Rock in a Hard Place: Good TV meets Crowdfunding

This is a TV show that can turn up the heat for ratings and knock ‘reality’ out of the ring for ‘realism.’ Rock in a Hard Place isn’t pretty eye candy. It’s dirty, messy, and pretty much like twisted real life (just funnier). The script is written by Huffington Post contributor, David Fagin, a New York based writer, producer and musician, and his sister Stephanie, a professor of clinical psychology at Columbia and asks the question, “What if Sid Vicious survived the 70s and ended up with two ex-wives and three crazy kids?” The show is a comedic wake-up call. It features the fictional but oh-so-familiar Jewish punk legend Lance “Lint’’ Jones as he leaves rehab and is forced to live with his mother. It’s not about music (although that’s there). It is about the human element and the desire many feel to reconnect with family after years of massive screw-ups and self-destruction.

Rock in a Hard Place puts iconic fictional former punk rock front-man “Lance” at about age 50. He’s emerged from a decade or two of self-destruction and rehabilitation and is about to try and start over – sober. Only this time he emerges with 2 ex-wives, a couple of kids, and a side-order of dysfunctionality.

If you want a taste of what’s coming, check out the pilot teaser on their Kickstarter campaign. The script has been shopped around and had some heavy-weight interest but no one would commit so the producers are taking it to the street via crowdfunding to raise the $50 thousand (USD) needed to deliver this show for TV. Help them bypass the big studios and get straight to production.

So, what’s the show really about? As the campaign site explains, “It’s a show that mocks and at the same time examines the self-absorbed state of self-gratifying spiteful behaviour of the ‘Me! Me! Me!” reality culture that currently engulfs more than a little of our entertainment…” It’s also about life-long friends, family, and a man who is trying to prove he is still relevant – mostly to himself. Ultimately, it’s about how hard it is for us to forgive each other, but how amazing life can be when we do. Ourselves, included!

There are plenty of star-struck perks waiting for pledges of $5 and up. Get tweets from ‘Lint’ the star of the show, even 8×10 autographed pics. For donations of $100 or more you can get your name listed in the credits. Not to mention a cool keychain with the band’s “the Prix” logo. Want to get closer to Hollywood? For pledges of $250 you can get a personalized cast poster signed by every cast member and your name in the ‘special thanks’ section of the end credits. You’ll also get an MP3 Download. Ready to go all the way? Pledge $1000 or more and get a call from THE Rosanna Arquette thanking you for your contribution. For $10,000 you get to be an “Exec. Producer.” Not only do you get featured credit, a walk-on part for the pilot and you will be invited to a recording session with 80s mega-star Richard Marx (yes, that Richard Marx) as they record the ‘Prix’ songs for the show. Can you say #awesome!

The concept piece is full of fun and colourful characters including two polar opposite daughters: one is a Harvard Law scholar and the other a 15-year old pop-star (aka train-wreck) starlet in the making. Her persona “Shadow” is described on the campaign site as “an out of control Miley on Steroids – over-exposed to a world of money, fame and insincerity.” You’ll also find some aptly named former band-mates and some other colourful characters. Check out all the characters on the campaign site.

The show concept has been teased with becoming a pilot several times but the backers wanted the ‘big producer name’ for association. Despite the amazing script in the Hollywood business it’s about “who’s attached”. That’s why crowd-funding this show makes sense. The pilot can go direct to multiple markets; especially with the iconic Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction, Ray Donovan) producing. With your support, they’ll be shooting the pilot in LA as early as February. Help bring back authentic, complicated and fun characters to TV. It costs less than a cup of coffee to get involved.

Put A Kitchen in Every Classroom The Charlie Cart Project On Kickstarter Through December 5, 2014

(Berkeley, CA) – Educators and activists agree that teaching children cooking skills can make a major impact on their life. But how can you teach children to cook when there are no kitchens, no cooking teachers, and no money to build the programs? That’s the challenge that has vexed Carolyn Federman her entire career as a food educator. With The Charlie Cart Project , a collaboration between Federman (Chez Panisse Foundation) and Brian Dougherty (Celery Design), she has found a way to make hands-on food education possible. The self-contained mobile kitchen rolls from classroom to classroom, and includes curriculum and training designed by The Edible Schoolyard Project, along with a full-range of kitchen tools donated by partners including Breville, OXO, and Williams-Sonoma.

