Hello Friendly Backers!

Humanity.TV is plugging along. We're getting ready for the launch of our first issue (Iceland) by retooling a bit of the app and making it as awesome as we possibly can. We're very excited the direction the app is taking and believe the content is some of the strongest stuff we've ever shot and edited. Excited to show it to all of you.

We're aiming for an early March launch of the app, but make sure you sign up to be notified when we launch. You can do so here: http://humanity.tv (you can also watch the series preview there as well).

Thanks again for all of your support! Can't wait to drop our app on the world. Thanks!

Update #4

Prototype App & Issue Preview!

Hi Backers! 

Humanity.TV is motoring along. We've been working on getting the app release ready as we finish all of the content from our first issue: ICELAND.

We currently have a prototype version of the app ready but are fine tuning the design and functionality to make sure it makes some waves when it's released. We'd love to get it out early next year, with content that totals 12 short documentaries on Icelandic locals, 24 photo essays of awesome Icelandic locations, and more than a half-dozen videos of killer Icelandic experiences (Snowmobiling? yep. Soaking in the Blue Lagoon? You betcha. Scuba diving in nearly-freezing waters? For sure.)

For a preview of the forthcoming Iceland issue, check out our preview video - shown to only you, dear backers:

Thanks again for all your support and we hope to get the app to you as soon as we can (and follow that up with more awesome video content from around the world).

Update #3

App Update and Preview!

Comment

Hey Kickstarter backers! We've been hard at work creating content and moving forward with the full production on the HumanityTV magazine app!

Here's an update on what we've done since our Kickstarter project wrapped:

- We hired an awesome designer and awesome developer to help with development of the iPad magazine app that will be the first of its kind. We hope to have a working model ready in the next month or so, which we're excited to show off and have our Kickstarter backers test.

- We visited Iceland to create the content for the first issue of the magazine app! We filmed over two dozen videos and took hundreds of photos. We're currently in the editing process to create all the short docs, videos, and photo essays that will make it into the issue! We filmed a variety of fascinating people, such as the stone harp maker for Sigur Ros, a scuba diver and spelunker, a worker at a geothermal energy plant, the entire band Nora, and plenty of others! 

We also filmed a fly-fishing excursion in a near blizzard. We wanted to share an exclusive preview of all the Iceland content with our Kickstarter backers, so here is a first look! https://vimeo.com/70651143 (password: HumanityTV).

Thanks again for your support and we'll check back in soon with more updates, previews, and more. Thanks!
