James Merendino returns with a long awaited sequel to the indie colt classic SLC Punk. We had this project queued up to feature it for the last week of its campaign (starts today), and they have already reached their goal! Congratulations and we are highlighting it anyway...because the perks are bad ass and creative, and shit, it is still our favorite indie film campaign this week. Donate for the cause of SLC Punk!!!
Our crowd funding campaign of the week, "The Shift" is an ambitious project that continues to tackle the aggregate shift in human philosophy and new evolution in our current transitional period in history. We love this project obviously for its content, but it is also worth noting that this crowd funding campaign is quite unique as well. It is a part of Indie Gogo's pilot program where certain campaigns can raise money without a time limit on the fundraising. It seems this program will soon be available to any project who completes its initial fundraising goal, with some minor adjustment in fees to keep campaign managers realistic with future goals.
