This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wed, March 13 2019 6:34 PM UTC +00:00.
Synthesis is my love letter to video essays and breaking the 4th wall. It will contain a collection of mini-rpgs about creating new meaning from text, looking from different perspectives, and metatextuality, in a 5.5" x 8.5" handmade zine format.
I don't want to commit to revealing what the zine will look like just yet, but I have some really cool ideas for a unique cover for all the physical zines I ship out! I will update with details on that soon.
My stretch goal is to put a few small pieces of writing and art based on playtests of the games, so extra funds will go to paying people for that. I'd like to get at least 3 creators and pay them at least $25, so if/when the project hits its goal I'll start looking into those logistics in earnest.
Risks and challenges
I'm not partnering with any other groups that would complicate this process, so there isn't much to be worried about. The only risk is that I get a bit bogged down in schoolwork this semester, but I'm far enough in my classes now to be confident that won't be a problem. Plus, this campaign will end a few days before my spring break, where I'll have a whole week to get everything printed and shipped!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
