Ken Levine won't give Zach Braff a Dime for his new movie

Article can be found here

Ken Levine isn't going to help fund Zach Braff's new movie, but not because he doesn't like the guy.  It's because Braff is famous and has the connections necessary to get this movie funded, where as people who aren't known in the industry, that you've never heard of, don't have these connections.

   I'm torn on the issue.  On the one hand, I agree that Kickstarter's purpose is for people who don't have clout to help give them a leg up in the industry (Whichever industry they're trying to get into).  This also comes across to me that Braff is simply being lazy.  Why do the hard work which is involved in getting a movie made when you can just make a post and have your fans fund you themselves?

On the other hand, there's nothing in Kickstarter's ToS which states that well known people can't do this.  And if people want to fund Braff, then it's none of my concern.  Is Braff being lazy? Yes.  Would I do the same thing in his place?  Yes.
