New film Obey the Giant

Obey the Giant is an ambitious new narrative film being produced by students at the Rhode Island School of Design in the US.

Currently in post-production, the film tells the story of a young Shepard Fairey's first act of street art. According to the trailer, the now-famous artist vandalised a campaign billboard for Buddy Cianci - who was running for re-election as mayor of Providence on Rhode Island - in the 1980s.

The team of 150 who worked on the project are unable to finish it. They were asking for $30,000 in donations to finish it off. They reached that target and are now asking for $70,000. I wonder if the Kony 2012 campaigners were this successful?
