Hitchhike along as Darwin Prophet treks thru time & space in their debut music video boldly going where no band has gone before.
Transmission from Darwin:
For as long as I've felt I'd developed a suitably interesting personality, it is from collecting thought & color from hand full of brilliant artists & mythos that have become an indelible part of my perception. Douglas Adams and Gene Roddenberry are two such geniuses who's influence transformed me. I would like to pay a proper thank you to their memory with this music video, and show the worlds that their creations inspire new thoughts, dreams, laughter, and art.
2nd Transmission - from director Tim Stevens
Join Darwin and her crew aboard the Darship as they plunge at the speed of light towards the Sun with no sign of stopping. Coming from the worlds of classic sci-fi, Star Trek, Hitchhiker's Guide, dieselpunk, and steampunk, the "Don't Panic" music video will grip you, inspire you, and make you laugh. What is the fate of Darwin and her crew as the great burning star approaches? You won't know unless you help us reach our goal. Check out the great rewards we have for you on the right, see what inspires us, tell us what inspires you, and most importantly....don't panic.

What your donation will accomplish
Making a music video is an expensive endeavor. Your contributions will go to securing a location, building props, digital special fx, feeding cast and crew, gear rental, and submission of the video to festivals and contests. Also, a certain amount will help us reward YOU for your wonderful contributions.
If we exceed your goal, additional funds will help Darwin in the recording of her new, upcoming album.
Captain Darwin back at the helm: IN regards to our reward system: you will note many involve you to choose the subject matter for different mediums of art that I can create for you:
With "Time Frames" https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.491839637499478.147589.100000203380399&type=3 - you can send me files of your favorite pictures from any occasion, or time in your life you would like to be able to experience in a montage of memories. You will get a hi-res file in your email that can be taken to any print shop for making a frame-able version. If you are in need of a collage style poster for your band or crew, or a cover for your next cd, I can provide that for you with the help of dropbox (for files too big for email).
For paintings, check out https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.120911544638763.17708.111751342221450&type=3
- to see my basic style. If you have a person or pet you want involved in the visual,send a picture to me, include your favorite color and a theme or time or place or flower you love.
For poems or songs, I would like to have a conversation with you either by phone or email, so you can tell me what you'd like it to be about, if you have a special occasion coming up or if there is special someone you'd like the words to honor.
For an Artist Development consultation, we should also connect verbally or thru email first to decide what area you wish to focus on, whether it is songwriting, singing, performance, or help in branding your own unique persona. Visit Viva La Diva Artist Development
