LemSkroob: MrEricSir: LemSkroob: Bit of a double-dip i guess. They only way it would make sense i guess would be if giving to Kickstarter was the same as pre-ordering a copy of the DVD. If you dont get a full copy of the movie, its a loss for you.There's a little more to it than that. If it's a project you personally want to see made, there's the game theory aspect to it as well -- can you rely on others to fund it? That said, most of these crowdfunded project give you a copy if you donate over a certain funding level. For Veronica Mars, anyone who kicked in over $35 gets a copy of the film.Which is pretty much buying a DVD copy twice.Make it a $19.95 for a physical DVD when it comes out, and then i would bite. Like i had said, just make it a pre-order system. Paying more for something that is known to have a true value that is lower is just silly.
alwaysjaded: Another precedent that will be set is the amount of whining of fan boys if this movie isn't one of the greatest films ever made. Considering the amount of righteous outrage you see when a nostalgia trip type movie doesn't measure up to expectations for a ticket price of $8-12, but when fans are shelling out 10 grand? Some pharmaceutical company is going to get rich inventing a cream needed to soothe those ruffled feathers.Look at what happened with Serenity.
jake_lex: I never saw Firefly as a show that was going to be able to go 100+ episodes without getting lame, anyway
Ennuipoet: I like reading Joss Whedon's reactions to this. On the one hand he's a booster, on the other you can hear the hesitation in his tone about revisiting Firefly. I can sympathize, as much as I love Firefly I respect the desire to move forward and not be shackled to previous projects. It's like he balancing on a razor blade trying to keep the fans happy while at the same time telling them it ain't gonna happen.
FirstNationalBastard: thamike: A complete list of associate producer credits is available upon request.Selling associate producer credits? That's an insult to the thousands of people who have sucked a dick over the years to get an associate producer credit.
