While the internet continues its post-mortem on Spike Lee’s Kickstarter numbers, there’s another director who’s jumping into the crowdfunding fray: Uwe Boll. That’s right, Uwe friggin’ Boll has turned to Kickstarter to make Postal 2, and he’s looking for $500,000. Some would say Postal is his best film, though those same people would say that the movie is also garbage. (Looks like Boll’s found a way to get around those pesky German tax reforms.)
The film has something to do with government spying and surveillance, with Boll noting both Julian Assange and Edward Snowden as inspiration. Incentives for funding include access to a PDF of the script, t-shirts, and the usual stuff. At the $7,500 donor level, you can get a speaking role in the movie. At $10,000, you are credited as an executive producer and can visit the set whenever you like.
Boll did a slightly more serious video for the Postal 2 Kickstarter which I’ve included after the cut. To check out the Kickstarter page for Postal 2, go here. What do you think of Uwe Boll turning to Kickstarter?
