August 16, 2011 at 5:43 pm
I wonder what game it is….
August 16, 2011 at 5:44 pm
That the movie is about? ET.
August 16, 2011 at 5:45 pm
Oh, nevermind, I see what you’re referring to now.
August 16, 2011 at 5:47 pm
Usually I’d be one the of the first people to accuse James of “selling out” like so many other youtubers these days begging for money for new computers, cameras, etc.
But I wanna see this fucking movie, so I don’t consider this to be the case. I hope we as fans can all get behind James, donate what we can and get the ball rolling on what is sure to be an awesome flick.
August 16, 2011 at 5:48 pm
Awesome. You should have had Mike working the phones behind you, like on one of those old PBS pledge drives.
You got it. I’ll make a donation at some point in the next few days. It may not be for much but, hey, you’ve given me enough laughs over the years that I feel like I owe you one. Good luck.
August 16, 2011 at 5:49 pm
Ok I just donated!
August 16, 2011 at 5:50 pm
yay avgn movie news! will donate as soon as I get myself a paypal account! sweet to hear about movie madness 2011, I love the earlier ones! looking forward to seeing it and the new avgn episodes
August 16, 2011 at 5:51 pm
Hope to See Keith Apicary in the Movie
August 16, 2011 at 5:52 pm
I wonder what the new game review is gonna be???
August 16, 2011 at 5:55 pm
Have you considered giving credit to people who make large donations? I have seen in a lot of independent fundraising that a person who (for example) gives 200 bucks gets thier name in the credits, 500 bucks gets your name in the credits and an autographed dvd of the movie, etc.
I’ve seen it work before. Just an idea…
Have you considered throwing the AVGN Movie Project on http://www.kickstarter.com? Thinking that both the AVGN Movie and all the Fans could benefit from it…
August 16, 2011 at 5:57 pm
I personally feel like since James has kept the videos on this site free and has kept me entertained for countless hours it’s the least I could do to help out when I get paid. Thanks for the update man.
August 16, 2011 at 5:58 pm
i think i know what the next review is gonna be …if you been keeping up with james’s appearances you might know too
u talked about going around the country and stuff for casting. how does that work exactly?
August 16, 2011 at 6:00 pm
You should definitely put it on http://www.kickstarter.com I’ve seen nothing but amazing support from fans on that site. Something about the way it’s set up makes you want to donate. XD
August 16, 2011 at 6:01 pm
lol big rigs
Does buying merchandise help?
August 16, 2011 at 6:02 pm
Im definitely looking forward to any new episodes as well as the movie, so when i get the chance ill donate =3 AVGN<3
August 16, 2011 at 6:03 pm
What if you want to grow a beard like in this video. AVGN doesn’t have a beard how you deal with that?
Oh my god Big Rigs! Nobody seems to have a decent review of that game online. I would LOVE to see you review Big Rigs. Good luck on your film and all your other work.
August 16, 2011 at 6:04 pm
Thank you man! You’ve made awesome videos!
I’ll definitely try and scrounge up a few bucks to put towards the making of this movie. Good luck with everything James and thanks for all the content you have provided us!
I agree with the previous posters. You should Kickstarter this project.
August 16, 2011 at 6:05 pm
Just donated. Keep up the good work!
August 16, 2011 at 6:06 pm
just donated. cant wait for that AVGN Movie !
August 16, 2011 at 6:07 pm
I just give you some money for your movie. But is there any other way I can help? I want to work on your music or any sounds you want. Like SFX or any music I can do for out. just let me know I want to help in any way I can.
I’ll be donating shortly, as soon as I get some finances sorted out. Can’t wait to see the film!
August 16, 2011 at 6:08 pm
BIG RIGS is the next AVGN Review!!! Can’t waith!!
August 16, 2011 at 6:09 pm
there ya go james, donating is done ^^ more than one dollar
he’s never going to get this movie made…just give up
August 16, 2011 at 6:11 pm
Good work James, how can I audition for your film?
YO! Love the work. Please try get some vids of some good games commin our way! CANT WAIT!
I got a couple bucks I can throw at your movie!
HEY EVERYONE, if you dont have a paypal account then SIGN UP NOW!
