If you have similar geeky tastes to mine the chances are you have come across a Venganza Media podcast at some stage.
In the past I have celebrated their Star Wars Action News and Marvelicious Toys podcasts, but one of their other hugely popular pods is Now Playing, a film review show, and they are using this as the platform for their first Kickstarter campaign.
Having met its $40,000 funding goal in just 10 days, the campaign to fund their first publishing project, Underrated Movies We Recommend, is now entering its final leg.
With a few days remaining on Kickstarter (the campaign runs until Thursday, March 19), Underrated is closing in on a $95,000 stretch goal, which would boost the project from an e-book of 100 movie reviews to a printed copy and audiobook featuring 25 additional reviews. The audiobook is currently among the most requested options from the show’s listeners.
To reach the stretch goal, Now Playing Podcast has increased the incentive to participate, offering new, Kickstarter-exclusive podcasts to the campaign. These exclusive shows include reviews of Stanley Kubrick’s classic A Clockwork Orange and the notorious Olivia Newton-John dud Xanadu, along with previous Now Playing listener poll entries Super 8 and Wes Craven’s Shocker.
In addition to increasing their podcast output, the hosts continue to reveal the films they’ll review in Underrated, with the titles being announced on the show’s Kickstarter page.
