OUR MISSION
Cinema Cartography inspires new ways of experiencing Art. We do this because we believe that Art changes the world by empowering people with new perspectives. Through our own diverse and free online content, we aspire to promote critical thinking and improve people's relationship with Art and the world around them.

WHO WE ARE
 If this is your first time hearing about us, our names are Lewis Michael Bond and Luiza Liz and Cinema Cartography is our multidisciplinary venture. We both have been on Youtube for a little while now creating Video Essays, dissecting and analysing Art through our own unique lenses. We've both always shared a passion for Cinema and Storytelling, despite our unique upbringings, Art unites us. Being both raised in completely different environments Manchester, England and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; allowed us both to inspire and motivate one another in all walks of life, from the way we look at the world to the way we approach Art. We are both obsessive learners and being together only made this stronger. 

WHAT DO WE CREATE

Podcast/Videocast
Wanting to break the mould of traditional podcasting, the Cinema Cartography Videocast incorporates dialogues, shorts and more to create a series of vignettes from our lives, our process, and our artistic journey. A unique multimedia format while remaining personal and tender, represents all that is Cinema Cartography.

Video Essays
With many years of experience in the online video essay era, the dissection of cinematic form, philosophies, and storytelling remains a vital part of our art. Our process of discovery we transpose through our short, poetic and informative video essays; exploring topics that range from use of cinematic Composition and Color to Perspective and Philosophical Sensibility.

In Conversations w/

Just as important as exploring our own work process, we aim to invite guests to regularly sit down for a conversation. By catering each episode to get the best out of every guest, In Conversations With aims to get a deeper understanding of them, their process and their work, that we would otherwise never get to see.

Short Docs
Cinema Cartography is a place to explore a variety of stories from the world we live in through episodic documentary pieces. Coming through the unique lens of those who believe that storytelling is in everything, and can be key in helping us digest the realities of life to discover a unique beauty. Our first is an episodic documentary; more details will be released on this in the coming months.

WHEN DO WE CREATE IT

One of the key aims of Cinema Cartography is to release high quality content at a frequent rate.  

Our Video Essays are going to be released every two weeks. 
Our Videocast is going to be released once a week
Our Zine is going to be released quarterly.
Our Short Doc Series and Publications will be released episodically through 2019.

GOALS

We have created a Goals section for the Patreon which you can interact with. Our several tiers of goals were developed after much research to find exactly how much we would need to produce some of our more high end projects as well as to keep Cinema Cartography sustainable. Cinema Cartography requires lots of equipment, art direction, branding, writing, research, producing, directing, editing, sound design, colourists; and as for now, all of these roles are taken on by just the two of us. We love doing what we do, but we understand that this is only possible with your help so we can expand and achieve even more. 


$2000 - This is the minimum amount needed in order to make Cinema Cartography sustainable.

$3000 - Upon reaching this goal, details about the Cinema Cartography zine shall be revealed.

$5000 - This amount makes Cinema Cartography ready for growth. Reaching this goal would allow for production on the first major Cinema Cartography project.

$7500 - Cinema Cartography will be able to immediately begin production on it's short fictional films. 

$10000 -  Cinema Cartography will have completed all the necessary funding of its first phase and would be able to transition into expansion. 

Cinema Cartography is our most exciting venture yet and is the place where we are both able to put all of our creative input. We want to make Cinema Cartography a home for all kinds of Art and to make it accessible for as many people as we possibly can. To open up new perspectives for people and show them just how incredible life can be when we improve our relationship with Art.
We are so excited about this opportunity and we have been working endlessly to make it a reality, we have so many things coming for you guys. We really need funds to keep this going. 

What this means is that just one dollar from you, can help us create and upload more free content online, accessible for everyone, by us, with your help.

We hope that you will all join us on this journey.

Thank you all so much,
