Zach Braff Kickstarter: $2 Million Goal Reached!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It took only 3 days for Zach Braff's Kickstarter project to reach its $2 million goal.

After launching a Kickstarter last week to fund his new film Wish I Was Here, Braff gets to sit for 24 more days watching the till, which at the point of publishing sits at $2,224,565, continue to rise.

Is it fair for celebrities with tons of money, fame, Hollywood access, and say, a wildly successful, long-running sitcom that's currently in syndication on like 100 channels, to crowdfund their movies?

Braff was inspired by the Veronica Mars Kickstarter earlier this year to subvert the Hollywood system and make a movie by donation.

But given that Braff's first movie Garden State earned over $35 million in theaters on just a $2.5 million budget, as well as numerous award nominations, you'd think Braff would be able to get a film made within the system.

Do you think Kickstarter should be off limits to celebs? Or can Zach Braff and the like use their fame to crowdfund their projects with ease?
