Gosnell TV Movie Becomes Indiegogo's Most Successful Crowdfunding Campaign

Gosnell TV Movie Becomes Indiegogo's Most Successful Crowdfunding Campaign

The team behind the upcoming TV movie about convicted killer Kermit Gosnell counted on the public to help them fund their project. They said that the mainstream media and Hollywood didn’t give Gosnell’s horrific crimes the attention they deserved.

The result? The most successful crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo’s history, beating projects spearheaded by actors James Franco and Shemar Moore.

Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney credit the support of popular actors Kevin Sorbo and Nick Searcy for starring in videos promoting the project.

McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney have raised $907,460 to date and the total continues to climb. The record for a crowdsourcing campaign continues to be Veronica Mars on Kickstarter, which pulled in $5.7M after hoping to raise $2M for the film. In comparison, Franco collected $327,929 for Palo Alto Stories on a goal of $500,000 falling short and Moore raised $638,983 on a goal of $500,000 for the romantic comedy The Bounce Back.

The Gosnell TV movie will focus on Kermit Gosnell, the late term abortionist accused of killing babies after they were born in gruesome fashion. The filmmakers are seeking $2.1 million to complete the project.