“When cooking is integrated into the curriculum, academic subjects come alive,” said Alice Waters, The Charlie Cart Project Advisory Board. “With The Charlie Cart, children have the hands-on experience of preparing food and gathering together around the table, where they learn essential values of nourishment, communication, and generosity.”

The Charlie Cart Project is just shy of meeting their Kickstarter goal of $40,000 to roll out their pilot program into two California school districts. They need that extra push to fully fund the campaign and get the prototype Charlie Carts into classrooms by January 2015. With the help of their partnership with FoodCorps California and the Community Alliance for Family Farmers, The Charlie Cart Project is poised to make a huge impact on the health, education, and eating choices of a whole new generation.

Background:

After working for 15 years building gardens and teaching school children to cook with food activist Alice Waters, Charlie Cart co-founder, Carolyn Federman, began to search for an easier, more convenient approach to food education – one that didn’t involve fumbling with flimsy hotplates. After teaming up with Brian Dougherty of Celery Design, The Charlie Cart Project was born.

This compact, mobile kitchen is specially designed to create healthy kids through hands-on food education. The Charlie Cart comes equipped with everything needed for high-quality cooking and nutrition education in a easy-to-use, streamlined kit for educators everywhere. Even Michelin-starred chefs would covet this piece of equipment – it includes a cook module with a double induction burner and a Breville smart oven, a grey water pump system, and a full-range of kitchen equipment by OXO and Williams-Sonoma.

The Charlie Cart provides much more than food education. The hands-on experience gets school-aged children excited about eating wholesome, nutrient-dense foods they’ve had a part in preparing, all while reinforcing academic connections to math, science, social studies, and more.

This exciting venture has amassed a renowned group of supporters including Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, and Harold McGee, who sit on The Charlie Cart Project Advisory Board.

About The Charlie Cart Project:

The Charlie Cart Project was founded by Carolyn Federman and Brian Dougherty to make hands-on food education simple and accessible nationwide.

Carolyn worked with Alice Waters for nearly 15 years, running the Chez Panisse Foundation and developing food education programs. She has also worked with Jamie Oliver and Michael Pollan, and was a co-founder of the Berkeley Food Institute at UC Berkeley. She is a mom, with kids in middle and elementary school.

Brian co-founded Celery Design Collaborative, which now has studios in Berkeley, CA, and Paris, France. He’s recognized as a leader in design for positive impact. His work runs a wide gamut — from brand strategies, packaging design, products, and web experiences — focused around enabling sustainability and promoting social change. He is also the dad of a middle schooler.

The Charlie Cart Project is a 501c3 non-profit organization with fiscal sponsorship provided by the Edible Schoolyard Project. http://www.charliecart.com/

Your Spouse Has Cancer, Now What?

Author raises funds to create an educational DVD series, helping spouses of cancer patients find strength, support, and a better understanding of what comes next after diagnosis

SANGER, Calif., November 2014 — What would you do if your spouse were diagnosed with cancer? While there are pamphlets, support groups, and organizations for the patients, where can spouses find answers to their questions? With the help of Kickstarter, author Carson Boss is raising funds to create The Couple’s Cancer Project, an interactive and educational DVD series for couples where one spouse has been diagnosed.

The project came to life after Boss wrote about the confusion and struggles he faced when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. In his book, Your Wife Has Cancer, Now What?, he discusses the emotional roller coaster that followed her diagnosis. With few resources to help him understand, adjust, and prepare for his wife’s cancer, he began to note all the things he wished someone had told him. While the book is written specifically with husbands in mind, the DVD series provides information for couples to draw from together.

“I want to bring the hope and information directly to the viewer,” says Boss. “These DVDs are something I wish I had when I started the journey through my wife’s cancer.”

