Earlier this year, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion of Firefly/Serenity fame, launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the first few episodes of their comedy web series, Conman. They initially asked for $425,000 to fund three 10-minute episodes, but the campaign exploded thanks to their devout fan base who have longed to see the two friends in another production together. They raised over $1 million in 24 hours, setting a record for crowd funding a web series, and closing the campaign with a total of $3,124,214. Thanks to the massive outpouring of support, they produced a full season of 13 episodes and rewarded their supporters with posters, T-shirts and the opportunity to have lunch with Tudyk and Fillian (a $10,000 tier that sold all 4 slots!).