DONT BE CHEAP! ITS JUST A DOLLAR DAMNIT! LOL!
August 16, 2011 at 6:12 pm
I can possibly donate upwards of $500, but I’d like to have some credit to me if that happens. Trust me, I love you James, and I want this movie up and going as much as everyone, but surely you can understand why I’d want credit.
August 16, 2011 at 6:13 pm
Also, totally looking forward to the Cinemassacre DVD. I’ll be buying that in a heartbeat!
August 16, 2011 at 6:14 pm
hope to see the movie coming
good luck from saudi arabia
August 16, 2011 at 6:16 pm
ATTENTION PEOPLE OF CINEMASSACRE! Do not be a damn cheap skate! Donate a dollar! Support the movie NOW!
August 16, 2011 at 6:18 pm
Would be cool if you set this up as a Kickstarter project and have bonuses for people that donate. http://www.kickstarter.com/
Hey James, here is an idea to help expand donations. Have an account set up for people text to to donate $1, $5, or $10 (depending on what the person can afford). If you set up a number to text AVGN 1, AVGN 5, or AVGN 10 you would get a lot more donations that way because not everyone has a credit card, such as me. I’d donate but I have no credit card to do so, but I do have a cell. I think you should think about that and put it to use. I really want to be a part of this film, and since I can’t offer you anything in talent other than writing I’d like to help you out financially. And just to correct you a slight, you have mentioned your PayPal donation button once or twice in your AVGN videos. And don’t think of it as begging. We love your work and we want to keep it going so we’re all willing to keep helping out wherever we can. : )
August 16, 2011 at 6:19 pm
Oh and one more thing, when is the 5th vol. of the AVGN episodes coming out?
August 16, 2011 at 6:20 pm
About to send some money your way, James. 25 bucks isn’t much, but I hope it helps. I love everything you’ve done. You’re the fuckin’ man! Give my regards to Mike. He’s pretty bad ass too. Have a great one James and best of luck to you!
August 16, 2011 at 6:21 pm
1) I wish I was currently employed, and 2) I wish I had money to donate… well, like you said, theoretically if everyone donated a dollar… okay, I’ll go donate $1.
August 16, 2011 at 6:23 pm
Haha, Big Rigs.
There’s no shame in asking for a little money James. I know how much films can cost.
I’m really surprised there’s no interest from the major film corps. Here is a chance to produce a very unique film that could bring in a lot of money for them. I think our film studios are a bit out of touch.
I recently stumbled across your AVGN videos on youtube an fell in love with them right away. They are so much fun for me to watch, even though I’m not a big videogameperson. That’s why you’ve just received another 10 bucks or to be more precise 7,14 € from Germany. So keep up the good work! Greetings form your fans in Germany!
August 16, 2011 at 6:24 pm
Only takes a minute to set up a Pay-Pal account
I’ll donate soon as I can. All these years of good times and memories, It’s the least we can do!
August 16, 2011 at 6:26 pm
Oh sweet, how do I audition? I would very much appreciate an opportunity to be in your movie
I’m hoping to donate, real soon. So, until then, keep up the great work James and I know your movie will be awesome.
August 16, 2011 at 6:28 pm
You’re welcome big guy and donate i shall. By the way James, I was wondering if it would ever be possible to see a dvd release of monster madness? I doubt it considering all the footage used, but damn would that be cool. or at least made available for download off cinemassacre? or if nothing else a playlist of monster madness 2010? damn i love october.
KICKSTARTER YOU FOOL. IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME.
Seriously though, kickstarter has the potential to create some serious buzz, which is invaluable if you’re going the indie route. Please consider it. I’ll certainly be donating whatever I can whenever I can afford to do so, but a kickstarter would legitimize the thing to outsiders and get more eyes on the project… Maybe even the gaming press at large! Who knows!
Good luck duder,
Just donated. Good luck with the movie! METAL ON! *insert old 80′s japanese anime sound fx here*
August 16, 2011 at 6:30 pm
After reading some of the comments, I think you should look into the whole kickstarter thing and maybe even create a facebook group page for people to spread awareness.
August 16, 2011 at 6:32 pm
I will donate to your movie when you come through with that stool sample.
