Kickstarter Film Threads

Are we allowed to post about films that are in the crowd-funding stage? I know we had one on Veronica Mars, but I have not seen any other film funding projects since then.

I'm not talking about smaller short movie productions, but larger full feature films to be released in theaters (or at least on DVD).

Just curious what the rules or restrictions are.

Are we talking about raising money for these films, or just discussing them on their merits?

Re: Kickstarter Film Threads

I would think it would be fine to discuss a Kickstarter project just as long as it wasn't YOUR Kickstarter project.

Re: Kickstarter Film Threads

In Video Game Talk we have an ongoing thread for Kickstarter projects, with more notable projects getting their own thread. I think a similar approach would work in Movie Talk.

Re: Kickstarter Film Threads

We've had ones for major Kickstarters like Veronica Mars, Zach Braff, and Spike Lee.

Navinabob, if this is already an existing practice, I think it will be ok. dex14, please see Groucho's suggestion about wrapping the projects into one thread IF you guys think it's necessary.

Re: Kickstarter Film Threads

I think if it becomes a bigger practice then yea that would be a good idea. But usually only notable projects ARE being given their own threads. Nobody is really talking about smaller projects.

I just remembered there was one for Uwe Boll too.

Re: Kickstarter Film Threads

This looks ten times better than anything Michael Bay released in the past decade.

This thread is in Feedback. The discussion isn't for specific projects, just about Kickstarter threads in general.
