Dear Doug, I’m not sure that insults will move people to open their wallets. The amount of options for people to spend their ‘disposable income’ is huge and in your kickstarter you fail to give people any reason why they should spend it on you/your film. You blow your own horn, but you fail to substantiate the superlatives you use to describe yourself. Why was your previous film ‘great’? Are there any reviews? Was it shown in any festivals or other places? Did it win any awards? Can we see it somewhere and maybe judge for ourselves? Furthermore you fail to tell us anything about the film you want to make except for its title. The money you aks is apparently needed to financially support you and to allow you to buy equipement. You then go on to try to elicit sympathy and pity in an attempt to bring people to fork out the cash. Your Kickstarter campaign further fails to allow anyone to give you a small amount as you only give the option for 500$ and 1000$. If you’re begging for cash, which is what you’re doing, you’re not encouraging potential backers at all, but you have the audacity to claim that people are unsupportive/ not encouraging: "Prove you're not a completely useless, unsupportive "non-community" of old cranks & send money to me for my next movie & to save my life!"
"I'm always respectful & compliment everyone who doesn't know me” vs. "if they don't care about me or my motion pictures then fuck them.” / "lame, unsupportive, non-nurturing excuse for a community” / “Almost everyone is a whiney old loser or just non-communicative & non-responsive" regards and fuck you too!
