Maker documentary hits goal, still growing on Kickstarter

A new documentary on the Maker Movement, appropriately titled “Maker,” is on track for completion thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

With seven days remaining, the project has nearly doubled its original $15,000 goal. Additional pledges will be accepted until Nov. 4.

This is the second documentary for the team behind “Maker.” Their first effort, “Design & Thinking,” explored the methodology of design and was also aided by a Kickstarter campaign.

According to the filmmakers, “Maker” is currently about halfway to a final product, with the Kickstarter funds expected to take it over the top. The team has already conducted interviews with some of the key people involved in the movement, including Chris Anderson, author of “Makers: The New Industrial Revolution” and CEO of 3D Robotics; David Lang and Eric Stackpole, co-founders of OpenROV; Eric Migicovsky, CEO of Pebble Watch; and many more.
