My name is Corey Washington. I am an educator and author of two Jimi Hendrix books - Nobody Cages Me and Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy. I have been studying Jimi Hendrix from a scholarly POV for almost a quarter of a century. The bulk of my research has focused on how Jimi's overall impact extended beyond rock and the blues and branched out into multiple genres like R&B, Funk, jazz, and hip-hop. It is essential to show the younger generation how Jimi's influence still reverberates today.
I want to create a well-researched, unique, and entertaining documentary that touches on aspects of Jimi's life, influence, and impact that has been underreported, misrepresented, and in some cases, completely omitted from his numerous books, documentaries, etc. I have started several crowdfunding campaigns to make this documentary a reality.
The funds will be used to move the documentary from its current Pre-production stage to the Production stage, which includes: 1) Obtaining the proper audio/visual equipment to document. 2) Travel for on-location interviews and B-Roll footage 3) Clearances for music, pictures, and videos (Outside of FAIR USE) 4) Contracting people to help with shooting footage and other related tasks.
Once enough funds are donated, work will began immediately and monthly updates will be posted.
This project has been burning inside me for several years. Your support will be valued tremendously! I don't mind devoting resources from my own pocket, but in order for this documentary to be of the highest quality, it's going to take a village. I'm certainly grateful for any help I can get.
