The NY Times Has a New Digital Documentary Channel with Kickstarter

/ Mar 10, 2015

New York Times video platform Times Video has a new channel with Kickstarter

The New York Times has partnered with Kickstarter to launch a new channel on the outlet’s owned-and-operated video platform, Times Video.

The channel, called Made with Kickstarter, currently hosts six documentaries that were funded through Kickstarter (and curated by the Times). The documentaries range from six to over 17 minutes and take viewers from Harlem to Japan.

Below is a list of the documentaries that you can find on the Made with Kickstarter channel:

“Minka: A Farmhouse in Japan”

A film about place and memory, a farmhouse in Japan, and the lives of the people who called it home.

Filmmaker: Davina Pardo

“The Last Ice Merchant”

For more than 50 years, Baltazar Ushca has harvested the glacial ice of Ecuador’s Mount Chimborazo. His brothers, both raised as ice merchants, have long since retired. El Último Hielero — “The Last Ice Merchant” — is a story of cultural change and how three brothers have adapted to it.

Filmmaker: Sandy Patch

“The Tree That Would Not Be Broken”

It was the last living thing rescued from the ruins of 9/11. A dozen years later, one mythical pear tree is finally home, and branching out from Ground Zero in mystical ways.

Filmmaker: Scott Elliott

“Strike”

One ordinary night, things start changing for underdog bowler Bill Fong, as he begins to get strike after strike. Will he attain the ‘perfect series,’ the pinnacle achievement in bowling, or buckle under the pressure?

Filmmaker: Joey Daoud

“Elvis Loses His Excess & Other Tales from the World’s Longest Yard Sale”

Travel down US Highway 127 from Michigan to Alabama and meet the people at the world’s longest yard sale — an annual, four-day, 690-mile exchange of not only goods, but also stories.

Filmmaker: Riley Hooper

“A Harlem Mother”

In 2001, 26-year-old LaTraun Parker was murdered in Harlem. Weaving footage from LaTraun’s own documentary, shot in 1998, with scenes from his mother Jean’s life today, “A Harlem Mother” tells a tragic and inspirational story from the dual perspective of mother and son.

Filmmaker: Ivana Todorovic
