually get the product in question. So in this case they would get a copy of the movie plus a reward. It's like the little extras you sometimes get for pre-purchasing a movie or game. Except that the project could fail in which case you get nothing.

Well, if the project fails to meet its goal, you get refunded. I'm not aware of anybody not getting what they pledged for (although sometimes that stuff happens slowly due to volume, like with the Order of the Stick reprint).

It's an awesome system. It gets around some of the middle-management stonewalling from publishers, tv networks and video game developers.

I just blue myself.

That said, -100 points for style on that documentary trailer. You didn't end with "COME ON!"? *Really*?

GQ: So there are stories in the episodes that won't resolve until the movie?

Jason Bateman:
There are many, many questions that these episodes ask that only the movie will answer. And there are many stories where the loop is closed inside the episodes. But the overall story, the bigger story, once you see the movie you will see that "oh, this story started with those fourteen episodes," because the action in these fourteen episodes happens simultaneously. Each character has their own episode. There's a Michael episode, a Gob episode, a Lindsay episode, a Maeby episode. And the action across the episodes is happening simultaneously. If I'm driving down the street in my episode and Gob's going down the sidewalk on his Segway, you could stop my episode, go into his episode, and follow him and see where he's going.

It's not exactly like a Choose Your Own Adventure type of thing, but Mitch has written these episodes exclusively for the distribution platform and format of Netflix, knowing that they were all going to be released, like an album, on the same day. So certain clues are revealed to you based on the order in which you watch them. There will be an order that is suggested, but because part of the fun of what he does is so dense and multilayered-I mean, if you could see the writers' room before we started shooting-the cards and literally the strings of yarn, different colored characters where plotlines and index cards are matched to this one, and then there's an entire other room that is the movie. It looks like A Beautiful Mind.

/if Netflix manages to *not* crash, I will be amazed
