Gör som jag och ge ditt stöd till Bret Easton Ellis nya film The Canyons.

Regissören Paul Schrader och manusförfattaren Breat Easton Ellis förstår verkligen vitsen av att komma nära sina tidigare fans för att kunna skapa nya projekt och finna en ny publik. Genom att delvis finansiera sin film via så kallad crowdfunding får de nödvändiga pengar för att inte vara allt för styrda av stora studios i avseende filmens utformande. Kickstarter låter dig komma närmare än någonsin tidigare. Detta är de olika nivåerna och vad de innebär:
