Daniel Johnston is on Kickstarter now, looking for cash to finish and release a collaborative film he’s made with LA-based maker-of-film Gabriel Sunday. Titled ‘Hi, How Are You?’, the part-narrative short will chart Johnson’s life and artistic times, and feature his songs and illustrations.

In a bid to raise $35,000 to cover post-production costs, Johnston promises, amongst other prizes given to sponsors, to draw portraits (priced at $1000) of those donating, and also to add fans as cartoon characters into the film itself.
