No, somebody's been on Kickstarter for longer than a day.

I don't know why, but I can't stop watching this.

I'm hoping they get to their goal before I go to bed tonight. Pretty sure they will.
127K to go.

If Kickstarter is such a terrible gamble, why are you still there?

Certainly none of the intelligent members here at TCF would be so frivolous as to waste their valuable time at such a worthless web site.

I'm sure you're right. There will never be enough suckers (nearly 32,000) to reach the $2 million mark.

What's that you say? $2 million at 5:54 pm PDT on Day One? Impossible! Just a rumor, I'm sure.

WTF are you taking about, Wil? I'm giving my opinion as to why this particular kickstarter is risky IMO. Where did I ever say it wouldn't get backed? It was a no-brainer considering the popularity of VM. And based on how some RPGs get thousands and thousands in a day, I'm not surprised by this outcome in the least. It'll probably hit $3MM in another day.

And I've backed 16 other kickstarters (see, I'm the one on KS longer than a day!!!) and have a perfect hit rate so far. Of the projects funded, two have shipped and I've been pleased with the results. Some offer amazing ROI and others are pretty ludicrous. I love the idea and hope it thrives. Just didn't think this one was worth my cash with so many potential pitfalls. But hey, continue your snark if it pleases you.

We'll have to keep checking to see if they add new rewards in order to get to $3 million or $4 million.

But what if ...? Or what if ...?

Nothing wrong with being a naysayer, bless your heart, have at it.

No such thing as a sure thing. Except this, from hour one. If they want to let the contributions run, this movie could even wind up with a real budget.

This Kickstarter is definitely a game changer for the entertainment industry. Something like this can't be ignored.

There sure isn't. Just look at the Tony Harris ones or the recent Sullivan's Sluggers GN KS where the creator "miscalculated" the costs for international shipping, even though he received $90,000 over his goal, and all the poor saps overseas will probably never get what they paid for.

Everything's a gamble but it can be a fun gamble with a great prize at the end... which I hope this movie becomes.

Also, why don't backers get to participate in the profits of the film, if there are any? If I'm paying $35 for a DVD, I would want some sort of prorated share of the gross until I earn back my pledge minus the $10 it would cost to buy the film on my own.

This is all too risky for me to back as there's been plenty of smaller scale kickstarters that have gone sideways and people out their pledges.
Eh, if I didn't spend the $50 here, I'd spend it on something just as frivolously entertainment related this month. A new video/computer game, going to a basketball/baseball game, etc. It was in my budget for discretionary spending, so if it works out, I'll have a VM movie to look forward to next year. If not, well it's not as if it would have been spent on anything much more worthwhile.

Still going strong. Now $2.3 million.

I don't think it's going to slow down until 2 a.m. EDT, when most everybody in the USA will be asleep.

Just wait until the last hours. Much like eBay, KS goes ape in the final ticks... especially if there are added stretch goals that are too good to pass up.

Oh my, this is awesome. Kristen Bell and VM creator Rob Thomas are doing a Kickstarter campaign to help finance a VM theatrical move. If they hit their goal, Warner Brothers has agreed to put the movie into production and distribute it.

From ew.com:

I am so in. Here's the Kickstarter page:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...oject?ref=live

Let's make this happen, Veronica Mars fans!
Lol.

I should have figured this had its own thread. Oh well. I did post in the other thread too. You can never have too much VERONICA MARS!!!!

What a great day. I loved that video. I can't wait.

When is Kristen due? Internet says "late Spring". But they are filming June/July 2013...?

I just need her and Logan together and it's worth it.

Boo. I never accepted Veronica and Logan. Of course I never accepted Buffy and Spike either.
