Hi fellow fans! I am a film student from Germany and I just started working on a Star Wars Fan Film. I was thinking of crowdfunding possibilites to finance the shooting. But im not sure how legal issues are on this. Especially when characters from the films are involved. I searched the web for crowdfunded SW projects and didn't find anything (except the "building the death star" one). So i wanted to ask you to share your views, thought & knowlegde on this Should I try it? Or is it too risky? There have been other fan films that used crowdfunding and it worked out apparently. Examples: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/451006238/nightwing-the-series http://jporigins.com/ Thank you very much for your help!
