Spike Lee has reached out to Kickstarter to raise $1.25 million for his next feature - about “human beings who are addicted to blood. The launch of the campaign gives Lee the chance to be clear about the changes that have come to film-making:
The only way to ensure as an independent filmmaker that your vision is on the screen is when you bring the money to the table. My first feature film was She’s Gotta Have It, shot it in the summer of 1985, 12 days, two six-day weeks, for $175,000. But now, that can’t work.
Do you wish to see Human Beings dealing with each other on a Human Level? How many more explosions with Ear splitting Sound Effects can you take? C’mon People, please get behind this Joint.
