About this project

I will live as a homeless person for a minimum of 2 weeks with nothing but the shirt on my back and the hidden camera on my face. In hopes to show the true gritty sub culture that is Colorado's homeless community. 

To prove I have the "chutzpah" to do this watch me jump off a building at: Youtube.com/CapnJasBlOg

My two favorite documentary T.V. series are the heartwarming 30 Days and the blunt Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I picture this being a nice juxtaposition of the two. But any fellow video editors know that the final product is usually way different from the initial concept. Ideally, "POV HOBO" will be edited down to just the essential footage: 8-15 minutes.

Here is what I'm saving for:

They need a digital camera to be hooked into, and I'm not sure what the compatibility requirements are. Also, I'm not sure what extra materials like SD Cards will be needed until later. Regardless of how much funding I get, I will fund this project. I am working two jobs and am passionate about this social issue. But I figured, I'd see how much help I could get via Kickstarter. 

Either way, I hope you bookmark this project so you can enjoy the final result. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
