Relaying an idea from another Spoke Fund manager that I thought could be a good one…
If you haven’t heard of the cartoonist Hugh MacLeod, you can check out some of his work at this Tumblr site or his art site here, and Hugh’s blog is also here. And here is one of his recent presentations, too, which gives some context to the paragraph below.
So the question is…how much interest among Spoke Fund managers is there in having Hugh create a 60 second animation video that explains the Spoke Fund concept? It will apparently cost from $8k to $12k to create a really slick animation video, depending on bells and whistles. Think it’s safe to say that cost is too high for any of us as individuals, but we might be able to share the cost as a group if the interest is there. The idea would be to create a cool, high quality vid that individual managers can use however they see fit, ostensibly for their own advertising efforts as well as to educate investors and prospects.
I’ve had some surprising success with the videos on my own site, and would be happy to pay a bit more than equal share to fund the cost of the video. I’ll also devote some resources to some sort of PR push to be timed with the release of the final vid, too, if we get enough interest.
So if you’d be interested, please let me know, and we will go from there. Thank you.
