Multi-hyphenate talent Zach Braff has, this morning, turned to Kickstarter to raise money for his latest project, a comedy drama titled Wish I Was Here. Marking his first directing project since 2004's Garden State, Wish I Was Here was written by Zach and his brother, Adam Braff, and is officially described as follows:

Wish I Was Here is the story of Aidan Bloom (to be played by Braff), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he'd always dreamed he'd be as a little kid.

When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them.

The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn't find.


Said to be motivated by last month's incredibly successful Veronica Mars feature film campaign, Braff says that he hopes Kickstarter will enable crowdfunded projects to retain a greater sense of creative control on the part of the artist.
