A/Z. Movie Guide
THE BOOK. Why Crowd Funding?
The (progressive) disappearance of the Video Rental stores had led to a void in the knowledge of cinema history for newer generations, and we want to rescue that place in one book.
The concept stems from the idea that there is a World of Film out there to be explore, and the best way to take a trip to this world is with a travel guide book.
A/Z. Movie Guide started a year and a half ago. The book is finished and now we required your help to share this work with everybody.
Everything started with the simplest principle of collaboration between two persons (Tamara y Gabriel) with different skills (film/history and design/photography). With time, many people collaborate with their work, ideas, advices and solidarity.
Is natural that we have to end by praising the flag of COLLABORATION and sense of community.
