Kickstarter was created as a way for creative people with big ideas but not a lot of funds to generate financing on their intended projects. It’s been a major asset for a number of different projects, including independent films that may have never had a chance to be made and seen otherwise.

Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell turned to Kickstarter to get Veronica Mars fans to put the down payment on a big-screen adaptation of their beloved TV mystery series, then Zach Braff announced a spiritual sequel to Garden State that he also wants to pay for with this new-fangled model.
