We all know that the movie industry is still in the stone age. Netflix is not available just anywhere, Amazon video doesn't work in all parts of the world and a global service that'd be for movies like for example Steam for games is impossible to make due to region locking DVD idiocy and ignoring the era of moving to digital distribution (less costs, more money).

If nothing, this Kickstarter project is raising questions. Even if they don't succeed to secure international distribution rights here, I bet next KS projects will function like a rolling snowball till the industry decades old decisions finally get dead and burried.

There is a slight problem though. This movie, when released will have no dubs and no subs (except maybe the transcript on english with written text and important sounds for hearing impaired audience). But who cares? Do we buy games only if dubbed/subbed on our language? Of course not.
