New Zach Braff Film KickStarter Announced

In the wake of mega-projects appearing on Kickstarter, like the Double Fine game (making over $3 million) and the upcoming Veronica Mars movie (making over 5 million dollars), Zach Braff has now taken to crowd-funding website with his own film idea.

Wish I Was Here is a film similar in tone to his previous film Garden State, but rather than reflecting on his 20s, Braff decided to make a film about finding himself in his 30s. The film, written by him and his brother Adam, revolves around Aidan, a 35 year old father of two who must attempt to home-school his children all while struggling to figure out what he wants in life, reverting back to childhood fantasies of being a Space-Knight.

Braff states in the Kickstarter video that he wanted to use Kickstarter so that he would be able to have full creative control over the project, rather than producers who he refers to as “money guys.” Braff is offering several benefits like art prints, tee shirts, and online screenings of his films to his backers at even the lowest levels of donation. At the time of writing, the Kickstarter has earned just over $280,000 out of its set goal of $2 million after only being live for a few hours.  If you would like to donate to the film, click here.

As just a regular, hard-working work, often-stressing, procrastination-mastering history and journalism student, I often turn to the silver and small screens for relief, even though I'm only an average cinema-and-television loving viewer, commenting on what, and does not, makes good entertainment. I love horror everything - book, TV shows, games, movies - even though they frighten me terribly. I'm a long time believer of the old saying "When life gives you lemons, don't take life's lemons! Give the lemons back!" So, onward I go, returning lemons and logging an unhealthy amount of screen time for your enjoyment. So please be sure to read my stuff and let me know what you think, I'm alway looking to improve and be the best, most cynical critic I can be!
