The Freeschool is happy to announce that we are partnering with a Nationwide Film Experience project! The Freeschool has been working very hard to get involved with filming as it is our desire to broadcast freeschool classes by film and by online video so more people of all physical abilities and financial backgrounds located all across Olympia, Thurston County, and the world can have access to those classes 24 hours a day (even in the winter when transportation is difficult)... free of charge!
The project is set to begin filming the second half of the film in Olympia, Washington from March 1st-5th, 2011. This is very exciting for the Freeschool as many people don't have the chance to experience being part of creating a film without prior experience.
The group recently had their project approved by Kickstarter, the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world, to raise funds for this project between now and January 1st, 2011!
Kickstarter has been featured in Wired Magazine, NPR (NPR Online Radio story here and numerous NPR Kickstarter success stories featured here), The New York Times (article here) and many more news outlets all over their world for helping amazing independent, creative projects find funding!
The Freeschool does not require or request anyone to pay for attending this filming experience. It is never a requirement, but if you would like to make a pledge to the pledge drive to ensure that this project finds funding please click here or visit www.InspireNewMedia.org
They have over 1,300 friends and 9 women's equality twitter lists following their Women's equality twitter account!
The Pledge Drive ends on January 1st, 2011. If the project does not raise their funds by that date, kickstarter will not fund the project and kickstarter will return all funds to the people who gave a pledge so your help is greatly needed!
Thank you all! Happy Holidays everyone.
