Spike Lee’s Kickstarter Film, Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus, Gets New Trailer
Last summer, Spike Lee started a Kickstarter campaign in order to have his fans fund his next film. He went on to raise $1.4 million in the campaign and started filming. The Kickstarter campaign drew some controversy, as Lee clearly did not need his fans to raise money for his movie. Lee defended his decision by pointing to his modest beginnings as a filmmaker, directing movies that no studio would touch and scraping together funding on his own.
