Us guys in the comics, animation industry are watching our colleagues raise insane amounts of money using crowdfunding. In this case these guys wanted to produce playing cards with zombies on them. They originally wanted like $1,000 but they raised over $39,000!
This isn't unusual nowadays. I've got pals who have raised millions of dollars doing crowdfunding but they're video game producers. Every day we get the latest reports and what's good is that these funding campaigns are putting people to work who would otherwise be broke.
Can't wait for my rounds of crowdfunding soon. I'm sure IMers will be on the bandwagon raising money to produce more products.
