My Creation Story - The WHY ...

This second video is a little raw and gritty, but it reflects perfectly my life and what I've been through, which has brought me here. There is LIGHT, POWER and an innate desire in each of us to make a difference.

In a world of darkness, chaos and hostility, there must be an alternative voice—a voice of strength—a voice from someone who has conquered—this is the motivation for this project!

Synopsis of the above video: I was diagnosed with cancer. The doctor wanted me to follow a traditional protocol of chemo and radiation I said no and walked away. 

Then five months later I was run over by a truck. As I stepped out the door of a truck that was rolling backward and I fell. Just as it was registering that the truck was rolling over my foot, I realized it was now rolling up my left hip.

Then a miracle happened, it rolled onto my belt breaking it and setting me free! I was able to roll away but I knew I was broken in multiple placesl. The doctor wanted to do surgery to attach plates and screws and wires. I asked him if I would heal without surgery. He said I would, so I refused surgery. He was a little shocked to say the least. 

I’m starting my career late but I’m moving forward anyway. It matters what you do with your life. You never know when it will be cut short.

My greatest desire is to make an impact! Not in my life, but in the lives of all those I can reach through music! My voice is my gift, and I want to give it to you.  

My vision encompasses gathering elements of Lord of the Rings, Skyrim epic orchestral music, and then adding powerful story lines and lyrics. Something really special is going happen, and people are going to be changed.

The Plan: It will cost at least $10,000 for a digitally recorded album, meaning all of the music would be created digitally, with no instruments producing live sound. It’s still pretty amazing quality but it lacks the intensity of a real Orchestra.

With the right effects, studio people, sound engineers and an orchestra, it would be out-of-this-world amazing! That would require doubling this goal. At $20,000 the plan changes. It would allow for a professional Orchestra and the ability to produce a really spectacular music video with the depth and attributes of the Hollywood movie. The sound quality would be second to none, and the final product would be a work of art!

If we PRESS hard, share a LOT and  link arms, we CAN triple this goal to $30,000, which would allow me to produce, not only this album, but at least one more album and multiple music videos over the next year. 

As we collaborate together in an effort to create a world Of Light, we can help others Escape to Another World!

Here are the numbers broken down: 

$10K-Digital Album $3K = Composers + Mixers for 10 songs $1K = Studio time + Alicia for 10 songs $1.5K = Production of physical product/CD = 1000 CDs 1st run $1.5K = Videographer + crew for 1 music video $500 = Post production of video $2K = Taxes $500 = Fulfillment shipping  

$20k-Album with Full Orchestra $7K = Orchestra + Orchestra studio time for 10 songs $3K = Composers + mixers for 10 songs $1K = Studio time + Alicia for 10 songs $2K = Production of physical product/CD = 2000 CDs 1st run $2K = Videographer + crew for 2 music videos $1K = Post production of video $3K = Taxes $1K = Fulfillment shipping  

$30K – Orchestra + some digital compositions for 2 albums $10K = Smaller orchestra + digital + composers + mixers for 20 songs $2.5K = Studio time + Alicia for 20 songs $3K = Production of physical product/CD = 2700 CDs 1st run $5K = Videographer + crew for 3 videos $3K = Post production of video $5K = Taxes $1.5K = Fulfillment shipping

Thank you for taking the time to filter through everything! I am so grateful for your willingness to look. 

This is where MAGIC, MYSTERY AND MUSIC meet!

Risks and challenges

Currently, I do not see any obstacles that will get in the way of completion of this album project. I have absolute confidence in the ability to overcome all obstacles. I have always had a gift (or maybe it's just tenacity) to overcome things - that is apparent in the actions I took to heal my own body from two very catastrophic episodes in one year! If I want to complete something, typically I just go and do until it's done..
