FORM follows FUNCTION (FfF) is a place-based media collaborative based in Los Angeles creating unique documentaries that advocate for places since 2011. FfF is an independent collaborative running on love: love of architecture, architecture history, the built environment, and people who help make places unique.
Recently I joined Form follows Function as an Assistant Producer. This is exciting because I have always been a fan of FfF projects. WALKING WITH GRACE is the first virtual reality (VR) documentary about Little Tokyo. The film follows Grace Chikui, a blind resident and long time resident walk through her day in Little Tokyo. Shooting was an amazing process. The Little Tokyo community looks out for Grace, with one resident calling her "Little Tokyo's Princess."
Tonight FfF is having our kick off fundraiser for WALKING WITH GRACE. We are raising money to help us pay for the equipment, software, and staff needed to distribute this documentary on multiple platforms including a 360° web player and mobile applications (ios/android) with added interactive features highlighting historic sites in the documentary.
Join us at Far Bar Little Tokyo (Far Bar Little Tokyo (upstairs lounge), 347 E 1st St
Los Angeles, CA 90012, 6-8pm, farbarla.com) and meet the team behind FfF Interactive (a new initiative using immersive technology to celebrate the history of neighborhoods through local perspectives.), experience VR footage on a Gear VR headset, watch exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of our process, and have some drinks & appetizers with us as we launch our fundraiser! You can also meet Little Tokyo's Princess herself, Grace Chikui will be at the party tonight!
If you are unable to make it to our Virtual Reality Happy Hour, but you want to support FfF you can donate to our Crowdrise Campaign: Walking With Grace and be a part of this journey with us.
