Poi Dog Pondering: 25 year Retrospective Concert DVD and Live Recording set:

POI fans are AMAZING!!!!!!!
you all helped us reach our modest goal in ONE WEEK!  Thank you everyone, and LET'S KEEP THIS GOING!  if we get enough funds, we can hope for more extras, better packaging than just simple clamshell packaging…  maybe a booklet…  maybe even blu-ray dvds!!!

We have RECORDED and FILMED both of the AMAZING benchmark 25th-year anniversary "Division of Labor / A Tale Of Two Cities" retrospective Poi shows that occurred at the Metro in Chicago on December 2nd & December 3rd, 2011.  Both nights were MONUMENTAL shows!

We documented these nights with two objectives:

1) To complete a live VIDEO RELEASE of the concerts.

2) To complete a live AUDIO RELEASE of the concerts.

Make no mistake!  The concert DVDs will be THE ULTIMATE POI LIVE EXPERIENCE!  Pledging JUST $50 will help us out a ton and GUARANTEE you a copy of the DVDs and audio release!

The film crew (all poi friends and fans) all donated their time and equipment to document the night, and make sure the night was preserved, but WE NEED YOUR HELP to raise funds to cover the base expensive costs of video editing, color correction, post-production, audio mixing, and packaging. ALSO, WE ARE SURPASSING our base funding goal as much as possible, so we can hope for more extras, more quality, and/or bigger/better awesome artwork/booklet for the packaging!

As we release our own recordings, run our own record company out of our own studio, we hope that you might be willing to collaborate with us financially to make this happen. We are rolling up our sleeves to reward you with some AWESOME STUFF and rare goodies as a thank you for believing in us.   Please help spread the word about this Kickstarter campaign far and wide!

Thank you for all your support over the years!  We know that you would not be reading this if you were not along on this journey with us....

Aloha!