I love you, James
I’ll chip in
August 16, 2011 at 6:33 pm
Why not a Kickstarter campaign???
August 16, 2011 at 6:38 pm
Donated! Can’t wait to see the movie!
Just donated. I hope you do well James.
August 16, 2011 at 6:39 pm
Done. I wish I could give you more but I’m between jobs
Good luck for your movie, looking forward for more stuff !
August 16, 2011 at 6:40 pm
Just donated. And finally registered so I could comment. Love the show, love the PA beer, love everything about the Nerd. Here’s to hoping you get enough money for the movie and for movie nerd episodes.
August 16, 2011 at 6:42 pm
Definitely donating, especially after the video. James’s humility & warmth shines through… sort of guy you could have a beer & Michelangelo Pizza with regardless of how rich/famous he was!
August 16, 2011 at 6:44 pm
i’m pretty sure it’s metroid.
it was the 25 anniversary of the game some days ago and the metroid franchise has a crazy history of getting great reviews, but not selling.
then the franchise was given to retro studios, who made 4 failed projects before getting the metroid franchise, but for some reason Nintendo believed in them and finally they gave us the brilliant metroid prime series, from which the first part was the 2nd best selling game on the gamecube.
the other parts didn’t sell as well because every time a new metroid prime came out, a new halo game also came out.
then of course metroid being given to team ninja for other M was strange, since you wouldn’t expect it.
i wouldn’t be surprised if it was about metroid.
August 16, 2011 at 6:58 pm
Agree that you need to do a kickstarter.com fund drive for whatever $$$ amount you need to raise. Have some perks so that everyone who donates something gets access to a special page where they can get exclusive stuff from the movie. Everyone who donates say $X gets a DVD, $3x gets it signed by the cast, etc. You can have the folks hang out on set or get a premiere invite or get signed props, etc for different funding levels.
August 16, 2011 at 7:01 pm
i fell in love with metroid when i got this game called metroid fuzion, then i was like ” holy shit i never knew a side scroller shooting game could be so fun”. then i later bought metroid prime 3, no disapoint. it was pure awsome. thats the only two i got. not much of a nintendo fan im a sony guy. got a wii though because of smash bros and since the wii is fun. i dont play 360 unless im at a friends house.
1 dollar from a big fan outa germany
i know its less but thats all my paypal can give xD
keep on your great work
greetings from germany
August 16, 2011 at 7:02 pm
what game could come with a huge background history to it though. i know metroid has some but would it be enough to make a avgn over it.
August 16, 2011 at 7:06 pm
Trying to donate but it is saying ‘You cannot donate using the selected card’. Damnit.
I thought Paypal was universal but looks like because I’m from UK/Ireland, it’s not letting me complete transaction.
August 16, 2011 at 7:12 pm
Just donated some money least I could do for all the entertaining stuff with AVGN and Cinemassacre content. Also looking forward to the new DVD films.Best of luck on the film!
August 16, 2011 at 7:13 pm
Great! Just make sure you shave for the movie lol. ^_^
August 16, 2011 at 7:14 pm
Just donated! I’ve been watching your AVGN videos since 2007, and I’m so happy to finally be giving back a little for all the laughs and entertainment you’ve brought me over the years. Looking forward to the movie!!!
August 16, 2011 at 7:23 pm
For the entertainment I have gotten from James over the years I only wish I could donate more. I have enjoyed everything I’ve seen him do. AVGN is what Youtube is all about, easily one of the greatest Youtube channels ever.
I just donated a couple of dollars. Feels good to contribute to your work even though it’s not a big amount of money. Promise to donate more when I’m not a poor student.
August 16, 2011 at 7:25 pm
Hey James! I’ll donate when I get the chance. Thanks for the laughs over the years and awesome videos. I really enjoy them, I’ll help the movie project by donating and wish you the best of luck.
August 16, 2011 at 7:30 pm
i Finally registered. Man, i am watching an AVGN episode every night before i go to sleep.It’s like ritual.I wish you luck with all your cool projects.Sadly, i dont have paypal to donate you.
