This is so clever and rather worrying at the same time. In the original Indiegogo campaign, the filmmakers made $77,000 and ran away with the money, spending it on the high life. People were outraged, rightly so, and then the filmmakers said “It is a movie about not making a movie,”. The trailer is at this link where you can find more details about this very clever plan and the film which will be released this month.
Three filmmakers (Aaron, Vinny and Cooper) are dead broke and ready to give up on their pursuit of success in the movie business. Desperate to keep the dream alive, they turn to crowdfunding for their first feature film and raise $75,000 dollars. However, they are overtaken by greed and instead blow the money on frivolous luxuries. Now they must face the consequences, including some shady acquaintances interested in their fortune, and an onslaught of angry donors who have been deceived.
