Richard Dutcher is taking the "starving artist" thing literally.
The Utah County filmmaker is trying to raise money to finish his latest movie, the comedy "The Boys at the Bar," and he's launched a hunger strike to raise awareness to his Kickstarter campaign.
The Kickstarter campaign is has so far raised more than $10,000 - about a third of the amount Dutcher is seeking -- with three weeks to go. Dutcher says he will consume only water until the $30,000 goal is reached or the Kickstarter deadline is hit, whichever comes first.
"I've decided to take a little inspiration from Gandhi," Dutcher says on a YouTube video he posted Sunday, in which he ceremonially eats two orange slices -- the last food he says he'll consume until he's raised $30,000 in finishing funds.
