Final tally from the Kickstarter campaign: $264,860 from more than 6100 people who hate sparkly vampires and living dead girls (hi, Kristen Stewart, despite your "I love Rock's Modern Life" speech at the Kids' Choice Awards). That's about 480 percent above the goal.

Kickstarter has gotten a lot of attention because it helped bring the Veronica Mars movie finally come to live. The goal was much bigger, two million dollars, to show Warner Brothers that they want the Noir Nancy Drew to have a better fate than the final episode several years ago.