Using personal experiences as outlined in the book, The Couple’s Cancer Project will help spouses learn how to:

  • Overcome the shock and fear of diagnosis
  • Talk to family about diagnosis and treatment updates
  • Choose the right doctors
  • Give support and know where to find it
  • Understand the cost of cancer both financially and emotionally
  • Continue and nurture their romance
  • Balance a full-time job and new household duties

The series will include 4 DVDs with 45 minutes of content on each disk. Interviews with patients, their family members, oncologists, nurses, and leading cancer experts from the Huntsman Cancer Institute provide a well-rounded look at how to face cancer as a couple. At the end of each chapter is an “Action Plan” and “Check List” for viewers to complete together. This encourages couples to ask questions and implement what is taught.

“Every cancer is different and so is every couple,” says Boss. “These DVDs will be made for couples to watch together so they can stop and discuss certain points. Then they customize their own plan of action in dealing with whatever kind of medical trial they are facing together. Independent of which spouse has been diagnosed, this series will help both husbands and wives. It’s like they’ll have a support group right in their own living room.”

While filming has been completed, raised funds will be used for editing, packaging, and mastering. If you would like more information on the DVD series, feel free to visit our Kickstarter site (see below). If you are interested in seeing this project completed and released, please consider purchasing one of the pledge packages listed in the link:

Filmmaker Seeks To Become Peacemaker

What if we trained peacekeepers the way we train generals? That’s the question that Burundi asked and answered with formal training for government and military leaders on building peace.

Filmmaker Jamil Simon is producing a documentary called Fragile Island of Peace about that effort and raising money for the production via Kickstarter.

Commenting on his reason for making the film, Jamil said, “Peacebuilding efforts are currently stuck in a negative cycle rooted in lack of awareness, that severely restricts their potential. Peacebuilding is not recognized as a viable solution to conflict. To reverse that cycle, we need to use media to promote the great, often heroic, work peacebuilders are doing.”

“We need to connect the work of peacebuilding and peacebuilders with the achievement of peace, in the minds of diplomatic and military leaders, as well as the pubic,” he continued.

“I look forward to the day that we send peacekeepers into conflict areas before we send in bombs or soldiers,” he concluded.

On Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at 1:00 Eastern, Jamil will join me for a live discussion about his new film. Tune in here to watch the interview live.

More about Spectrum Media:

Spectrum Media has made award-winning documentary and educational films on a wide range of topics that have been broadcast on PBS and commercial TV stations and have been screened in schools, colleges and other venues. Recently, we produced several award-winning videos in the Central African Republic for USAID to promote a new methodology for affirming property rights for artisanal diamond miners. These videos are now being used in programs worldwide. For over 20 years we collaborated with Harvard’s Center for Teaching and Learning on a series of videos on college-level teaching that are distributed nationally and internationally. We also have broad international experience designing multimedia public awareness programs to promote reform in more than 20 developing countries. We have promoted conflict resolution skills in Jordan, sustainable agriculture in Malawi, crisis communications in Haiti, democracy in Mali and water conservation in Tunisia.

Jamil’s bio:

I have spent 40+ years of working in media production and public communications. I’ve spent 25 years designing innovative and content-sensitive public awareness programs to support environmental, social, and economic reforms in developing countries. The work has given me opportunities to design programs that use media tools in creative ways to support reform in different domains and challenging situations.

Currently, we are in the early stages of production on a documentary about peacebuilding in Burundi, called Fragile Island of Peace. It will tell the story of 10 years of work training over 8,000 Burundian leaders from presidents, generals and parliament leaders to police chiefs and rural mayors in conflict management and leadership skills. Our aim is to tell the stories of the individuals who participated in the process and to see how their personal transformations affected the nation.

