pouringdown: Seven Maps

July 3rd, 2006

We are extremely excited to support Daniel Liss of for his project: "Seven Maps". Daniel found videoblogging while doing commercial video work and went crazy; he just picked it up and ran with it. Here are some great examples of his work: Begin Here, Theory: Practice, and Decision Machine. We want to help fund a game between Daniel Liss and you. We, the community, will raise money AND tell him how to use it. Daniel is willing to take a risk and make videos in any location. Please donate to the project and then contribute your ideas to the Seven Maps Wiki. To avoid chaos five filters/representatives have been chosen to sort through and consolidate these ideas (see explanation below). We think this project has the potential to invigorate the community into active and creative collaboration.

pouringdown: Seven MapsFrom Daniel
Chance. Games. Rules. Challenges. Interactivity. Community. Collaboration.
I’d like to push where I’m going with my work on pouringdown. And I’ve had this idea that I could push my process publicly. I will make seven videos. In the spirit of letting go of the reigns somewhat, the starting point of each of these videos will be a challenge put forth by the contributors to this project. The challenges (or ideas, or restrictions, or rules) can be geographical, social, aesthetic - they can be really anything. The idea is to try to create conditions that could make me think differently - make me create differently. Once a video is posted, the ideas can start coming in for the next. Ideally, each video will lead to the challenges of the next, building momentum and weight over the course of the seven. There will be five human filters sifting through the feedback that comes in, distilling down the challenges for each consecutive piece. They’ll then present them to me. And I’m off again, running. And so on - for seven videos that could take me anywhere. And the idea is that you’ll be right there with me for all of this. Click Here to watch Daniel’s Pitch.

American King- $1000 Funded

June 21st, 2006

American King SuccessWe are thrilled to say that our first project at HMWV has been successfully funded! We’ll be posting a new project the first week of July, so stay tuned!

From Chris Weagel’s first project has been an amazing success. In less than 5 days, over $1000 was raised for the first month of editing/post-production on American King, our new documentary series about Garrett Lambert. American King will begin the week of July 18, 2006, in the Tuesday Featured Series slot at Human Dog. Thanks to all who donated, I cannot stress how grateful I am.

Human Dog: American King Proposal

May 2nd, 2006

We Support This Project
Chris Weagel is one of the original instigators of the videoblogging medium and he has a history of creating innovative works. Since high school, Chris has crafted numerous video series that have built up the Human Dog universe. We want Chris to be able to continue expanding the HD body of work by granting him the freedom to work on it full time for a month. For just $10 from 100 community members, we can fully support his goal while at the same time support the independent, D.I.Y. (Do it Yourself) creativity and production that goes hand in hand with videoblogging. One of our Human Dog Favorites: Click HERE.

American King ProposalFrom Chris Weagel
American King is a new documentary videoblog series from Human Dog Productions. It follows Garrett Lambert (video, video) convicted of embezzlement at 19, through the end of his probation, and out of reality. I found that Garrett’s apathetic attitude to life epitomized my generation’s approach to life. I also found him very funny. American King will be a video blog series with 1-2 videos posted per week, each running between 2-10 minutes. The goal is to end up with between 30-40 videos total. Your donation will allow me to devote a month to editing the first section of American King and get a head start on posting them. Click Here to watch Chris’ Pitch.
