Got a stain on your wall? We have a poster you can use to cover it up. Pitch in 25 dollars and you'll get a cool 18 x 24 poster of "Frack U. Mexico." A year ago in Mexico, almost no one knew what fracking was. Then we laughed the alarm bell in this short viral video featuring Texas oilman Joe T. Hodo. (¡thanks to designer Uriel Pérez!)
Nothing says "The U.S. backed Drug War in Latin America must end" like a Spanish-language cover of "A Hard Day's Night." In 2011 we realized that most Mexicans knew more about The Beatles than the history of the Drug War. So we parodied the Fab Four and the absurd story behind the U.S. backed Drug War in our video "¡Narco-Mania!" Give us a $50 gift and you will receive a "¡Narco-Mania!" DVD featuring the title track and a series of other short parodies directed by Greg "Gringoyo" Berger including "¡Narco-Mania!," "Jodido México," and "Spring Breakers Without Borders."
For $75, Joe T. Hodo, President of "Frack U. Mexico" will give you a personalized, four hour tour of Mexico City. (Note: You may experience delays when Mr. Hodo is stopped on the street by angry citizens displeased by his plans to frack Mexico. Bystanders may experience injuries due to hurled projectiles.) Plus you'll get a "Frack U Mexico" poster and a "Narco-Mania" DVD. Thanks!
If you give this much money to help make our film, you'll want someone else besides me to back up the integrity of the project. So all backers at this level will be invited to attend a live skype chat with the international cast and crew of our new film while we are filming on location in Southern Mexico in September. This will be a great way to hear more from migrant organizers and movement participants in Mexico. You'll also get a chance to ask about the production process, and what the participants hope to accomplish. (But we'll die before we give away the plot of the video!) Translation will be provided. You will also receive a poster and a DVD.
Now we're getting serious! If you give $250 or more, I'll spill the beans on some of my secrets. You will receive all of the above plus you will be invited to attend an additional live chat via skype with yours truly on how to make videos about social movements go viral, and why you should try it. A great opportunity to broaden the reach of your movement!
For the amazingly generous gift of $500 or more, you will receive all of the above plus long term mentoring from viral video director to aspiring or experienced viral video journalists over a six month period. Join Greg for a private, 30 minute chat sessions once a week over a six month period as you produce your video. (Then again, if you have $500 to spend, you're probably not a filmmaker or journalist!)
