Kickstarter Roundup: Selling Pies, Designing Infographics, Making Movies (Lots of Them)

by Zach Frechette

October 8, 2009
From time to time we like to check in with our friends over at Kickstarter to see what new and excellent projects are in need of funding. Here's what I've found recently: PieLab, an outgrowth of GOOD-darling Project M, is looking to expand their experimental pop-up pie shop-which has become a hub for community activity-to include a full service kitchen and a larger space. While a $10 donation will get you a coupon for one free slice of pie, $500 or more gets a pie created, named, sold, and eaten in your honor.
Feltron vs. Kickstarter combines two things we like-the microfunding platform that is Kickstarter, and the visual journalist (and sometimes-GOOD contributor) Nick Feltron-in service of making Kickstarter's stats more engaging, useful, and just plain sexy. Get a badge for participating (digital or meatspace, depending on how much you contribute). Only a few days left!
OpenIndie is trying to turn the traditional model of film distribution on its head. The project is hoping to connect 100 films (and correlated filmmakers) with audiences that want to see them using mapping technology to set up screenings wherever there's a critical mass of interest and opportunity. Donations allow you to be part of the website they're building.
