Disclaimer from Author: I haven’t donated to Zach Braff’s Kickstarter. I don’t remember very much about Garden State but I have enjoyed Scrubs. My interest in this does not go beyond the mildly curious.
Zach Braff’s Kickstarter for his new film Wish I Was Here has now hit its $2 million goal. Pretty impressive stuff for four days of fundraising. A four-day bake sale would have just given him a handful of gold coins and indigestion.
But to purists, windbags and the genuinely affronted, the idea of Braff making a bit of extra coin from the hands of his fans is outrageous. Never mind that that is what happens when you buy Scrubs on DVD or purchase the Garden State soundtrack to teach your friends about The Shins. At least he’s using it on making a new film rather than to fund a cocaine habit.
