About this project
What We're Doing…
We're raising funds to produce a City 2.0 documentary! The plan is to take all 10 Principles of Burning Man and see where those Principle's marry together with tangible examples in the real world. We'd then want to take the documentary a step further so that people will know how they can take their own step to help shape a better environment for themselves to live in.
Why We're Doing it...
We're super passionate about exploring the City 2.0 concept and seeing how we can engage with each other & our environment in a more sustainable & harmonious way.
The project started as an environmental documentary based on the Leave No Trace Principle, and to reach our audience effectively we decided to film at Burning Man in Black Rock City - an incredibly vibrant and creative environment where the Leave No Trace philosophy is intrinsic in every day life.
So last year we began a self-funded reccy throughout Europe & at Burning Man, but as pre-production's continued, it's become clear that often when the Leave No Trace Principle is successful it's because it's being applied alongside other Principle's. This became even more apparent earlier in 2012 when the scarcity of Burning Man tickets showed the importance of the "Radical Inclusion" Principle being balanced against the other 9 Principle's of Burning Man in order for Black Rock City to work.
Who's Presenting the documentary?
Our Presenter Dom Butler is a seasoned Burner & globe trotter as one half of the DJ duo the Stanton Warriors. A super intelligent soul, Dom's visited some of the most interesting communities around the world and his direct experience and passion for the City 2.0 concept makes him perfect for the role.
What's the Output?
Our City 2.0 documentary will address the 10 Principle's of Burning Man and their application in the real world in a succinct and creative way. We'll be Tweeting & Instagram-ing throughout the making of the film as well as posting behind the scene's videos of the stellar personalities and community representatives who're set to feature in the documentary.
We've had the full support of the Burning Man Organisation since the beginning of the project - they LOVE the concept and want to see this film made as much as we do.
Can I Gift an Incentive?
Of Course! If you'd like to donate and give the reward to someone else, please go through the regular donation process then drop us a line to let us know the contact details of the person you'd like to receive the reward.
Can I Increase my Pledge?
OF COURSE! If you'd like to increase your pledge amount, sign into Kickstarter, visit our campaign page, click "Back This Project", then "Manage Your Donation". Enter a new amount or choose another amount.
What happens if we weren't to reach our target?
Sadly the documentary wouldn't be made in the same way as written above. But we're so passionate about the concept we'd continue to seek funding elsewhere.
What happens if we to exceed the goal?
This would be awesome! If our target is reached, Kickstarter will give us all the funds we receive before the deadline which means we'll have much bigger & better opportunities for outreach.
If I donate when can I redeem the incentive?
If we don't meet our target we can't produce the incentives. If we DO meet our target we'll produce & plan date specific incentives at the beginning of 2013 :)
Where does the money go?
After Kickstarter's fee, all the money goes directly to the film's budget to make the film. Every last cent.
