Hi, I hope everybody’s going great. Part 2 of the USA road-trip is approaching quickly. More than 6,000 miles and 24 states await…
Work from the road will include video clips, photos, writing and artwork: the main focus is the film / documentary, asking people: “What’s your philosophy in life?”
This time I’ll be accompanied by a friend and colleague and we’ll be going through the states yet unseen, down the East Coast from New York to Florida, then all the way Northwest to Washington state, and then south again to California. At least that’s the ‘plan’…
So I’d like you to meet and welcome Cedric: he’s a talented writer and creative soul and will bring energy, and perhaps at times a hint of snarkiness, to the project.
We’ve been toying with different ideas about new formats for the upcoming road-trip, and we’d like to hear your feedback!
The basic structure, providing a video clip, a set of photos and diary notes for each chapter will probably remain. In addition to that, we’re thinking of a video diary: short clips with more personal / entertaining features pertaining or not to the making of the documentary.
Also thinking of a ‘column’ or some kind of combined writing format where both of us would share viewpoints on the adventures, and perhaps play upon each other’s opinions (hopefully Cedric’s vibrant style will contrast with my anti-apoplectic formality which can at times dull diamonds).
And we’re hoping this ‘column’ can eventually be interactive; our musings could be based upon your contributions and thoughts.
Some of these formats might be published on new Topic Pages instead of postings: don’t want to spam email subscribers.
Thanks for taking a look at the poll and commenting about anything you would like to see (or not see…)
So look forward to some continuously updated multimedia content in the next month, during which we’ll also be seeking support on Kickstarter to help make the movie come true.
Support from the Kickstarter campaign will be used in order to cover professional editing, soundtrack and post-production costs, not the actual road-trip(s) which we’re paying out of our own pocket.
You could really help by taking a look and sharing it. And if you’ve liked some of the pictures or artwork, prints will be available for supporters, including previous works (this is a one time-thing for this Kickstarter project), as well as come cool personalized items, and of course the DVD / movie release.
Thanks again to everybody, it’s really been great to hear your feedback and meet people, and I hope this is just the beginning.
Welcome, or welcome back, to ooamerica!
Share the road!
