New Spike Lee Joint

With the help of friends, fans and organizations, filmmaker Spike Lee raised $1.4 million in 30 days with Kickstarter to fund his forthcoming film. While Lee faced criticism for asking fans to contribute to his film budget, he defended his project, saying that donors would get perks based on the amount donated, including dinner and courtside Knicks tickets.
