Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

I'm just saying it has the potential to change how things get done in Hollywood, and not necessarily for the best for everyone. Kickstarter is a great tool for up and coming directors, producers, and writers and having a major studio use it for their own means - and thereby possibly setting the precedent - endangers the unique advantage Kickstarter provides for the struggling artists (myself included).
People are going to buy into whatever appeals to them, whether it's from established showrunners like Rob Thomas or an indie director making his or her first film. Even if we do see Bruckheimer Films use a Kickstarter for their next film (highly unlikely), I really don't think that would be directly pulling potential funding for the indie guy/girl as you're talking about two vastly different audiences and letting people pick what appeals to them. It's not like someone donating $5 to Bruckheimer is somehow withdrawing that funding from an indie director.
