I like to think of this also as an opportunity to include more people who are interested in being involved with a community project.. because it is supported by the community.. and I am now given a chance to transform that into something that is FOR the community.
I also have Limited Edition Prints from 'The Fertile Desert' and there might be some people who would want to grab a print AND support this community project at the same time

but youre gonna need to work on the whole 'whats in it for me' mindset that many will see when youre out there begging for cash.
as is? i dont see much more than a self entitlement project...... perhaps a snazzy video watched on a computer can win over some people, and maybe some people feel that $14000 for a video is actually something the burning man community needs... but i dont see it.
and frankly? i dont care what makes yours different. because at this point, we done seen it all.. we've reached maximum capacity and ya know.. these videos dont change anything and i dont see giving people the warm fuzzies as worth all that much in terms of time/effort... it dont matter how good the video is.
and what do we get?
some bullshit about how its for us, we get to watch it.. once..... twice if we're really damned bored and..... then burning man stays the same as it ever was.
want to do something for the community?
14,000$ coulda bought lotsa /something/ that we could actually use.
theres more to giving back to the community than building some sculpture
or giving out booze
or making some fuckin documentary.
imagine if you used that money to help defray the costs of people who got helicoptored out!!!!!
or for some shit that actually makes a difference.

Hey this fucko spent the kick start on equipment he can keep.. Where it could have been rented at 1/2 price.. Now he want some one to foot the bill so he can come on location. The are photos taken from the air.. They used a kite.. There vidios were great and did not cost the burners at large a cent..
So if any thing. He can't manage money..
