Veronica Mars Kickstarter's Fastest $5m Crowdfunded film project, beats $2m target. | DSLR video and Photography | Scoop.it
The Veronica Mars Movie by Rob Thomas is the fastest crowd funded $5m Kickstarter beating its $2m target with 90,000 plus backers from 21 countries.
UnitedByPhotography's insight:

The Veronica Mars Movie Project by Rob Thomas surpassed target funding of $2m dollars with six hours to spare,and raised over $5m in the process.

 

Raising such money maybe great but will the backers want their money back if the project fails to deliver investment promise of a great film?
