We are embarking on an adventure around the United States to film new youtube videos and meet up with our fans. Three filmmakers will be cramming into a small car with a couple cameras and driving over 10,000 miles to create new youtube videos. But we need your help to do it! Sure, we need to raise a little money for gas and food but more importantly, you can help us plan our travel route!

HOW TO JOIN: 

Our driving route is still being determined and our trip depends on you. If you live near one of the cities we are visiting and would like to host us for a night (AKA, letting us take a shower and sleep on your couch or living room floor) fill out the form on the www.whereiszach.com website.  If that site is slow because of the traffic, hit the form directly here

THE ROUTE:

THE MISSION:

We’ve been in Los Angeles for the last five years in film school and we want to change up the scenery, locations, etc. We are also young filmmakers that want to see and be inspired by the world, and this is the first step. Next year we plan on traveling the entire globe on a similar mission to meet with fans and make new videos. We are excited to meet up with our fans and even have you help out on the film sets. You could even write one of the videos that we shoot or let us use a cool vehicle, prop, location, costume, or building that you have access to. 

I've made pledges for other kickstarter campaigns, it’s easy! Just click the reward you’d like to receive and kickstarter will take you through the quick and simple process with Amazon. Money or no money we will make this project happen because we’ve got the vision and we’ll do whatever it takes to film these videos, even if it means sleeping in our car. We will not be indulging ourselves in fine dining or staying in motels, this is guerilla filmmaking at its finest. 

EXAMPLE OF OUR VIDEO STYLE:

These are just a few examples of the type of videos that we make for our youtube channel.  We also will be creating behind the scene videos and teaching short film tutorials along the way. 

CREATING THE VIDEOS:

We have planned to shoot at least 6-10 new videos during this trip. The videos will range from 2-5 minutes in length. Most of our videos carry the theme of "What if?" What if kittens had light sabers or what if mini RC tanks really had full fledged battles. Our new videos will carry this theme throughout them as well. We've got a handful of videos planned and props to bring along the way but some of the videos will be created with you. We have opened a website where you can submit video ideas and sign up to help us film. 

Risks and challenges

There's always the chance of a fender bender or flat tire along the way. But we are looking forward to meeting all of you that have enjoyed our videos. We are excited to hit the roads and meet up and film with you all.
