Will Kickstarter Replace Hollywood? | Idea Channel | PBS Digital Studios

You may have heard about the recent overwhelming success of the Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter, or you might be a “Marshmallow” yourself and have contributed. This is a big moment for fan communities, with Kickstarter giving them the opportunity to challenge the closed gates of the Hollywood system. Although it’s funding is nowhere NEAR the amount Hollywood invests in moviemaking each year, crowdfunding is a way better indicator of what the audience wants to see, the one area Hollywood has failed in time and time again.
