The Travelers on USA Projects
I’m happy to announce the first solid steps towards production for The Travelers, an experiment in adapting my methods for exploring truth to an immersive narrative experience. As in my previous work, it is driven by a deep personal connection to the subject matter; in this case, Hospice work. My interest in Hospice goes back to the passing of my mother at a very young age. I’ve always been thankful for the unwavering support of the Hospice workers during that difficult time, and I’m very excited to be exploring the hidden labor of these dedicated individuals.
To fund production of The Travelers, I’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign with USA Projects, a new program offered by the national arts granting organization USA Artists. Though similar to services such as Kickstarter, USA Projects takes a focused approach to crowdsourcing, and only select artists qualify for the program. Once accepted, projects that reach certain funding levels are eligible for additional matching funds, multiplying the effectiveness of each pledge. Your pledge could be the one that qualifies us for one of the available matching funds!
