The What and Why
Two things define this project. First, it is a web-series revolving around our upcoming trip across South America for 7 weeks. Second, we purely want to make this for our audience, you all.
This project consists of short episodes produced once a week while we are backpacking across the continent, with each episode telling a new narrative documentary that will captivate our watchers. What makes these episodes truly unique is that we take your inputs and suggestions on what to do, no matter how risky, crazy, or ridiculous, and perform them. These scenes will revolve around a general story that changes from episode to episode. We want this to be more of a narrative than a documentary, because narratives are always much more fun to watch!
How it Works
You upload your ideas for what you want us to do in each city we visit onto our website. We visit our website and decide the day before visiting each new place on a plan of execution for the chosen ideas. At the end of every week, we will put the episodes onto our website to share with the world. It's as simple as that.
What We Have
We've all saved every dime we have to go on this trip. We've already bought our tickets, created a rough itinerary (every true backpacker knows itineraries are just very basic guides that are meant to be roughly followed), planned out all of the finances for the 7 week trip, and have all of our gear ready to go.
What We Need
With all of the investments we've made ourselves we still need some help with getting the equipmment necessary to create this web series properly and professionally. So we are asking everyone to help support our idea in exchange for some really awesome rewards that we're sure you all will love!
How We'll Pull It Off
LOOK OUT FOR OUR WEBSITE WHICH WILL BE LAUNCHED PRIOR TO OUR DEPARTURE!!
So the way we see it, we have a three-tier fail safe system that will make sure without a doubt we dont run into any obstacles.
Tier 1: Niserg's world backpacking experience (Europe, SE Asia, Australia, China, India, etc.) will make sure we don't miss out on anything or do anything too ridiculous.
Tier 2: Mike's video-editing expertise will make sure we produce quality weekly episodes and his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu skills will protect us in case Niserg neglects his Tier 1 goal
Tier 3: Alex's keen ability to constantly produce ridiculously hilarious and amazing moments will help us with the footage. Also, his experience in the US military as an army medic will be used to fix us in case Mike neglects his Tier 2 goal.
With this system, how on earth could we possibly fail? I'll tell you how, we can't ;]
Depending on how succesful this project is, we hope to continue our "Crossing the Border" series to other regions around the world. So as long as you all watch (because we know you'll love it!) we're sure we can keep the shows coming! We want you to see the world through our eyes for all of those people that aren't able to themselves!
