a Kickstarter Campaign
for a Documentary
on Little India

Have you ever heard of Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a place that creative people can go to get funding for creative projects. You can find all kinds of projects on Kickstarter, and then common people like you and I can chip in on the ideas that excite us.

According to the Kickstarter web site:

Kickstarter 101

What's Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

Since our launch on April 28, 2009, over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding more than 30,000 creative projects.

And now, a guy named Mike has proposed a project. He would like to make a documentary about Little India. Take a look at his project on his Kickstarter Page! On his page, Mike says this:

"As a 22 year former resident of New Jersey, and more specifically Edison, I witnessed first hand the early stages of Indian business development along Oak Tree Road. Now, nearly 10 years later, I plan to return and venture to the heart of Little India and learn more about how the area has been revitalized over the years. This documentary will also provide those who haven't had a chance to visit, an up-close look at the amazing slice of India that exists in New Jersey.

I plan to interview local residents to get their take on how the area has changed over the years, but most importantly, I would like to interview the local business owners who are responsible for the enormous growth and evolution of the area."
