Kickstarting Movies: Funny Bunny

You've probably already heard about the Veronica Mars movie kickstarter, which has 5 days to go. They're trying to break the record for largest number of contributors to a kickstarter.

A much more modest movie kickstarter that I contributed to also has 5 days to go: Funny Bunny - A new feature film by Alison Bagnall. As of when I'm writing this, she's raised $42k of her $50k goal to make the film.

Alison's sister works at ITA Software, where I work, so Alison came by our office in 2011 to show her previous film The Dish & the Spoon and answer questions. Not only did the film totally charm me, but I learned that she'd made it kind of on the fly: Another film project had just fallen apart, and Alison had two actors she really wanted to do something with (Greta Gerwig and Olly Alexander) but no movie, so she collaboratively put one together with and around the two of them.

I'd love to see what she comes up with next!

Help me help her reach $50,000?
