Scripts are complete, and strategy has begun. I am currently working with sound and game designers to build a truly immersive story.
This project is meant to explore sibling ties, international politics and spy craft, ancient mythology, and the way borders both separate and define us. It is also meant to cross the barriers between fiction podcasts, gaming, social media, geocaching, guerrilla marketing and language. By reaching this $3,200 goal, I will be able focus on building this innovative, deeply personal story.
This crowdfund is also inspired by my work with The Storyteller Project, which is an experiment in our collective investment in the arts. This year’s folk tales are woven in with the same process that builds Project: Borderless. By supporting the campaign, you will also be supporting the creation of modern folk tales for the world we live in.
Stretch Goals & Campaign Risks/Rewards
By reaching the $3,200 goal, I will add additional perks to the gifts. The “Toss a Coin” levels receive all 5 folk tale charms, the “Bardic Gift Box” will include a travel token, and the “Hero’s Journey” will receive a charm tailored to their own set of tarot readings.
Any additional funds raised will be earmarked towards design and production of Project: Borderless.
If we reach the stretch goal of $5,000, I will perform a live show in 2024 with one of the Hero’s Journey participants who has volunteered to showcase her own final tarot reading live!
There is always a risk that production will be delayed. However, I have experience in the fulfillment of multiple crowdfunding campaigns multiple times this size. I also have seven years of experience running campaigns and productions entirely on my own. In fact, all materials for the gift boxes are already collected.
It is also important for me to note that this crowdfund campaign is not directly for this project. It is to give me, the storyteller, additional time and resources to do this work.
