Most Buzzed-About Kickstarter Campaigns

Last week, the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter announced the launch of its 100,000th campaign, having collectively raised a total of $631 million in its three years in operation. Here are some of the most notable projects funded through the site:

  • The Slightly Younger Justice League: This fan-financed comic imagines the members of the JLA as if they were six months younger than they appear in mainstream adventures
  • Miss Doubtfire: In this prequel, we discover that Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) spent time earlier in his life masquerading as a young, single Euphegenia Doubtfire
  • Your Friend’s Piece-Of-Shit Documentary: Oh, God, the description uses the words “generational” and “ethno-biography.” This is going to be horrible
  • Big Table Web Series: A couple friends have some great sketches for a boardroom-based web series and they just need $10,000 for a big enough table to do it all
  • Mars Needs Moms: For a $14.99 donation, supporters will receive a DVD of the film
  • 1987 Family Reunion: The Andersons want to finally get around to digitizing the tapes and are willing to pay whatever it takes to get the time and date off the bottom right-hand portion of the screen
  • Myraxa #239: The pharmaceutical drug development project raised over $50,000 in funding from enthusiastic medication fans
  • Zach Bruff’s Film: By pure coincidence, this University of Michigan film student raised $900,000 of his $800 goal
