After bringing the world of crowdfunding into the spotlight, Amanda Palmer is now giving back with advice in her book, The Art of Asking or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help.

Rob Zombie is coming out with a new film and he’s using crowdfunding to fund it. He’s calling all horror fans to help make his new film “31” at RZ-31.com. He’s offering exclusive merchandise, collectibles from past movies, original artwork and access to both the “31” movie set and his concerts. Why did he decide to do this? Zombie says:

They live and breathe it, as I do, and any way that you can bring the people that are as passionate about it as you are into the process is a win-win for everybody.
