They’re using Comic Sans for the artist names? This says everything you need to know about this project.

Not for nothing, but isn’t this footage like 11 years old?
It looks like the video that was being shot during the San Francisco Reubens in 2003. Are they still trying to finish this film so many years later? Some of the content has to be way out of date.

And Dan Piraro doesn’t even remotely look like that anymore.

I agree. This footage (and music) look to have been around a lot longer than April of 2009. Which is when kickstarter…started.
