      I agree about the prizes being to expensive.... I had a great deal more I wanted to add but I think my comment was censored so maybe I'll add it it parts rather then 1 long comment

      I for one think the rewards are way too expensive and another problem is that most of them does not ship worldwide. If only they were to do an effort to make the DVDs and digital downloads available worldwide... You can not do a Kickstarter project simply basing in the Veronica Mars movie project, which was an exception; it will not happen to every Kickstarter project. You have to think and be smart, this is not a franchise and not a follow up to a cult tv series either. I did plege and I hope it gets the funds that it needs, but the creators have to figure out a better way for it to be done and stop asking too much from Kickstarter donators. You were clearly expecting too much when creating this project, and if you don't low down those you might just not get it done.

      You also might want to consider doing a Reddit AMA. I have seen past Kickstarter projects get a pretty big bump from doing those.

      Kicktraq has this project trending toward $234,000 :( There is still time to reach 2 mil and we know it can be done. MJH should try a live twitter chat. We can learn more about the project and possibly get it to trend. Rob and KB had success when they did their chat. It also helped that VM project had several cast members tweeting.

      Since there isn't a cast, I would love to know who she is considering for each role. I'm sure they have different actors in mind. I would love to see her do another movie with Adrian Grenier. A few of my other suggestions would be Nico Tortorella(The Following), Shiloh Fernandez, Brandon Barash, Josh Henderson, or Ian Somerhalder. Lesser known actors, but they would most likely be willing to do a low budget film.

      @Robert You're right, Veronica Mars has a built in fanbase, an unknown movie doesn't. MJH needs to create more videos about the project, more updates, and more pledges. If the digital copy was available outside of America it would help. People won't pledge for a movie they can't see :(

      With that being said, I wish her the best of luck, and I hope it picks up soon.

      I think part of the issue is that this is a KS for a person, rather than a known series or known movie franchise. We might like MJH but we currently know very little about the project, which when its a known franchise isn't such an issue as you know you'll get more of what you loved previously.

      People would, likely, stump up for a new Dawsons Creek but probably not a new James Van Der Beek vehicle.

    7. Trina Balston on

      hmmm... wonder when the rewards for non us backers are going to be released... or maybe even the substitute fo the dvd... I'm just waiting to up my bid once I get news of this :) ps. I think MellyJHart can do any role she wants :)

      Friederike, it's hard to say, the numbers here seem way too low. She is getting some exposure via the news sites, that's where I heard about it from, but it does seem like the numbers are quite low.

      I'd be very disappointed if this is the result of people not thinking that she can stretch out of the previous very clean roles.

    9. Friederike M. on

      This is One of the moments i can't understand kickstarter... Why does MJH not receive any attention close to VM? Perhaps i am more aware of her in Germany since the witch series were shown here more often than VM. Feel a little bit sad of the slow process of this project. Well, it is quite some time to go, best wishes to you, Melissa! I will substantially raise my pledge if needed at the end...:)

      I was going to ask if it was possible to get Clarissa released on DVD, but it appears that most of the shows from Nick of that era are now, finally, available on DVD.

      It's kind of interesting to see things going back to their roots a bit in turns of expanding horizons.

      @James I agree with Robert. You should receive everything from the lower tiers, but it only lists the DVD & script.

    12. tarasis on

      @James normally you also receive the rewards from lower tiers but yes the wording suggests only DVD & script, rather than script, t-shirt, digital download and DVD which it should be.

      I'm a big fan of Melissa Joan Heart! Very happy to back this project! I hope it gets the funding it needs so it can be made! Good luck!!!! :-)

      I'm in, women don't get the sort of roles that they really ought to. I'm glad they had the sense to at least mention Clarissa, just because there's probably a fair number of folks that remember that show fondly. Not that Sabrina was a bad show.

    16. James Walsh on

      ok so I have a question because its not very clear on the rewards list. If I pledge $50 do I only get a hard copy of the DVD and not the digital version or do you get both?

    17. Friederike M. on

      I just found out about this project and love the idea of the film!

    18. tarasis on

      @James Certainly DVD/Blu-Ray is about protecting income from other markets & controlling when the release is (why might we go see X in Germany at the cinema, 4 months after the DVD release in the US, if we can simply buy it.

      With digital stuff part of it comes down to the fear it will be distributed all over the net (it will likely happen regardless, by simply ripping the disc), the bandwidth costs of downloading (if handling it themselves), the markets that their partner is in (if they are having someone else distribute it, other than iTunes most aren't in many markets) and then you have the question of what format to use (iTunes on Win & Mac uses m4v, independent releases often use MKV or mp4 as they are universally playable; likewise pirate sites use them)

    19. James Walsh on

      Night all see you in the morning when this thing hits $15k

    20. James Walsh on

      I am also a bit curious why a digital download can't be made to send anywhere. I'm im NY so it's no big for me but I think you'll do better with an extended reach.

    21. tarasis on

      I'm curious to learn more about this project (I'm hat tipping for a $1 ATM) and to ask that you try and work magic to include digital downloads for outside of the US of A. (VM managed it) Be it that you self host the videos yourself. Also you could make the DVDs region free (0) and then it could be shipped anywhere.

      Basically buck the normalcy of Hollywood: using digital rights management (many game KS are shipping DRM free) and region locking DVD/Blu-Ray. (Likewise other projects are doing this)

      Your known globally (where hasn't Sabrina been shown?) and will have people from all over willing to back this and want to see the finished movie.

    22. James Walsh on

      Hey all, I been a MJH fan for years (since her Clarrisa day's) and also as a fellow Veronica Mars fan I was happy to donate what I could to show support for this cause and a Thanks to MJH for mentioning mine which is now in our final hours and we are so hoping to break the all time Kickstarter record for most backers to a project. We are just a little less then 5,000 backers short of that record and have less then 22 hours to do it. I'm helping you guys since you helped us although we still need more help its nice to know word has spread even to Hollywood. Keep the good word and work spreading.

      Happy to back this project! Best of luck!

    24. Marshal Knight on

      Hope this gets enough media attention, as that is what greatly helped out the Veronica Mars movie. The moment the news hit Ew.com, the money flowed in, and I think the same would happen for this film! Anyways, I donated, can't wait for this to get funded and for the film to be made, and maybe this will open up new doors (like a Sabrina movie! Though it is the complete opposite of this film...)

      Melissa Joan Hart is adorable, and I happen to have the same last name as the director - how could I not back this? Best of luck to you on this project!
