We launched #IamOrion alongside the crowdfunding campaign at the REACT Future Documentary showcase and at i-Docs 2014. This led to a flurry of mask wearing, photos of which have been uploaded via the hashtag to the tint site. At the moment this sits independently of the Orion the Movie website (which connects directly to the campaign) but this will change soon once 383 project has completed the development work. The crowdfunding campaign runs through to 17th April and is a key piece of the jigsaw to move this project forwards. So please do back us and share round your networks.
Our project has evolved from being about creating an on-line portal through which to crowdsource archive material from Orion fans into being a site, which extends and deepens the core themes of the film in new and exciting ways. This post will examine the processes that we have been through to reach this position, starting with our work with Tint and ending with our current project plan.
To help the Future Documentary Sandbox projects make the most of their amazing prototypes, REACT brought in Festivals specialist Liz Harkman to the team. Here she reflects on their experiences at the recent Sheffield Doc Fest:
