6 Reasons Why Zach Braff Shouldn't Be On Kickstarter
2. He Had Already Been Offered Funding
If Braffs film was a well-established franchise with a wide fanbase that really didnt have any other hope of financial backing like the Veronica Mars film was, the use of Kickstarter might be acceptable. Wish I Was Here does not fit that category. Its a quirky indie film that Braff is directing and starring in. And at least one studio had already seen its potential and agreed to front the money that Braff was after. But because he worried that the lack of creative control hed have would negatively affect the film and he wouldnt be given the films final cut, he turned them down. Like Ive said before, if it comes to a point where you have to compromise in order to make your film, knuckle under and make the best of it. Or alternatively, find a studio that will give you the control you want or look for different ways of funding that arent Kickstarter.
