Rather than sit at home and wait out the Coronavirus Pandemic, Austin-based filmmakers Kirk Word and Sam Dillon jumped in a rented RV in April to talk with people in and outside of Austin about their experiences during the lockdown. The resulting road-trip web series, Covid Crusades, features interviews that shed light on how the virus has impacted people personally and financially in Texas, Colorado, Nevada, California, among other states. Word and Dillon also place an emphasis on positive stories that stress the good that has come out of the bad. Per Word and Dillon, interviews were conducted in strict observation of social-distancing guidelines.
