General Support for Let it RIpple: Mobile Films for Global Change
Grant Amount: $50,000, on 6/7/2012
We seek general support to further the reach, scope, and impact of the Let it Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change project, which provides nonprofit organizations across the globe with free short films that engage people in the social, political, and cultural issues shaping the world around us. We will be releasing 20 of these films over the next 4 years, all of which center on human themes such as interdependence, civic engagement, happiness, empathy, failure, wisdom, gratitude, death, and love. The Let it Ripple series uses a new collaborative filmmaking concept that we are calling Cloud Filmmaking: �cloudsourcing� creativity and giving back by offering customized versions of the film to any nonprofit working to make the world a better place.
