While I'm certainly glad to see this incredible groundswell of support for Spike Lee's Kickstarter campaign, despite initial criticism (he's only about $100,000 away from reaching his $1.25 million goal, with 6 days to go), I just thought I'd remind everyone who contributed to his campaign in any way (whether directly monetarily, or otherwise) not to forget the "little guys," the filmmakers/content creators who really are resource-strapped, and don't have the celebrity reach that people like Spike Lee, Zach Braff, the Veronica Mars crew, Shemar Moore and other celebs who've successfully raised hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars via crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, this year.
