AN ODD MANIFESTO
AUTHOR: BEN WALTER
This past month we have been hard at work making our first video, explaining a bit of what ODDFOLK is all about.
We set out to make a film very similar to a Kickstarter video. ODDFOLK needed a video that summed up everything it was about and we plan to try to crowdfund some of our vision, but as we began to plan the film, the Kickstarter formula wasn't working.
One of the reasons the formula wasn't working was our budget. We needed to make a video with no money and only an idea. Those Kickstarter videos are usually made when a business has a physical product or space they can show off and some money to throw at the equipment and other locations. With that in mind, we set off to make a video where I talked about the vision for ODDFOLK. I spent a week or two writing down my thoughts and then met up with our bespoke crew and I free formed the rest.
