It's surprising that he's gotten so much exposure (HuffPo, Chicago Reader, etc.) and still is so far
He's got a guy called Lucas McNelly working on his project. Lucas did a project (soon to be documentary) called A Year Without Rent, where he travelled around the US (and other countries) working, for free, on different independent film sets. He crowdfunded $20,000 to pay for gas and then lived off peoples' couches and craft services. Anyhow, he now does independent crowd funding consulting and they've done a great job at getting this project into mainstream media outlets.
But $100,000 is a massive ask. They raised over $10,000 yesterday and, though that's massive, it's still nowhere near enough for this project.
