An attempt to crowdsource enough money to send M. Night Shyamalan back to film school.
After a trailer for an M. Night vehicle sent an audience into high-pitched laughter, it was decided that something had to be done. That something was M. Night School, which aimed to help the down-on-his-luck filmmaker. With a goal of 150,000 dollars, roughly the cost of four years of NYU, we knew he'd never take the money. So a backup plan was enacted: set up a scholarship in his name for a budding young filmmaker. Sadly, the goal was no where close to being reached. But one thing's for sure: M. Night heard about all of it.