In April of this year, I collaborated with the Alliance for Peacebuilding to put together a daylong workshop called Under the Radar that focused on creating a global communication strategy to significantly elevate awareness of peacebuilding as a practice, and as a viable alternative to military solutions to conflict. We convened a high level group of peacebuilders, media producers, broadcast and print journalists, philanthropists and others to develop plans to use media to explain peacebuilding—what it is and how it works—to leaders in diplomacy, development and the military, as well as to the general public. Our event was very successful and we are now planning follow up events in NYC and LA in the fall. Making our documentary, Fragile Island of Peace, is an important step in this process.

Mouse Ver 2 Is a Revolutionary New Re-Imagining of the Traditional Mouse Peripheral

The mouse has long been the control tool of choice, but the traditional design has come under fire in recent years. The palm down position necessary to operate a traditional mouse creates unnatural torque on muscles and joints in the arm, contributing to chronic pain and fatigue for many users. A new device dubbed Mouse Ver 2 eliminates this issue because it enables users to operate the mouse in a variety of positions. The Mouse Ver 2 is conceptually similar to using two legs to move, while the conventional mouse is limited to single leg mobility.

The Mouse Ver 2 has unique design that allows users to operate it in the traditional, palm down position. However, the Mouse Ver 2 can also operate in a palm up position, with the thumb controlling the mouse via a catpad. This catpad is similar to a touch screen of a mobile device or laptop, but possesses greater responsiveness and more functionality. The catpad will also serve as the interface for smart televisions and mobile devices like iPhones. The revolutionary design of this catpad enables users to move across a screen with 360 degrees of freedom and mouse-like speed.

Using this innovative design and performance, the Mouse Ver 2 will soon become the peripheral of choice for office and technology professionals. However, the Mouse Ver 2 is still in development and requires additional funding to enter mass production. The Mouse Ver 2 production team has sponsored a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to secure $55,000 necessary to fund the initial production phase. In return for supporting this project, backers may receive rewards like the Mouse Ver 2 for only $69 (a $30 discount) prior to its retail launch. Certain backers may also obtain representative or official sponsor status.

Help Those Who Are Coping With A Cancer Diagnosis

Familius is trying to help families who struggle with the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis and they need your help! They are raising money on Kickstarter. Recently, I caught up with Christopher Robbins to learn more about his work; here’s what he told me:

What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?

A cancer diagnosis effects more than just the patient. It effects their entire family, especially their spouse who is just as shocked and scared as they are. The spouse will have questions they need answered, and fears they need addressed.

The Couple’s Cancer Project will do just that and become the resource to help them know what to expect when the unexpected happens. A DVD series (4 disks that are 45-60 minutes long) will answer questions many spouses have. With expert interviews and interactive portions, couples will be able to work together and plan the best ways to handle the changes in their lifestyle that come with cancer. It will become a support to help them as they journey through cancer as a couple.

How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?

We are raising $15,000. The filming for the project is complete, but the funds are needed to cover the costs of video editing, DVD packaging, and DVD mastering.

The project launched yesterday, and we’ve raised $595.


Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?

Based off the book, “Your Wife Has Cancer, Now What?”, The Couple’s Cancer Project will help the spouses of recently diagnosed cancer patients. While cancer patients have hotlines, therapy groups, and organizations created to support them, their spouses need help too.

This project will be a resource guide for the spouses as it discusses their unanswered (and sometimes unasked) questions. The DVDs will help spouses understand how to:

  • Overcome the shock and fear of diagnosis
  • Talk to family about diagnosis and treatment updates
  • Choose the right doctors
  • Give support and know where to find it
  • Understand the cost of cancer both financially and emotionally
  • Continue and nurture their romance
  • Balance a full-time job and new household duties

What rewards, if any, are you offering to your supporters?

  • Name listed in the DVD credits as a project supporter
  • Copies of the book “Your Wife Has Cancer, Now What?” signed by author Carson Boss
  • Digital copies of the entire series
  • Physical copies of the entire series
  • Four book titles involving cancer and terminal illness from Familius: “Your Wife Has Cancer, Now What?,” “Chemo-Therapist,” “Refined by Fire,” and “Life Happens.”
  • A donation of the entire series to an organization or hospital of your choice

Help The Helper Get To Nepal To Help

Sara Waugaman is trying to join a service expedition with CHOICE Humanitarian to Nepal and to extend her time there volunteering for another NGO. She is raising money on DepositAGift. Recently, I caught up with Sara to learn more about her trip; here’s what she told me:

What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?

