Prolific songwriter/ artist Daniel Johnston has been one of indie music's most interesting stories for the last 20 years. The artist, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and manic depression, was the subject of the 2006 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Filmmaker Gabriel Sunday is currently using Kickstarter to fun another film about Johnston entitled Hi, How Are You: A Short Film Starring Daniel Johnston. After hearing of the Kickstarter campaign, Mac Miller reached out to Gabriel on Twitter offering his help saying: "I would like to pay to have a portrait done. and am willing to help fund the movie... I got at least 15k for u and can help with score. Hit me." Shortly after the outreach from Mac, Gabriel confirmed that Mac helped fund the project, tweeting "@MacMiller just threw $10k @ our @HiHowAreYouFilm w love. He got Daniel's chord organ & Executive Producer cred. SOO excited. Awesome guy." While it's not clear whether Mac Miller will be involved with helping score the film as he originally hoped, he did fund the above $10,000 package which includes an Executive Producer Credit along with Daniel's chord organ. According to both Mac and Gabriel, Lana Del Rey will also be attached to the project as an Executive Producer.  To celebrate the funding, Mac had one of Johnston's iconic drawings tattoo'd on his leg after a recent concert in Toronto.
