Most documentaries are created (as is this one) in order to raise the awareness an audience that knows little about the topic. Individuals find interest in this kind of thing primarily because the subject matter is of growing importance in the world. What about the fact that people who already have intimate knowledge of the subject enjoy watching it too? That just makes sense. We like being understood, and we enjoy seeing the things we're passionate about be excellently articulated.
As with any good documentary, we will endeavor to take a very specific experience and try to capture it completely, from every possible angle. Then, we will try to communicate what we've captured to an audience that has no language for it. If we've done that, I mean really done that, this will be a great film, regardless of how it is received.
As far as the lamp goes? Of course. You would be correct if the video we produced was attempting to be an end-product film. However it wasn't. It was an intro video, and one that we wanted to get public sooner rather than later. So, we opted for a more humorous, comedic approach rather than a tedious reworking. That being said, there are many reasons those edits made it into the final footage all of which will be easily avoidable in the production of our film.
I think it's a great idea. Even though they have well over the 12k needed to fund the project, I plan to donate before the time is up.
