If you’re crowdfunding your film primarily to raise money then you’ve probably got your priorities wrong. On the face of it, that might sound counter intuitive, but a panel at VIFF Industry, an adjunct event of the Vancouver International Film Festival, was at pains to point out that in a dash for cash you risk doing nothing more than a glorified online form of “panhandling”.
This is the promo video for a project that I'm getting close to finishing.
The film looks at the lengths that scientists will go to highlight the danger of runaway climate change, in particular University of Victoria climatologist Dr Andrew Weaver’s successful run for provincial office in the West Coast Canadian province of British Columbia.
The video also features Simon Fraser University Environmental Economist Dr Mark Jaccard, one of the more high profile scientists to state that he would resort to civil disobedience to prevent expansion of Canada’s carbon footprint.
