"The Making of This is Not a Conspiracy Theory" is the brand new, free video series about the production of This is Not a Conspiracy Theory. Since releasing Episode One of TINACT, I've published status update videos that run between episodes. Publishing updates for TINACT members has been a great way to connect with my audience, share my process, and keep them posted on the progress of the documentary. Nearly two-years, ten-status-updates, and seventy-five-minutes-of-video later, I've decided it's time to refresh the format.
The new series is something like a traditional "behind the scenes" format done in real time. The production process is documented throughout by me and my wife and producing partner, Nora Ryan. Whenever we think a new chapter should be added to the story, we gather these materials and publish a short video. The series covers the development of the film, as well as the close collaboration between me and Nora.
This series will also serve as a creative tool for development of TINACT episodes. It will be sandbox where I try out new ideas and techniques, the best of which will get synthesized into the episodes.
And perhaps most excitingly, this new series can be viewed for free by anyone. Before making this move, I asked permission from my customers: 99% of them supported this change. So thank you to my fans, who understood why making these videos free would provide the most benefit for the project.
While the "Making Of" series is now available freely, there are still behind-the-scenes perks reserved for those who purchase the series. Exclusive opportunities for interactivity and even collaboration will be featured in select extended versions of "Making Of" videos, and a wide assortment of digital goodies are also reserved for members. Nonetheless, the free version of the videos will serve as a strong introduction to what this documentary is about and I'm excited to share this intimate portrayal of my process with a wider audience.
