Just came across The Canyons, a contemporary thriller written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) and directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver).
The project is up at kickstarter and if you’re willing to help fund it (4 days remaining as of today), they’re offering some interesting rewards.
While $25 will only get you the DVD as well as two printed posters of the movie, for $499 or more you can have a 20 minute Skype session with Bret or Paul (10 out of 10 places still available on that one).
But why Skype with Bret when for $3000 or more you can train with him and his celebrity coach for a whole week – every workout being 3 hours? Access to supplements included!
Best reward? 5 people took the 5 places available and put down $5000 to have Bret read their novel and post his review on an international blog or website. Wow.
If your book is good, that’s $5000 well-spent in marketing. I assume he might tweet about it, as well, to his 288k followers…
