About

The Story

Intent on exploring unfamiliar arts and territories, I will travel from Miami to Montreal to Chicago, stopping along the way to collaborate with artists, musicians, photographers and foodies. My goal is to pioneer America’s Next Frontier – its creative cache – in a way that’s never been done before: through making a new media documentary that combines music, adventure, and film, and inspires our generation to see life itself as a work of art.

My crew and I plan on beginning our trip in mid-October, and it will take four weeks to complete our journey.

Why should you be part of this project?

The 21st century is about exploration - it's about custom culture, about delving into the diverse plethora of musicians, artists, and designers to find what represents you. We don't live in a homogenous society - unique styles, perspectives, tastes, and experiences exist everywhere, and this is what lends beauty and intrigue to our world. Triumphant Vision is about embodying this idea through film - it's fundamentally a music and film project, but it's also a creative endeavor in and of itself. We not only want to document America's creative cache, but we also want to contribute to it by making this film. 

Our tentative tour schedule is as follows. Be sure to "Like" our Facebook page and make suggestions on our Wall about where to eat and what to see! 

10/15: Orlando, FL

10/16: Athens, GA

10/17: Atlanta, GA

10/20: Pittsburgh, PA

10/22: Philadelphia, PA

10/23: New York, NY

10/26: Providence, RI

10/31: Montreal, QU

11/2: Toronto, ON

11/4: Detroit, MI

11/7: Chicago, IL

We can't achieve this project alone - your collaboration is essential. Only by engaging with our blog, visiting us during our tour stops, and most importantly, making a funding pledge, does the Triumphant Vision community have a chance to come alive. 

Update: Consequence of Sound will provide coverage of the Triumphant Vision team while they’re on the road, including access to live sets, interviews with musicians, and collaborative artwork. 

Check out their article about Triumphant Vision here: http://consequenceofsound.net/2012/09/triumphant-vision-a-documentary/

Triumphant Vision has confirmed collaborations with: WHY? (band), Mister Lies (musician), Mainland (band), Denney and the Jets (band), Relief in Abstract Record Label and Art Collective (http://reliefinabstract.com), Creatures Creating Art Collective (http://www.creaturescreating.com), Danny Coeyman (artist), and Michael Roffman (Editor-in-Chief of Consequence of Sound). We also have strong interest from Emily Wells, Dark Dark Dark, Ethan Daniel Davidson Juston Stens, and Santah.

What is the Kickstarter goal?

We’re trying to be as minimalistic as possible, so we’ve set our goal at $30,000. Your contributions will be directly allocated to the production of this documentary, including acquiring the camera and sound equipment, editing, packaging, apparel and prints. Why so low for such an ambitious production? We want to show the creative world that with the bare essentials and your current resources, you can accomplish your goal. Keep in mind, the higher we reach above our goal, the more opportunities and adventure there will be.

In addition to receiving a digital download of the Triumphant Vision documentary with a pledge of $25 or more, I've designed some one-of-a-kind rewards (pictured below) for those who fund $45 or more. All rewards will have exclusive branding and packaging.
