The Budget

To successfully complete the project, we need to cover our cost of living on the road for one year, as well as funds to buy an RV. Here's what we need..

  • An RV (to live and travel in!)
  • Food
  • Gas
  • Monthly data plan (so we can always communicate via social media)
  • RV maintenance 
  • Emergencies
  • Rewards!

If we go substantially over our goal we will: first use the money to buy higher quality equipment, and THEN if there is enough left over we will go to Hawaii and Alaska.

 What We'll Be Doing

We will begin our journey in May. Our plan is to travel the country visiting the major city in every state. We will interview people on-site in the city asking them questions about The American Dream (what is it, does it still exist, etc). We estimate about a week in each state (with extra time in New York,Texas, and California), so the trip will take us about one year. The final product will be a documentary of all the interviews and stock footage we have collected similar to our Kickstarter video but on a country-wide scale! We will do our best to post three short videos a week on Youtube of what we're doing, and also post daily on Instagram and Facebook. Here's the list of cities we will be visiting (tentatively in order):

 What's the Point?

Our country is an ever-evolving society. The American Dream today is bound to be vastly different than it was a few decades ago. We want to know how it has changed. Does it vary state to state? Do older and younger generations have different ideas? We want you to join us and find out!

Rewards

Since this is a year-long journey we expect to be done filming in June 2018 and ready to ship out the final product in September 2018. T-shirts will be shipped May of this year. As for the "Be in the Documentary" reward, we cannot give an estimated time on this reward until we know what state you are in (continental US only!).
