HELPNATHANBUYFIREFLY.COM - Folks, it’s about time we spring the Big Damn Plan. There is a team of about 15-20 people that have been working around the clock (and around the world!) the last few days to figure out how we can make something happen, how we can make this work. To all those volunteers and to the fans who have supported us: Thank you. So many of you have been so excited and positive, and we’ve had so many amazing suggestions roll in, that we almost didn’t know where to begin. And certainly it bears saying that we’ve only been so cautious because doing it right matters more than doing it fast...

I think the financing side of things would be the easier part. As long as you have Joss and the gang all saying "yes," then the money - REAL "make movie" MONEY - would roll in. Just seeing the response from Nathan's comment is proof of that. So it's not the funding, it's the rights and the actors and Joss that are the hard part.

They talk about creating a place for firefly fans to organize and communicate. Perhaps they haven't heard of the amazing fireflyfans.net?

My sentiment exactly.


I just can't see this idea working.

Saw that too. I think the writing is on the wall at this point. If people want to cling to hope then there's not much else anyone can say to sway them.

Yeah, that kinda puts the nail in the coffin.

I guess I can't say I'm surprised. It occurs to me that undermining production rights, even on a fan-funding basis, might be considered a no in the biz, especially where a lot of it seems to be based on relationships between IP owners and the studios and a hand shake. Maybe it's considered crass or something.

I mean, these people all know each other. Maybe they're not in the habit of going around behind each other's backs for franchise rights and such.

Still, damn shame. I have to admit it had my own hopes up for a while. It was nice at least to see this kind of activity, even if it made the rest of the world o.o at us.

I agree that it's nice to see this kind of activity, even if it goes no where. A fan-based effort like this is pretty much doomed to failure, so to me the important thing isn't whether www.helpnathanbuyfirefly.com succeeded... but that it got some mainstream attention for FIREFLY. I saw FIREFLY-related stories on the front page of CNN twice in a three day span. If the right decision-making TV or movie exec also saw that... Who knows?

Now that it's over I truly hope they turn all that enthusiasm into memberships on sites like FFF.net and funnel their spending desire to our charities.

Our community, that's what is the legacy of Firefly.
All the good works we do too.

Actually, apparently it's Morena's. She supported the idea of fan-funding over at io9...

Poor Morena. Poor, poor Morena...

If nothing else, all this proves is how out of touch with the fan base the people at this website are.

Can this really happen? No. Is it nice to see all the Firefly-fervor again? Hell yeah.

But I'm not sending money until Joss tells me to.

I was continually struck, particularly on the Facebook page of HNBF, how very little of the rest of the fandom they knew anything about. Or of Joss and his current projects and of Nathan and his level of support for the fandom but not foolhardiness. The fan participation and excitement were wonderful to see, but some of the sheer gullibility was scary to see.

I am glad it seems to be winding down. They've started another Facebook page they're calling The Cortex to be their hub of activity and communication.
I wish they'd just come here or joined fff.net on Facebook...but time marches forward.

Indeed DMI - Joss is Boss. :)

I guess you have to look at it this way: hardcore fans inhabit sites exclusively for a show, such as this one. Facebook is a way for the numerous casual fans to get involved with the fandom because so many people are already on facebook anyway. I know that I've personally converted dozens to the show, but none of them have registered on fff.net, but many of them have liked some sort of Firefly fan page on FB. We all talk about spreading the word and introducing new people to the show; perhaps this is the result.

A definite positive from all this has been the mass showing of support for Firefly.

A definite positive.
I don't care where fans talk about Firefly, I am just glad they're talking about Firefly and FB is a huge place to get attention.
