After having gone through a rough year, I found myself lost, stuck, and not feeling happy. I started questioning everyone's happiness, so I initiated a survey meant to find out how other people feel "offline" - the real people outside social media. The results were great, well from one point of view, because it proved that we're all afraid to show online our sad side.
So I decided to go deeper and talk to people about a topic that not many feel comfortable approaching: sadness. And here we are today. I started a Crowdfunding page (https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/i-am-sad) meant to help me make a documentary about sadness - "Allow me to be sad". I plan on buying equipment and travel to different countries to interview people about what feeling sad means to them.
I want to explore the other side of things and challenge these beautiful concepts of happiness and sadness, as two feelings that are both parts of a perfectly normal human being.
Allow me to be sad!
The budget for this project goes to:
* Video equipment so I can film this documentary
* Cover travel expenses (for interviews)
* Hire someone to help me with post-production work (editing and all that jazz)
* Submit this documentary to film festivals
Because I want to give something back as a thank you for your donations, I am making these little woollen berets. Choose a reward to get yours :)
Thank you very much. Keep up with me on social media: @roxialbescu or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
