Have you ever heard an argument and thought "that doesn't sound right, but I'm not sure why"? My series of videos should help you out.
The purpose of this project is to produce a series of short videos (to be offered on Vimeo and/or YouTube to start, but with possible distribution in the future) explaining logical fallacies in a fun and informative way. Each video will be between 2-4 minutes long and will concentrate on a single fallacy. The arguments used as examples will be completely made up and will not be related to real-life debates; I feel it is important to the viewer to concentrate on the construction of the fallacy, and not the content of the argument.
I have an all volunteer cast and crew; this money is to go to any or all of the following: location fees, equipment rental and food to feed the cast and crew for a two-day shoot with the purpose of creating the first five videos. Anything left over will go towards future shoots.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
