UPDATE: *We're 3/3 on "BLANK CANVASS" featured candidates winning in the midterms. We did it – WE SAVED DEMOCRACY.*
All kidding aside, we decided to film this comedy series while on the final days of the campaign trail, because even the best political content out there is ever "different."
We have been asked every cycle to make peppy, instructional GOTV field training videos, which live internally and only preach to the converted. This year, the most necessary conversion was getting first-time volunteers through the doors of a field office– and knocking doors. We tried to make that seem more approachable, articulate the amazing community organizing provides, while making organizers feel seen and lifting up some of our most exciting young candidates.
Thank you to our trusted friends at The Arena, MobilizeAmerica, and Swing Left for sharing with their audience, and everyone else that spread the word. I appreciate everyone on Mandela Barnes for Lieutenant Governor, Josh Kaul and Lauren Underwood for Congress' teams for taking a risk on a rogue concept so close to E-Day. And the candidates themselves for playing along – you're all going to be such dynamic champions in office.
