About

'Longfingers" Prosthetics Concept Art (by Gina Tuzzi)
'Longfingers" Prosthetics Concept Art (by Gina Tuzzi)

 

My name is Nick Stargu and I perform as the multimedia comedy act, DJ REAL in San Francisco. I am teaming up with award winning video director Doug Garth Williams and special effect designer George Schminky to create two uniquely whacked out music videos for songs that appear on my latest album, "They'll Say "Yes"". And I need your help to make it happen! It turns out that this might cost more than few bucks....

The music videos will be for the instrumental "Longfingers" and the song "Pushups". Here's an example of a previous music video I made for a taste of the weirdness you would be backing:

The Team

You may be familiar with Doug's viral hit, "Little Baby's Ice Cream" ad. Doug is an extremely talented director and I'm excited to work with him on this project!  

The makeup artist George Schminky will be creating all prosthetics for the shoots. He has appeared on Syfy channel's makeup artist show "Faceoff" and worked on a number of professional shoots. As you can see from the video below, he is supremely skilled with making creepy and cool makeup effects. 

Funding

I'm looking to raise $5,000 for this project. The funds from this campaign will go to creating Hollywood grade prosthetics, including extremely long fingers for the song "Longfingers" and humungous biceps for the song "Pushups". It will also go to the cost of renting a Red camera and covering the costs of paying an on set makeup artist. The shoot happens the weekend of July 1st.

Thanks for everyone's support! Let's this happen!

Risks and challenges

Barring something catastrophic occurring the weekend of July 1st, this project should go pretty smoothly. I will update the backers on the progress of the project and all backer rewards will distributed quickly.
