and to learn from one another. She is now launching a Kickstarter
campaign so that she can continue to tell these aspirational and vital
stories of the invisible superheros who are creating the world we live

Production Coordinator: Emma LaBelle

About the Production:

“My 2009 film We Live in Public warned of what was to come when we trade
our privacy and freedom for online recognition- but in distributing the
film independently, we witnessed the massive impact that social media
had on the film reaching its audience. I began to realize that the
greatest tech-tonic shift in our history was happening.  I wanted to document it, and share the visions of the invisible
superheroes who are designing the world we live in – so that anyone,
anywhere can fulfill their vision, can do whatever they love to do
faster, better, and more efficiently.” — Ondi Timoner

Current Status:

50 episodes in the bag, looking to fund more.
