As we were planning our grand opening event, I received an e-mail from a guy named Chris. Chris talked to me about a documentary he and several other people were filming, and they wanted to come to the QC Co-Lab to feature our space. Not one to turn down free publicity, it was an easy choice to give them the green light. I had no idea what kind of professionalism, enthusiasm, not to mention being right cool people. That iPhone 4 wielding video crew was Electromagnate (@electromagnate,http://www.electromagnate.com)
Armed with steady cam mounts and tripods that work with Apple’s latest phone and a desire to shed light on a rapidly growing ethos, the crew of Electromagnate is working their tails off in order to tell their story. Their documentary, “ReMade: The Rebirth of the Maker Movement,” aims to reveal that we don’t have to live in such a disposable society, and that your local technophiles not only can, but would love to give back to their community, and society as a whole.
Electromagnate could use your help though. They need people that care to have their story told to help them on their quest to travel across the country to various makerspaces, hackerspaces and events, as well as purchase some new equipment to finish recording. They’ve set up a Kickstarter project where you can hear a message from them, view the current teaser trailer, and donate to their cause HERE (http://kck.st/dszYbf). For your generosity, Electromagnate will thank you with a present based on your donation.
