An Update on “Urbanized”, and How You Can Help

Hello friends, just wanted to give you a quick update on Urbanized. We’ve been crazy busy the past six months, traveling and filming all over the world, meeting some amazing people, and getting what I think is some incredible footage. We’re still working on getting a “real” website up for the film, and a trailer, and we’re knee-deep in editing, and… well there aren’t enough hours in the day. Suffice to say that we’ve done extensive filming in a dozen cities on four continents, and we still have at least another six trips to go. We’ll be detailing some of the people and projects we’ve been filming when we launch the real site, within the next 30 days. But my Twitter feed is still the place to get the latest updates and other musings.
How can you support Urbanized? Well, it’s pretty simple. Urbanized is a totally independent project, funded mainly by the revenue from Helvetica and Objectified. So the easiest and best way for you to support the new film is to buy merchandise from the previous films. If you’d like to help out now, you can purchase any of these fine items (they make great gifts, too):
There are less than 20 of these limited prints left, so get them while they’re around. If you’re anywhere in Europe, you can order DVDs from our UK Webshop.
Thanks again for supporting the film and following along on this journey with us, and I’ll have more news soon.
