(Update on Nov 4, 2011: The movie crowd-funded the pledged amount in 25 days!)
Deepak Rauniyar, a young Nepali film director, is attempting to crowd-fund the post production of his movie – Highway, through Kickstarter, which claims to be the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.
This is first time that any Nepali creative project has sought crowd-funding. Although the shooting and many works of the movie have been already completed, the 33-year-old producer/director/assistant editor is seeking to raise nearly Rs. 2.3m (USD 30,000) in 30 days.
As of writing this post, the project has already raised USD 15,494 in 11 days, and it looks like the project will raise the pledged fund.
