‘Veronica Mars’ Kickstarter Reaches $2 Million 

Friday March 15, 2013 -- No doubt by now you know that tv producer Rob Thomas made history this week by raising over $2 million in only one day on Kickstarter for a Veronica Mars feature film.

Naturally Thomas had some advantages: primarily a huge tv show audience with a hunger for more, the star of the show promoting the effort, and the cooperation of Warner Brothers who offered legal and distribution assistance.

Nevertheless, it does prove that it can be done.  Couple that with robust acquisitions at Sundance this year, and the re-emergance of Picturehouse, and you have a very optimistic landscape for indie films.

There will always be risk in the film business, but this year indie producers have a few extra advantages in their pockets that they didn't have in the last few years.

Keeping an open mind, and using all available assets has never been more important than it is today.

When you are ready to work with someone with an open mind, who will help you develop your own competitive advantages, please get in touch with me.  

Let's make it happen!