I am crowdfunding to go on a humanitarian expedition to Nepal with CHOICE Humanitarian. This opportunity not only directly benefits the communities we work with while in Nepal, it also further develops my background with poverty alleviation efforts, which global extreme poverty alleviation is one of my greatest passions. I intend to pursue it as my life’s work. This past year and a half, I have had an incredible experience working with CHOICE Humanitarian at their U.S. headquarters. Participating in this expedition will take my experience full circle by allowing me to see the entire process from fundraising to the execution of projects in-country. Gaining this experience will thus not only benefit the Nepali people we will work with, but also all of the individuals I aspire to help in the future.

3b091b8

How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?

I am just over a week away from launching my campaign, so I have not yet raised any money. I am hoping to raise $6,000 which will cover the expedition, flight, living expenses for the time I will be working with a local NGOs after the expedition, and the laptop I will use for communication, reports, and other research both in Nepal and during my time in the Peace Corps for which I have just applied.

Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?

I am trying to help those who haven’t been dealt the best hand in life. These are individuals that struggle to have their basic needs met. The goal is to help these individuals help themselves by working with them as opposed to for them which causes the all too common aid phenomenon of dependency. While on the expedition, we will be working with the villagers of the communities CHOICE works with.

What rewards, if any, are you offering to your supporters?

I have offered rewards as a way to help stimulate excitement and make my contributors feel more connected with the expedition. Contributors are still free to donate without any amount without a reward. The reward opportunities include, at the lowest, a pair of handmade earrings by me. Making handmade, beaded jewelry has always been a passion of mine and it is a great chance for contributors to both donate and receive a gift to give for a loved one for the holidays. This ties in with another reward I have which is a unique, handmade, beaded necklace with beads I will bring back from Nepal. Beyond the jewelry I will create, I have rewards which include Prayer Flags, Prayer Wheels, Nepali hats, and a unique, Nepali gift I will find once in Nepal for a donation of $300. These items are all realistic to bring back with me, thank the contributors, give them a taste of Nepali culture, and hopefully serve as a reminder of the value of humanitarian efforts.

Seattle Startup Launches Crowdfunding Campaign For Organic Waste Biofuel

Seattle, WA, USA, 17 November 2014 – Vitruvian Energy, a Seattle-based Social Purpose Corporation, has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its EEB biofuel. This biofuel can power a vehicle, blend with gasoline and diesel, or produce clean electricity.

EEB is made from organic waste materials that are currently under-utilized as a potential source of renewable energy, including sewage treatment biosolids, agricultural by-products such as corn stalks and rice straw, and animal waste from ranches and dairies. These organic waste sources have the potential to make the United States a net energy exporter, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and dramatically lower our carbon footprint.

Vitruvian Energy’s initial source material for developing EEB is sewage biosolids, the carbon-rich, dirt-like organic material that remains after wastewater is treated. By using biosolids as the energy source, every community has the starting material to produce clean, affordable, renewable energy.

As we face the challenges of climate change, multiple renewable solutions are needed to replace the energy we currently generate from fossil fuels. The EEB biofuel complements other types of renewable energy, such as solar and wind, by producing energy 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, because EEB can blend up to 20% with gasoline and diesel or be burned cleanly for electricity, it integrates with our existing energy infrastructure.

EEB is backed by 5 years of research and development, including grants from the National Science Foundation and the California Energy Commission.

The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will allow Vitruvian Energy to build a pilot EEB production facility, use EEB-infused diesel to power a vehicle, and demonstrate the economic and technical value of EEB in real-world conditions. As a licensed Washington State Social Purpose Corporation with a triple-bottom-line approach, Vitruvian Energy is committed to bringing this renewable energy breakthrough to communities everywhere.

Sensor Device Takes the Guesswork Out of Tracking Your Valuables

FYI sensors, which inform you when things move, get wet, or get too hot or cold, launches Indiegogo campaign.

