Most of us have now at least heard about Kickstarter, an innovative way to crowd-fund arts projects: ask publicly for pledges (kinda like NPR does) and, if enough people are interested in your project and they pledge enough money to meet the stated goal before the deadline - Viola! - cash for creation!  The tricky part is that a goal has to be fully funded if the project is to get any money.  So The Word has got to Get Out.

A knuckle-biter.

Well, that friend I told y'all about raising funds for a short film Perfectly Normal... made his $ 20,000 goal!  (More HERE.)

So... Kickstarter works.  At least some of the time.  Good to know.
