Irene Lee, Girl Detective is a short film by some Carnegie Mellon alums (and non-cmu alums, too). It only needs $175 as of writing to be fully backed on kickstarter. The film has already completed its principle photography, and funds will be used for post-production needs. The film makers are adding a voice often missing from mainstream media - a young, female, asian protagonist. After running the film festival circuit the film makers will be releasing it online for free to reach as wide of an audience a possible.
All funds they receive beyond their goal will go to making post-production even more awesome, with more expensive software, licensing fees, etc.
