Renown Production Manager + Film Crew + You = Biggest Silent Fury Show Ever!
We've made some huge waves in the past year performing with the Stone Temple Pilots, Dropkick Murphy's and Seether. We were also fortunate enough to have our song "Exit Wounds" featured on the soundtrack for the #1 Movie in America Underworld Awakening, and be sponsored by Jagermeister.
The next step in our growth is to present ourselves to a few very important music industry executives. With the connections we've developed through the shows we've played, we have access to handful of people who can do a lot to further our career. The most crucial element in this presentation is our live show. With record sales in decline, bands now survive by being a one of a kind live act. With the help of an internationally renown production manager and lighting director we are building a show the likes of which we've never attempted. We're going to be renting a lighting rig similiar to the one used by groups like the Zac Brown Band and Nickelback, we have video footage synched to every single song, and some very cool special effects.
Producing a show of this magnitude is not an easy task. We've rented out the Cazenovia College Theater for 2 weeks straight, and we'll be performing and rehearsing there up until the night of the DVD shoot. We'll also be hiring a top notch film team to document the entire event, and edit the the project. Though we are getting the help of friends and cashing in as many favors as we can, the costs of a show this size are significant. With your help, we can make it happen.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge we face is producing this show within our budget. This is more difficult than you might think. The cost of the room, flights for the designers, and film crews do not come for cheap. Even if we do reach our financial goal, the orchestration of so many moving parts always leaves room for errors.
Fortunately, we have a great team of professionals around us to guide us and help us make this show a success. WIth their guidance and our determination, we will produce an outstanding DVD featuring our music and showmanship.
Seems like kind of a lot right? At least until you consider that when a performer like Jason Mraz goes out on tour, he brings 5 semi-trucks full of gear with him and has over $100,000 in production costs! We're trying to put on a show of similiar quality for lierally 1/20th of the budget. Its a big challenge we're ready for.
Why ask the fans to pay for it?
This is a really neat way for our friends and fans to have a DIRECT impact on our success. With the way our industry is today, bands literally CANNOT achieve success with out having a strong fan base filled with big hearted people who believe in the project. We think we have just those kinda fans. Thanks again for always being there for us:)
