- HOW TO SUPPORT MYSELF ON TIPEEE? HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you want to support me financially on [NEXT], Tipeee's operation is simple: you choose at the time of payment if you want to make a one-shot support, or for each Future episode (every 4 weeks). Nb. You will obviously not be charged for episodes already released! I prefer to reassure you about that ;-)
- QUI SUIS-JE?
My name is Clément Montfort. I am 32 years old and I am a director.
Between 2012 and 2016, I worked as a director and cameraman for French television. From now on I launch myself independently on Tipeee via my Youtube channel.
In recent years, I have focused my energy on making documentaries about ecology and our future on this planet. These questions fascinate me as much as they frighten me. I think it is necessary to keep your eyes open in order to avoid the worst if possible.
I invite you to consult my previous projects for France Télévisions. They are available free of charge on the Internet: > La Guerre des Graines (financed by France 5) / > Soigneurs de Terres (financed by France 2).
After university studies, I trained in image and documentary filmmaking with the essential (!!!) team at LaTéléLibre.fr, founded by John Paul Lepers in 2007!
- "[ NEXT ]": MY CURRENT PROJECT IN TIPEEE FINANCING
I chose to self-finance the first 3 episodes in order to give an overview of my future work.
For more creative and editorial freedom, I have chosen to carry out my next projects on the Internet without a television channel, with participatory financing. This is the purpose of this Tipeee page.
I've been working on[NEXT] for a year. This is a Web Documentary Series about our near future on this planet: biological annihilation of ecosystems, population migrations for climatic reasons, risks of oil shortages, in other words a series about the risks of collapse of our civilization.
NEXT will also address the possible resilience of our society: new agricultural models, the use of low-techs (post-carbon or low-carbon technologies), alternative lifestyles, urban reorganization.
"What is in store for us in concrete terms? How to prepare for it" will be the two main questions of this project.
NEXT will finally address psychological aspects: how to "live with" our time? We are entering a global systemic crisis that can sometimes completely overwhelm us at the individual level. What to do about it? How to live with all this sad news without sinking or remaining depressed? And what do we do when we feel depressed by so many ecological setbacks?
- THE STARTING POINT: THE GALAXY OF "COLLAPSOLOGISTS"
In April 2015, Pablo Servigne and Raphaël Stevens published their book "Comment tout peut se effondrer". They then launch a new intellectual current that they call "Collapsology" or "the science of the collapse of our civilization". From the English "To collapse", to collapse.
Intrigued by their work, I decided to film them to discover their universe, the galaxy of "collapsologists".
As early as the 1970s, Dennis Meadows, in his report to the Club of Rome, predicted a collapse of our consumption patterns and our society by the 2030s.
What is the situation today and what should we expect in the near future?
- WHAT WILL THE MONEY RAISED BE USED FOR EACH EPISODE?
To finance [NEXT] is to finance filming days and equipment rental, editing days and equipment, location days, investigation days, travel to filming locations. [NEXT] needs you. The financing is totally independent and without you, the project cannot exist.
- HOW OFTEN? HOW MANY EPISODES PER MONTH?
I publish an episode every 4 weeks. By subscribing with the "per episode" option you will only be debited once every 4 weeks.
- [ NEXT ] A SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY PROJECT
NEXT is a documentary web series that is being built at the same time as its community of viewers. Many episodes are already planned but despite everything, the project is to keep a strong link with the community to adapt the direction according to the requests and wishes of the group.
We will organize events to meet and discuss the project.
NEXT] seeks to inform about the near future. Without falling into the "dark side of force", in news that is necessarily anxious,[NEXT] nevertheless claims to be an "enlightened" catastrophism, to use Jean Pierre Dupuy's expression. In other words, when the future is approaching, it is reassuring to talk about it.
