Freelance journalist Bill Barol (Newsweek, Time, The New Yorker, Slate, Fast Company, Fortune, The Boston Globe, PBS) wants to answer some of the BIg Questions -- questions so big that over a 20+ year career The Man would never let him ask them. And he could use your help. Because while it may be true that information wants to be free, it’s also true that good information costs. Reporting costs. Gear costs. Production and distribution cost.
So you’ll be helping to fund the pilot for a 5-minute web video series, professionally shot and edited, and your pledges will go toward:
Camera and sound equipment
Reporting and production time
Anti-robot cloaking technology
Web design, hosting and bandwidth
Big Questions will have a light touch but a serious purpose: To take a lifetime’s worth of journalistic experience and set it free it for a fresh, inventive run at some of the hardest questions there are. It’s journalism for a new age, a new audience, and new media.
