Hey workers, I am trying to get several grants for a new film I am developing, but most of the applications require non-profit status or partnership. I was wondering if anyone knows of a non-profit film organization that I could team up with so I could apply for these grants. I would work out some sort of deal to cut the board a part of the check. I am located in San Francisco, but I am not sure that matters... If any one has any advice or could point me towards an organization that could help out it would be much appreciated.
I plan on living over the next year or so with several facebook, googlers and a variety of other start up web based executives and their families ( I have already gotten permission from several people). I am fascinated with a life that is so invested in an abstract and infinite space. How has this lifestyle changed the poetic web of associations in these families. What is intimacy now? How has this, and to a larger extent non-privacy and the internet in general, play into how someone engages with nature. What is a forest now? How is language used and where does perspective lie when someone invests so much time creating these two online. Some of the people I would be living with develop the invisible functions that limit and streamline our everyday internet use, from the push for localizing personal internet searches so that the internet 'gets to know you' to defining large masses of people on patterns that confuse individual identity with projections of identity. Most importantly this project will remain more as poetry than documentary, churning and pulling apart some of these tensions as opposed to observing as a static web-camera does. In order to address these ideas I have started to collaborate with several dancers and other experimental film-makers improvising and exploring different processes on going about this project. And before I actually start production I'll need some financial support. Thanks for any advice or criticism! Too much love, -- cArl Elsaesser 207-607-2610 www.carlelsaesser.com Please consider supporting the newest film.
