If you asked Mark Bunker what he does for a living, his answers would likely be misleading and questionable at best. His background as to accomplishments and making a living are riddled with dependency on others.

In possibly impolite, but factual terms, Bunker is a seasoned freeloader.


Fundraising Campaigns Start

In late 2010, Bunker started what would become a series of fundraising campaigns for a project that never came to fruition despite the financial support.

First campaign: September 15 to December 13, 2010

Second campaign: October 2 to December 14, 2010

Third campaign: February 18 to May 19, 2011

Fourth campaign: June 1 to July 31, 2011

Fifth campaign: August 21 to November 17, 2011

Sixth campaign: November 28, 2011 to February 23, 2012

Seventh (“5B”) campaign: March 6 to May 17, 2012

Eighth (“7th”) campaign: July 3 to October 1, 2012

Ninth (“8th”) campaign: February 28 to April 29, 2013

Tenth (“9th”) campaign: September 23 to November 22, 2013


Other Platform

Three years into the campaigns, with over $67,000 raised, Bunker took to another platform to get additional handouts while using an exaggerated and creative description for the fundraising campaign, claiming “legal troubles”.

GoFundMe campaign number 1: “Legal Fund”, December 18, 2013

Bunker explained he was being evicted at the insistence of the Church of Scientology, a tall tale which never came true yet Bunker still received sufficient donations to cover his rent.

Back Onto IndieGoGo

Two months later, he re-started the earlier fundraising campaigns.

Eleventh (“10th”) campaign: March 27 to May 26, 2014

Twelfth (“11th”) campaign: June 30 to August 29, 2014

Thirteenth (“12th”) campaign: October 20 to December 19, 2014.

In his thirteenth campaign, Bunker assured his backers that he was wrapping up his project and encouraged further donations.


“Thanks to you, I’m wrapping up production on my own documentary… I want to have it finished by the end of the year. So if you can, contribute to the latest fundraising campaign….”


Fourteenth campaign: April 4 to June 3, 2015

The End of IndieGoGo Campaigns

After almost five years, Bunker completed his fourteenth and last fundraiser on this platform, having amassed $87,967.

June 3, 2015. Total funds raised on IndieGoGo: $87,967.


Still More

Six months later, he seemed to start over again, this time using GoFundMe and pushed donations on that campaign for at least 5 months, which included him dramatizing claims of “legal opposition”.

All totaled, Bunker’s 6-year handout campaign run grossed $96,407 for a project that never saw the light of day.
