Veronica Mars....the movement

"Veronica Mars made history by raising more than $2 million in just 10 hours"

Is today the pivotal moment in time and space where we look back on and say that tv production changed forever? Are there enough $10,000 speaking role backers to change how tv is produced and what does this mean for the revenue curve for the various parties.

Whats also interesting is the digital download on the same day of theatrical release for $35 (same as how bbc are selling the dvd's in the UK....before the USA tv broadcast of Downton Abbey). Is the cut to be made from the "eager beavers" who are prepared to pay more to watch at home? (hey who needs over priced coke and popcorn when i can watch it at home).

Will also be interesting to see if pressure is put on Kickstarter to cut fees for $1m+ fund raisings.

Either way its interesting times for LiveTVchat.com
