Suju Vijayan’s Initiative with her film “Playback Singer”
Suju Vijayan, the writer and director of a film called “The Playback Singer” that stars, among others, Bollywood singer/songwriter/actor Piyush Mishra, and successful Indian American actress Navi Rawat, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise finishing funds for the film.
If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, it’s a phenomenally successful “crowdsourcing” website where people can donate to projects they want to support in return for perks as well as the undying thanks of the project creators. This year, Kickstarter is on track to distribute more money to its users’ projects than the entire fiscal budget of the National Endowment of the Arts. It’s truly become the go-to site for DIY artists, filmmakers, inventors, and others.
