I’m making videos about life in Mexico. I’m trying to get people in the process by contributing ideas, finances and feedback. At the end of this year long project, I'll deliver I final sum-up film.

VanPan from SanFran: For those who know me well or little, I'm a storyteller. Historically it's been songwriting and I love the medium of music, but now I want to engage more with my local environment to create greater education and understanding about interesting topics.

***list of interesting topics below ;-)

The Project : I plan to make content that marries storytelling and facts. These bite sized videos will be light and entertaining. A year from now, we will wrap the project up with a final short film.

The Why: It's engaging, intriguing, and a challenge. I want to do this, and this project forces me to grow creatively, technically and culturally.

The Funds: I'm crowdfunding because it holds me accountable to actually producing these videos. Your support also gives me some emotional encouragement and financial security so that I can devote more time to creating them. If I don’t reach my goal, I’ll still make videos, but they’ll be fewer and more lightweight.

*** Interesting topics are being developed, such as:

  • Luche Libre

  • Mariachi Music

  • Historical figures on the Mexican Peso

  • Perceptions of Death in Mexico

  • Ajijic, the Florida of Mexico

  • . . . and more, based on YOUR input!!!
