Everyone's feeling the recession!
Director David Lynch is turning to "crowd-funding" for his latest film, a documentary about his life and work. He is asking fans to donate $50 as a gift to finance the film.
Producer Jon Nguyen explains:
"A film can take a long time to finance so we had this crowd-funding idea. We went to David Lynch for his seal of approval and he was up for it. He ended up making an abstract self-portrait and we're going to give an original print of it to anyone who chooses to donate $50 towards the film, or a T-shirt featuring the print. We hope to raise part of the money in this way."
The film, Lynch Three, will be the third documentary following Lynch's career and donating fans will also get the chance to offer their input about what they want to see in the film. Nguyen continues:
"Not only are we looking for financial support, but we're also very interested in connecting with his fans for feedback and input. There are so many questions that we would like to ask David and building a network of his fans enables us to reach out to them and hear what his fans would like to ask him if they could hold the camera."
Will U be forking over 50 bucks for Mr. Lynch?
