Newcomers need education to understand the system + recognise scams. Lack of content on real world use cases explaining the vision + basics.
Professional educational series attract proposers, advisors + voters to learn about Cardano + Catalyst, increasing meaningful participation.
This is the total amount allocated to Blockchain Class by adatruth.com
This documentary series is about the fundamentals of Cardano explaining the real basics combining real life use cases where possible.
It is intended for newcomers. People with zero-knowledge about Cardano and blockchain in general.
We are filming in the studio in Prague, Czech Republic. It will be combined with online interviews as well. We expect the impact of the project mainly in Czech Republic. Let's start locally and slowly build-up towards global impact.

One of the goals of this challenge is to share stories about Cardano throughout the world. The Blockchain Class aims to do exactly that.
Distribution Option 1: We are actively trying to reach Czech television with this project. So one possibility is to broadcast the results there. That's the best option, but I can't guarantee this yet.
Distribution Option 2: The videos are distributed on our website via Vimeo and then organically to the viewers.
I might need help here. In essence I'm a documentary filmmaker so I can create the content, but I need a marketing specialist who knows how to deliver the videos to a wider audience.
As in any documentary / educational programme the challenge is to find the right people for the interviews and showing the stories that resonates throughout the community.
That's tricky, but I believe we are experienced enough to provide the right content. Czech Republic and Prague especially is a crypto friendly place. It's a home of Satoshi labs - company bringing Trezor. We have lots of developers, builders and a strong Cardano community as well. So I believe there are stories to cover here. Let's start locally and slowly build-up towards global impact.
We are currently seeking funds for 3 episodes (5-8 minutes long each)
The first episode is featuring Czech Cardano Ambassador Jaromír Tesař.
The trailer and the first episode is funded by Adatruth, produced by Petr Smělík.

The timeline of the project is pretty self explanatory.
The deadlines are crucial in TV and film business, so we'd like to keep the timeline as described above.
Distributing the series is the success of the project. That's the plan.
But we can mark several milestones to see the progress on the way.
2) Visual Postproduction
3) Audio Postproduction
Tried to get this project funded back in F6. It was unfunded. We got a lot of criticism for not being in the right category, although the idea was well received.
