Two years ago, a trio of Chicago-based indie filmmakers and sketch comedy artists called FND Films launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise $75,000 for its first feature film. As soon as they reached their funding goal, the group stopped posting news and updates for their backers.

Earlier this month, FND Films posted this clip to inform its fans that the feature film was a no-go:

Not surprising, given how many crowdfunding campaigns have come up short and disappointedbackers. But today, FND posted this:

Yup, it’s the trailer for FND’s feature film, ‘It’s All Good’. The movie is about a group of indie filmmakers who raise a bunch of money on a crowdfunding platform and then make off with it. Now that’s what I call meta-trolling.

If the trailer is anything to go by, It’s All Good is likely to be a blast. It’s out on October 21 and you can find out more on the movie’s official site.
