When did “The Journey” get renamed? It sank almost as fast as it was launched (I’m not sure it was ever shown completely in Montreal, I remember one attempt that did it in installments, but stopped before all parts were screened, too small an audience). So not using the same name means those who knew about it might not recognize it from a different title.

And I’m tired of people acting like “crowdfunding” is new. Of course it’s not, “The Journey” and “Manufacturing Consent” are just two examples of how it used to be done. And the internet hasn’t made it magic, a website won’t bring in the money, the same campaigning is needed. At best, the mechanics are easier. And like petition drives, a good fundraising campaign is about more than the end goal, it’s a chance to be visible early and discuss it all.
