About

Atlanta is full of artists, and I want to create a documentary series of 25 interviews with artists in their studios around the city. 

Since 2007, I have created more than 100 video pieces about Atlanta's thriving and diverse art scene at ArtRelish.com (also available at YouTube.com/ArtRelish and Vimeo.com/ArtRelish).

The main obstacle to getting more produced more frequently has been the time I have to devote to the project. 

With your support, I can devote myself to Art Relish full time, to produce 25 videos over the next three months and publish two every week. These videos are intended as an educational resource as well as an introduction to Atlanta's artists. 

The videos will be freely available for embedding and viewing across the Web, giving a wider voice to Atlanta artists as well as providing a document of and for the community. 

This group of artists will be drawn from local studio programs, including those at Atlanta Contemporary, the Goat Farm, and MINT's Leap Year program, among others. Funders also have the opportunity to nominate artists (hint!).

These pieces will provide insight into Atlanta artists' lives, motivation, and outlook as they make their way as professional artists. Why do they make art at all? It is also a project for the future, as we look back and assess Atlanta's place in the art world these will be valuable documents to help trace the city's art history.

This is an ongoing series and once this group has been completed, I hope to carry on and continue with further funding. 

Thank you all for your support!

- Jason.

Risks and challenges

I don't foresee any real risks or challenges following successful funding. It's possible that these could take longer than three months to produce due to unexpected circumstances, but any delay would be brief. Your investment here allows me time to devote to the project and purchase the minimal outstanding gear I need.

Another goal of this project is to create an audience expectation of seeing two new videos every week. That habit will help in producing numbers needed to secure future funding to carry on. I have been doing this unfunded for nearly a decade, and it's unlikely that I am going to stop.
