Up and coming LA producer Dobrega is making a music video to accompany his experimental sounds needs your help to make it happen!
I'm making my first ever music videooooooooooo!
For real?! YES!
So the time has come not only to put out my own music (The Rebuild EP drops next week Thurs Dec 29th!) but I am also in the works of putting together a music video for one of my songs, thanks to the help of some really amazing people! I'm really proud of the EP and very excited to have a music video in the works for the opening track Sunrise.
How's this thing gonna get made?
The brains of the operation is my good friend and director Caroline Park- a super creative filmmaker who I met during my time back at UCLA who has encouraged me to make a music video for some time. I didn't want to start production on a video until my EP was for sure being released and now that it is, Caroline has developed a stellar concept and storyboard for the video and has assembled a team of talented young film artists to assist in the creation of it! So far the team consists of:
Caroline Park- Director
Rex Cheung- Producer
Nate Fu- Director of Photography
Lauren Slusser- Art Director
- Brian Braganza- Editor
... and we got more people coming in! So stoked!
So why am I making a Kickstarter you ask?
The biggest task of the music video is that we'll essentially be using time-lapse photography to film the construction of a boat- that's right- we're building a boat and filming the build in time-lapse! That's gonna require materials and plans for the build, the renting of a warehouse to build/shoot in and some hearty food to nourish the folks who we are volunteering to help us build the thing. That plus we'll need to transport it around town for some more shots and transport video gear and ourselves, get some permits for the other shots and provide enough coffee on tap to get it all done in as little time as possible.
In short, we're simply raising funds to cover the essential costs of producing a music video- transportation, permits, materials, food for my crew, and the like. We got a volunteer film crew + volunteer construction crew- everyone coming in on the production of the video is doing it cause they're in it for the art and they're all creative artists who appreciate the opportunity to partner together and make something amazing happen.
So why should you pledge to help the project come to fruition?
In addition to feelings of awesomeness in knowing your contributions financially backed the work of a ton of creative people, Kickstarter lets me give you rad tangible goods in exchange for your much appreciated monetary support! I've listed out tons of rewards on the right hand side of the page and placed a lot of them at real accessible price points. Why? Cause it's effective for you to help the project and get awesome stuff at the same without having to shell tons of dough- just spread the word so others can do the same!
Over the next 30 days, I'll be updating you with the progress of the project as well as updating the page with rad content such as mini docs on production status, bios on the team members and sneak peeks at the rewards being offered!
LET'S MAKE THIS THING HAPPEN!
Remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing- we either get all funds pledged if we reach our goal or no funds if we don't so please pledge! Thanks so much for your support- it's super appreciated!
Peace and blessings,
