A True Story About Why We Are. From the creator of Everything is a Remix.

I just completed a project called Everything is a Remix. If you haven't seen it, please do check it out because I think it's more persuasive than anything I can possibly say here.
I'd now like to introduce you to my next project, which, with your help, I'd like to launch this election year of 2012.
It's called This is Not a Conspiracy Theory and it's a multi-part series that will explain the major ideas, events and human quirks that have shaped where we are right now politically. It will center on the United States, but the stories will cover the world and I think it'll have strong relevance regardless of where you live. It will be a series with huge scope, but it'll be rooted in solid storytelling. I'll use history, science, psychology and economics to tell this story and I'll make it relevant, accessible and seriously entertaining.
It will primarily be a work of perspective. It's intended to give you some clarity and some context about where we are now. But it will also be my view of the material. It will have bias. I think it needs some commentary because frankly some ideas are bad, and this needs to be said. I'll demonstrate these things and I'll do it without cheap-shots or demonizing anybody.
I'll also be raising my filmmaking to the highest level I can take it. And I'll do that by hiring the best collaborators I can get. So I'm going to raise my own game, I'm also going to add some all-stars to the team.
The first episode will land before the election. The rest, and I'm not how many there will be yet, will come afterwards.
This will be a truly free piece of media. It will be distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution license, meaning you will be able to use this media for any purpose so long as you provide attribution. You'll be able to copy, redistribute, broadcast and remix to your heart's content.
It will also be open. I will be sharing everything I know and learn throughout production. During the initial development that access will be limited to my KickStarter backers, so you can get involved or you can just see what goes into the sausage.
So that is a quick overview of This is Not a Conspiracy Theory. I hope you'll consider backing this project. I think the series will serve as a productive discussion piece, a good introduction to 21st century politics, and a really compelling piece of entertainment. I think it'll be a positive cultural contribution at a time when we could use it. Thanks very much for your consideration.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
