The American Garage (online series)

The American Garage (online series)The American Garage is an online DIY show about woodwork and restoration. Some of their projects include restoring planes and building boats, as well as more affordable projects that are “at grass roots”.

They are currently looking for $26,200USD to continue their project, and are currently at $110. Episodes have already been produced and can be found on YouTube.

My favourite part is their motto and the reason behind their plea for funding: they want to relieve our reliance on conglomerates for products that could be built or modified at home.

They want people to stop being consumers and return to being producers!

For them to get funded, the quality of their filming needs to be improved, but this is an area the makers say they’ll work on.

The audio is shallow and distant – perhaps from using an in-camera microphone – and the quality of the footage looks like it was recorded on a 90s video camera.

Apart from that, I can see many people will find the projects interesting, and I could see viewers would be inspired to make a change to their consumerism.

If you’re interested in supporting this plea on Kickstarter, you can find it here.
