Master remixer Pogo (aka Nick Bertke) mashes up movies and music to create such YouTube sensations as the Alice Disney remix and the Upular Pixar remix. Having performed for YouTube Play at the Guggenheim Museum and shared his music with over 12 million people online, he’s now transitioning from the silver screen to the world. He envisions a new album that will capture the sights, sounds, voices, and chords of global cultures, so far hitting up New York and Johannesburg with Tibet next on the list, which he’s funding on Kickstarter. Rewards for backing are amazing: $1 for the track, $2 for the track but HD vid download, then working up to a popular $100 combo of track + vid + USB + T-shirt + associate producer credit. Just a few days since launch and he’s got 230+ backers! — Daniella J.

Honestly, before watching this video, I had never really thought much about vintage circuses. Now, I suddenly find myself wanting an entire book of photographs devoted to them — which is exactly what Darran Robinson is promising us in his kooky cool Kickstarter project. I kind of wish he was offering something goofy like clown noses as a reward, but the clever details in his project video (like the subtle vocal effect, which lends an air of magical mysticism to the whole thing) make up for it! Excited to explore this topic, and to see how the finished project turns out. — Cassie M.

“One Square Mile” is a documentary web series which explores the lives of everyday people by the square mile. The variety of life is astounding — imagine going from a hyper-populated urban area, where hundreds of people can co-exist within a single mile, to a vast, deserted regiom of the Nevada desert, where the population is a fraction of a major city. The series has already complete one, award-winning season and the quick glimpses of their work are all enough to pique my curiosity about what’s to come. Very cool!   — Cassie M

Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia — by Adaptable Man LLC

Explorers — true explorers — are indeed a rare thing these days. While most of us will never come in close contact with the unmediated power of nature, Jeff Lowe has become an iconic figure in American climbing, pioneering seemingly impossible routes like the “Metanoia.” After a degenerative neurological disease forced Jeff to quit climbing seven years ago, he’s become the centerpiece of a documentary that will take viewers back to the treacherous and majestic slopes of his original Metanoia route up the north face Switzerland’s Eiger. Reknowned journalist Jon Krakauer covered Jeff’s original ascent, and returns to narrate the film. — Cindy A.

The Fifties: A Tale of Black & White — by Raquel Griffin

Photographer Raquel Griffin has always been influenced by the glamorous style of the 1950s. While inspired, Griffin also felt felt distant from the work, as most iconic images only pictured white women. With The Fifties: A Tale of Black & White, Griffin is re-envisioning the classic style of the 1950s, using only African American models and African-inspired textiles. Her motto and creative inspiration: “Because glamour didn’t only come in one shade…” — Mike M.
