Hey Kombi Crew,
We've come up with a way to be able to share Real-Time, Raw, Undited posts with you from the adventure as it happens!
We're setting up a brand new Instagram Feed for the Kombi Crew to say thanks for helping us create this series, and so you can be involved in the adventure in more!
As discussed in the recent Kombi Crew Real-Time Video Update from Morocco. We want to find a way to share raw updates with you guys in real-time and we think this is the best way for us to do that.
Our aim is still to try and get the series as close to real time as possible for everyone watching on YouTube and we will continue to post our edited pictures and content via the main Kombi Life Instagram feed. However, you guys have seen just how much work goes into creating our little production, and that work means there is always a delay between what is happening today and what we are posting tomorrow.
This new Kombi Crew feed gives us a way to share raw posts, in real-time, and we're pretty stoked to be able to involve you in the adventure in an even deeper way.
Some questions you might have...
1) Will you still be posting real time and bonus content to the Kombi Crew on Patreon?
Yes - nothing is changing here. Our focus will always be on producing our main episodes, that's what everyone wants to see, but we will still produce as many extras as we possibly can and welcome any suggestions on what you would like to see.
2) I don't have Instagram, will I be missing out?
Yes & No. We're not taking anything away from what we were previously offering the Kombi Crew, this is just a new extra bonus perk. Instagram is free and easy to join - why not download the app and see if you like it, if you don't you can delete it.
3) What sort of content will you be posting on this new Kombi Crew Feed?
All sorts of raw pics (and maybe vids if we have the bandwidth) taken exclusively with the phone. The pictures will be unedited and may or may not have a caption. Connectivity is the main constraint to sharing videos / stories as we are constantly moving between service.
We would love to hear your comments on these new posts, but we can't promise that we will reply because our focus is on replying to comments via Patreon.
4) Why don't you just post this real-time stuff on your other Instagram accounts?
Kombi Life is a quality over quantity type of production. To produce quality posts across our social feeds, takes time, editing photos alone take many hours per week and that prevents us from posting in real-time.
Also we try to keep a consistent timeline across our public feeds as lack of continuity (different timelines) between our social accounts gives us a big headache, it also causes confusion between some viewers, and that causes disengagement.
Life is simpler from a creators perspective when all platforms tell the same story.
We opt to share real-time stuff exclusively with you guys on Patreon because you are helping to make this series happen so we like to keep you in the loop with real-time developments as one of the perks of being part of the Kombi Crew.
5) How can I get access to to the Kombi Crew Instagram feed?
The new account details are shared with you in the welcome message when you Join The Kombi Crew.
For existing members, we've intentionally made this new account impossible to find on Instagram to keep it exclusive, you can help us keep it that way by not sharing the account with anyone and not tagging us in your posts. We've put the link to the new account and our new username here on this Kombi Crew post
Comments and questions welcomed.
Thanks for helping us create this series.
