Kickstarter’s rapidly become the crowdfunding platform of choice, with well produced video content noted by veterans as the key to a successful fundraising campaign.
Every January, the company publishes a beautifully illustrated but very static infographic to summarise the previous year’s achievements. This year they’ve chosen to publish this summary, along with some headline projects, as a sequence of still and video images.
Why is this interesting for Pararchive? The Year In Kickstarter report demonstrates a possible template for sharing high-impact narratives, framed with photography and video content.
The end result lies somewhere between Cowbird‘s photo-centric story formats and the New York Times’ iconic Snow Fall demonstrator, but suggests one possible format for the stories that our community groups might wish to create and where different types of content might be drawn from archives and collections to create that narrative.
