Maybe, but I wasn't any more likely to back the random guy before this, and I don't think anyone else is either.

If anything, I'm in the "this helps all of kickstarter" boat. Big projects like...

If you're just testing software, you can download comp/proof versions from pretty much any site. They're low-res an watermarked, but it let's you try it out in your project.

I can appreciate the time and costs to put on a festival, but man, when you're a no-name festival that's pretty ludicrous to charge that, especially for a music video when they can run 15-20 of them...

Camera Contest
