What does your investment pay for in Lunch Love Community?
You may wonder, as I often do when I “kick in” to projects I like, where is my money going?
For the (8) webisodes this $9,000 will help us pay professionally for:
(1) film editor for 8 weeks
(1) online community manager + web designer for 4 weeks
(1) sound and music designer flat fee
(1) production manager (editorial, web + outreach) for 8 weeks
(1) web programmer and technical assistance flat fee
(1) simple animation flat fee
I just cherry-picked some line items from the budget to show you some of the team members (as hard-working Bay Area freelancers) who will need to be compensated for their work efforts. (Please note that the producers are not on this list!)
When our Kickstarter campaign ends on Monday morning, June 7, we will be able to prove to other funders and donors that yes, ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE came in as backers of this new social media experiment! Honestly, it amazes me to this day, and I am energized.
It makes me excited to think that we are part of the next generation of media makers experimenting within this new digital space, and doing what Clay Shirky writes about today in the Wall Street Journal -- “Does the Internet Make You Smarter?”…
“The task before us now is to experiment with new ways of using a medium that is social, ubiquitous, and cheap, a medium that changes the landscape by distributing freedom of the press and freedom of assembly as widely as freedom of speech.”
