“Filmmaking is a visual medium. Is it a gimmick that I care about aesthetics in a visual medium? I think a well-shot film looks beautiful. I think well shot digital looks adequate. It’s simply a preference.

Truth be told, I’ve always thought the idea of micro-filmmaking was something of a gimmick. How little someone spends on a project doesn’t interest me. Is The Blair Witch Project more enjoyable knowing they spent such a small amount? Should I not support the Batman movies because the budgets are excessive? I just don’t think it’s that important.

The great thing about Kickstarter is that it allows people to support the projects they love. No one is demanding money. I certainly don’t feel entitled to it. If the idea of shooting on film offends you then don’t donate. There are about a billion digital Kickstarter projects more suited to your tastes. »
