Identifying Nelson / Buscando a Roberto
A documentary about me and a group of around three hundred people who have been found after disappearing as children during the Civil War in El Salvador. It is a story about a search for identity set across a landscape that obscures the truth of wounds still open a generation after one of the bloodiest armed conflicts of the Cold War.
Initially launched as a Kickstarter project our film while still in development has been getting a lot of positive attention. We are looking forward to releasing part of the film online in the coming months.
A Kickstarter's Guide to Kickstarter
I have used Kickstarter to launch two successful but very different projects.
The first one ran in the fall of 2010 and was called Identifying Nelson/Buscando a Roberto. The purpose of the campaign was to help raise some money so my co-producer John Younger, and I could start working on a documentary film.
The second project was to create an e-book called A Kickstarter’s Guide to Kickstarter. That campaign took place during August of 2011. You can grab a copy of the book at:
