I don't believe that better press coverage would have led to a substantially better result. Ok maybe if it was covered by the press it could have made twice, or even three times as much money!

I might be completely wrong but I'm assuming that you can't raise a million by waiting the occasional backer to throw in $15 because why not. I believe you need an existing community of fans dedicated enough to collectively decide to help this get made even if they have to spend a lot of money on it. It is pretty obvious such a group does not exist (and I don't believe that the lack of a credit card would stop someone willing to spend thousands on this, they'd find a way)

Such people would have heard about this. They would have given it a good boost and press coverage would have followed - because it's one thing to say there was no press coverage but why would anyone bother to report about a project that was doomed from the beginning from a guy most people don't know who he is?
(And yes, I've seen several people saying how important this guy is and that people should be recognizing his name, and maybe in a fair world he would have been as famous as Madonna, but that won't convince potential backers in this world to reach for their credit cards)
