TDR: the movie

Production company LCM Digital is attempting to raise Kickstarter funding to produce Work, Consume, Die, a documentary film about The Designers Republic

Production company LCM Digital is attempting to raise Kickstarter funding to produce Work, Consume, Die, a documentary film about The Designers Republic

TDR is working with LCM Digital on the project which it claims will be “A film about a design and cultural phenomenon; an observational study of TDR™ and its continued global influence over the 25 years since its conception”.

 

 

The plan is to release the film (trailer shown above) in short sections, or ‘tracks’, which can be viewed independently or as a whole film. A Kickstarter page is asking for £10,000 to complete the first of these tracks. In typical Kickstarter style, various packages of rewards are on offer depending on the amount pledged, including signed prints, tickets to the premiere and being taken out for a curry by TDR founder Ian Anderson and team.

At the time of writing, the page had raised £2,120 of the total needed. The deadline for funding is June 9, 2013.

 

 

Update: our original story stated that TDR was behind the Kickstarter funding: it was actually put in place by LCM Digital but TDR are spreading the word