PORTLAND, Ore. (November 18, 2014)FYI Devices announces a product that keeps personal belongings safe by keeping you informed when something unexpected happens. FYI sensors, which became available for pre-order on Indiegogo for 45 days beginning Tuesday, November 18th, are designed around the simple idea of sending immediate notifications to people when something they care about moves, gets wet or goes above or below set temperature parameters.

“We designed FYI sensors to give you essential but basic information about the things you care about,” explains Jon Maroney, FYI Devices co-founder. “With a series of FYI sensors placed on doors, windows, basement floors and under sinks, one can easily create a personal home security system at a fraction of the cost of alarm equipment and with no monthly fees.”

Whether for a primary residence, vacation home or vehicle, FYI Devices provides a versatile security system without the monthly monitoring fees. Sensors are turned on and off from a users phone and alerts are sent when something changes so they can respond immediately. The system is based on common Internet of Things (IoT) standards and has a range of up to 150 meters (over 3 times standard WiFi range), providing a much larger coverage area and greater reliability than BlueTooth or WiFi.

The standard FYI Devices Starter Kit comes with a base station that is connected to an Internet router, 3 multi-purpose sensors and an app for iPhone and Android OS devices. Up to 100 additional sensors can be added to an installation. If a door opens, the user receives a text message saying “FYI – your back door moved.”

FYI Devices was formed by a team of entrepreneurs, engineers and product designers who have designed and launched successful products for companies such as Nike, 38 Zeros, Handmark, FreeRange, StoryCode, Logitech, HP and Dell.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch the campaign to fund this innovative security device,” says Maroney. “With growing consumer interest in accessing updates on your home and valuables when you’re away, FYI sensors are a reliable, easy-to-set-up solution to prevent damage to personal belongings in a way that has never been available before.”

For more information and to follow updates, follow FYI Devices on Twitter and Facebook.

About FYI Devices

FYI Devices creates sensors that track and send mobile alerts about motion, liquid accumulation, and temperature changes in your primary residence, vacation rental or vehicle. FYI Devices’ proven technology provides versatile and easy entry into element alert systems without the expense or infrastructure of a hard-wired system. FYI sensors are available for pre-order Tuesday, November 18th, 2014. The company’s corporate headquarters are located in Portland, Ore. For more information, visit www.FYIdevices.com, and find us on Twitter and Facebook.

Giving Back:

FYI Devices has partnered with Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East by donating 2% of the funds raised from the Indiegogo campaign. Habitat is one of the only organizations that offers homeownership opportunities to hardworking families making as little as $20,800 (for a family of four). This is done through a hand-up, not handout model in which homeowners help to build and then buy their home from Habitat.

Delightful Video Lesson Uses Animation and Music to Teach Children the Alphabet

Children around the world are the same in many respects; they often don’t want to learn and would prefer to be entertained. The new video “Sunny, Funny ABC’s” uses captivating stop-motion animation along with singing and dancing characters to help young children quickly grasp the fundamentals of the English alphabet. The film has some of the most delightful characters that will immediately entrance kids, like Awesome Beetle, Royal Spider and Yellow Zebra. These colorful and humorous characters will help keep the attention of young viewers while imparting the basics about the alphabet.

Created by Indra Sproge, “Sunny, Funny ABC’s” is a three minute video that uses plasticine figures in stop-motion animation. Each character and environment is carefully created by hand and manipulated frame by frame to produce the illusion of action. This is an extremely time and labor intensive form of animation, but has proven to be especially effective in maintaining the interest of young viewers. Indra and her team are close to completing “Sunny, Funny ABC’s”, but still require assistance from the public to finish this project.

In order to complete “Sunny, Funny ABC’s”, the production team will need $22,000. These funds will help hire animators and digital designers who will add the final touches to the film. In return for supporting this project, you may receive perks like video downloads, invitation to the Opening Party, a “Sunny, Funny ABC’s” book, film credits, a personalized character in the film, or a dinner with the team.
