Ever wished you left it all behind and hit the road?
Welcome to ooamerica, a mixed media road-trip through the USA including a movie, photography, art, writing and more (rough itinerary below).
I left in April 2011 and spent six months traveling across the country, living in a car, covering more than 33 states and 14,000 miles. And again in March 2012 for another 2 months and 8,000 miles.
The main project is a feature-length documentary with interviews of the (very) different people met along the way, asking each one common question:
“What’s your philosophy in life?”
I need funding for the movie's post-production, and people who make pledges will be featured in the movie credits and online, as well as get picture postcards or prints from the movie / photos online.
You can choose from the pictures, or simply give some general indications about what you'd like (ie: a state, color or Black&White).
Any questions, ideas?
Kickstarter is a site that enables people to make pledges to fund creative projects they like. To make a pledge, the user needs to have an Amazon account and / or credit card. If and only if the project goal is met, pledges are then debited.
If the pledge goal is met, Kickstarter takes a 5% fee, and Amazon Payments takes another 3-5%. In addition to these costs, the project funder is to make good on the rewards (in this case photo and art prints, DVD, etc.). Costs of printing and shipping will amount to another 5-10%.
This means we're aiming to get roughly 80-85% of our 15,000$ goal, or about $12,000.
If we end up with about $12,000, there will still be a lot to do, namely: hire out the team for video editing and post-production imaging (200h), an original soundtrack and audio engineering (100h), as well as the costs of submissions to festivals and potentially going there.
You can pick from the pictures on ooamerica.com as well as previous projects. If you're not sure which to choose, you can also suggest some general preferences (ie: a state or city, landscape, people or abstract, color or black&white) and we'll pick one out or send you a few to choose from.
Yes, all prints are signed and serialized. This is a limited edition for this Kickstarter campaign. The larger ones comes with a personalized dedication. Thanks!
First, thanks for pledging! Prints of photos and artwork should be available towards the dates mentioned next to the reward. The end of the road-trip (part 2) will roughly coincide with the end of our appeal on Kickstarter. We'll start sending out prints then, the DVD / movie will have to wait till it is edited, closer to summer.
