Fight Vision Asia | Global Video Project Needs Your Help

Global video project about martial arts created for MA fans all around the world

My name is Roman FV (Rodion Samarin). I'm a sport journalist and a filmmaker. I'm also a big fan of martial arts and crossfit. 
I've made documentaries in Netherlands, France, Russia and Thailand (of course about muay thai, but not only), for gear and equipment shops and promotions.
As you may know, last year I travelled around Thailand to make unique videos about muay thai for my own project Fight Vision: 

Training camps and gyms reviews, interviews with fighters and trainers, and of course useful techniques demonstration. It was a trial trip and I've spent all my money at this point of Fight Vision. But now I see that this project has a really good potential so this time I want to make videos from interesting gyms all around Asia. I'm planning 2 big documentaries - 1st about history of Muay Thai from ancient to modern era, and several video lessons and techniques demonstrations.

Why I need your financial support:

This is the global video project about martial arts of the world created to connect gyms all around the world.
The aim of Fight Vision is exploring of world of martial arts all around the world with all aspects: techniques, spiritual, motivational and other. It is a non-profit project - all money that project can get will be spent on it's development - more countries, more styles, more videos. I want to continue this project with or without money but I really want to make perfect and unique videos.
All steps of this project will be published here several times per week. Feel free to ask any questions or give me advices. I have a trip plan and big screenplay of all that I want to film, but I'm ready to change something a bit or add some interesting ideas.

The main plan of this project for countries and styles:
• Thailand - Muay Thai, Muay Boran, Muay Chaiya, MMA, BJJ, Crossfit, Karate
• Laos - Muay Lao, MMA
• Myanmar - Lehtwei (Myanmar boxing)
• China - Kung fu, Shaolin, Sanda, MMA, Crossfit
• South Korea - Taekwondo, Hapkido, MMA, Crossfit
• Indonesia - Pencak Silat, MMA, Muay Thai
• Phillipines - Kali Escrima, MMA
• Singapore - MMA (ONE FC version), Crossfit, Muay Thai

• Malaysia - Tomoi (Malaysian boxing)
• Taiwan - Muay Thai, Crossfit, Kung Fu, Asian bodybuilding

Risks & Challenges

Sure I have some risks. Sometimes it is really hard to find connection with some people. Sometimes there are language problems, sometimes communication problems. 
But as you can see I've started this project without money, so you can imagine how it will look with financial support. And the main thing that can help my project to overcome all risks - I will work with many people so I will have a lot of extra chances to finish this project successfully.
