Ex-Mormon filmmaker Richard Dutcher starves for his movie art
“Hunger strike” » Provo filmmaker on three-week fast to raise funds for new comedy.

< Previous Page

"Kickstarter allows filmmakers who otherwise would have NO access to Hollywood and NO access to serious investors to scrounge up enough money to make their movies," TV writer Ken Levine (whose credits include episodes of "M*A*S*H" and "The Simpsons") wrote on his blog. "Zach Braff has contacts. Zach Braff has a name. Zach Braff has a track record. Zach Braff has residuals. He can get in a room with money people."

Braff, Dutcher said, "is kind of spoiling the waters and messing it up [for others]."

Dutcher has faced online criticism of his own during his "hunger strike," Rock said — including "a lot of jabs" about his weight. She’s fought back all of them.

"With my mad writing skills, I’ll just put them in their place," Rock joked. "They are left speechless, because they don’t want any more of that crap."

Dutcher is unfazed by it all, she said. "He’s really just been so zen."
