Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard, 16, launches his own movie after raising $20k from fans in one day – The Sun

STRANGER Things star Finn Wolfhard has raised over $20,000 through crowdfunding in order to make his own short movie.

The 16-year-old actor took to YouTube to share the news that he was hoping to make a short film, a dark comedy called Night Shifts, and was counting on his fans to back him for the funding.

"It’s about how people come in and out of your lives and nothing’s the same ever after high school," Finn explained.

"I’ve been toying with that idea in my mind for a long time and I thought the best way to get a budget for it was to do this."

He said the script was already complete and he was now hoping to begin filming.

In less than 24 hours five people had donated $1500 to be named executive producers, and the goal was then raised to $26,000.

"We have set a goal of $26,000 to complete our short film. Making this film will require a lot of hard work and we need your help to make it happen! Every donation helps, no matter how small!" the description on the IndieGoGo page read.

"To show you how much we appreciate your support we are providing a few great perks you will receive for your donation. Our perks range from signed props, to a credit in the film. Head over to the “Perks” section to check them out!"

Ten fans paid $266 for signed copies of the script while 30 people paid $166 for signed props for the film, once made.

Another $380 USD you would get a "special thanks credit at the end of the film".

Finn will next be seen in Stranger Things' fourth season, currently in the making – although the upcoming series could be the last for the Netflix franchise.

After the tragic death of a much-loved character, fans of the show are eager to find out what has been going on in the eerie town of Hawkins.

Although no official release date has been announced yet, the series usually begins in either July or October.

Season three dropped in July (Thursday, July 4, 2019 – to be exact), with all eight episodes uploaded to Netflix at once.
