TIME Late Night

Watch: Zach Braff Went Extra Mile to Fund Movie on Kickstarter

The actor revealed how he thanked his crowdfunding supporters

Actor Zach Braff went on Late Night with host Seth Meyers Monday to talk about his new movie, Wish I Was Here, which was funded by fans through Kickstarter.

With the help of about 47,000 supporters from around the world, Braff was able to write and direct the film with his brother. To thank those who funded the project, Braff said that he decided to leave personal messages on his fans’ voicemail.

But some requests were a bit odd, Braff said.

“This one guy was a dentist and wanted me to read a greeting for people in his waiting room,” Braff said. “So I did it! Welcome to Dr. Shapiro’s office! Hi I’m Zach Braff, please turn off your cellphone!”

Wish I Was Here opened in theaters July 18.
