What Is The Project?
The Project entails creating a very Nounish Video that blends the diverse Nigerian Culture with many Elements of the NounsDAO, specifically the idea behind funding creative & useful ideas and also simply making hundreds of Nigerians fall in love with the Noggles.
The Video is supposed to serve as an entry into the $200,000 Nouns Video Contest Ending in 8 days. I already drafted a video script and planned out the entire video with a friend who is a Videographer several weeks ago. But I had been waiting on payments for several jobs I did in March for exchanges like Gate.io and projects like EDNS Domains. April is about ending and I have not received a dime yet so I’m very short on funds to carry out this project.
I just completed my university education so I don’t have a strong enough credit score or a functional business to get a sufficient loan here in Nigeria. My friends are equally fresh graduates so we all just simply don’t have enough funds to pull together for this. I tried getting some funding during the Nouns Video Contest Promotional Proposal but I didn’t get selected.
Under the shower this morning, I realized NounsDAO was literally a platform to fund ideas and after some research, I found myself here
How it will proliferate Nouns?
Nigeria is a talented nation filled with lots of hidden talent which only needs a platform to help them express themselves. So many ideas are being funded in the European and American regions and Africa equally has a strong potential to be a fan favorite in the Nouns Community.
If I’m able to make this video, there’d already be a lot of exposure here in the economic powerhouse of the nation, Lagos. Interest in NounsDAO will increase and the adoption of Blockchain as a whole will take a deeper rooting in this continent. All because of NounsDAO.
Secondly, seeing a lot of Africans wearing Noggles is just going to be Super Awesome.
How much upfront funding do you want?
I’m looking for 1.2ETH or $2,000 worth of funding for this project. It will cover the cost of the following:
- Training a zoo monkey to wear Noggles and do some flips for the video
- Shooting the video, renting out the equipment, space and paying people that will be part of the video cast
- Printing high-quality educational brochures to educate people who might be curious about the Noggles people are wearing.
- Promotional efforts in the form of Billboards and Social Media Marketing (YouTube Ads, Instagram Ads, Facebook Ads).
The contest is ending in 8 days and I had been so pumped to make the video weeks ago and hopefully win and donate a part of the winnings to a very useful charity. I’m hoping NounsDAO will come in Clutch with the save and assist with this funding. I’d be eternally grateful.
