What happened to the 2021 documentary?

Post by Ballpark » Tue Jun 21, 2022 11:40 pm

Last year at the Plan B burn I noticed camera crews with drones and handheld steady cameras driving around the event for several days. One truckload stopped in front of my camp to shoot some video. I asked what they were doing and one of them explained that it was going to be a documentary about Burningman. He also told me that the Org has opened the books for them for reference.
He stated that he had no idea what it would be called or when it would be released but the Org is behind it.

Has anyone heard of this? Any idea of the specifics on it? Or was it similar to a ufo sighting. No one will fess up to it?

Just curious.

Let’s see, theory one: T1 is invalidated because they did not need tickets.

T2: they found another project to get course credit. Or failed their film, sociology, or psych course.

T3: difficult and time consuming post production, may still happen.

T4: the org did not allow use or association of the name.

I honestly I have no information to add.
