Zach Braff Launches Kickstarter Campaign For His Next Movie – “Wish I Was Here”

Wish I Was Here

The floodgates are open. Following on the heels of the tremendously Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter, Zach Braff has launched a Kickstarter campaign of his own.  The film is titled “Wish I Was Here”, and is described a “continuation of the tone” from Braff’s directorial debut, Garden State. The campaign has a goal of $2 million, and has raised $684k at the moment.

A more detailed description of the plot:

“Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by [Zach Braff]), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid.

When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them.

The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.

The introductory video features Jim Parsons, Donald Faison, and Chris Hardwick.
