Humanity.TV today launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund more filmmaking teams to continue documenting fascinating local stories around the world. The team hopes to count on the backing of the travel community to help create a one-of-a-kind interactive tablet app to showcase its videos in a contextualized experience. It also hopes to attract top filmmaking talent from around the world to continue raising the quality of its production and give the big travel brands a run for their money. From their Kickstarter page:
Humanity.TV aims to create a series that shows what truly makes travel special – the people you encounter who create lasting experiences – rather than showcasing a bubbly host at a luxury resort.
We want to expand our filmmaking teams and reach different parts of the globe to tell even more authentic, local stories. To help tell these fascinating stories, we will also be getting the community involved by putting the storytelling capabilities directly into the hands of the subjects; we’ll pass out cameras and allow the subjects to tell their own story – in their own words and on their own time.
We hope you’ll join us in redefining travel shows for a new media audience! Become a backer or tell a friend by visiting their Kickstarter campaign here.
