About

Through Livestream Social Media and 4K 360° Camera Technology, we can now come together as a Virtual Global Village. Don't worry, you won't need any special gear to watch or Interact with our Livestream Documentary project. Just come and Experience the Vibes and Interact Live in 360°

We begin our Journey by Recording an Interactive Documentary Experience in 4K 360° Virtual Reality (VR). Try it out with your fingers to navigate the video in 360° VR even without using any special gear. Pretty Cool, yeah?

We are providing this 360° VR Interactive Experience in order to Digitally Preserve the Footprints and Pathways of Legacy Leadership within the Trenchtown Community. Video Credits: Andre Clermont. The Proceeds of this Project will flow directly into the Trenchtown Community as you will be able to watch and/or participate on a daily basis.

🎥🎥🎥 We launch our Interactive project on August 1, 2018, with a Livestream Casting Call within the Community of Trenchtown in Kingston, Jamaica. We will be posting orientation videos for Trenchtown community members to preview in order to help prepare them for the Trenchtown Casting Call.

🔰🔰🔰 We want to try to carefully balance our approach between the historic need for a Comprehensive Trenchtown Documentary and the Independent Spirit of the Individuals within the Community known better as The Birthplace of Reggae Music. We begin our Journey with Trenchtown Artiste Young Garvey and One Nation Music.

😍😍😍 By making this Documentary Interactive, we hope to inspire a more engaged audience, increase community contribution to the narative and foster real-time engagement and interaction, or Real-Time Experiences... with anyone… anywhere.... in the world.

😎😎😎 This project is for Real People who care to watch, engage and/or interact with Real people in Real-time. And as a pilot project for our Global Village Experience we wanted to invite and include everyone from all around the world! BigUp! Yourself & BigUp! Jamaica! Now Let's Make History Together!

Ⓜ️Ⓜ️Ⓜ️ The Data generated from this project will serve to benefit two University Doctoral Research projects and Theses related to the "Trenchtown Talks" Narative and "Transforming Education through Social Media." It will also help serve to further develop our Mobile Application and User Experience.

🎙️🎙️🎙️ We want to begin our journey with this interactive documentary project by empowering people to tell the story of their Trenchtown from their perspective Point-Of-View (POV) with our "Trenchtown Talks" production team in Kingston, Jamaica.

📅📅📅 This is a 30-day Livestream Interactive Documentary Experience integrating livestream social media, 4K 360° & 4K 360° VR, as well as, Wearable 1080p HD cameras.

🌐🌐🌐 We will provide livestream interactive viewer engagement between you, our crowdfunding audience, our production team and the participating members of the community in this InterActive Documentary Experience. 

🌟🌟🌟 If you are an Artiste, Producer, Manager or Performer, this is a great way to get International Exposure while boosting your brand! 

🔥🔥🔥 We are ready to launch this project on August 1st, 2018 with your support. The Director's Cut described in our rewards sections will be out of post-production editing and ready for global release on November 22, 2018, Thanksgiving Day. But Remember, This Globally Interactive Documentary experience lasts for 30 Long Summer Days and 30 Long Summer Nights! Now Let's Make History Together!

Risks and challenges

BigUp! Everyone! We have a very competent team of seasoned professionals assembled with well planned timelines corresponding with two parallel University doctoral research projects and a livestream global audience throughout the 90 day duration of this project. We can honestly say that this project has the highest potential degree of accountability of any other project you will find as you, as an interactive viewer, will be a part of the process or observing the process, all the way through. And as a team I think we can do it without any delays.
