Renegade Inc., the media group that produced the Four Horsemen documentary about the financial crisis, is running a Kickstarter Campaign to raise US$45,000 to underwrite its next documentary.
The Four Horsemen documentary has been an independent media success, with over three million views on YouTube. It has also shown at more than three hundred Q and A sessions in seventeen countries. Ross and Megan Ashcroft, the principals of Renegade Inc., want to produce a documentary for the post-crisis–or rather permanent crisis–world in which we now live. They also plan to follow this up with an independent media platform, to give the public something other than the superficial pap that dominates the media coverage of economics, politics and culture today.
All they need as seed capital is $45,000, and with 70 hours to go they’re almost there–just another $9,000 to go in the next 70 hours. You can pledge as little as $25 or as much as $5,000 (I’ve pledged $500). So if you care about the world enough to read a blog post like this, follow up with a donation to help establish an alternative media voice on economics, politics and culture.
