So, I've been really active on Kickstarter lately, and I've found that there are some projects I want to spread the word about, most of which I'm backing, some of which I'm not, but want to provide with some support anyway.
I'm going to try to stick to projects that haven't gotten huge amounts of publicity, FWIW.
So, first off, Dust, a short movie. I feel obligated to put it first not just because it looks excellent, but because it's kinda on the fence whether it'll succeed. The principal photography is finished, but the Kickstarter is for the (evidently fairly essential) post-production effects. Anyway, I really want this project to happen, so I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd all pledge, pimp it or both.
Next up is the Nesl. I don't actually have much to say about it except that it seems kinda helpful if you're as disorganized as I am or have a lot of cords, but I put it second because it's the only open project I'm backing that is neither Dust nor fully funded.
A project that's kinda odd, but caught my interest, is PennyGems. Game tokens/counters made of pennies, with stickers on each side and polyurethane domes over both stickers. Beautiful, convenient, absurdly durable (one of the tests the guy did on them involved dumping them in hydrochloric acid). A bit expensive, but very cool. If you're outside the US and Canada, you can get an international package, which includes the necessary pennies.
A much smaller project that I nevertheless think is pretty nice: Ghost PokeZine. Just a little booklet with illustrations of the 28 Ghost Pokemon. Backers can also get personal drawings of whatever Pokemon you want (for me, that'll likely be Shedinja).
Finally, a bonus. One I'm not backing, but that looks pretty cool. Last night, Nova posted a link to Business or Pleasure, a lesbian romance short film. Again, not going to back it, and I don't know its odds of success, but I think it's nicely emblematic of what Kickstarter is for: getting things done that wouldn't have gotten funding otherwise.
