We reached our goal with our first backer. Well known wilderness medical expert William Forgey's donation while not surprising is certainly very generous. This has allowed us to focus on our stretch goal of funding the start of the multimedia version of The Backcountry Classroom.
The stretch goal is to create what will be an e-book/ app that will include interactive video, animation, interactive tables and more. We want to maximize the use of technology in creating a state of the art tool for teaching and learning about wilderness leadership. We are budgeting $1000 a minute for videography. Animation rates start at $1500 per minute and can be well over $15,000 per minute. Although we’ll be budgeting the lower range you get the idea. This stuff is expensive!
We hope to use our stretch funding to make at least one sample chapter of this multimedia learning tool. We hope you'll consider being part of our project?
