DONATING TO HAPPEN FILMS

Philosophy

Jordan Osmond

I decided to release all of my films for free online rather than charge money to view them because I believe these stories are important for everyone to see, no matter what your bank balance is. My income is entirely from making films – mostly from donations, a small amount from YouTube views, and occasional freelance work. Donations help me to fund the road trips that take me to new stories, the gear needed to film them, and the time it takes to edit them.

I plan to remove the ads on YouTube once I’m earning enough through donations because I don’t have control over what ads are shown and I’d much rather be supported directly by people who like my work, rather than from advertising.

If you like what I do and you can afford to be one of the people who help to make these films free to everyone, please consider donating. A little bit goes a long way for me! Thank you!

Buying A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity

A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity

A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity is a feature-length documentary that I shot over the course of 2015. I lived in a community in Gippsland, Australia where 9 people came together to take part in this documentary to explore and demonstrate a simpler way to live in response to global crises. Throughout the year we built tiny houses, planted veggie gardens, practiced simple living, and discovered the challenges of living in community. This film is the product of hours and hours of footage that I shot during that year-long experiment in simple living. The film is available to watch for free and there’s also the option of paying what you want to download a copy of the film.
