About this project
Transformational Festivals are a potent phenomenon blossoming on the west coast and beyond and playing a profound role in hundreds of thousands of people's lives. Our new 4-part documentary video series sets out on a journey over summer 2012, exploring 10 to 12 of the premier festivals of this kind to illuminate this remarkable phenomenon.
Joining the forces of TEDx presenter Jeet-Kei Leung as narrator/host and videographers Syd Woodward (Grounded TV Network) and Akira Chan (Akira Chan Arts), the "Transformational Festivals" series will bridge the gap in articulating the profound nature of this burgeoning movement. The 4 parts explore key themes related to the transformational nature of these festivals, combining Jeet-Kei's insights with inspirational interviews and the evocative, magic moments captured through the Syd and Akira's lens.
This webseries aims to explain this remarkable and important phenomenon while retaining the artistic sensibility and inspired creativity from which these festivals have been birthed in the first place. Our goal is to promote coherency and cohesion among those in the culture while building a bridge of understanding with those outside it--to support growth and expansion while preserving the magic and integrity of this potent movement.
With Jeet-Kei's TEDx talk on the subject surpassing 25,000 views in the 6 months since its release and Syd's collaboration with Jeet-Kei "Revelation on the Dancefloor" passing 13,000 views in less than 3 months, expect this new project to take understanding of this emergent subject to a whole new level.
