FAQ: THE CAMPAIGN
Why crowdfund Super Troopers 2?
Why aren’t you paying for it yourselves?
If we could afford to fund our own movie, we would. But the truth is, we can’t. We’re just normal guys who put their underwear on one foot at a time. (Well, except Stolhanske. He’s got a peg-leg.) In order to get this movie made, it’s going to take a village. And what could be more fun than living in a grassy hut together? Ok, that could get a little stinky.
But seriously, we’re crowdfunding to make the best damn film possible for you bonediddlies. We love you guys, we love what we do, and we want you to be part of that with us.
UPDATED APRIL 11, 2015: If you want a real, detailed answer to this question – and want to know why crowdfunding was our only option for making Super Troopers 2 – Jay wrote a detailed explanation for The Daily Beast. Read up!
Now that you've passed $2 million, isn't Super Troopers 2 getting made? Why keep going? Why do you need more money?
We're glad you asked, because that's now the most important question in this campaign:
As we've said all along: $2 million is enough to help us make the most basic version of Super Troopers 2, which would just be us putting on our uniforms and counting Farva’s mustache hairs for 82 minutes… but that’s not the movie we’ve been waiting to make.
The more we can raise, the better we can make the movie, and the more you'll love it. A bigger budget means more stunts, more famous actors who can actually act, more explosions and chase scenes, and more goddamn shenanigans that’ll make the movie great. For 92 minutes!
Is a studio running this Indiegogo campaign with you?
Not even a little bit. In fact, the studio's lawyers wanted to make sure that we clearly stated the following:
Broken Lizard is solely responsible for these messages and fulfilling these obligations.
No one else had anything to do with the creation of this page or with the campaign.
(Which is true. Any bad jokes are ours too.)
