Open Out - a documentary on fablabs empowering their communities

<p>HELLO ALL ! Welcome to our crowdfunding page presenting our <em>documentary project on FabLabs in Africa and South America !</em>&nbsp;Thank you so much for being here and thanks a million should you help us to achieve our objective and launch this great project <strong>&lt;3</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="290" scrolling="no" src=";;;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=giphy" width="435"></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We&#39;re going to meet passionate people who want to change the world out of their garage. We want to understand if the collaborative economy is a viable model for our world. We&#39;d like to understand why the world of &quot;makers&quot; is still so underground, even though there&#39;s more than 600 makerspaces in Europe, and they are super open to all.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As we travel, we will build piece by piece a set of resources out of which our video&nbsp;documentary will be the prime jewel. Our website will relay portraits and interviews of makers and entrepreneurs, and we&#39;ll post podcasts about more general questions on new technologies, the collaborative economy, a peaceful world...</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We&#39;ll be interviewing:</p> <p>- <strong>Gearbox</strong> in Nairobi, Kenya</p> <p>- <strong>Winam Lab</strong> in Kisumu, Kenya</p> <p>- <strong>Ekurhuleni FabLab</strong> near&nbsp;Johannesburg, South Africa,</p> <p>- <strong>FIEMG</strong> in Belo Horizonte, Brazil</p> <p>- <strong>Colectivo Nexo</strong> in Sao Paulo, Brazil</p> <p>- <strong>Mirante Lab</strong> in Sao Paulo, Brazil</p> <p>- <strong>Isvor FabLab</strong> in Sao Paulo, Brazil</p> <p>- <strong>Fundacion FabLab Cordoba</strong> in Cordoba, Argentina</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Who are we ?</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We&#39;re Iris and Joachim, how do you do! We&#39;re two business school alumni, and we met in our school&#39;s audiovisual club, where we learned to shoot and edit films.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Iris is a people person. She&#39;s lives abroad and she came back fluent in four languages (French, English, Spanish and Portuguese).&nbsp;</p> <p>Joachim is super curious, and he finds everything interesting. Just this year, he learned electronics, coding, drawing and Portuguese.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>To round off our four years of business school, and to paraphrase Gandhi, <em>we&#39;d like to be a part of the change we want to see in the world.&nbsp;</em></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>We have an 18.000&euro; budget for the project. Some of our sponsors have already enabled us to buy our first plane tickets and book our first hostels (thank you ! :)).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Thanks to this crowdfunding campaign, we&#39;re like to tackle the 28% of our budget that the following constitute:</p> <p>-&nbsp; &nbsp;Our trips inside the different countries (could be on bicycles, buses or cars, it all depends on you!)</p> <p>-&nbsp; &nbsp;Our filming equipment&nbsp;(among which a camera, two microphones, memory cards, cables, hard drives...)</p> <p>-&nbsp; &nbsp;KissKissBankBank&#39;s 8% commission&nbsp;&hearts;</p> <p>-&nbsp; &nbsp;Our vaccines</p> <p>-&nbsp; &nbsp;The website and administrative expenditures that we advanced</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>All of these things total up to&nbsp;5.040&euro;. We&#39;ll fill in with our own savings if we lack cash, just like we&#39;ll do for our living and flight expenses.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="244" scrolling="no" src=";;;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=giphy" width="435"></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>If we&#39;re lucky enough to&nbsp;go over the 4.000&euro;&hellip;.</em></p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; With 5.500&euro;, we&#39;ll be able to&nbsp;<strong>visit another FabLab</strong> (like Woe Lab in&nbsp;Togo)</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; With 7.000&euro;, we&#39;ll&nbsp;<strong>invest in a better&nbsp;post-production</strong> and better&nbsp;<strong>video equipment</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