August 16, 2011 at 7:31 pm
Good luck to you, James! I hope the money comes rolling in like it did for George Bailey on xmas eve. James Rolfe, may you be the richest man on the Internet!
Now I wish I didn’T live in Canada, but in the US, at least there I could try out for the casting… :C
August 16, 2011 at 7:37 pm
After so many hours of entertaining i feel like you deserve much more but I´ve already sent my little donation, hope It help things get going , best wishes keep on rocking boss.
August 16, 2011 at 7:40 pm
you can do this using another program called Kickstarter james go look it up it is a really great way to get people to help with any type of project
August 16, 2011 at 7:41 pm
When I get paid at the end of the week I will give you as much as I can afford. With how many hours of laughs and entertainment you have given me over the past 5 years….for free no less, I feel like I owe it to you. I really hope the movie is a huge success for you James. You deserve it!
I know I will watch it the first day it comes out!
August 16, 2011 at 7:45 pm
+2 for using Kickstarter. It’s an amazing tool for getting financial support from the community.
August 16, 2011 at 7:46 pm
FUCK YEAH MONSTER MADNESS!!!!!
August 16, 2011 at 7:48 pm
Sorry for the odd/low donation amount just gave what was in my paypal account right now.
August 16, 2011 at 8:00 pm
I turned off Adblock on cinemassacre. just for you
Ayuh, just donated a lil something something. What are you estimating the movie budget to be? Just curious.
Also a site recommendation, I would love to see a Cinemassacre forum!
August 16, 2011 at 8:01 pm
oh gosh you have Big Rigs lol. that game is so bad it’s absolutely hilarious lol
August 16, 2011 at 8:15 pm
I also recommend kickstarter. It would be a nice way of following your progress aswell.
August 16, 2011 at 8:25 pm
This is great!
You should offer Monster Madness DVDs! I would LOVE to have those for every Halloween!
August 16, 2011 at 8:28 pm
Glad I could Donate James. Thanks for the last 4 years of entertainment I look forward to more
August 16, 2011 at 8:32 pm
dude set up a credit card payment for the donation. I’d donate.
keep up the good laughs brother
August 16, 2011 at 8:37 pm
James, I plan on donating because I’ve been a fan since the very first 3 episodes of AVGN. Been loyally watching your reviews ever since (yeah, I know it’s sad)
But why do you gotta post a video with the still image of you with a case of “Gimmie Hands”?!
You should have just posted a pic of you pointing a gun at the camera and demanding our money!
The best of luck to you nerd!
August 16, 2011 at 8:39 pm
Just donated, James. Glad I can be of help. Didn’t know you were working on episodes, I just figured you’d put everything on hiatus with the movie… that is dedication, sir
Good luck with everything movie-related. You can do it man! We are all counting on you.
August 16, 2011 at 8:42 pm
This Marine loves watching your stuff, always looking forward to all your new videos, Semper Fidelis!
August 16, 2011 at 8:49 pm
Donated! Can’t wait to see the results and proud to be a part of this project. Best of luck with production!
August 16, 2011 at 8:51 pm
You deserve it after all the hours of entertainment.
August 16, 2011 at 8:53 pm
Shame on me ! I was watching AVGN all these times, and never thought about donating once. Okay, here will be my first (and not the last) time donation. You don’t have to be sorry.
August 16, 2011 at 8:58 pm
Sent you a little something Hope everything works out well with the cast and the movie itself! Can’t wait!!
August 16, 2011 at 9:02 pm
Good luck with the movie James . I did my little share …
Greetings from the netherlands !
Yes we do watch you here aswell
August 16, 2011 at 9:10 pm
just browsin reddit and lo and behold there you were James, well this page talking about the AVGN movie bumped up to the very top!! Iv’e allready bought you out on AVGN DvDs long time ago. “and thx Screwattack for the awesome button btw” to try and hlp you out with all the free content you have/been providing for like ever. thx James and crew, seriously. you guy’s rock, GL and many best wishes to you guys in the near and distant future. nate
August 16, 2011 at 9:40 pm
I just donated all i had on my account its not much but its something
August 16, 2011 at 9:43 pm
I’ve been wanting to donate to you for awhile… looks like this is my motivation…. :P.
