Director Spike Lee – who owns insanely awesome New York Knicks courtside seats, and has another major motion picture arriving later this year (Oldboy on October 25) – grovels and begs fans to donate money via Kickstarter for his next feature project, which sounds like it has horror elements. He laments on the good old days of filmmaking, basically stating that the only way he can make film truly in “his” vision is for you to pay for it – not by selling his courtside Knicks seats or anything like that, of course…
He’d be eternally grateful if you help him achieve his lifelong dream, which can only happen if he raises a measly $1.25 million in funds. His begging and groveling hit me right in the heart, as I too, want Spike Lee to be happy, and to have a very successful and fruitful life. He deserves it. (Just to be extra clear…I’m being extremely sarcastic.)
If you’re dying to help his cause, which is straight from the heart, the project will focus on human beings who are addicted to blood, as Variety first reported. “Funny, sexy, and bloody (and it’s not “Blacula”),” he added.
“Do you wish to see Human Beings dealing with each other on a Human Level?” he asked. “How many more explosions with Ear splitting Sound Effects can you take?”
His campaign video is below, and 100% worthy of your time. It’s magical to watch someone of Lee’s stature beg like he hasn’t had anything to eat in weeks…
