Members of Congress Ander Crenshaw (FL), Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Debbie Dingell (MI) met with celebrities Tim Daly, Constance Zimmer, Gabourey Sidibe among others to kick-off the White House Correspondence Dinner weekend festivities with a benefit dinner Supper Suite by STK, a local D.C. hotspot, after a busy day on Capitol Hill spent advocating to raise awareness with the hope of continued funding to support the arts in America.
The Creative Coalition is a nonpartisan non-profit charity made up of the arts and entertainment community dedicated to advocating on behalf of the importance of keeping the arts in our schools to enrich the lives of children across America.
As a fan of the Veronica Mars TV series, I think Rob Thomas – and his 91+ thousands of Kickstarter financiers – have pulled something almost as miraculous as raising 5.7 million dollars through crowdfunding – he’s made a movie continuation of Veronica Mars’ story that will please fans and newcomers about equally.
The movie that is not just back by popular demand, but because of crowdfunding, Veronica Mars, will see its trailer preiere on E! News, tonight at 7 & 11:30/6 & 10:30C. So, set your DVRs, Marshmallows!
As a backer of the Veronica Mars movie, I have to say that today’s Kickstarter update caught me a bit off-guard – new footage! It would appear that the Logan-Veronica-Piz triangle still has some serious heat to it.
UPDATE: The Veronica Mars Movie Project has met its goal less than twelve hours after its Kickstarter campaign began. As I write this, it has reached $2,092,937. Looks like we’ll be seeing a Veronica Mars movie in 2014!
Earlier: Fans of cult fave TV series Veronicas Mars will be pleased (but not astonished) to learn that Veronica Mars The Movie is an official Kickstarter project. Series creator Rob Thomas has put together a plan to persuade Warner Brothers to make the movie – by crowd sourcing it. Check out the pitch trailer here and visit the Veronica Mars The Movie Project page at:
The goal is to reach a minimum two million dollar budget in thirty days. The Kickstarter campaign has only just begun – and with thirty days to go, sits just over the halfway mark (seriously – it was at $1,018,420 when I wrote this).
