Crowd-funding can be a hot button issue with a lot of people. Some favor the idea, and others staunchly oppose it. The beauty of the concept, though, lies in you, the potential consumer, taking on the role of judge, jury, and – if necessary – executioner of a project’s life. With that said, a “direct sequel” to the cult-classic Tim Ritter film “Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness” has just started an Indiegogo campaign with a set goal of just $8,500, which actually sounds like a pretty high budget for a Tim Ritter film.
Set to co-direct and star in the film is Scott Tepperman (Syfy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters International”, “Don’t Look in the Basement 2″). I had the opportunity to speak with Tepperman at the Monsterama horror con earlier this month, and from my brief exchange with him, he seemed enthusiastic and very passionate about not only this project, but the genre as a whole.
See the interview with him below at the 4:32 mark:
Regardless of whether you love or loathe the idea of crowd-funding (or are just somewhere in between), I feel we should just respect the efforts being made by people to do what they love, because there’s always a risk of failure.