August 16, 2011 at 9:44 pm
James, its best to get back to basics with the avgn videos, assuming that you still plan on making them. No fancy special effects. Just you and the recording along with the wit and humor that you bring to the videos. That’s what makes you the best. Its not the effects, its your AVGN persona that makes you fascinating. Going fancy means longer production time and more expenses. Think back to basics such as the Silver Surfer video. Keep up the good work and good luck in your endeavors. Take care.
August 16, 2011 at 9:51 pm
you shall be getten money my friend… want to see this movie!
August 16, 2011 at 10:08 pm
James! I would love to donate to the AVGN movie but i don’t have Paypal because i don’t have a credit card. That’s shitty… I’ll find a way to help you out.
Also, if you need CGI animation or VFX in postproduction count me in.
Surely there’s like a thousand guys writing the same shit as me… whatever…
August 16, 2011 at 10:10 pm
Like so many others James you have my support, I’ll donate what I can to help see the movie happen.
August 16, 2011 at 10:23 pm
Big Rigs next AVGN maybe?
August 16, 2011 at 10:29 pm
Donated from Brazil.
August 16, 2011 at 10:40 pm
http://www.indiegogo.com/ is a great resource for raising money for indie projects.
I’m not sure how often you spend time reading through the comments, and you might already know, but my friends and other projects i’ve been involved with have extensively used it for fundraising independent projects. Take a look if you don’t know about it!
August 16, 2011 at 10:41 pm
You’ve given us so much great entertainment over the years and, to your point, never asked for anything. How could we refuse?
I have one simple ask. Sometimes it’s hard to find out where you will be appearing in person. I need my fucking powerglove signed by the nerd damnit! I’ve missed you 3 times already. It would be handy if you posted this to your RSS feed.
Paypal button being clicked now!
August 16, 2011 at 10:42 pm
Hey, I wish i could send you something and no i don’t have paypal sorry lol but if there was another way i would and i will try to help out ok,=)
August 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm
Well hey i will send you something i do have debit card so this week i get payed and sence i looked at the paypal i will send you something ok sorry i didnt look at it first so sorry lol.
August 16, 2011 at 10:53 pm
i don’t have a PayPal but if u start accepting checks I’ll give some of my own money
August 16, 2011 at 10:55 pm
Anyone else as generous as myself?
August 16, 2011 at 10:58 pm
Will donate what I can, I would donate more but I’m married. lol
August 16, 2011 at 11:02 pm
James! your Vid….nay….the videos Made by you and your team are the most!…..Way way way wayy wwaaaaayy. (in other words they are great) I was about to donate MORE money, however We are presently struggleing for money ourselves.
- you have $1.00 From Zentu The Psychic.
August 16, 2011 at 11:07 pm
I’ll have to see if I can remember the password to my PayPal account, I haven’t used it in years. Can’t wait to see all of James’ projects coming down the line.
Just donated 4$ from Finland because there’s four of my friends (me included) who watch your videos everyday! So dollar from each!
August 16, 2011 at 11:08 pm
Hey, you’ve got my support. Sure, I am looking forward to the movie, but more than, I hope this shows how much I appreciate all your hard work. Keep em up!
August 16, 2011 at 11:22 pm
I didn’t look at all the comments, but did you consider using kickstarter.com for fundraising? Might be able to offer, movie credit, DVDs or other merch as premiums.
August 16, 2011 at 11:27 pm
Donated $20. I’ve gotten a lot of entertainment from Cinemassacre.com.
August 16, 2011 at 11:45 pm
ok, you got my 1 dollar, hope you get enough for the movie.
August 17, 2011 at 12:00 am
Hope your dream comes into fruition, 25 bucks sent your way. Thanks for countless hours of entertainment
August 17, 2011 at 12:01 am
Just sent $10. Been a fan since the beginning. Thanks for all that you do.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Will donate soon.
August 17, 2011 at 12:02 am
Don’t feel weird asking – if you need help getting something you love to do started, go ahead and ask for it. You’ve earned a little help.
August 17, 2011 at 12:10 am
Everyone see if you can send $5 (that’s all I could swing right now). If everyone sent $5 (skip a latte or two) he could fund the movie.
