After exceeding their $2.1 million crowdfunding goal earlier this year to make a crime drama about Kermit Gosnell and his West Philadelphia "house of horrors," late-term abortion clinic, starting Wednesday, Indiegogo is allowing the Gosnell movie producers to reopen their campaign indefinitely as part of its "forever funding" program.
By reopening the crowdfunding campaign, producers Ann McElhinney, Phelim McAleer and Magdalena Segieda will continue to offer "thank you" gifts to donors and have set new goals for the crime drama, which includes raising an additional $500,000 to extend filming to four weeks, and securing the best actors they can find for the film. The producers also hope to increase the number of backers from the 26,574 who donated over $2.2 million to over 100,000 backers to show potential distributors that a large number of Americans support the project.
"It's a huge boost to the movie — more donations, means more shooting days, better actors, higher production values, it'll mean a better movie. It will also mean we'll be able to get Gosnell's story out to a wider audience," McElhinney said in a statement shared with The Christian Post on Wednesday. more >>
