Pop Culture – Kickstarting a Hanks

Actor Colin Hanks, son of Bosom Buddies and The Burbs star Tom Hanks, has turned to the web to help finance a passion project of his – a documentary about the rise and fall of Tower Records.   Having grown up in Sacramento where Tower originated, Hanks utilized social fundraising service Kickstarter to raise the $50,000 needed to finish the film which he directed himself.   He’s already exceeded $78,000, proving the power of Kickstarter and its users…  along with the power of having a mega-famous father.
