Participate in Voodoo Swing's trailblazing Rockabilly with upcoming video for "Lost Yesterdays" single. Win your own VS custom song!
Raising funds for a quality video of "Lost Yesterdays", by rockabilly veterans Voodoo Swing. We are reaching outside of our comfort zone, being able to ambitiously sollicit talent to capture the essence and swampy darkness of this tune beyond the expected clichés. Supporting fans deserve pleasant surprises, and having the means to do it well shall benefit everyone. Any funds above our secret max-ceiling will go towards vinyl pressings. Nothing is lost, not even yesterdays. Thank you for spreading culture beyond the corporate billboards.

This is a straight Meat-and-Potatoes project... But we need you. Once minimum is reached, we'll focus on the storyline of the video, work with both the Band and the visual creative teams to give another dimension and depth to Rockabilly, deeper than just playful pinups and cool cars...This song carries weight, and needs the shoulders of giants... Budget will be met, and product delivered. Welcome aboard, let's keep on rollin'
Because this is not our first rodeo, there is always a B-plan that wouldn't compromise quality, in case some unexpected wrench is thrown in our wheels.
We collect all footage as it's being created, make double backups of everything... Once the script (can and can't do's will be defined by total amount of sponsorship collected) is set, we can always find the right person to pick up the project right from where it may have gone south... We are prepared to honor our engagement to our sponsors. Which is why we are not doing this in a rush, we understand that as a small company, we are only as good as our last gig.
Our biggest challenge would be to find the right balance of subtext to appeal to both elitists and average Joes... Because Voodoo Swing shouldn't be boxed in as a one-trick pony, this very song should showcase just that, without denying its rockabilly/rebel music/blue collar roots.
