Do you have a creative project you'd love to see come to life, but don't have the funds? Kickstarter can help.

Kickstarter is a way for folks to find funding for their creative projects. Want to make an indie movie? Record a CD? Produce a play? Kickstarter helps you find like minded people willing to "kickstart" your project  with some much needed funds.

All of the filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control and responsibility over their own projects.

Candi & Randy talk to Emmy Award winning writer Leslie Nipkow and Broadway veteran T Oliver Reid about their successes with the program.??

Every project creator sets their project's funding goal and deadline. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal all backers' credit cards are charged when time expires. If the project falls short no one is charged.??

Since it's launch in April 2009:
    •    $331 million pledged to projects
    •    2.6 million people have backed a project
    •    28,000 projects successfully funded
