Slash, a Comedy About Erotic Fan Fiction, Is Kickstarter-ing the Sex Scenes

As an indie teen comedy with 90 per-cent of its footage shot, Slash looks just okay. But that’s because they haven’t actually shot the fan fiction erotica scenes yet. They need your money to make them look like actual comic-book movie characters having sex.

And the rewards are pretty great…from a certain point of view. The filmmakers will write fan fiction for you. They’ll make you a 3D figurine of the movies main fictional superhero in the erotic pose of your choice. They’ll read your fanfic aloud (hey, I do that for free!). About the only thing NOT on offer is a bonus cramming.

It sounds good in theory…unless this is all an elaborate ruse to round up people who like fanfic and put them on some kind of watch list. You never know.
