A novel way to help fund a film

If the Cubs win the World Series, the production team of Jon Siskel and Greg Jacobs could win more than $1,000 pledged to a website that would help fund their latest feature documentary.

Siskel/Jacobs signed up with ThePoint.com, a “Make Something Happen” site that helps raises money for a variety of impossible dreams, such as a dome to shield Chicago in the winter.

All money pledged by ThePoint visitors will go towards the $875,000 budget for Siskel/Jacobs’ “Louder Than a Bomb.” The film follows four local teams as they prepare to compete in the world’s largest youth poetry slam.

However, the money will only be collected if the Cubs win.
