FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: What are the Participant costs?
A: We want to be sure to pay the participants what we can in exchange for their time and talents. We began paying each participant $500 (the Veteran, designer, photographer, and videographer). We found difficulty in finding videographers for that amount because shooting and editing requires so much time that even those we truly believe in the cause just weren’t able to dedicate that much time to make it. Tyler decided that he could photograph each project himself in order to put that money towards finding a videographer to document the powerful collaborative process, so now we pay $1,000 for a videographer since that is one of the most moving aspects to share each Veteran’s story.
Q: Why is the total project goal $250,000?
A: In addition to the project costs to conduct the tour, we will also have costs after the project is complete for the design, production, and post-production of the tour’s final assets: a collection of American-made products, coffee table book, documentary film, and traveling museum exhibit.
