Could Kickstarter One Day Completely Oust Hollywood? [Video]

There’s been something of an uproar lately about Kickstarter. Specifically, folks have been questioning the meaning of the immensely successful Veronica Mars movie campaign. Does this mean we can use Kickstarter to fund whatever we want? Can we cut out Hollywood entirely? On the negative side of things, people have asked whether this is a good road to go down at all. In essence, Hollywood could hold franchises hostage until people give them enough money. The latest video from PBS Idea Channel explores this and more.

Ultimately, Mike Rugnetta doesn’t come down on one side or the other really so much as he talks about the potential of all of it. The biggest problem, of course, is that even the most successful of Kickstarter campaigns barely scratch the funds required for a big budget film.
