Hi Frameworks, As much as I often oppose using listservs like this one for self-promotion, I'm writing you today to ask for your assistance. Along with my partner Alexandra Caulfield, I am trying to put together a roving community engagement/documentary project called Canadian Frame(lines), which seeks to elucidate Canadian Identity in the 21st century by providing various smaller communities with analog film (b/w reversal super 8 specifically), equipment, processing, and screening all in one 22' former school bus. All of our workshops are completely free, and we're entirely self-funded.
So this is where the pitch comes in! Canadian Frame(lines) needs $30,000 to take off on schedule early in 2013. We want to raise this money as much as possible through individual contributions (in keeping with the general spirit of the project), so we've launched a campaign on Indiegogo. Check it out at www.indiegogo.com/CanadianFramelines or get more info at www.canadianframelines.com. If you can, we would be eternally grateful for any and all contributions to the project (and I think we have some pretty nifty perks). Another thing that helps a lot is spreading the word, so passing our information on to your friends, colleagues, and family is also immensely appreciated. And we'd also really like to hear what your thoughts are! We've gotten lots of feedback from different people whose expertise lies in the Canadian sociological field of study, but we haven't gotten much from the film community as of yet. To summarize, if you have an interest in any/all of: itinerant filmmaking and exhibition, community-based analog film workshops, Canadian identity, or converted school buses, then please help us get Canadian Frame(lines) on the road! Thanks for your time, Ryder White Co-Founder, Canadian Frame(lines) 604.788.0789 canadianframelines.com indiegogo.com/CanadianFramelines
