Quick update: WE DID IT! Last night we hit the goal and raised the $35k needed to move to the next step on the project. Thank you so much! I could not have done this without each and every one of you! More updates as they happen...
I'm really excited to share my latest project. Allow me to introduce you to (drum roll please).....
Since 2010, I have researched the Future of Transactions. My scenario work from my research caught the eyes of Peter Vander Auwera and Kosta Peric of Innotribe, the Innovation division of Swift. With their financial support, I made 3 short scenario films and 2 documentaries. I even joined the Innotribe team for a year to help make these visions a reality.
While working for Innotribe, I was struck by the impact my films had on people. When I showed them at SXSW and other conferences, people would come up to me afterwards and tell me how the visions in my films changed their perspective. Over and over I saw people's ideas about the future change after watching my films. They were positive and excited about coming innovations.
It's this change that inspired me to develop the idea into a TV Series for a general audience. I know from a research expert perspective that finanical innovations are exciting. The past 3 years have been filled with many new technology innovations. I know as a futurist, that the future is full of possibilities - but most people don't see how things can work out positively for them. And it doesn't help that we have a lot of negative baggage and fear around the topic of money and finance. I want to change that. I want to put a spotlight on the amazing financial innovations that will improve our lives.
We are living in a fantastic and most abundant time. (Yes, I know there are still problems... my 1st place Award winning paper, The Human Problem addresses this.) I truly believe the future will be even more abundant - if we allow it to be. It is fully within our choice.
With this backstory, I've developed the Future of Money TV Series since February. An international distributor came on board in May and has agreed to distribute the series internationally with your help. I need your support to greenlight the project.
To date, I have self funded all of my research and the development of the series. Innotribe graciously funded the production of the scenario films and documentaries - which were part of the inspiration. Now is when I need to hear your voice.

I'm taking my research of the past 3 years to the next level. But I can't do this alone. Please co-create the future - a future we can look forward to.
