After being contacted by several Hollywood publications, the Mychal Simka Alert Network has been able to spend enough time with reporters to tell them what we know of Simka's animated film crowdfunding shenanigans so far. Our inbox remains open for prominent publications or bloggers wishing to write a compelling article, especially if they are interested topics including: Crowdfunding, Hollywood, Film Crowdfunding, Equity Crowdfunding, MicroVentures (First Democracy VC/Indiegogo), Reg CF, Ariana Grande, Drake & Josh, and other related topics and celebs herein.
It's hard to believe this can happen on the internet for a guy that used to work for Lionsgate in a normal everyday job. He used his friends (Nickelodeon and Disney kids stars) from when he was a casting director at Lionsgate for their Twitter, Facebook, and other social media accounts for clicks to his fundraising page - AND IT WORKED - FOR $500K! Worked so well that he's doing it yet again on MicroVentures (First Democracy VC/Indiegogo).
pocket $500k from the crowd by driving clicks ("favors" from his Hollywood buddies) to the first of his two Reg CF crowdfunding campaigns. Who got played? A lot of people, especially the campaign team that Mychal Simka assembled with contractors all over the country.
Even worse, what about the naivefans of Ariana Grande, Drake Bell, Leon Thomas, Amber Frank, Garrett Clayton, Kat McNamara, Carlos PenaVega, and many more who put in their hard-earned cash? MicroVentures (First Democracy VC/Indiegogo) provided irresponsible Mychal Simka a vessel through which to conduct Reg CF crowdfunding activities. This guy is a genius. See the full list of Simka's Hollywood buddies that helped him get rich this year. All they had to do was make a couple tweets linking to the campaign... no big deal, right?

I guess the old idiom “fake it til you make it” has crossed over into crowdfunding, where @MychalSimka told Bunny Bravo investors that he was the brain behind “Birds of Paradise”. Wrong, #deceptive and downright sick. It was a @Lionsgate / @GrindstoneEnt film NOT @SimkaEnt pic.twitter.com/vTS6wQHtnX— JOBS Act Title III Predatory Financing (@RegCF) December 13, 2017
