We fixed the problems with our video!
July 21, 2012
Sorry it took us so long to get this video situation sorted out. This is the video we’ve put up for our Kickstarter campaigns. Campaigns with videos are 30% more likely to succeed so hopefully this will help build some momentum around the campaign. Thanks again to our friends Berenice and Taryn for directing, shooting and uploading this video.
The middle of Kickstarter campaigns (here’s the link to ours) is usually the least active, so we need as much help promoting this as possible. Sorry to litter your dashboard with this stuff. I really can’t wait until the end of August when we’re on the road and able to deliver daily live-coverage, interviews, etc. Reblog this to help make that that happen if you feel so inclined.
We’re going to start in Arizona at the end of August and move on to the bay area by the first week (or second week) in September. Although, after a response to a previous post about us going to Oakland, we are hoping to be in Oakland for first Friday! As we’re traveling, if anyone ever wants to tumblr-meetup, let us know. We love you guys! Seriously. Tumblr has meant everything to me while my politics have radicalized and changed and continues to be my most useful tool for challenging my beliefs as my politics continue to develop. I don’t think I’ve ever been somewhere on the internet or in-person with so many people who have such like-minds & I’m really glad that we’re going to be able to be even MORE engaged with the tumblr community while we’re working on this project.
While in Arizona, we’re hoping to speak with groups who are engaged in latino-rights and immigrant struggles. If you have any recommendations, or know of any groups, send us an ask and let us know. Also, we want to make couchsurfing friends, so if any of you guys are couch surfers, add me (Robert) & later Gracie, when I can find her profile to link you to. Thanks for all your support, it means everything to us. Seriously.
