PLAY SHALL RETURN!
We’re very grateful to everyone who supported PLAY, both with pledges and getting the word out. Though we didn’t reach our initial funding goal in this campaign, we’re not giving up! We’re proceeding with conversations for a sponsored production, and if those don’t pan out, we have a retooled production budget plan for another run at Kickstarter. As always, ideas and suggestions are welcome, and we’ll keep our backers and friends updated. Thanks again for everything!
We posted answers to a few common questions about PLAY to our Kickstarter FAQ, so check it out! And add your own questions if you got ‘em.
Teaser trailer for “The Land,” an awesome short documentary about adventure playgrounds. A definite spiritual sibling for PLAY.
I think that as we grow up, trying to navigate the wilds of the adult world, we slowly and steadily lose our sense of wonder. The Romantic poets were all about reclaiming this. And the way to regain it is, of course, by delving into and learning from those who have the best handle on it: children. There’s really no better way to capture a child’s perspective than through, well, their perspective. And that’s what we want to do.
