Zach Braff is looking to direct and star in a new movie and he needs your help.
Zach has created a Kickstarter for his new film, ‘Wish I Was Here,’ and he is looking for fans that are willing to donate $2 million to produce his new film. Check out his pitch!
On his Kickstarter profile, Zach was able to reveal some of the plot for the film:
“Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by me), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid.
When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them.
The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.
As I am writing this, the Kickstarter has almost reached $1 million and it has only been up for a day! Insane!
People have been coming forward saying that Zach Braff already is fairly well-off financially, so he should pay for the film himself and that asking for his fans to donate is selfish. I can understand where these people are coming from, but I honestly do not see it that way and I am excited for this film.
Do you think Zach Braff should have just funded the film himself?
