On A New Trail.
I try and walk around the block each day. Youngest son listens to me jabber jaw. Today it hit me as it has in the past. I research up the yin yang.
There are grants, sponsorships, and other means of acquiring funds to do a documentary.
They are the women in rock or journalism and the endless webinars that give out information but charge a fee. Yes, I fall back on a founder of the original Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine, Larry Lash, who says,
“We just did it… no one else was.”
So, even though I respect all the research and insights I have danced with… I think I will continue to do a documentary my way, the DIY way or Flipside way. Learning as I go and walking down a new path.
I mean marketing and proposals are fun things to do. It gets one all organized and looking crossed eyed. But this documentary begins as a creation story, morphing into the next Flipside Video.
A narrative close to my heart. Sold as a single CD or something… or streamed online for a little fee.
I know I must raise some money for a few items. Like a certain video camera & bundle I am drooling over and some cool editing software. Which suits me fine.
I can do fundraising here right on my WordPress site, in my cave, right next to the sleeping cats and my Praying Mantis tree outside.
